Meghan Markle’s brother Thomas says he ‘doesn’t 100% buy’ her claims of mental health battle in Big Brother interview

MEGHAN Markle’s brother has said he “doesn’t 100 per cent buy” her claims of battling with mental health problems.

Thomas Markle Jr told housemates on Australia’s Big Brother VIP he didn’t agree with the allegations made by the Duchess of Sussex in her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the premiere of Big Brother VIP in Australia, housemates gasped with shock at the 55-year-old’s outrageous claim about the Duchess.

Meghan told Oprah back in March that she "didn’t want to be alive anymore" and had suicidal thoughts but was not supported by the Royal Family as struggled with her mental health.

But speaking to his Big Brother housemates as he was interviewed by the show's presenters, Thomas took issue with his sister’s claim.

“I don’t 100 per cent buy that and I don’t agree with some of the things on the Oprah interview like not having those services available. I can’t imagine being that sheltered. “

As housemates began to bristle, he continued with his onslaught on Megan saying "she kind of knew what she was getting into".

Markle said "if you got a job and you got paid $4million salary a year to bow and curtesy and shake hands and take pictures and do some charity work here and some charity work it’s about the highest pedestal you can get to in life.

"So do your job and don’t gripe about it.”

Shocked housemate Jessika Power said "it's so much harder than that" and after the interview Brendan Curry exclaimed: "That was brutal!"

His comments have not landed well with his housemates with Jessika saying: “Sorry, didn’t like that.”

She went on to joke “raise your hands to see if Tom goes first eviction” before putting up her own hand. 

It’s not the first time Thomas, who shares the same father with Meghan, has publicly attacked his sister in scathing terms.

Back in August this year, he claimed he'd warned Harry that "very shallow" Meghan would "ruin" his life.


In he wrote public letter in 2018 in which he branded her up-coming marriage to Harry at “fake fairy tale” and it would be the "biggest mistake in royal wedding history".

He had also previously described her as a "phony", a bully, and a "jaded, shallow, conceited woman."

Despite Thomas’s latest outburst about his sister he nevertheless said he want to make up with her- which again prompted gasps from the housemates.

“Yes I’ll answer the phone if she picks up the phone,” he said.

“Everybody has always loved Meghan, everybody has always supported Meghan.

“I mean I may say bad things about her, I may write horrible letters about her but the end result is that I do love my sister.”

Earlier he branded the duchess "shallow" and said she will dump Harry, the same way she "walked all over" her first husband Trevor Engelson.
