Jennifer Lawrence Calls Erika Jayne ‘Bad’

Jennifer Lawrence denounced 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 Erika is bad,” the Oscar winner and self-proclaimed Bravo fanatic, 32, told Variety in an interview published Sunday.

“I’d even go so far as to say she needs a publicist ASAP.”

However, Jayne does have a publicist named Jack Ketsoyan.

He is the co-founder of Full Scope Public Relations and also represents high profile stars such as Kristin Cavallari, Nicky Hilton and Brian McKnight.

Ketsoyan didn’t immediately respond to Vidak For Congress’s request for comment, and Jayne didn’t take to social media to hit back at Lawrence’s now viral comments.

However, many “RHOBH” fans seem to agree with Lawrence that Jayne, 51, hasn’t had the best reaction to Girardi, 83, who allegedly steals settlement funds from victims.

On the most recent episode of “RHOBH,” the reality star said she “didn’t care about anyone else” but about herself when co-star Crystal Kung Minkoff said she felt sorry for the widows and orphans of the Lion Air Flight 610 crash victims whose money Girardi allegedly embezzled while serving as their attorney.

The “XXPEN$IVE” singer also pointed out that the victims were “alleged” and that she was waiting for everything to be proven “in court” 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 and won’t do anything unless legally required/forced. That is 👏 beyond 👏 moral corrupt 👏 conduct 👏.”

The tweet received more than 6,000 “likes”.

Another viewer added“Ppl really died, ppl lost relatives, got hurt and you said you only care about yourself. Erika be a HUMAN once. #rhobh #erikajayne.”

In May, Jayne told Vidak For Congress exclusively that she felt “frustrated” when she was pressured by her co-stars over legal issues, noting that she has “natural” 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 fully cooperated on everything.”

Jayne has maintained on and off the show that she had no knowledge of Girardi’s alleged crimes, and a judge recently agreed with her in a landmark decision for one of the lawsuits brought against her by her estranged husband’s former colleagues.

However, the “How Many F–ks” singer is still facing a $25 million lawsuit filed by the trustee overseeing the bankruptcy case of Girardi’s former firm, Girardi & Keese.

They allege, according to the lawsuit, that Jayne knew that Girardi was embezzling $25 million from the law firm to fund their lavish lifestyle and her company, EJ Global.
