Naomie Olindo’s former business partner, Virginia “Ginny” Cox, has officially filed a lawsuit against the “Southern Charm” star, and the claims are serious. According to Cox, Olindo allegedly withheld funds from him and failed to pay him half of the company’s profits. The lawsuit states: “Because Olindo controlled the bank account, Plaintiff was unaware of the amount of funds Olindo was misappropriating” (via page six). This became a serious problem, as the company was reportedly “very successful and profitable” and generated “significant gross receipts and substantial profits”. Now, Cox is suing the reality star for breach of contract, partnership dissolution, fraud and defamation.
However, Olindo’s lawyer has denied the claims, telling Page Six: “These allegations made by a disgruntled former employee are false and misleading. We will be filing a formal response to these allegations soon which will help set the record straight.”
This news is very different from what fans are used to hearing about Olindo, who left “Southern Charm” in 2020 but returned for Season 8. Most recently, he attended BravoCon 2022 in New York City and revealed that he officially has a new boyfriend, for People. She seemed to be in high spirits at the event according to a post dedicated to him on Instagram. Only time will tell how this lawsuit will play out and if Olindo will break his silence on the situation.
