Last year, an alleged witness reported the incident to authorities, forcing Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews' father to appear in front of judges on Tuesday.

According to legal sources from French national news agency AFP, Matthews has been charged with the "rape of a minor by a person with authority over his victim." He has been slapped with charges for an alleged attack in Paris, and one in St. Barts, where he permanently lives with his wife Jane.

He denies the allegations and has been released on bail.

On TV he may be the King in the North, but IRL he's starting to become the king of cups.

Just weeks after being kicked out of an NYC bar for drunkenly bothering other patrons, Kit Harington has once again been spotted looking absolutely trashed.

This time the Game of Thrones star was in Paris, but it wasn't a romantic trip to the City of Love with fiancée Rose Leslie.

According to DailyMail.com, Kit was on a "lads' holiday" with two buddies who appeared to be (night's) watching out for him.

Good thing because he looked like he was about to wander into traffic!

Wait… Boys only getting plastered in Paris… Could this be a secret bachelor party before an even more secret wedding??

Hmm…. See the pics and judge for yourself HERE!

Arnaud's Instagram has become a telling source of his passions, his love of life, and the love he had for his young family — but it's also the place where he recently hinted at a new, difficult stunt that he was adding to his act.
