Morning Quickies: Pippa Middleton Got Dumped!

  • Pippa Middleton has been dumped by her boyfriend, cricket player Alex Loudon, allegedly because he’s sick of the “circus” surrounding her and being trailed by paparazzi. A “friend” also says that Alex’s old money family didn’t think Pippa was “wife material.” And here’s another lovely quote from a “friend”: “Alex was always the one in control. Now he’s seen as little more than Pippa’s appendage and really, what man could cope with that?”  Sounds to me like you dodged a bullet, Pippa! [Daily Mail UK]
