‘Toy’ guns are just a bit of fun, guys!
Pippa Middleton, sister of England’s Queen-to-be, was involved in a media clusterfluck this past weekend when she was snapped in Paris sitting next to a driver who pulled out a “fake” gun and pointed it at nearby photographers.
This was all supposedly part of some game the Aristocratic crew were playing with the paps.
NOW, her French fashion-designer friend Arthur de Soultrait - who was with her at the time - has issued an official apology and explanation, claiming it was just a protective prank that got massively out of control.
UH, who just has a toy handgun that looks EXACTLY like a real gun chillin’ in their Audi glovebox? We’re still a little skeptical on the whole sitch…
Read Soultrait’s official statement …AFTER THE JUMP!
"Last Saturday, I was in a car with Philippa Middleton, and we were being followed by paparazzi.
She had been subject to constant and dangerous harassment by paparazzi throughout her time in Paris. The car was being driven by a friend of mine, whom Pippa had only met a few hours before. As a joke, my friend brandished a toy pistol in their direction.
Obviously Philippa had no idea that he was going to do that and told him to stop immediately. She did not find it funny.
I regret enormously that this incident happened, and especially that Pippa has been subject to the subsequent attention through no fault of her own. I have apologized to her for this."
