Erika added that she “encountered such resistance” from Tom when she tried to get them to talk. She also claimed that the status differences, given that he was 33 years older and wealthy when they first met, meant she “was still fired” if she brought up his hurt feelings.
The reality TV star shared that she intentionally filed for divorce on November 3 because it was Election Day 2020 and she “wanted it to be buried” in the news cycle, but the media nevertheless wrote about the news of her separation.
Indeed, E! News was the first to report the divorce, and the title of our exclusive report was shown onscreen during the episode. At the time, Erika issued a statement saying in part that it was “not a step taken lightly or easily”.
After her statement was released, a source close to Erika told E! News that Tom’s alleged infidelity was the reason for the breakup. Tom’s team did not respond to E! Request for comments from News.
In addition, the lawyer is currently facing legal issues after former clients accused him of fraud and embezzlement. Neither Tom nor Erika, who is also listed as a defendant in the lawsuit, have yet to file responses to those complaints.
