Ah, Mr. Gary Goldsmith. Carole Middleton‘s younger brother once brought a bit of shame to his extended family in 2009, when he offered drugs and prostitutes to an undercover News Of The World reporter at his Ibiza home, aptly named “La Masion de Bang Bang.”
Goldsmith was filmed cutting up cocaine in his kitchen, and spoke about being able to organize drug deliveries to London. He also bragged that once the future king and queen move into Buckingham Palace, he’ll have run of the place.
“I’ve got my own rooms, the Goldsmith Wing! I’m going to be the Duke of Slough!”
Today, news of Goldsmith’s exclusive interview with HELLO! Magazine hit the interweb, and heaven only knows what’s going through Carole’s head.
This time around, however, Goldsmith’s words were far tamer than they were some years ago. He invited the magazine to his Ibiza home for a photoshoot, and boasted about his famous nieces.
The Duchess of Cambridge “is this confident, clever, caring girl who has taken her responsibilities in marriage and job incredible seriously,” Goldsmith said. ”I think everyone thinks she’s sincere, in love and doing her job to the best of her ability.”
As for Pippa Middleton, Goldsmith wants the world to give her a break.
“She gets absolutely slaughtered for not working, and then when she does get a job, she gets attacked for doing that too.
“The poor girl just can’t win. It’s so unfair on her. I wish people would give her a break and let her get on with it.”
Catherine spent some time at her uncle’s Ibiza home after a brief split with Prince William in 2007, and he that she seemed “very low.”
Goldsmith’s reps would not comment on whether he was compensated for the interview, but HELLO! is famous for paying large sums of money in exchange for exclusives.
