Former Suits star Meghan Markle will soon tie the knot with Prince Harry in what's sure to be the happiest day of her life. But it's been a long, messy road for the hot American divorcee actress, 36, as her dirty laundry has come spilling out before the May 19 royal wedding. Click through RadarOnline.com's gallery for more on Markle's secrets and scandals!
A sleazy website that claims it is linked to ISIS recently uploaded a video allegedly showing future princess Markle topless! The site has published an 11-second clip that shows the ex-Suits actress showing off her bare boobs on vacation and there are also topless Markle still photos. While Kensington Palace has said the images are “fake,” a source insisted to Radar, “This video of Meghan and the other pictures of her are totally genuine.”
Many have raised eyebrows over Markle's romantic past, including her broken marriage. The star divorced producer Trevor Engelson in 2013 after just two years of marriage.
A book by Princess Diana’s biographer, Andrew Morton, revealed that Markle ended her first marriage abruptly, and left her husband Engelson confused and heartbroken. According to Meghan, A Hollywood Princess, Prince Harry’s now-fiancée began dating producer Engelson after they flirted at a dive bar. At the time, Markle was a wannabe actress working as one of the sexy "briefcase girls" on the game show, Deal Or No Deal. Once Markle got her starring role on Suits, "Trevor went from cherishing Meghan to ‘feeling like he was a piece of something stuck to the bottom of her shoe,'" a source told Morton for his explosive book.
Markle has been embroiled in a bitter feud with her half-sister Samantha Grant. While Markle dated Harry, 33, Samantha confirmed the rumors of their estrangement and slammed famous sister on social media. Samantha claimed Meghan was a fame-seeking actress who completely abandoned her after she became ill. According to Samantha, Markle is a "shallow social-climber."
The ex-Suits star is bringing quite a bit of unseemly family baggage to her marriage! Her deadbeat brother, Thomas Markle Jr. has been involved in shocking domestic troubles. He allegedly drunkenly held a gun to his girlfriend's head, as Radar reported last year. Then this New Year's Eve, the same woman, Darlene Blount, who is engaged to Thomas Jr., was arrested for allegedly assaulting HIM.
Meghan's former friend Ninaki Priddy has dissed her, claiming Markle was "very calculated" in the way she handled people and always wanted to be famous. Before she ever met Prince Harry, Priddy said she saw that Markle had a book about his mother, Princess Diana, on her home bookshelf, and had fascination for England. The ex-chum confided that Markle also had a fondness for The Princess Diaries films about a commoner who becomes part of a royal family!
The actress got into show business after her father, Thomas Markle Sr., worked as a lighting director on the TV show Married with Children. Thomas Sr. and Markle's mom, Doria Radlan, a social worker and yoga teacher, divorced. Although he will walk Markle down the aisle, his reclusive ways are shocking to royal watchers. Thomas Sr., who reportedly weighs 300 pounds, lives as a recluse in the tiny Mexican beach town of Rosarita and dresses shabbily.
In a Radar exclusive, Markle's brother’s former fiancée revealed he drove her to drugs and she slept with a gun under her pillow because she was so terrified he might kill her after their bitter break up. Erin Specht dated Thomas Markle Jr. for 16 years and loved his sister Meghan, but revealed the dark side of the Markle family, branding her breakup with Tom as a “nightmare” that found her spiraling into drug use that included meth, heroin, cocaine and alcohol.
The secrets of Markle's previous relationships have all leaked out to the press ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry. Before Markle became a royal girlfriend, she dated Canadian celebrity chef Corey Vitiello from 2014 to 2016. Sources have claimed that the star used to embarrass Vitiello by bragging to his friends that she was a successful actress on. She also reportedly falsely claimed she had dreamed up a new pasta dish by herself.
A blog can come back to haunt you! Markle was revealed as the author of a racy anonymous Hollywood diary that ran online from 2010 to 2012. Writing under the alias "The Working Actress," Markle confided the indignities of being in show biz, including dealing with "tough directors" and "bitchy" acting rivals. In another uncomfortable situation for her stuffy royal in-laws-to-be, Markle has been exposed as revealing she was "treated like s**t on a set" and had to "kiss actors with smelly breath."
