Tom Girardi Is Suffering From Memory Loss Amid Lawsuits, Says Brother: He's 'Incapable' Of Making Decisions
Another setback. Tom Girardi, the estranged husband of Real Housewives star Erika Jayne, is reportedly suffering from memory loss as his countless legal battles continue.
According to documents, Girardi's brother Robert filed a declaration in Tom’s involuntary bankruptcy case, claiming his older sibling is dealing with short-term memory loss and is in desperate need of a conservatorship.
The 81-year-old lawyer's brother, who would be his conservator, stated that he "is incapable of realizing and understanding the repercussions of the bankruptcy filings pending against him and the Debtor."

"Furthermore," he said, "my brother is not capable of making rational decisions with respect to his financial responsibilities and offers solutions and opinions that are factually impossible."
"I have attempted to discuss with my brother how to best respond to the Involuntary Petitions pending against the Debtor and while at times he appears to be aware of the filing of the Involuntary Petitions he needs to be reminded often," the filing continued. “My brother has short term memory loss, often asking those around him the same questions over and over."
The judge yet has to rule.

As OK! previously reported, Giardi has been at the center of several lawsuits.
The lawyer's firm partner, Robert Keese, sued to dissolve their business venture, 1126 Wilshire Partnership, last year. Keese, as well as fellow business partners Robert Finnerty and Jill O’Callahan, claimed Girardi never paid them the $315,000 in income they were owed from the partnership. They also alleged they each lost over $400,000 in equity.
In addition, Keese alleged that Girardi used the venture as collateral to secure $7.5 million in loans without their knowledge. The trio claimed he used the loans for his “own personal gain, benefit and use” and "never provided an explanation for his actions as the general manager."
