Samantha Markle’s defamation case against her sister was dismissed

The good news just kept rolling in last night – Trump indicted, Gwyneth acquitted, and Samantha Markle’s dumbf–k lawsuit was thrown out of court. Previously, I tried to unpack Samantha’s defamation lawsuit against her sister Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex. Basically, it came down to Samantha trying to prove that Meghan “defamed” her when Meghan spoke to Oprah about her childhood, which Meghan described as feeling like “an only child.” Plus, Samantha claimed that Finding Freedom defamed her, only Meghan did not write or publish Finding Freedom. The case was crawling its way through Florida’s civil courts, and it even looked like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might have to sit for depositions for this nuisance suit. But no, the judge dismissed this mess on Thursday.

Samantha Markle has lost her defamation case against her half-sister, the Duchess of Sussex, after a judge in Florida granted a motion to dismiss. Samantha lodged her case in March 2022, when she sued Meghan Markle for “defamation and injurious falsehoods” along with “malicious lies” in a number of alleged instances, including during the duchess’s well-publicized sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey alongside husband Harry.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell granted Meghan’s motion to dismiss after Samantha claimed the pair’s relationship “unravelled” as the duchess’s star rose and she eventually met Prince Harry.

Three of the issues Samantha noted in the lawsuit stemmed from Oprah’s 2021 interview, where Meghan claimed that she was “an only child,” that she had only met her half-sister “a handful of times,” and that Samantha had changed her surname to Markle after Meghan started dating Prince Harry so that she “could cash in on her newfound fame.”

“A reasonable listener would not think that Defendant was suggesting that she has no half-siblings, that Plaintiff does not actually exist, or that Plaintiff is not related to her,” the ruling reads regarding Meghan’s claim to Oprah that she was an “only child.”

“As a reasonable listener would understand it, Defendant merely expresses an opinion about her childhood and her relationship with her half-siblings. Thus, the Court finds that Defendant’s statement is not objectively verifiable or subject to empirical proof…. Because the statement is not ‘capable of being proved false, it is protected from a defamation action.’”

Samantha claimed in her lawsuit that Meghan told Oprah that the pair had only met “a handful of times”—but the court wrote that it could not verify that allegation: “This statement is nowhere to be found in the interview transcript.” The court ultimately denied the claim without prejudice and with leave to amend.

Similarly, Samantha’s claim she changed her surname for fame was dismissed “because it is explicitly contradicted by the transcript,” noting the allegations Samantha noted were not true to what Meghan actually said during the interview: “She changed her last name back to Markle, and I think she’s in her early fifties at that time, only when I started dating Harry. And so I think that says enough.”

The claims were dismissed without prejudice, though Samantha could file an amended complaint within 14 days of the order.

In another instance, Samantha alleges her half-sister “contributed false information” to the authors of the book, Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family—specifically mentioning Chapter 12, titled: “A Problem Like Samantha.” However, the court agreed with Meghan: “Defendant argues that the claims based on Finding Freedom must fail because she did not publish the book,” the ruling reads. “The Court agrees.”

The court denied Samantha’s request for attorneys’ fees and costs under the anti-SLAPP statute without prejudice, as premature.

[From The Daily Beast]

From what I can see, there hasn’t been a ruling on whether Samantha will have to pay for Meghan’s legal fees, but the court did say that Meghan won’t have to pay Samantha’s fees or anything else. Man, it’s been awfully quiet in White Markle-ville for a while? No updates from Mexico, and Samantha just got her delusional ass handed to her. What a shame. No, really – it’s a shame that Meghan’s relations are so f–king tacky and despicable. I can’t even imagine doing this to a family member. Anyway, I hope Samantha is broke as f–k and she crawls under a rock.

    I saw this and cackled. I doubt that lady will stop harassing Meghan but she can keep humiliating herself. I’ll keep watching, pointing and laughing.

    I some deranger crying on Twitter about how Duchess Princess Meghan “always wins and is never held to account.”

    Keep winning Duchess Meghan! Keep crying deranged racist.

    • equality says:

      Are the derangers incapable of reading? The judge kept it simple in saying it wasn’t what Meghan said. How do they want someone accountable for something she never did?

