Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to separate themselves and son Archie from the Royal Family was not a hasty decision that was made one midnight. Instead, it was a pot brewing since the time Harry and Meghan got engaged, owing to the British Press' coverage on them. Meghan became an easy target for the press as innumerable negative stories popped up on the Suits star. Eventually, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had had enough and took the drastic decision.

Simon Rex, an American actor, who worked with Meghan on Cuts, a TV Show in 2005, revealed the extent the press went to, in order to defame Meghan. The actor shared on the Hollywood Raw Podcast (via Just Jared) that several British tabloids had contacted him, offering up to USD 70,000 to lie about his relationship with Markle. Simon revealed that he never actually dated Meghan but they did hang out often and even went on a lunch date together. "Nothing happened. We never even kissed. We hung out once in a very non-datey way," the 45-year-old actor shared honestly.

"When that story broke, a couple British tabloids offered to pay me a lot of money to say a lie that we actually hooked up. I said no to a lot of money because I didn’t feel right lying and f*****g up the royal f******g family," Rex added.

This is indeed a shocking revelation!

With all that digging & paying people to lie since 3.5 years, none of the British tabloid who are on a mission to destroy Meghan and her marriage, have succeeded to find 1 scandal or unlawful act. They have nothing on her. And that makes them angrier, so they continue the daily character assassination. All the Markles are being paid to serve that British media/tabloid agenda; dad and half siblings paid to lie over and over again.

They need to take all these rags to court...I’m serious..racist press..

Megan and Harry made the best decision to leave the UK. The British tabloid is worse then a virus

So, he did not lie because of his concern for the "royal family"!! How about standing up for her? The extent the british tabloids have gone after Meghan, is beyond racial hatred. This is some next level predatory vendetta against destroying her life, character, and reputation. Toxic! I am happy for her and for harry to stand up for her.

The British tabloids went after Kate for a whole decade. They were even more cruel to Camilla Parker-Bowles accusing her of breaking Diana's marriage. They are doing what tabloids do. Megan is not the first nor last.
