How’s this for embarrassing?
Socialite and onetime reality star (High Society) Tinsley Mortimer Mercer was arrested Saturday night in Palm Beach, according to police records obtained by The Palm Beach Daily News.
Officers responded to a call about an “unwanted guest” from a resident of El Dorado Lane. The resident has been ID’ed by an anonymous source as sugar heir Nico Fanjul, whom she dated for a “hot minute” but has been fixated on for more than two years. The Daily News reports Mortimer had already been issued a trespass warning at the El Dorado back in October.
According to the most recent police report, officers found Mortimer “crying and screaming irrationally stating that her boyfriend … was inside the house with another woman and she only wanted to retrieve her purse.”
Never miss a local story.
Cops charged the 40-year-old Southern Charm author with trespassing; she was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and released roughly two hours later. Her angry looking mugshot made the rounds on the Internet and some of the Botox-related eyebrow comments were downright cruel.
A court date was set for May.
After her 2012 divorce from Standard Oil heir Topper Mortimer, the real life Gossip Girl (who actually had a cameo on the show) moved to Palm Beach from NYC. She’s been a fixture on the South Florida society scene, attending the Blacks’ annual gala in 2014 and hanging out with Flo Rida.
Shockingly, Mortimer is not big on social media. Her most recent post on Instagram was during football season at Sun Life Stadium taking in a Miami Dolphins game.
Some advice, Tinsley: You’re a beautiful, talented woman. Call the Millionaire Matchmaker and find someone new — stat.
