A deal for Cap Juluca, an exclusive luxury hotel on Anguilla popular with celebrities, is now on thin ice.

Charles and Linda Hickox are working on a deal to sell the Cap Juluca resort to New York City investment firm the Carlton Group TRData LogoTINY. But the negotiations were compromised when Carlton Group asked past guests – which include Jennifer Aniston, Jerry Seinfeld, Caroline Kennedy and Bill Gates – to become investors, according to the New York Post.

The terms of the sale were not finalized before the e-mail was sent to former guests and the Hickoxes sent out another e-mail to the same guests saying, “Any communication you may have received from the prospective buyer has been done without our knowledge or consent,” and adding, “We would never consider approaching you for financing.”

A representative for Cap Juluca told the Post that “Cap Juluca is currently under contract for sale to the Carlton Group, but is still in the preliminary negotiation process, with the sale not final.” [NYP]Christopher Cameron
