It's all fun and games until someone pulls a piece on a paparazzo.
As we previously reported, Pippa Middleton is at the center of a gun scandal after she and her friends went for a spin in a convertible last weekend.
After partying at a raucous bash in Paris until 5 a.m., Pips was spotted leaving in a car with friends, when the driver took out what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol and aimed it at a celebrity news photographer. But was the gun even real?
Sitting in the passenger seat, Pippa Middleton laughed.
Nobody's laughing now. Especially not her in-laws.
"This is embarrassing for them," a royal source says. The surprising scandal "has put [Kate Middleton] in a very difficult position," the source adds.
However, it appears that the excitement, which included reports that Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges, may have been overblown.
ABC News reports that the photographer claims he knew all along that the gun was a fake and has been telling people he never felt scared by it.
