SCOTS telecom legend Carol Smiley and former best friend Annabelle Craft are embroiled in a bitter feud over their Indus range.
After taking over Carroll’s own business plan, Diary Doll, the celebrity duo is no longer in a position to speak.
Sources claim that there were differences in the way the firm was run and the direction of the brand.
One told The Sun on Sunday: “Eventually, Annabelle felt pushed out.
It’s a shame because women were so close and went on vacation together.
“He even came up with the idea for the company during a vacation, but after the business is over, he doesn’t say anything anymore.
“It really shows that you should never have a happy business.”
Carroll, a 59-year-old TV presenter, and Annabelle, a 55-year-old tennis player, formed a company with their husbands, Coleman and Knight.
Carol’s other half, Alex Knight, owns a restaurant, while Annabelle’s husband, Mel Coleman, is an investment banker. But in 2016, Annabelle and Mail lost their directorial positions.
A year later, Carroll signed a global licensing agreement with shopping channel High Street TV to sell a range of underwear under a new name, Pretty Smart Pants.
She has since closed the business and is now holding a humanitarian wedding.
A promotional photo on Carroll’s website took Annabelle out of the picture and left no trace of her in her imagination.
Instead, on the site, Carol explained how she set up her business in 2012.
She writes: “It’s a simple idea (aren’t they the best?) With multi-award-winning brand smart underwear with a secret waterproof panel, giving confidence to women all over the world, for the small leak of life. Is.”
