The gap between Duchess Meghan, 40, and her family is growing. After her former head of public relations Jason Knauf released secret autobiographical “finding freedom” emails to the public, her half-sister Samantha Markle, 56, now wants to file a lawsuit against her, the Mirror reports.
According to Markle, Meghan made false allegations about her and her family. The ex-actress sent this letter to her former head of PR, who, in turn, sent it to the authors of her autobiography “Finding Freedom”. The emails became public in the appeal process due to the British press publishing a confidential letter to Meghan’s father.
Meghan has passed on information about Samantha Markle
The emails read: “When Meghan was with Harry, Samantha changed her name back to Markle and built a career creating stories to sell to the press.”
but that is not all. Meghan is also said to have written, “I have lost custody of the three children from different fathers.” Meghan also stressed that she does not have close ties to her siblings Samantha and Thomas Markle Jr. (55), who allegedly dropped out of high school.
Half-sister defends herself against allegations
These allegations are too many for Samantha Markle. I will file a defamation suit in the United States. In the UK, I follow privacy and data protection laws, as the legal window of opportunity for defamation in the UK is only one year.”
Markle also says: “I’ve never lost custody of any children. She says I changed my name when I met Harry – but I made the name change documents public much earlier.” If Samantha had her way, the Markle family had a normal family life: “But she wanted to alienate us and make the outside world think we were divided. To discredit us – as an excuse to keep us all away from the wedding.” (BSN)
