Erika Jayne, AKA Erika Girardi, filed for divorce from her lawyer husband Tom Girardi  after 21 years in November citing irreconcilable differences.

Now a source close to the 49-year-old reality star is claiming that the couple’s marriage hit the skids because Erika believed Tom had ‘multiple affairs’, People reported on Friday.

Tom, 81, is currently facing a major lawsuit that accuses him of embezzling funds from his clients in order to keep up a lavish lifestyle for himself and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.

It's over: Girardi, filed for divorce from Tom after 21 years in November citing irreconcilable differences

Philandering: A source close to Erika Jayne claims that she filed for divorce from her lawyer husband Tom due to his  ‘multiple affairs’, People reported on Friday.

An insider claims that the reason Erika filed for divorce was ‘because he was cheating on her with multiple women’ and that the Bravo star has ‘known about his infidelity for years.’

The source added that Erika had ‘wanted to try and save the marriage’ but the final straw came when Tom allegedly flaunted his affair while she was starring in Chicago on Broadway.

‘When she was performing her last week on Broadway, he left her high and dry and was frolicking around town instead of supporting her and attending her shows,’ the source told People. ‘She realized she would never be a priority to him and that was her breaking point.’

They added that the writing had been on the wall for sometime and ‘the split was a long time coming.’ 

As for the timing, which came shortly before the embezzlement lawsuit, the insider dubbed that as just a coincidence.    

The lawsuit accuses Tom of misappropriating $2million from the families of victims who died in the 2018 Lion Air plane crash that plunged into the Java Sea killing all 189 people on board.

'When she was performing her last week on Broadway, he left her high and dry and was frolicking around town instead of supporting her and attending her shows,' the source told People. 'She realized she would never be a priority to him and that was her breaking point.'

On Monday US District Judge Thomas M. Durkin overseeing the plane crash victims’ case in Illinois froze Girardi’s assets and called his mishandling of money meant to go to the Indonesian children left orphaned by a plane crash ‘unconscionable’.  

Lawyers for Girardi on Monday said they had concerns about his mental competency and asked he undergo a mental health examination. But lawyers for the plane crash victims’ families called those claims ‘a sham’. 

As for the Girardi’s money troubles, they seem worse than ever with Tom admitting to a judge that he was virtually penniless after losing up to $80 million.

He is currently facing demands from creditors, high-interest lenders, lawyers, his first wife, and a security company that once guarded his Pasadena mansion for money – in addition to being accused of embezzlement.  

‘At one point I had about 80million or 50million in cash. That’s all gone,’ Girardi said this fall in testimony in unspecified case, according to a Los Angeles Times report.

‘I don’t have any money,’ he added.