      • TheWigletOfWails says:

        They delude themselves in their echo chambers of hate, then cry when the law or evidence provided doesn’t agree with the lies they’ve created about her.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Scammy will never stop stalking and harassing Meghan and her family and nutjobs like her don’t feel shame or humiliation. All the see is attention and she has become addicted to the attention and drama that being connected to Meghan gives her.

      • Elizabeth Phillips says:

        I think she thought if she could get in the same room with Meghan, she could get pictures she could sell.

    • Debbie says:

      I guess the only response to those derangers who are angry and frustrated that Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, always seems to win is, “Aww.”

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      LOL @ girl_ninja. SM/derangers/BM/RR’s have some very interesting thinking skills.

      Meghan has been held to account for every godd@mn thing. Especially breathing, thinking, intelligence and being a WOC. Those are her actual crimes to them.

      Still have a hard time wrapping my head around a woman that claimed to raise, be raised with, close to (and all of SM’s other buffoonery), having lawyers take this case with all the evidence against their own client. How can SM try to say she was a big part/close to of Meghan’s life when, in Sam’s own book, she got Meghan’s birthday wrong, right? I know the birthdates of all my siblings. Big number. I remember the birthdate of my satan-sister-in-law. Sheesh, I remember the birthdate of a boy I kissed in 5th grade. Haven’t spoken to him in over 40 years-the date rolls around and I’m like, oh yeah, today is so and so’s bday. lol

      • aftershocks says:

        “Meghan has been held to account for every godd@mn thing. Especially breathing, thinking, intelligence and being a WOC. Those are her actual crimes to them.”

        ^^ Exactly, @AGreatReckoning! 🎯 I would add that the deranged see Meg’s greatest crimes as being so friggin’ badass, sweet, strong, kind; they hate her for falling in love with & marrying Prince Harry (who dearly loves her); for having a beautiful royal wedding ceremony; plus birthing their two children, all while being a WOC born of a caring, strong African American woman. 🤎 The deranged also enjoy projecting and making up complete nonsense about Meghan, someone they don’t know, but are not so secretly obsessed with, and apparently desire to be! 🤪

  2. SarahCS says:

    I think we all knew this was about generating headlines and the options for who was funding it are a pretty short list but I hadn’t realised quite how far from reality the claims were. She claimed things were said in the interview that weren’t actually said so were simple to disprove?

    It was always a desperate attempt to get some new content from Meghan but this is shockingly transparent.

    • Debbie says:

      I’m with you in being surprised at a lawsuit built on made up material. However, I have to ask myself, what kind of lawyer makes up quotes when there’s a transcript available, or a book’s manuscript available for comparison? I can easily see Scamantha wanting to sue Meghan for telling the truth about her own life when it doesn’t include Scamantha, but for a lawyer to build a lawsuit against Meghan out of a half-sister’s spite and anger is despicable.

  3. SIde Eye says:

    When it rains it pours! Love this for Duchess Meghan! Loving the news today!

    Good things happen in 3s! What’s next? Let’s go!!! 👠🍾🍀💗🍷

    • usavgjoe says:

      Now hopefully, with the group of British tabloids being sued royally by Harry, Elton and others… they won’t have enough money to bankroll another appeal for Scamantha, against the Duchess.

  4. Snuffles says:

    My only question is, will Samantha’s sponsors who clearly bankrolled this nuisance lawsuit, pay up if Samantha is ordered to pay Meghan’s legal fees? Or will they leave Scammy in the lurch?

    I hope they are petty and refuse and cause Scamantha to squeal like a stuck pig.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I expect the Fail to pick up her legal tab in exchange for an exclusive about how ‘unfair’ the decision was.

      • Josephine says:

        that’s a super expensive interview fee. i think even the DM might be done with this useless attention-seeker

        i also want to add that the selection of pictures above is spot-on!

      • notasugarhere says:

        Given how much they’ll make off the supportive derangers being on the Fail 24 hours a day posting in support of Scammy? The Fail has made a boatload off the disgusting branch of Markles.

        There’s a reason why Meghan asked originally for her lawsuit against the Fail to include every penny they made off every post related to their invasion of her copyright.

