London - (Party Pooper-Scooper): White House wannabe celeb gatecrashers Michaele and Tareq Salahi are in shock.
A London 'lord of the manna' Edward Davenport, 43, founder of the original Gatecrasher Balls, has been busted by the Serious Fraud Squad in a £14m scam.
The self-styled Lord of Giffords has been charged along with two accomplices with deception, conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering.
"At this stage there is no evidence that the Salahis have ever been on Davenport's books," a SFO source commmented today.
"But whoever put them up to it in the first place could be an old pro."
Meanwhile in Washington three Secret Service officers have been suspended following the Salahi prank.
Responding to a House Homeland Security Committee panel this week Secret Service chief Mark Sullivan denied a transatlantic conspiracy involving the Salahis and Davenport.
"And what's more there's absolutely no proof of the Obamas ever being Davenport's top US Clients!"
