Ashlyn Nassif: Glamorous EA Place lawyer, 27, charged with alleged multimillion dollar fraud

A glamorous lawyer who allegedly falsified a $150 million construction contract has been banned from contacting her high-profile property developer dad as she’s released on $2.6 million bail.

Ashlyn Nassif, 27, faced Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday charged with fraud after four family properties, including her famous father Jeans home and office, were raided yesterday.

Mr Nassif, who is in Lebanon, posted a supportive message to his daughter on Instagram over the top of a video of a child playing on a beach.

‘To my daughter, NEVER forget that I love you. I hope you believe in yourself as much as I believe in you,’ the message read.

‘When life try’s (sic) to knock you down, I will ALWAYS have your back. I can’t promise to be here the rest of your life, but while (sic) I can promise is that I will LOVE YOU the rest of mine.’

Though aimed at his daughter’s legal woes, the video is a frequently reposted reel that does not depict Nassif and was not created by the real estate tycoon.
