Tom Girardi has claimed that he believes estranged wife Erika Jayne did know about his embezzlement scandal despite her previously denying any wrongdoing.
The 82-year-old disbarred lawyer was recently seen leaving a lunch at an upscale restaurant in Los Angeles with some friends when he was asked about the involvement of his 50-year-old Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star ex.
A cameraman asked Tom - who once had an estimated fortune valued at $264million - about Jayne as he said: 'Did Erika know anything? Everyone wants to know.'

Tom - who has endured bankruptcy woes, allegations of embezzlement, and ailing health - stood quiet for a few seconds before one of his friends tried intervening and eventually convinced him to keep walking.

Last month, DailyMail.com revealed that Girardi is now living in a senior living home in Burbank, California after saying goodbye to living lavishly in his $13 million Pasadena mansion.

It's quite the change of scenery for Girardi, who has now moved out of his palatial Pasadena mansion, that was once on the market for $13million.

Girardi's move also follows claims from Jayne who said last week that she's been receiving death threats after it was claimed she allegedly spent $25million from Girardi's law firm on credit card purchases and fees for her glam squad.
Lawyers for the trustee overseeing the bankruptcy of the Girardi Keese firm allege the company transferred the money to Jayne's EJ Global LLC, according to a letter they sent to her lawyer, reports claimed last week.
The letter will be filed with the bankruptcy court as a part of the legal proceedings, a source told the outlet.
Jayne filed for divorce from Girardi in November and has denied wrongdoing after the law firm filed for bankruptcy and he was accused of misappropriating $2million intended for victims of Indonesia's Lion Air 610 crash.
