Thomas Markle is Trying to Sue for Visitation With His Grandkids (I Wish This Was a Joke)
Imagine having a rocky relationship with the paternal side of your family. Then imagine being catapulted into mega fame practically overnight and the paternal side of your family see it as a payday. Not only do they see it as a payday, but it’s a payday at your expense since they’re going to vilify you.
When Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha, traveled to the UK to harass her younger sister, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. In addition to that, I couldn’t believe that there were people on Samantha’s side as the shenanigans played out.
The UK press ate it up, of course, since they’d detested Meghan since day one. If anyone had a negative story about Meghan they were on it, and it didn’t matter if the story had been twisted in order to make Meghan appear to be a horrible person. Millions of people also ate up those negative stories since they just hate Meghan so unbelievably much.
What got me about Samantha Markle — who is seventeen years older than Meghan — is the way she continuously spins this tale of Meghan hurting her feelings so much and making the same bullying claim that everyone makes about Meghan that never has any validity or proof. All the while Meghan can only say that she didn’t grow up with Samantha and she’s not close to her. What else is there for Meghan to say other than that?
This isn’t about liking Meghan, but having common sense.
Samantha is nearly two decades older than Meghan, they have different mothers, presumably never lived under the same roof at any point in their lives, and the person that links Meghan to Samantha was divorced from Meghan’s mother many years before. I realize that some half-siblings do manage to build some kind of bond in that type of situation, but I think that’s rare. Very rare.
Apparently since she has some old photos she took with Meghan (I’ve only seen two of them), this is supposed to be “proof” that they were in her life.
Dude. I’ve taken pictures with people in the past that I’m related to and I don’t recall saying more than one sentence to them my entire life. I also have a half-brother that I’ve only spoken to once — maybe twice. I can’t remember. There aren’t any hard feelings between us at all; we’re just not close. We have different mothers and he’s at least ten years older than me. Many siblings and half-siblings aren’t close, but the British press makes it out as if it’s a crime to exclude a half-sibling that you barely know from a special event in your life.
Which brings us to Thomas Markle.
As if Samantha wasn’t being an obscene, irrational whirlwind of half-truths and outright lies as well as accusations, Meghan’s dad joined in on the fun!
During the time when it was initially playing out, I couldn’t believe how people didn’t see Thomas and Samantha as toxic pieces of garbage. They were obviously two people that no sane person would want or choose to be around, and somehow Meghan ended up being a bad person because she clearly wanted nothing to do with them.
Now, let’s jump to 2021 after Thomas Markle has basically pimped out his personal relationship with his daughter, Meghan, on a number of occasions. He’s aided the press in making his daughter come across as a bad person, yet…he’s now trying to sue her…to FORCE her to allow him to see her children.
When I read that, I think my mouth actually fell open.
That mf seriously has some balls. And those balls don’t have all their marbles.
I was wondering what kind of lawyer would take on a case like this. Then I wondered in what topsy turvy world would a judge actually grant Thomas any rights to do this.
I don’t think he has any legal ground to stand on, but I could be wrong. After all, I’m not a lawyer. The only way (I think) a case like this would have any merit would be if the child(ren) had lost both parents and another family member had custody of the kid(s) and they wouldn’t allow Thomas to see them. Even then, I don’t think he could force it since I think he may need some type of proof that they were being mistreated or something — but that would be something else entirely.
I just think what he’s doing is ludicrous. This isn’t going to repair any parts of his relationship with Meghan, if that’s what he’s thinking. If anything, this will probably make thinks a million times worse. Another thing is that I think Thomas’s case is made even more meritless if the kids would have any contact with Samantha, who is clearly unstable. Thomas and Samantha both come across as unstable and manipulative. I actually think Meghan should’ve taken out a restraining order them ages ago. Then again, maybe she has and I missed it.
Either way, I honestly can’t imagine having one of my parents gunning for me relentlessly like that. He’s been doing this for years now, since 2018 I believe, and he still hasn’t learned that to many of us, he looks like one of the worst fathers anyone could ever have.
