’s brother Robert has been appointed to take control of the 81-year-old’s daily activities and personal care. 

Tom’s attorney Rudy Cosio told the court on Monday, February 1, that Tom has suffered a medical emergency over the weekend while Robert had filed a petition to be given control over his brother and his estate during the legal battle — which has been approved and will be in effect until March 30.

Another hearing is scheduled for March 15 to discuss other requests made by Robert and he also asked for permission to place Tom in a facility to treat neurocognitive disorders such as dementia but it is not yet known what Tom’s medical emergency was.

In December, it was reported that Tom was secretly hospitalized for a “serious illness” several weeks earlier but the illness was not disclosed. However, attorney Evan Jenness said that there were concerns about Tom’s mental capacity.

Last month, Robert claimed that his brother had major health setbacks amid his divorce and other legal battles and petitioned for control over his finances because “[Tom] is incapable of realizing and understanding the repercussions of the bankruptcy filings pending against him and the Debtor.”

Jayne and Girardi split in November 2020 after more than 20 years of marriage and the couple found themselves in a class action from Edelson PC on behalf of the families of the victims of Lion Air Flight 610. The firm accused the pair of faking the split to “fraudulently protect Tom and Erika’s money,” and was “on the verge of financial collapse,” amid allegations that they embezzled $2 million in settlement funds “to fund outrageous lifestyles for himself and his soon-to-be ex-wife Erika Jayne.”

Girardi was also sued by former law partner Robert Keese, and business partners Robert Finnerty and Jill O’Callahan to dissolve their 1126 Wilshire Partnership venture in December. 

The three associates reportedly claimed that Girardi owes them all at least $315,000 in lost earnings and $442,000 each in lost equity which totals almost $2.3 million.

Jayne is said to be “in disbelief” about her Girardi’s legal woes. 

“The legal issues are unfolding one after another and she’s learning as everyone’s filing,” a source told Us Weekly. “As the whole world is finding out about it, she’s finding out about it. She’s reading about it in the press before she even sees it [from her lawyers].”

While Jayne is limited with what she can say, she is expected to address to split on RHOBH.