    • ML says:

      Congratulations to Meghan! This was brilliant news after reading about Trump.
      Snuffles, it would be poetic justice if Scammy had to pay. I would love that for her.

  5. Osty says:

    No sane person believed that ridiculous lawsuit would go anywhere. Anyways her sponsors should sue her for wasting their money . Meghan continues to win while the idiots are losing left , right and centre

    • Snuffles says:

      Her sponsors no doubt put her up to it so they could mine potential depositions for new Sussex stories. They’ve been denied access for 3 years and they are beyond desperate.

  6. equality says:

    She based her lawsuit on lies about what Meghan actually said. To me this sounds like a nuisance suit and she should have had to pay court costs. If people who bring this type of lawsuit had to pay both sets of attorneys and the cost for court time and personnel, there would be far fewer of them.

    • ThatsNotOkay says:

      Agreed. And the lies were based on what the British Media printed, so I wonder if either the BM egged her on, or if she is severely mentally impaired and only hears what she wants to hear and can’t be talked out of it. You know, like Trump.

      • Surly Gale says:

        @ThatsNotOkay ~ It’s kind of not okay to say their lack of morals and judgments are a result of mental impairment. I’m not convinced Trump/Scammy and their ilk are mentally impaired at all.
        T is sly, corrupt, greedy, immoral, etc. S is weak, greedy, corrupt, immoral, etc.
        I do not consider these traits to be part of mental impairment.
        Now, are they morally impaired? Indeed. Devoid of any positive or empathetic human/humane traits. Indeed yes.
        We need to stop conflating the immoral and unethical with mental health, IMO.
        They are two very different lanes, as I understand the definitions.

      • ThatsNotOkay says:

        @Surly Gale I think both Trump and Scam have mental health issues. Is narcissism a mental health disorder? Absolutely. I do think that’s part of their problems. Not to excuse the other things they do. Maybe “impairment” was the wrong word? If so, I was wrong. But I think there are mental issues at play that go beyond “greed, immorality, corruption.” Like, Lindsey Graham is all those things. Mitch McConnell too. Putin. Netanyahu. I don’t see them as having the same mental issues as Trump and Scam. I could be wrong and I did not mean to stigmatize mental health issues, but rather, in effect, highlight and distinguish some.

      • Jaded says:

        It’s clear Samantha suffers from out-of-control NPD. I’ve had to deal with NPD in my family, with a couple of people I thought were friends until they turned on me, and with Mr. Jaded’s ex-wife who is BPD with co-existing NPD. Believe me, these people are mentally ill, only the problem is they don’t think they are. They firmly believe their fantasies, and they will throw anybody under the bus to gain attention, money and status. Revenge drives them and they will go scorched earth on you to get it. I hope the Fail or whatever tabloid geniuses are funding her finally give up, that her blatant attempts to squeeze money out of the Sussexes just isn’t working and that she’s nothing but a loss leader. She’s run out of options to continue her grift.

  7. Amy Bee says:

    I still believe that the British press was bankrolling this lawsuit. As for the depositions, that would have only happened if the judge had ruled in Scammy’s favour but the way the British press reported it, Harry and Meghan were going to do depositions no matter what. I’m glad Scammy lost and if she knows what’s good for her she would give up and leave Meghan alone.

    • SarahCS says:

      At this point she’ll act for whoever is paying her. I doubt we’ve heard the last from her.

      • Amy Bee says:

        We all hope we don’t hear from her again. But she might want to sue Ashleigh next.

      • Brassy Rebel says:

        And Scobie better watch out.

      • Mel says:

        I don’t think she’s going after Ashleigh or Scobie, they’re not Meghan. Her goal is to drag Meghan down . To force Meghan to engage with her and embarrass her. She’s not going after anyone else.

      • Shawna says:

        If she goes after Ashleigh, I assume Meghan will be even more angry and more aggressive in getting it thrown out than she was on her own behalf.

  8. Cel2495 says:

    😂 …I hope she can now wheel herself back into hiding and stop harassing her sister. It was never going to stand…it was simply ridiculous

  9. Tessa says:

    The tabs of course play this down.

