The father-in-law of Pippa Middleton is currently being investigated by law enforcement officials in regard to the allegations surrounding the accusation that he raped a minor. The complaint in question was made a year ago, and supposedly happened between the years 1998 and 1999.
As reported by the London Evening Standard, the 73-year-old is suspected of forcing an underage individual to take part in inappropriate sexual activities. The father of James Matthews, a well-known financial adviser, as well as the former star of Chelsea FC, Spencer Matthews, was indicted in Paris over the rape report.
On March 29, Pippa Middleton's father-in-law was placed under judicial control due to him reportedly raping an underage individual despite having authority over her. Essentially, David Matthews was in a position of power when it came to the unnamed minor, thus making this accusation even more severe.
Pippa Middleton's father-in-law has vehemently denied these accusations, and according to a family spokesperson,"unequivocally contests the untrue and scandalous accusation." The 34-year-old English socialite married James Matthews in May of 2017, with the pair going against the suggestions given to them by members of the royal family that they should have a "traditional wedding." She proceeded to defy all aforementioned suggestions, wishing to have the wedding of her dreams.
