Naomie Olindo, a star on the Bravo series Southern Charm, is currently in hot water legally. Following her success in reality TV, Olindo launched her own fashion brand called L’Abeye in 2018. The company has built a loyal following on Instagram over the years, and Olindo frequently promotes the brand through social media. Despite L’Abeye’s success to date, the reality star may have concerns about her business.
According to legal documents obtained by Page Six, Olindo’s former business partner Virginia “Ginny” Cox is suing her for fraud and breach of contract. Cox claimed Olindo approached her when she started L’Abeye and offered a 50 percent stake in the company. They worked together on the brand and were business partners — except Olindo reportedly secretly had a lawyer list her as the “sole member and owner” of the company, even though they agreed to be 50/50 owners.
In a statement to Page Six, Cox’s attorney said: “Ms Cox is only asking about what the couple agreed from the start. She remains confident that Ms. Olindo will do the right thing and recognize her as the owner of the company. Ms. Olindo has consistently done so in the past.” There are several other issues Cox alleges in her lawsuit that would put Olindo in serious legal trouble , if they turned out to be true.

She appeared to be in high spirits at the event, based on a post dedicated to her on Instagram.
