Caroline Stanbury’s business Gift Library crashes and burns — Investors and employees lash out.
Season 2 of ‘Ladies Of London’ has just wrapped and star Caroline Stanbury, 38 is in the midst of some serious chaos at her place of work — The Gift Library.
Funny thing is I received a very pleasant email last summer from an employee asking me if I could give them a link in an article I had written mentioning the Gift Library. I wrote back immediately that I was happy to oblige and gave them a link only to receive an automatic email back telling me the person had left GL and referring me to someone else (aka this person must have left hours after sending me the email).
So I emailed that person, Elle Metcalf and same thing. I finally gave up after going about 4 people deep. I knew something was off. I was wondering if the company still existed at all since apparently everyone had left in one fell swoop.
Caroline Stanbury was clearly very well respected on the docu-drama Ladies of London by her colleagues.
But she may be slightly less respected by her work-mates at the moment. According to a report in the Daily Mail her employees keep a dartboard in the office with her face on it. The report suggests she may also be in some trouble with her investors as the firm has been ‘burning through investors’ cash’.
I guess it doesn’t help that she is such a public figure and stars on a reality show all about opulent, lavish lifestyles of the rich and famous in London—hard to tell investors that you have no money to pay them when you are flying down the slopes in Courcheval.
The Daily Mail says that even her father, Anthony Stanbury, resigned as a director last summer.
It did not help that Caroline was posting selfies from the French Alps with heiress Chloe Green when her staff was not even sure whether they should come in or not.
Stanbury certainly does not appear to be in financial trouble on the show. She is married to Turkish financier Cem Habib.
Reports that she is worth £20 million are allegedly false according to a business associate’s statement to the DM.
