Jennifer Lawrence blasted Erika Jayne’s response to the ongoing legal troubles surrounding the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and her estranged husband, Tom Girardi.
“I think that Erika is evil,” the Oscar winner and self-proclaimed Bravo fanatic, 32, told Variety in an interview published Sunday.
“I would go as far as to say she needs a publicist, like, ASAP.”
However, Page Six can confirm that Jayne does have a publicist, who declined to comment on Lawrence’s remarks.
A source tells us exclusively, though, that Jayne’s rep has “no control” over what the reality star says on the Bravo series.
Jayne has not taken to social media to clap back at Lawrence’s now-viral comments.
Many “RHOBH” fans appear to agree with Lawrence that Jayne, 51, has not had the best response to Girardi, 83, allegedly stealing settlement funds from victims.
In the most recent episode of “RHOBH,” the reality star said she did not “give a f–k about anybody” but herself when co-star Crystal Kung Minkoff said she empathized with the widows and orphans of Lion Air Flight 610 crash victims whose money Girardi allegedly misappropriated while serving as their attorney.
The “XXPEN$IVE” singer also pointed out that the victims were “alleged” and that she was waiting for all to be proven “in the court of law” and not the court of public opinion.
Queens of Bravo, a fan account, tweeted in response to the episode, “Erika *today* knows her adult life was funded on the backs of orphans and widows. On last night’s #RHOBH she told the world she doesn’t care & won’t do a single thing unless legally obligated/forced. That 👏 is 👏 beyond 👏 morally 👏 corrupt 👏 behavior 👏.”
The tweet received more than 6,000 “likes.”
Another viewer added, “Ppl actually died, ppl lost family members, got injured, and you said all you care about is yourself. Erika be A HUMAN for once. #rhobh #erikajayne.”
In May, Jayne told Page Six exclusively that she has felt “frustrated” when she is pressed by her co-stars on legal issues, noting that she “of course” has empathy for victims.
“I had empathy for them then, and I have empathy for them now, and I trust that they will be taken care of,” she told us at the time. “I have been cooperating with everything fully.”
Jayne has maintained on and off the show that she had no knowledge Girardi’s alleged crimes, and a judge recently agreed with her in a monumental decision for one of the lawsuits filed against her by her estranged husband’s former colleagues.
However, the “How Many F–ks” singer still faces a $25 million lawsuit filed by the trustee overseeing the bankruptcy case of Girardi’s former firm, Girardi & Keese.
They claim, per the lawsuit, that Jayne knew Girardi misappropriated $25 million from the law firm to fund their lavish lifestyle and her company, EJ Global.
