Thomas Markle has been ‘sending letters’ to Duchess Meghan in LA


I’ve found it interesting to see Thomas Markle go quiet over the past few months, especially as the Duchess of Sussex’s court case against the Mail heats up. Toxic Tom is central to the case on both sides – from what we can already tell from Meghan’s filings, she believes that her father is an ill man who got exploited by the British press, and that various British outlets gave Thomas a script to read and he was paid for all of it. That’s what I believe too, except I don’t think Toxic Tom was really exploited – I think he made a series of awful choices to lie about his daughter for money.

I didn’t keep up with the frenzied reporting around Toxic Tom and whether he would actually testify against his daughter in the lawsuit. It should be interesting, mostly because I don’t think he’ll be able to keep all of his lies straight and will easily fall apart if he’s cross-examined to any degree. But… he’s been surprisingly quiet for months. Did those paid interviews dry up or is he trying to get more material to use to sell out his daughter?

Hoping to make amends. Meghan Markle‘s estranged father, Thomas Markle, is “continuing to try and get in contact” with his daughter since she and Prince Harry moved to Los Angeles, a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

The retired lighting director, 75, who lives in Mexico, has been “sending letters to the house” with hopes of reaching the former Suits star, 38, who relocated to California with her husband, 35, and their 14-month-old son, Archie, in March. Despite his best efforts, the source says his “letters remain unopened.”

Meghan and her father have had a strained relationship since he was caught staging paparazzi photos ahead of her May 2018 wedding. Thomas was set to walk his daughter down the aisle at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England, but announced days before the ceremony that he could no longer attend after suffering a heart attack. An insider told Us at the time that while the retired actress’ relationship with her father “has always been strained,” she was “upset and disturbed by the entire ordeal.” Their relationship was further strained after Thomas gave several interviews in which he slammed the royal family, Harry and even Meghan.

A closer examination of the text messages Meghan already provided to the court between herself, her father and Prince Harry show that she was wise to Thomas’s bullsh-t from the start. She knew something was up. Even though she attempted to be in full communication with him for months before the wedding, he still lied to her repeatedly, then faked a heart attack, refused to speak to her and spent two years smearing her for money. So no, she’s not going to answer his f–king letters.

    Ahhhhhhh…I was wondering how long this would take. I’m surprised it took THIS long for the Messy Markle Hour to resurface….

  2. Brit says:

    I doubt this is true but if it is, the mail probably is making him do this so she can drop the case. That man is a puppet, it’s clear as day and the Mail has been doing everything in their power to stop this from getting to trial. The threats, constant stalking and harassment, Thomas threatening to an interview every 30 days and to testify etc and nothing has worked. They should’ve left that woman alone. Getting the Markles out is not going to change anything.

  3. aquarius64 says:

    Bad Dad is terrified he’s going to be called to testify by DM in the lawsuit. TT wants Meghan to drop it because once the letter is redacted it will fully re He knows if Meghan’s lawyers don’t take him down the Fail will if they lose the suit. Too late Daddio…if Meghan reaches out it could be construed as witness tampering. I bet the Markles are afraid of Omid’s book.

    • Bri says:

      I doubt he’ll testify because that man has a trail of lies and the Mail knows that. He’s contradicted himself, implicated the Palace and KP team in the last interview. That may be another reason why Piers backed off because Thomas got a platform because of him. They would destroy him on the witness stand.

      • Anya says:

        Oh, I’d love to see how he implicated the Palace or the KP team. Do you remember what he said?

      • GuestWho says:

        @Anya – he declared that the royal family “owed him” and he name-checked kp’s Jason K.

  4. S808 says:

    Yeah, I believe that door is forever closed. I think Meghan is really nice but even she has a line and he’s flown past it. He’ll never know Archie (or any future children, should they have any more) and he has no one to blame but himself. Hope he put that blood money into a savings account to last him.

    • VS says:

      That man is not her father and is no father to anyone………..I would never EVER allow someone to use me to hurt my child no matter what!!! as far as I am concerned, Meghan should just assume he does not exist anymore………he should crawl back to the hole he just left!

    • bettyrose says:

      In the early days, Thomas reminded me a little of my father who can be very hurtful and loves to turn family members against each other. But Thomas has gone well beyond anything my father would ever do. If I were suddenly rich and famous, I can imagine him saying some cruel things to me privately (or through other family members), but he wouldn’t do it publicly. That is next level toxic.

      • Tealie says:

        I agree that man is sadistic at best, coerced or not you could never get me to do something like what he’s done it’s just beyond disgusting and repulsive. I truly hope Meghan remains strong and never talks to him again, i would not put it past him to try and get to her to secretly take pictures of Archie and their personal belognings to sell.

  5. Missskirrtin says:

    Hopefully he doesnt invite himself to their home (outside entrance) for pap strolls and photo ops.

    • Tealie says:

      Luckily i think they live in a gated community that is not open to non residents! But i wouldn’t put it past him to try

  6. Rapunzel says:

    How does he have her address to write to her? Did his friends at the DM give it to him?

    • Enny says:

      Don’t think it’s that hard to find out Tyler Perry’s address, it’s probably on every star map peddled on H’wood Blvd…

    • BayTampaBay says:

      How does Us Weekly know the “letters remain unopened”?

      Who leaked this story?

      • kelleybelle says:

        Exactly, I call BS on this whole thing. I don’t think he would even try. This is just to milk more out of this pathetic story. Nobody close to Meghan would be leaking such BS.

