Are Pippa and ANDRE BALAZS the surprise couple of 2012? Of course, the Pippa we refer to is Pippa Middleton, the British socialite and sister of the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
Pippa arrived in New York on Sunday (September 2, 2012) and was almost immediately seen hanging out with multimillionaire hotelier Andre Balazs, which suggested she had flown to America to be with him. First stop for the pair was Andre's boutique hotel Sunset Beach on Long Island. They enjoyed a game of table-tennis, before Andre whisked off Pippa for an intimate dinner. One insider said there was "definite chemistry between the pair", adding, "Pippa was wearing red jeans and a white top. She was dressed sexy, but not too sexy". After she left the dinner, Middleton headed to New York's swanky Meatpacking District after making a late reservation at the 'Catch' hot-spot. According to sources, she stayed for "just over an hour" before stunning the exclusive clientele by heading out into the night and hailing herself a cab.
Balazs owns four hotels in New York, one in Miami, and three in Los Angeles, including the famous celebrity haunt Chateau Marmont. He has previously been linked to Uma Thurman and more recently CHELSEA HANDLER.
