Meghan Markle, 38, has officially ended her friendship with shoe company heiress Jessica Mulroney, 40.
Even though there were reports that their friendship ended because Mulroney “threatened” a black Canadian influencer, more on that here; a source is now revealing the straw that really broke the camel’s back in the friendship. As part of her public apology to the influencer named Sasha Exeter, Mulroney brought up her friendship with Meghan Markle who is half-black – writing on Instagram: “As I told you privately, I have lived a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where race was front and centre. It was deeply educational. I learned a lot from that. I promise to continue to learn and listen on how I can use my privilege to elevate and support black voices.”
This statement reportedly INFURIATED Meghan who considered the mention in this so-called ‘apology’ extremely distasteful and a signal to end her and Mulroney’s friendship. A source reveals: “Meghan could not get over that Jessica brought up her relationship with Meghan when she commented about her ‘closest friend’ in the discourse with Sasha. That was hugely offensive to Meghan and the deciding factor for her. Meghan considers the relationship to be done. Of course Meghan is supportive of Jessica, as she is with all of her friends, but it’s a bit off-putting when Jessica seemingly uses their friendship for headlines. Meghan is very aware when people in her life do this… Especially now that Meghan is in L.A. and it’s a sensitive time, Meghan is being very cautious with her affiliations.”