  10. Louise177 says:

    I wonder if anyone will report what the ruling said. The judge basically made stuff up about what Meghan said. Probably not since the British media has been on Samantha’s side and not reporting the whole truth.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      ???????????? What did the judge make up? I read the court stuff. Didn’t see anything nefarious. What did I miss? From what I read, the judge was ruling by law. Please explain.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      If you’re reading the BM’s reportage, I see the problem. The actual stuff is pretty straightforward. No bias. Newsweek reported stuff wrong. lol as per usual.

  11. Becks1 says:

    I’m not surprised it was dismissed since its based on things that either were never said, were Meghan’s own opinions and experiences, or were things someone else said (Scobie.)

    As for who was funding it – i’m assuming the british press, one of the tabloids.

  12. Ginger says:

    I still can’t believe that Samantha tried to sue Meghan for defamation when she has been defaming Meghan for years. She even wrote a whole book slamming her. Meghan could EASILY win a defamation lawsuit against that vile creature but I’m sure she doesn’t want to give her the attention she desperately craves.

    • kelleybelle says:

      That’s exactly it. Meghan does as little as possible to acknowledge that slag’s existence. Scam has been at this for going on seven years now. Enough already. The lies this grifter has told about Meghan number in the hundreds. The “fake pregnancy” and “narcissistic social climber” are all courtesy of Wheels. She is a malignant growth and would be dangerous if she were mobile.

    • Kingston says:

      Scamantha the Slag slammed into the classic case of: “s/he who seeks justice must come with clean hands.”

      There was no way she was gonna win anything, nor get a deposition (which, lets face it, is what she and her sponsors, i:e foul-mouthed, snaggle-tooth britshidt tabloid rage-monsters really wanted.) Even her lawyer literally admitted as much at the last hearing. Her lawyer literally said he knew that on its surface scamantha’S case wasnt much, but he knew they wd get the info they (i:e he and the shidtmedia) wanted from a deposition!

      Blatant. Brazen. Bald-faced.

  13. K8erade says:

    It’s wishful thinking on my part but I hope the Markle trash take the hint, keep quiet, and realize they’re getting conned by the British media.

    • equality says:

      Has bad dad learned or am I just not seeing his propaganda?

      • K8erade says:

        Toxic Tom hasn’t been heard from for quite some time. He’s still recovering from his “stroke.” Since I’m 90% certain he faked the stroke, I just hope that’s his way of getting himself away from the media.

      • kelleybelle says:

        The BM is afraid he’ll say too much and he’s said too much already. He outright admitted he was used to screw up his own daughter’s wedding. And his stroke was 100% BS. Just like the “heart attacks.” That’s why the “royals owe him.”

      • equality says:

        It would be hilarious if the royals are having to pay him now to shut up after paying him to talk. Maybe he will come out with the complete truth about who paid him around May 6.

      • HamsterJam says:

        @equality : What do you mean “who paid him around May 6”? Please spill the tea!

      • equality says:

        I meant he needs to spill during May this year while the Con is going on to upstage C&C.

  14. Nicky says:

    Surely someone who makes laws will put a stop to newspapers funding a case for no other reason than envy and mischief?

    Would there not be a paper trail as to how this woman could find money to bring this case? Did she pay tax on her ‘windfall’?

    They need to add funding from news orgs to harassment laws because this is in no way in the people’s interest.

  15. Virgil says:

    Lol it was a hopeless lawsuit, Samantha is a joker being bankrolled by enemies of H and M! Well done Meghan.

  16. Jan says:

    I maybe wrong, I don’t think the plaintiff can get their legal fees paid, because they’re the ones that filed the lawsuit.
    On the other hand if they lose the case and the defendant file at the beginning of to case to recover their lawyers fees, it’s bitch better have my money.
    Any bets on how the British media is reporting this.
    Let’s hope Scammy have her wheel chair when this is all over. Meghan want her lawyer fees, and her lawyers will dig under every rock for all of Scammy I’ll gotten gains.

    • Fifty-50 says:

      Plaintiffs can most def get their legal fees paid if they prevail in court; it’s SOP to request attorneys fees in the relief sought.

