Pippa Middleton’s Friend Apologizes For Gun 'Joke'

‘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."

    Hey numbnuts, may you could stop posting about that nobody Kat Graham for 5 minutes and report Dick Clark died this morning, like all the good gossip sites have done.

    I'm English and can safely say most people in Engand do not like Pippa, she is an embarassment to Kate and a famewhore who is selling off her sisters fame and this totally contradicts the other man in the car who said Pippa found it a "funny joke"

    Pippa needs to be careful with who she hangs out with. All the guys she hung out with look like absolute creeps and would slip a roofie in your drink. Poor judgement on Pippas part. Hope her parents and Kate gave her a stern talk.

    Who gives a shit? KIDS are gunned down in America like it's nothing and they put her under fire for being in a car with someone who did something idiotic that she obviously didn't know that person was gonna do.

    POINTING a gun at ANYONE is not a fucking prank. he deserves to do the time. they say it is a "FAKE" gun, but who knows. how many kids have been killed by cops because they pointed one of the realistic looking guns at a cop. FUCK THE ENTITLED PUNK.

    Re: raypearson – I have to agree (even though you're sometimes mean to me) :o ) What no one much mentions is the danger which such "pranks" place the "pranksters". Aiming a real or toy gun as a "prank" or not opens one up to the risk that the one being aimed at may have a REAL gun and shoot as self-defense. Pippa's "friend" exposed all in his car to being potentially shot to death. Does Pippa have ANY security detail? If not, she needs to grow a brain already.

    This is not Arthur de Soultrait in this picture… and FYI no one in France cares about this story.

    She is shame to the royal family, Kate has some class but her sister not so much.

    I love Kate Middleton's youthful look and when I found out she uses products that contain Bee Venom, I was sold. Check out this article and see why it works!
