Meghan Markle’s ex has said that the British tabloid offered him $70K to lie about his and Meghan’s sex life.
Simon Rex dated Meghan Markle in 2004 when she was 22 and when the British media found out, they offered allegedly him money to exaggerate their relationship to paint Meghan in a bad light. .
The one time MTV veejay made this revelation on this week’s Hollywood Raw podcast.
At the time they dated, Meghan was an upcoming actress with day parts in soap operas while Simon’s career was going well. He was acting in the Scary Movie franchise and was on the verge of starting his time as rapper Dirt Nasty.
However, at the start of his career in Hollywood, he did some solo porn scenes, mostly aimed at gay audiences, Perez Hilton reports. Simon said it was this early part of his career that the tabloids were interested in tagging Meghan Markle to, so as to make her look unfit to join the Royal family.
No wonder Meghan Markle decided to sue! Oh and little reminder, real news outlets do not pay for information, specifically to avoid incentive to lie. (And that goes for celeb news bloggers, too!)
That’s not fair to Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry?