    • kirk says:

      I believe Daily Beast reporting on recovering lawyer’s fees is wrong. They said the judgement was against Samantha getting attorney’s fees; however, the Defendant (not the Plaintiff) was the party with the anti-Slapp motion. Since Plaintiff Samantha is being given 14 days to amend her complaint regarding Oprah interview, it’s premature for court to rule on Defendant Meghan getting attorney’s fees.

  17. Jais says:

    Yay for Meghan!

  18. Nanea says:

    While it was good to see that Scammy’s lawsuit was thrown out, she’s already back to stirring the pot on Twitter.

    She posted “Opera is not over kids”, so it seems her financiers’ coffers aren’t empty yet, they’re still willing to p(l)ay — and she’ll go on another headline-grabbing mission soon.

    Too bad that shows like GMB that had her on constantly and played a huge part in embiggening Scammy, couldn’t be bothered to report on her loss.

    Proving again what’s wrong in “journalism” in the UK and beyond.

    • Tessa says:

      Piers must be incandescent I wonder if he’ll rant on tv.

    • TheWigletOfWails says:

      She can stir the pot all she wants, but she’s exposed herself and her grift. Everyone knows she’s a racist loser, jealous of her sister’s “good fortune”. People can relate to that and it’ll get Meghan more support.

    • Mary says:

      @nanea, she said what?! “’Opera is not over kids’”. What a bizarre thing to say! Is she calling herself “the fat lady”?!

  19. Tessa says:

    Sam even traveled to the UK and waited at the sussex home outside of it. She was bankrolled apparently to pay for this trip. What she did was stalk Meghan and harry . Harry and Meghan ignored her. I hope she gets a clue and stays away from media. Daddy tom so far has kept a low profile for months now.

    • kelleybelle says:

      Only because the BM are afraid he’ll say more than he already has, like admitting he was used to screw up the wedding. The heart attacks and stroke were all lies. They’re just using Wheels for now. I’m sure Jr. will show up sooner or later too. Ugh. #Meghanhasnosiblings.

  20. HeatherC says:

    She’s not gone. She honestly believes she’s the smartest person in the room. She’ll refile an amended complaint on the CBS interview, the only stick she has left. Hopefully that will fail quicker than the main suit, because from what I understand the judge wrote she was free to amend the complaint but that it more than likely would be dismissed for the same reasons as the other allegations were.

    This is the only thing she has in her sad, sad life. She’ll cling to this until she’s dead.

    • Tessa says:

      I agree. What was sickening to me was that the derange r s wanted to pay Sam’s legal fees. I also think tom will return.

      • TheWigletOfWails says:

        It’s funny how they claim to be fans of the BaRF and KKKate but they never donate to or support their charities, only the grifters who seek to “expose Meghan.”

    • Brassy Rebel says:

      Yeah, let’s hope the amended complaint is not assigned to a rogue right wing judge because then anything can happen.

      • Fifty-50 says:

        Amended complaint is brought before same judge. They’re not filing a new lawsuit when the complaint is amended, it’s all part of the same case.

  21. Brassy Rebel says:

    Yesterday was a banner day for the American judicial system. 🇺🇲🇺🇸

  22. Nicky says:

    Except it’s not journalism it’s mischief making.

    Until their fellow journalists I’ve them out or put a stop to this they’ll keep getting away with it.

    If someone ‘writes’ for these publications they should be ostracized by other news outlets from working for them in the future.

    If, by being employed in the gutter press becomes the kiss of death career-wise maybe these journalists would think about not harassing people in the future?

    • Jojo says:

      @NICKY THIS! A thousand times what you’ve said. As members of the UK public we can submit complaints to (compromised) regulatory bodies or to our (complicit) MP’s about the most vile examples of these bottom-feeding ‘journalists’. the Clarkson article being a prime example. However, that’s it.

      Other than choosing not to buy or click on the publication’s output there’s not a lot else we can do as individuals. The paper based part of the publications most involved already operate at a loss but they still get the online clicks because it’s practically the only choices for ‘news’ that we are proffered in the UK. I have to work quite hard to find unbiased & propaganda free reports on anything to do with H&M. Even the BBC output is unreliable and skewed when it comes to this topic.

