Chrissy Teigen Is Officially in a Feud With Meghan Markle’s Family (Video)
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding was certainly the event of the year. But it’s over now, and the entire royal family has moved on to different things. Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, however, has not. And that’s something supermodel Chrissy Teigen simply cannot stand. The man who did not attend his daughter’s wedding has kept up a steady stream of press appearances since missing out on the big day. And over the weekend, Thomas gave a nine-hour interview to the Daily Mail, in which he shared that the royal family has completely cut off all communication with him.
"I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely,” he said. “I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the royal family changing Meghan, they cut me off. Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter."
And, you know what, that’s fine with Teigen, who tweeted out what we were all thinking this weekend: It’s time for Thomas to stop talking.
“This guy...this guy sucks. what is wrong with him? let your daughter be happy, please. this is embarrassing,” Teigen tweeted alongside screenshots of the interview.
Not convinced Teigen is right? Thomas claimed he “made” Meghan the woman she is today:
"I refuse to stay quiet,” he said. “What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority. She'd be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her. [...] She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her. And did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn't even speak to me now. How cold is that?"
Still not enough? How about the fact that he added Princess Diana’s name to his diatribe?
“They [the Royal Family] have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That’s not what Diana stood for,” he said. “Princess Diana is credited with changing the Royal Family, but she wasn’t perfect. She was still very much one of them.”
Meanwhile, Meghan's half-sister, Samantha Markle, came back at Teigen in her dad's defense, tweeting: "So this pudgy airhead @Christinetiegen Who knows nobody in the family is opening her pie hole? "This guy" is our father and deserves a lot of respect,.. you are the one who sucks."
We don't know if Teigen will bother to respond to Samantha's insults, but maybe it’s time we focus on Meghan and Harry’s happiness instead. Here’s a photo to get us all started:
