Simon Rex Was Offered $70,000 to Lie About Meghan Markle & Their Relationship

Simon Rex says that several British tabloids contacted him and offered him large sums of money to lie about his relationship with Meghan Markle.

The 45-year-old actor says that he never actually dated Meghan, but they “hung out” and went on one lunch date.

“Nothing happened. We never even kissed. We hung out once in a very non-datey way,” Simon said on the Hollywood Raw podcast. “She was just someone I had met on a TV show and we got lunch. That was the extent of it.”

“When that story broke, a couple British tabloids offered to pay me a lot of money to say a lie that we actually hooked up. I said no to a lot of money because I didn’t feel right lying and f–king up the royal f–king family,” he said.

Simon is best known for his role in the Scary Movie franchise and parts on shows like Jack & Jill and What I Like About You. He and Meghan both appeared on a TV show called Cuts in 2005.
