Real Housewives star Erika Jayne split from her husband of 20 years Tom Girardi because of “irreconcilable differences” and has moved out of their marital home and into a million-dollar Hollywood condo.

Erika’s divorce petition, which she filed earlier this month in her married name, also shows she and husband Tom have not listed the date of their separation, which was noted as “TBD” (to be decided), according to The Sun.

The court document also gives the date of their wedding as January 7th, 2000.

It adds that Erika, 49, has requested spousal support from Tom, 81, who’s said to still be living at their $US8.5million ($A11.7 million) mansion, and that he pays her lawyer fees.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika also says she is not aware of the extent of her estranged husband’s properties and debts, saying: “The true nature and extent of the parties’ separate property and debts is unknown to Petitioner at this time.”

The blonde mum of one is now living in a hipster-style, one-bed, two-bath condo that rents for $US7000 ($A9600) a month in what is referred to on a property website as one of the most “glamorous” historic buildings in LA.

The trendy apartment, filled with colourful works of art, has its own grand piano and access to a rooftop pool and gym.

Previous celebrity residents include Charlize Theron, Jason Statham and rock guitarist Dave Navarro.

Erika filed for her shock divorce on November 2.

The Sun revealed afterwards how Tom had been spotted enjoying drinks with a mystery blonde at The Beverly Hills Hotel in 2017 when Erika was rehearsing for her appearance on Dancing with the Stars.

He explained soon after the drinks date that the woman was a colleague and a friend.

It was also claimed by InTouch magazine that the couple had “lived separate lives for years” before the shock announcement.

Tom and Erika, who have a 32-year age gap, met in the early 90s at the famous Hollywood restaurant Chasen’s where she worked as a waitress.

The star was previously married to Thomas Zizzo. The couple have a son, Tommy, 26, who is now an LA cop.

As well as being a reality star, glamorous Erika has had nine number one singles on the Billboard dance chart.

In a statement to E! News about the end of her marriage, she said: “After much consideration, I have decided to end my marriage to Tom Girardi.”

She and Tom have no children.
