The Duchess of Sussex and mother of one, Meghan Markel has cut ties with her with long time friend, Jessica Mulroney following her race row with an influencer.
Meghan Markle, 38, who first met Jessica Mulroney, 40, during her time on legal drama Suits in Toronto, before the stylist went on to attend her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018, has reportedly ended their friendship ‘for good’.
An insider told Page Six that their relationship was ‘already on the out’, as Jessica was ‘making a career out of the friendship’.
Last week influencer Sasha Exeter shared a series of unpleasant messages in which Jessica Mulroney allegedly threatened to sue her, which led to her being fired from her presenting role with CTV.
Speaking to Page Six, the source said: The white privilege ‘row has really given Meghan the excuse she was waiting for to cut Jess off for good.
‘I don’t know what the tipping point was, but Jess has been on the outs for some time.
‘Their friendship is definitely not what it was. And really, how can you have such a close friendship when one person is basically making a career out of the friendship?’.
Representatives for Jessica Mulroney and Meghan Markle have been contacted for comment.
This comes after Jessica had her reality TV show cancelled and was fired as a bridal marketing specialist after ‘threatening’ a black social media influencer in a row over white privilege.
Mulroney admitted last week that ‘I was wrong’ after clashing with lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter in the wake of the George Floyd protests.
Exeter says Mulroney ‘took offense’ to a ‘generic call to action’ that she posted on her Instagram story weeks ago and that the pair then started arguing.
It’s unclear if the entire dispute happened over Instagram and what specifically was said but, eventually, it resulted in Mulroney allegedly threatening Exeter that she would contact companies she had worked with.
Mulroney apologized publicly on one of Exeter’s Instagram post after the went public with their dispute but Exeter claims she then sent her another private message which read: ‘Liable suit. Good luck.’ (sic)
