Pippa Middleton is in hot water after an incident this weekend in Paris where she was photographed in the car with a man who looked to have flashed a gun at a photographer. Kate Middleton's sister was in an Audi convertible when the driver brandished an object resembling a weapon and pointed it straight down the lens of a paparazzo. Gun control is a sensitive issue right now in France after recent gun attacks that left seven people dead. Brandishing a gun in public in France is punishable by up to seven years in jail, and flashing a fake weapon carries a maximum of two years. Pippa was in Paris for a weekend of parties. She was seen being escorted by Antoine de Tavernost, son of a television mogul. Middleton has not commented on the controversy and the palace has not either, as it has said it does not speak for the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister.
It seemed everyone who is anyone was at Coachella over the weekend, including Paul McCartney, Aaron Paul, Josh Hutcherson, Paris Hilton, Lily Collins and Emma Watson, Vanessa Hudgens, Katy Perry, David Hasselhoff, and even the late Tupac. Of course, Lindsay Lohan, was also there, despite the judge telling her to stay away from clubs. TMZ reports Lohan didn't think she was going against the judge's advice because Coachelle isn't a club. Sources say Lilo stayed away from booze while at the festival.
Though she wasn't at Coachella, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was seen partying over the weekend. Clinton was seen dancing and even drinking a beer at a club in Cartagena, Colombia. The photos of Clinton drinking are a stark contrast to the recent photo that became the latest Internet meme of the secretary looking badass while using her phone on a military plane.
Everyone is still talking about the engagement on Angelina Jolie's finger. People was able to snag an up-close shot of the rock. Brad Pitt himself is said to have helped jeweler Robert Procop design the ring. "Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration with Robert," Procop's team said in a statement. "He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect."
