Insiders told TMZ that prior to their split, Jayne's money went straight to the 82-year-old or his law firm Girardi & Keese.

Insiders said the Pretty Mess author trusted that her estranged husband would handle the finances properly such as making sure paying music video production crew was handled appropriately but she didn't monitor it.

The sources said that Jayne's independent income, such as her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills salary, paid appearances and sponsorship deals went to EJ Global but that Jayne insists that Girardi managed the money.

In November, the "Roller Coaster" singer announced that she and Girardi had called it quits. One month later, they were accused embezzling settlement money intended for the families of the victims of the Lion Air Flight 610 plane crash in 2018.

The blonde beauty was sued for $25 million by the trustee handling the 82-year-old attorney's law firm's bankruptcy case.

Jayne has also denied that she knew anything about Girardi allegedly transferring $20 million in loans from funds taken from his firm to her entertainment company. She told her castmates on RHOBH that she was "kept away from the books."

During the first part of the season 11 RHOBH reunion, Jayne said that is it a misconception that she does not have "empathy and sympathy." "Truth is I do, but I'm in an almost impossible situation. And anyone that has been wronged, I want them to be made whole. … I'm talking about the alleged victims of all of Tom's alleged misdoings. And it's important that people hear that from me," she said.

However, insiders previously revealed that Jayne won't be watching the four-part reunion special because she doesn't want to relive the drama.