      At the moment the Guardian is the best of the bunch & the most removed from ‘racist billionaire ownership syndrome’ or ‘pile lies/hate on M&H syndrome’. Because of this I choose to pay a monthly donation to them to encourage, in my own small way, some form of fairer, more independent reporting.

      However, as you say @NICKY, until real journalists, with integrity, call the gutter press out or put a stop to harassment style reporting by ostracising individuals from working with other news outlets they’ll just keep getting away with it.

      I’m really hoping that the court cases being undertaken by Harry & the others involved is the catalyst for real change & genuine accountability. We deserve better.

  23. LB says:

    The UK tabloids will likely keep paying her legal fees, pay for an amended claim or an appeal. They will keep bringing her out for commentary whenever possible. She is gold for them. She will never go away as a result.

    • lanne says:

      The Deranged One has shot her shot. She has no contact with Meghan, no new pictures, no more information on Meghan than I have. So unless she has something new to say, she’s old news.

  24. Harper says:

    I actually read the judge’s decision last night because I was so happy when I heard this news. I laughed when I read in the complaint that Plaintiff lived in a small town where she was well-known but after Meghan defamed her she was suddenly viewed as an opportunist trying to cash in on her sister’s fame. Honey, you were that before the wedding even happened. Meghan can’t ask for her fees back yet because Scammy can amend her complaint in one or two areas, but after that fails, Meghan should get her refund.

  25. Over it says:

    I wish scammy keeps crawling around way behind Meghan for scrap for the rest of her rodent life

    • Debbie says:

      That’s a good (and as accurate) an image as I’ve heard about this situation. Years ago, some British journalist wrote that Scamantha lived her life with her nose perpetually pressed against the windows of Meghan’s life. I thought that was good too.

  26. Vanessa says:

    Samantha is a woman who is so ridiculously jealous of Meghan that she can’t handle the fact that Meghan a black woman has everything she doesn’t. She can’t stand that Thomas favorite was Meghan growing up that Meghan got the love and attention from Thomas that Samantha never receive she using the courts and social media to get her Revenge . The British media is all to willing to help Samantha with her one sided obsession with Meghan it’s such a shame that their are lawyers who will continue to help this sick woman used the law to settle petty issues .

    • Gabby says:

      Scammy should direct that rage to her shitstain of a father. He created the resentment by not loving his children equally.

  27. Mary Pester says:

    Hey Sam, there is a rock on Mars with your name on it, bye, bye ms American lie,
    Message to the judge, please explain who is funding this slug, we know there are two options, ONE, The British Royal family, TWO the British press, so can we please follow the money!
    And message to Megan, restraining order on the witch please, you and Harry don’t need this sht from her

  28. one of the marys says:

    I have a suggestion for the tabloids who want to make bank with M&H articles. I suggest a complete 180 pivot to positive coverage because there’s lots of it. The good works, awards, clothes, swagger etc can manifest lots of articles from a variety of perspectives. Plus it will annoy the royals who may take things up a notch in the leaks and gossip and in their appearances and wardrobes. Just imagine if you pit the two factions against each other how much content you can generate. Do side by side ‘who wore it better’ or skin care regimes, speeches etc OMG content for days! And that’s what the tabloids want right, content??

    • Doppelgangers R'Us says:

      @ONE OF THE MARYS I love your idea.
      I believe it would be a win for the more reasonable of the media. Is there even such an animal? 🤷🏼‍♀️
      I have seen a FEW magazines here in the US starting to understand that Meghan IS a STYLE ICON that will sell clicks and are running nicer articles about her clothes and jewelry. I do click on those to encourage them.
      The idea of a who wore it better between Queen Meghan and KkHate makes me chortle!

    • Kingston says:

      The only problem with this is that those brits who are caught up in this hate for the half-black/half-white princess and who have turned on the formerly adored prince for loving her loudly and proudly, have congenital tall-poppy-syndrome and are incapable of getting off that particular hamster wheel.

