Meghan Markle Isn’t Actually Friends With Jessica Mulroney Anymore, Source Claims
When Meghan, Duchess of Sussex‘s relationship with Prince Harry went public, she already had her very own robust life and close circle of friends. She had been good friends with tennis legend, Serena Williams, Suits actress, Sarah Rafferty, and stylist Jessica Mulroney for years. They all attended Meghan‘s wedding and remained her close friends and confidants amid her entrance into royal life.
As she as becomes one of the most popular women in the world, Meghan has also been introduced to other major celebs including Oprah Winfrey and former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. However, as her personal details have leaked to the press, she has had to take careful note of who her real friends are.
Now, Mulroney who had been Meghan’s best friends for years is in the middle of a white privilege firestorm during a time when the wold is confronting racism and anti-Blackness. Though Meghan is horrified by the ordeal, sources are saying she’s not even truly friends with Mulroney anymore.
This is how Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney met
Meghan was introduced to Mulroney, a Candian-stylist and socialite, almost 10 years ago when she moved to Toronto to begin filming the drama Suits. The women bonded immediately with Meghan falling in love with Mulroney’s children and the pair socializing and vacationing together.
Mulroney was the duchess’ unofficial wedding planner and she helped style Meghan during her first official royal tour in 2018. Mulroney even reportedly teamed up with Serena Williams to plan the duchess’ NYC baby shower.
However, in the past year, things have reportedly become strained between the women.
Inside Jessica Mulroney’s white privilege scandal
As Meghan and Prince Harry have expressed their passions for the Black Lives Matter movement, Mulroney has found herself in the middle of a messy “Karen” scandal. Sasha Exeter, a Black entrepreneur, blogger, and brand marketer used her Instagram platform for a generic call to action. Without naming names, she called out her white peers who had been silent amid the global unrest over police killings of Black people and racial injustice.
It apparently struck a nerve with Mulroney and she began threatening Exeter’s livelihood. “What happened next was a series of very problematic behavior and antics that ultimately resulted in [Mulroney] sending me a threat in writing last Wednesday,” Exeter said in a video. She posted the evidence of Mulroney threatening her livelihood and a lawsuit.
Since then, Mulroney’s CTV series, I Do Redo, has been canceled and she’s been fired from Good Morning America. She has publically apologized saying that she will be stepping away from her public life for some time.
Meghan Markle isn’t friends with Jessica Mulroney anymore
Meghan is reportedly mortified by Mulroney especially since she’s been on the outs with her for some time. The duchess allegedly felt the stylist was “benefiting” from her royal status.
“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?” a source told Page Six. “The row has really given Meghan the excuse she was waiting for to cut Jess off for good.”
It didn’t help that Mulroney used the infamous “I have a Black friend” line in her apology. “As I told you privately, I have lived a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where race was front and center,” she said. “It was deeply educational.”
