Shameful! Pippa Middleton’s Father-In-Law David Matthews Arrested For ‘Raping A Child On Caribbean Island’

British socialite and Kate Middleton’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton’s father-in-law is accused of raping a minor on the exclusive French island of St Barts – where he owns a £5,000-a-night hotel.Multi-millionaire David Matthews, 74, has lived with wife Jane on the Caribbean retreat for more than 20 years. He was seized by cops from France’s child protection unit at Paris Orly Airport on Tuesday over two historic rape allegations. After 48 hours in custody Mr Matthews – dad to Pippa’s husband James, 42, and I’m A Celebrity star Spencer, 29 – then appeared at the city’s Palais de Justice on Thursday and was later charged with the rape of minor. Mr Matthews strenuously denies all the allegations.The authorities now have six months to decide if he will be brought to trial. Mr Matthews was released on bail, with a number of conditions which were not disclosed by French authorities. A Paris judicial official said: “I ­confirm that David M was placed in police custody on March 27 at the Brigade for the Protection of Minors. The Paris public prosecutor’s office opened a judicial investigation, overlooked by an examining magistrate, who charged him with the rape of a minor. He was placed under judicial supervision. The investigation alleges that the crimes were committed in 1998 and 1999. The investigations will now continue as a judicial investigation and will be led by an investigating judge.” The swoop came as Mr Matthews arrived in Paris on his way to the South of France. It follows a police probe which began last September.Photo Credit: Getty