      • one of the marys says:

        Kingston, I forgot about the racism. I was imagining pages and pages of content getting clicks and eyeballs.
        Ok so what about if you had an article about Meghan’s public speaking versus Kate’s. The haters and defenders would engage and the paper could be slyly supporting Meghan or slyly supporting Kate. I think they’ve got blinders on because there’s so much material there. Isn’t that what they want? Material, content, articles, money money money

  29. aquarius64 says:

    Bad Dad lost his own ridiculous lawsuit against the pap agency who worked with him for those staged pre wedding pictures; and was ordered to pay those legal fees. The Markles are broke and this lawsuit is their final chance to get any money out of Meghan. I heard Scammy amended her complaint but I can’t find it. I believe that will get tossed too with prejudice. The judge denied Meghan’s request for payment of legal fees by Scam because it was premature. The judge could grant it if this refile is found to be more nonsense. The biggest loser is the BM because it used Scam as source material for their stories and TV commentary for six plus years. It looks more ridiculous now. The tabloids maybe her sponsors but they may cut bait and make Scam pay for everything. Scam may threaten to expose them, but without proof it will be dismissed as another attention seeking ploy.

    • Robert Phillips says:

      If it can be proven that the tabloids paid for this, can Harry use it in his lawsuit? If it was ANL at least.

    • HamsterJam says:

      @aquarius64: Where did you read this? Do you have a link? “Bad Dad lost his own ridiculous lawsuit”

  30. Lady Digby says:

    Scammy like Trump clings to alternative “truths” in her nonsense claims eg she had a wonderful relationship with Meghan until she started dating Harry in 2016!! Truth is Meghan has never denied that her dad had other children but due to huge age gap and Scammy’s resentment they were never close and have only met twice at family occasions in 20 years.
    White Markles felt that they had hit the jackpot once M and H got engaged. Scammy intended to get photographs and insider gossip on M from dad but everything blew up the week before the wedding when MoS exposed his lies about staged pap pictures. Then with MoS private letter case Markles used that to keep on giving interviews but that case ended and Scammy needed a new court case to keep on spewing her delusions. Any fair person will see that you can’t force anyone to have a relationship with you regardless of shared DNA. Scammy own book lies bare the many fractured family relationships and she seems estranged from her mother and three children as well as M and others. She wants to continue exploiting their shared DNA to continue giving paid interviews to trash M. Why on earth platform hatred from a half sibling that as Meghan famously stated she barely knows? It is not news that she resents and is jealous of her successful half sister, is it? I remember Adele’s father and an absentee One Direction father after years of silence and no financial support during childhood giving paid interviews claiming credit for their child’s adult success as singers!!But why continue to platform these grifters?

    I hope SM handlers have deep pockets when the time comes to pay Duchess Meghan legal fees on this case. Folks, get your drums of popcorn ready, SM is going to start singing when her handlers cut her loose.

  32. QuiteContrary says:

    Scammy is just pathetic. Imagine being a journalist and thinking, yeah, that Scammy Markle will be an excellent source.

    No real journalist would.

    Scammy is refiling the Oprah part because her lawyer is saying they’re upset about how the media is portraying Meghan’s victory. He’s claiming some media is leaving out the refile. In short Sam has become a global laughingstock with this stupid lawsuit and she’s doing it to save face.

  34. Saucy&Sassy says:

    I can’t imagine an attorney amending the complaint if he is on a contingency fee. That means someone is paying his bill if he does file an amended complaint IMO. He has to know that the Oprah interview doesn’t have anything there that will help Scamantha with her case. I think the bm may want to lay low rather than cooking up something that makes even more people wonder where the money is coming from to pay an attorney.

  35. Well Wisher says:

    A total waste of the court’s time.

    Her sister has an evil heart and a demonsoul-trying to force yourself into someone’ life is just plain stuck on stupid-the judge has made very clear about amending her filing-I hope she prepared for her daughter’s statements about her in the documentary will really almost mesh with Meghan’s-she hillbilly ignorant.-she needs to worry about saving her soul before it is too late-and making amends with her children and grandkids-what Meghan does with her own soul and well-being is up to Meghan-People need to let someone heal mentally and stop causing drama when there is none-especially sense Meghan neither corresponds or mentions her in any public way-she looks very foolish and out of touch.
