Robin Roberts called it a "growing scandal" on Good Morning America as headlines are popping about Pippa Middleton in a convertible, with three rich French bachelors over the weekend.
But that wasn't the scandal. It was that one of them pointed what appeared to be a gun (real?) at the photographer who was taking photos of them as they drove on a Paris street in an Audi convertible.
The story broke in The Sun in England with the headline: "Smirking Gun."
Update: The gun is a fake, says one of the people in the car, Pippa's pal Arthur de Soultrait, whose fashion line, Vicomte A, sells silk ties. A spokesman for his company said today, "It was not a real gun. It was just a stupid joke," reported The Daily Beast. It's illegal to wave even a faux gun in public under French law.
Pippa's in the front seat. The driver, not yet identified, is turning around, pointing the gun. The Daily Mail reports that a person who saw the incident filed a complaint. The Daily Beast reports that all four of the people in the car could face arrest, and possibly, imprisonment for up to two years even if the gun was fake. The Paris Judicial Police are poised to launch a probe, reports the New York Post. Other reports on Today and GMA this morning say it is not likely Pippa will face any charges.
The night before the gun picture was taken, Pippa attended an elaborate costume birthday party for de Soultrait.
Pippa has not commented; the palace has said it does not speak for the former Kate Middleton's sister, a private citizen.
