Tom Girardi is pleading the Fifth in the class-action suit against him by Lion Air Flight 610 victims.

Page Six has confirmed that the disgraced lawyer, 82, signed an affidavit on Aug. 6 that he would follow the advice of his counsel and invoke his “constitutional right to stay silent.”

Girardi and his firm’s assets were frozen as a result.

Jayne, 50, and Girardi were first sued by Edelson PC, a class-action firm, on behalf of the victims in December for allegedly embezzling funds meant for the orphans and widows of the accident through their “sham” divorce.

However, a judge ruled that victims can seek money from the reality star, as she received money into her business accounts from Girardi Keese prior to her November 2020 divorce filing.

Girardi lost his license to practice law in March, around the same time he was diagnosed with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