      • Jay says:

        Yeah, this is likely her dad’s attempt to gain sympathy – she’s not even opening my letters! I can’t imagine the Sussexes or anybody in their household talking. Unless (digging out my tinfoil tiara) this is a story they planted to catch a leak?

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        Could be Toxic Tom putting out the letters are being returned, unopened, perhaps even marked “Not Deliverable” or “No one at this address by that name”, or even “Refused” scrawled across the front and dropped back in a mailbox.

        Let’s face it. Just because everyone is SAYING they’re at Tyler Perry’s house doesn’t MAKE it so….could be a HUGE red herring. Unless they’re spotted on the grounds….?

      • BayTampaBay says:

        “Unless (digging out my tinfoil tiara) this is a story they planted to catch a leak?”

        @Jay – Your theory is the only one that makes sense if this story is NOT 100% made-up hater-fiction BS.

      • BarbN says:

        US Weekly is just one glossy-paper step above the National Enquirer, which is only good for lining a bird cage or wrapping up garbage. USW makes up stories ALL THE TIME. I”m sure this one is no exception.

    • Enis says:

      It’s not hard to find the address of the house with a quick Google search.

    • C-Shell says:

      Tyler Perry’s address is apparently easily accessed online. A Meghan-hater troll on Twitter a few days ago started up a “letter bomb” campaign, publishing the mailing address in her tweets. The Sussex Squad started tweeting the FBI, the LAPD, and various law enforcement orgs, not to mention reporting her to Twitter. They also found all her other social media accounts, her identity and her employer (she’s a school secretary in Ontario, evidently). She was forced to take down all her accounts, but she and her contacts might still get calls and visits from security and law enforcement agencies.

      • Guest with Cat says:

        A secretary at a school is THAT unhinged? Good grief, we do need to do something to make mental health care more accessible to people in the UK, US and Canada and wherever else ordinary people leading otherwise normal lives can turn this dysfunctional over something that has nothing at all to do with their life.

      • Ginger says:

        They also fired her. They messaged the school and they said she longer works there because they don’t condone bullying of any kind.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I am sure that the USPS is not delivering mail directly to the Tyler Perry House. I will bet my last dollar that security experts examine all mail before it is delivered to The Duke & Duchess of Sussex.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        You can probably address a letter to The Duchess of Sussex Los Angeles CA and it would get to her. Hopefully she has informed delivery and someone is taking care of the mail for them and is stamping them Return to Sender with a big fat middle finger.

  7. Lucylee says:

    Slow news week.

  8. Enny says:

    The British tabs aren’t engaging with him or his Other Daughter because of the ongoing litigation. So now he’s really grasping at straws to drum up some kind of news and sell it to any publication that will still listen.

  9. molly says:

    Meghan has been wise to his bullsh*t her entire life, which is why I always found the “why won’t she just taaaaaalk to him” takes to be so enraging. She knew exactly how it would go down because it’s happened countless times to her before.

    Believe people (especially women!) when they draw boundaries in their lives.

    • Sarah says:

      I agree completely. Firstly, it’s her decision. Secondly, we all now have ample evidence that she made a very sound decision for the benefit of her mental health. Leave her alone.

      This touches a sore point for me as I finally fully ended my relationship with my father a few years ago and occasionally my boyfriend (of ten years so they met once and he’s had plenty of time to hear from me and various others what my father is like) STILL sometimes asks if I’ve heard from him or plan to get in touch. Nope and nope. He means well but needs to respect my decision.

      • molly says:

        It’s because those people can’t imagine cutting their own parents or family out of their lives. Which, awesome, I’m glad you’ve been loved and supported your whole life by honest, selfless people. That’s not the case for everyone, so stop projecting your own experience onto me.

  10. GR says:

    Poor Meghan. He sounds like such an awful parent.

  11. Marivic says:

    The Press has made up this story again. They have no access to Meghan . It’s all fiction .

    • kelleybelle says:

      Yes, absolutely BS. They’re milking it for all it’s worth. No one would know this anyway and if they did, certainly wouldn’t be talking to that US rag. Besides, he’s too lazy to write her and the only reason he ever did was to bum money. That ship sailed years ago.

  12. Vanessa says:

    I think the press is becoming more aggressive and desperate to get Meghan and Harry to drop their lawsuits against them. So now their going back to their original smearing tactic back to Meghan father I think their hoping since she mentioned him in her lawsuit she would wanted to protect him and somehow he would gain access to Meghan giving them access as well. I think Meghan is done with her father there’s not a chance he will never be allowed back in her life he untrustworthy. I do believe that William and Kate and the courtiers are guilty of conspiracy with Thomas to first stop the marriage from happen and that didn’t work so they are continually trying their best to undermine Meghan and Harry any way they can .

  13. Mariane says:

    “letters remain unopened.”is clue that this is complete fiction. As if they have eyes inside the mansion!! I mean they are not even bothering to make it believable🤦‍♀️
    The tabloids are desperate to sell their stuff and using Meghan is lucrative hence the 24/7 reports. I mean look at the number of podcasts that started since the sussexs engagement. Even after they moved away, the british press cant seem to let them go. The fact that sky news interrupted their broadcast to air a recorded video is one of the examples of how much they are obsessed with her

    • GuestWho says:

      She could have sent them back unopened…which would be pretty funny.

      But I absolutely agree this article is nonsense. It’s US Weekly ffs.

  14. Osty says:

    No one knew where they were staying except the sussexes and a few trusted people whom I doubt will tell Thomas in march so which house was Tommy sending those letters?
