40-year-old Meghan Markle Duchess of Sussex is speaking out after being accused of lying about being an only child!
Markle’s half-sister filed a defamation lawsuit after Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah where she (Meghan) claimed to be an “only child.” In her lawsuit, Samantha sought $75000 in damages in conjunction with claims made in the biography about Meghan titled ‘Finding Freedom’ which states that she and Meghan didn’t have the same father Thomas Markle.
Now, Meghan’s team has a response, stating: “Plaintiff [Samantha] first asserts that she can disprove that Meghan ‘grew up as an only child.’ But this perception is inherently unfalsifiable. It is hard to imagine a more personal and subjective feeling than how one views their own childhood. Moreover, Plaintiff’s opposition completely ignores the context of the statement, where Ms. Winfrey asked Meghan about her ‘relationship’ with Plaintiff (to whom Ms Winfrey referred as her ‘half-sister on her father’s side’). Meghan’s response to that question that she ‘grew up as an only child’ was obviously not meant to be a statement of objective fact that she had no genetic siblings or half-siblings. Rather, it was a textbook example of a subjective statement about how a person feels about her childhood.”
