End of speculation. For several months, stubborn rumors have claimed that Meghan Markle would be cold with her best friend, Jessica Mulroney. However, this Saturday, August 28, a source close to the former actress quoted by the British tabloid The Daily Mail revealed that the two women are far from going to war. “Meghan is in regular contact with Jessica,” said the informant. Only problem ? The distance between them.
Indeed, while the Duchess of Sussex continues her conversion far from the monarchy in Los Angeles, Jessica Mulroney, she resides in Canada. And more particularly in Toronto, where she first met Meghan Markle. Archie and Lilibet’s mother Diana was still the star of the Suits series at the time of the incident. A decade after their first exchange, Meghan Markle can still count on her friend, she who has been omnipresent in good times as in bad times. Jessica Mulroney also played a crucial role during the Sussex wedding in 2018.
Jessica Mulroney has been accused of racism
But what incident could have led the public to believe that they were in the cold? It all started in June 2020, when an African-American influencer by the name of Sasha Exeter encouraged her Twitter followers to take a stand for the Black Lives Matter movement, following the death of George Floyd. She then accused Jessica Mulroney – who allegedly did not respond to the call – of threatening to denigrate her. “Look, I’m not saying Jess is racist, but here’s what I’m going to say: she’s very aware of her wealth, her power and her privileges that stem from her skin color,” the young woman testified. A long scandal followed. Jessica Mulroney notably lost her show I Do, Redo, broadcast on the channel CTV. Meghan Markle, a great pro-Black Lives Matter activist, had preferred to remain silent during the controversy.
