Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has been sued by her half-sister, Samantha Markle over her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

This is coming barely a year after Meghan spoke out about her life in a popular interview with Oprah.

According to Samantha, who is suing Meghan for defamation, the ‘rags to royalty’ narrative that the duchess presented about herself was simply false.

In the court document obtained by TMZ, Samantha claimed that Meghan spread lies in order to belittle their family members.

Samantha pointed out that Meghan told Oprah that she (Meghan) was an only child, whereas they both share the same father, Thomas Markle.

According to Samantha, Meghan also lied when she told Oprah that she last saw her (Samantha) “at least 18, 19 years ago and before that, 10 years before that.”

She further claimed that Meghan was wrong when she told Oprah that she (Samantha) only changed her surname to Markle after Meghan started dating Harry.

Speaking to TMZ about the suit, Meghan’s attorney, Michael Kump, said, “This baseless and absurd lawsuit is just a continuation of a pattern of disturbing behavior. We will give it the minimum attention necessary, which is all it deserves.”
