Ever since Meghan Markle married into the British royal family, her father Thomas Markle has been giving humiliating interviews over and over again as he tries to mooch off of his daughter’s fame. Now, sources are saying that Meghan has finally had enough.
The U.K. Express reported that Meghan has been telling those close to her that her dad has been using “emotional blackmail” to try and manipulate her, but it’s not working because she has had “enough already.”
“For the life of her, she can’t understand why he’s digging such a deep hole for himself and to say things like, ‘It would be easier for her if her dad died,'” a friend of Meghan’s said. “She said she just wishes her dad would ‘stop blathering’ to the press. That’s the one birthday gift she wanted from her father.”
The friend went on to say that Meghan is not going to contact her father anytime soon because she is “deeply hurt” and can’t trust him to “keep their conversation private.”
“Meghan is big on being true to herself and taking care of herself, and if this means avoiding toxic relationships so be it,” the friend said. “It’s not like she’s never ever going to speak with her dad again, but certainly not now, not in this climate.”
This comes a week after Thomas gave yet another interview in which he slammed the royal family.
“I tell you, I’ve just about reached my limit on Meghan and the Royal Family,” Thomas said. “I’m about to unload on them. Perhaps it would be easier for Meghan if I died. Everybody would be filled with sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I’d hate to die without speaking to Meghan again. If Meghan never speaks to me again, I don’t know how I can go on without my heart breaking. They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won’t be silenced. I refuse to stay quiet.”
It’s sad that Meghan’s father is using his daughter’s fame to try and get publicity himself. If he really wants to have a relationship with her again, perhaps he should stop talking to the press and reassess his priorities in life!
