On the other hand, Erika Jayne said,

 “I can’t get a divorce right now. Like, I’m legally separated, so my life has moved on and everything is separate. But I can’t get a divorce right now. There’s so much legal s–t going on. It’s a weird time and I’m really ready for it to be over.”

Further Details

According to the sources, Erika filed for divorce from Girardi in November 2020. Though, they were together for 21 years. The reason for their separation has not been cleared by any sources yet. After one month, this pair was accused of stealing $2 million in settlement funds from the families of Lion Air Flight 610 victims.

Also, in January she was dismissed from the fraud lawsuit. Besides this, Jayne is currently facing a $50 million racketeering lawsuit and a $2.1 million “aiding and abetting” lawsuit. However, last month, she was asked to return the diamond earrings which were worth $750,000. It was proved that the earrings were purchased from stolen funds.

Similarly, Erika and Jayne are in touch with each other despite the separation. In May, Jane said,

“Of course [I take his calls]. He’s not well, and so he’s in a state of decline and sometimes it’s good and sometimes [he thinks] I’m someone else. So it’s fine.”

More Explanation

Everyone is dealing with their pain by themselves. It is not necessary that we cannot enjoy, and laugh if we are in pain. Being together for 20 years and then separating from them is not easy. Therefore, Erika Jayne shared her point of view regarding this in her life unfolding on screen.

Furthermore, she says,

“I think that gets lost in the sensationalized version of it all. This was someone I was married to for over 20 years and was with, like, 23 [years]. It’s difficult.”

In addition, the television personality continued,

“There are real moments of sadness, real moments of — like when the holidays came around, you know, for Christmas, I would just remember how much fun we would have. … But what are you going to do with that? These things happen in life. They happen to everyone; everyone’s mourning something.”

On the other hand, she also shares that she is happy as a single woman now. She is more focused on her goals, not that one. Erika further said,

 “I am single for the first time in my adult life and it feels good. It’s like being a big teenager again. And I’m OK like this.”
