Any time one of Meghan Markle‘s siblings are mentioned, it’s hard not to enter full, eyeroll mode. Meghan’s half-brother, Tom, blames her for all the unwanted attention he’s been getting, that apparently cost him his job and his home. And her half-sister, Samantha Grant, is readying a tell-all called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, trading in their supposed close relationship for money and 15 minutes. Well, in an interesting turn of events, another family member (how many are there??) has stepped up to refute some of Samantha’s claims.
“I believe she resented Meghan because she had the life Samantha always wanted and she was jealous,” Samantha’s ex-husband, Scott Rasmussen, told the Daily Mirror of the older Markle sibling. “Harry and Meghan need to know the truth about her. She’s the last person who should be at Windsor Castle.”
If Sam was still hanging on to the tiniest shred of hope on getting an invitation to the royal wedding, that dream was just dashed.
And Rasmussen wasn’t finished. He called Samantha “the pushy one,” adding, “if she sets foot in the UK they should send her straight to the Tower of London.”
Rasmussen, an ex-marine and firearms expert who works in the film industry, says the narrative Samantha has been spinning regarding how she helped give Meghan a “magical” and “fun” childhood has sickened him.
“Samantha making out they were close is bulls*it,” said Scott, who recalled the first time he met Meghan, when she was a teenager. “She was all class and so polite, everything Samantha wanted to be.”
And as Meghan’s acting career blossomed, Samantha’s didn’t, something that made her very “bitter.” As for all the interviews his ex has been giving, Scott said, “She should act with some dignity, keep her mouth shut, and leave everybody else alone.”
Rasmussen is just confirming what we’ve long suspected, but it’s still nice to hear. Here’s hoping Meghan isn’t so polite that she decides to be the bigger person and extend wedding invites to her siblings. Scott, on the other hand, sounds like he’d be a blast at the reception. Just saying.
