Meghan Markle Fights Tabloid Rumors in British Press Lawsuit

Meghan Markle is shutting down rumors in new court documents from her ongoing British press lawsuit.

In the lawsuit, the 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex’s legal team accuses Associated Newspapers of printing “untrue” stories in an attempt to portray her “negatively.”

This includes rumors about her newly renovated home in Windsor, which was rumored to have a $6,500 copper bathtub, $650,000 of aircraft soundproofing, a yoga studio, a tennis court and guest wing.

According to People, the legal documents dispute the claims printed by the publication maintaining that those items don’t “exist and is completely untrue.”

The documents also condemn the publication for printing a private letter from Meghan to her father without her consent and editing it to portray a “deliberately inaccurate picture of her relationship with her father.”

“The omitted or suppressed parts of the letter amount to almost half of the actual contents. The omitted parts demonstrate the claimant’s care for her father and others, as well as her concern about the UK tabloid media exploiting her father,” the court paper, submitted by Schillings solicitors, reads.

The lawsuit also shuts down the “untrue and offensive” rumor that Meghan did not invite her mother to her baby shower and explains she was unable to attend due to work commitments.

Meghan‘s husband Prince Harry is also pursuing legal cases against News UK and MGN regarding alleged illegal interception of voicemail messages.
