Arthur de Soultrait Defends Pippa Middleton, Apologizes For Gun Indicent

by at . Comments

Arthur de Soultrait, a friend of Pippa Middleton, is coming to her defense after one of their friends, Romain Rabillard, aimed a gun at photographers last weekend.

Romain, Arthur, Pippa and one other individual are now subject to potential prosecution for the bizarre scandal, which shocked the French, US and UK media.

Although Kate Middleton's 28-year-old sister has yet to address the scandal, Soultrait was apologetic in a statement on Wednesday, in which he defended her.

He also said the gun wielded at celebrity news media was fake.

"Last Saturday I was in a car with Philippa Middleton, and we were being followed by the paparazzi," Soultrait explains of the late night/early-morning incident.

"The car was being driven by a friend of mine, whom Pippa had only met a few hours before," Soultrait, 30, said of Romain Rabillard, a 36-year-old attorney.

"As a joke, my friend brandished a toy pistol in their direction."

"Obviously Philippa had no idea that he had the pistol, or that he was going to do that, and told him to stop immediately. She did not find it funny."

Pippa was seen smiling in the gun photo that surfaced after the incident, but it's unclear if she was smiling at that specifically, or who knew what.

There have also been reports that the paparazzo in question knew the piece was fake and laughed it off, rather than feeling threatened in the least.

Reports of Pippa facing criminal charges may be overblown, but she's faced plenty of public backlash, and her sister's royal in-laws surely aren't thrilled.

Giving the Best Man's speech at a weinddg. Is that something that fills you with dread, or is it something that you expect to do at some point in your life. What would you do if tomorrow your best friend gives you a call to announce that he is going to get married to the girl he has been dating for the last couple of years, and he wants you to be the best man. He tells you he is confident he has made the right choice (in selecting you as his best man, not in selecting his partner for life) and will leave it up to you to come up with the perfect weinddg speech. It's a sudden announcement; the weinddg is to be held in a matter of weeks. The pressure is on. How do you come up with the perfect weinddg speech in such a short time? Is the Internet the answer?

I love you Pippa. I had a dream about me having a fabolous but. But after reading about year adventure I can imaging why I had that dream. You all did what you did; 3 guys with you Pippa. I did some similar thing some month ago being pissed up with the laws in my country telling them I would do all in my power to change the law threathing them with a non physcial shotgun too. Photographers and media can be a bit too noisy about personal affairs. You made them understand it better then ever before since the tragic death of Diana. Thank you so very much. Pippi
