Seems like Pippa Middleton has found herself in some new controversy, and this time it has nothing to do with her knickers, her boyfriends or the shape of her bottom, rather it has everything to do with her keeping company with a male companion who was photographed brandishing a gun at a photographer following the pair in Paris.
The incident happened this weekend whilst Pippa was in the passenger seat with three male friends, one of whom was Paris fashion entrepreneur Arthur de Soultrait for whom’s 29th birthday party the quartet had just attended and had left at 6am that morning, (he is seen wearing a blue baseball cap in the back) when suddenly without provocation the male driver pulls out a semi automatic gun and begins brandishing it a photographer following in pursuit. In the image captured by the photographer, Pippa can be seen noticeably smirking, having the time of her life.
At present the Paris Judicial Police are set to launch a probe and the quartet now risk serious legal consequences.
thesun.co.uk: “If the evidence points to her involvement, she will be prosecuted. Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest and interrogation.”
The source confirmed that if the gun was REAL, brandishing it in a public place is punishable by up to seven years’ jail “for all parties involved”.
Even if it was FAKE the maximum jail term is two years. The source said: “Certainly if you were in a car and knew somebody was using a gun to warn people off you’d be liable to arrest.”
In the end what are we to think? Pippa in the space of one evening has been able to sully the Royal’s image that they have worked so long and hard to cultivate and ingratiate with a public who one suspects wants to like them very much but must now be somewhat circumspect as more evidence emerges that shows them off as caricatures and presumptive charlatans who are prone to misbehavior and casting questions who really wants to be involved with a ‘celebrity’ figure type when her and her ‘thug’ mates are now pointing guns at camera people who in essence help keep them famous and flush to begin with. Sod off Pippa!
