Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha Markle is demanding payment from media outlets in order to spill the tea on her royal sister, and she’s brazen enough to put her stipulations in writing.
The Blast obtained a copy of an email exchange between Samantha and The Domenick Nati Show from earlier today where Samantha asks for over a thousand dollars for an interview with the show. In the email, Markle explains that her “minimum is much higher” but is willing to settle for $1500.
Markle’s other caveat before agreeing to the interview was to ensure she was not being “set up by a shock jock who wants to be rude” and warned that she used to work in radio so her snappy comebacks could “embarrass the host.”
Sources at The Domenick Nati Show tell The Blast that they had reached out to Markle via social media in May to talk about the newly minted Duchess of Sussex but just heard back this week.
Since Prince Harry and Meghan’s relationship got more serious this year, Samantha has sat down with shows like “Good Morning Britain” and is penning a tell-all autobiography formerly called “The Diary Of Princess Pushy.”
As we previously reported, Meghan’s sister and her father, Thomas Markle, have had financial issues and were reportedly selling stories and access to the media. This email, clearly showing that Samantha is looking for pay to play opportunities, is further calling into question the veracity of everything the Markle family has ever said about the Duchess. Reports also surfaced today that Thomas may have faked the heart attack that kept him from attending the Royal Wedding.
The show refused to pay Markle her fee.
Kensington Palace declined to comment.
