Thomas Markle can’t stop talking to the media, and his latest complaint about his daughter, Meghan Markle, is that she isn’t giving him any money. Thomas is growing “increasingly bitter” towards Meghan and his other kids because no one has given him a “f***ing dime.”
According to The Mirror, an insider says that when Thomas was working as a lighting director in Hollywood and earning six-figures, he generously supported all of his children. He used his salary plus $750,000 from a 1990 California State Lottery win to pay for Meghan’s private education. However, he was always clear that he expected to one day be paid back.
So when Thomas Markle said last week “this is the last story I’ll sell, I mean tell” what he meant was until the next offer comes alongs? Why can’t he just leave his daughter alone? I’m angry, I can’t imagine how Meghan must feel. KD https://t.co/OtsYzw4J9Q

In 2016, Thomas declared bankruptcy with over $30,000 in credit card debt. He now lives in a rental home in Mexico near the US border.
He also expected Meghan to take care of him during his golden years.
“I took care of my mother for the last five years of her life,” said Thomas. “My daughter said she’d take care of me in my declining years. I’m not talking money, I’m talking about taking care of me. That’s important to me.”
When Meghan starred on Suits, she reportedly earned $37,000 an episode. And now that she has married into the royal family, she is living a lavish life. But, she is not including her father.
However, Meghan and the Royal family have welcomed her mother, Doria Ragland, into the fold, and she could be moving to London soon to be closer to her daughter. That reportedly makes things worse in Thomas’ eyes.
The father-daughter relationship between Thomas and Meghan started to crumble when he got involved just weeks before her May 19th wedding in a staged photo paparazzi scandal. Then, Thomas was not able to walk Meghan down the aisle at her wedding due to a heart attack, and her father-in-law Prince Charles stepped in to accompany her.
Since the wedding, Thomas has been on his own personal press tour, and has said that he hasn’t spoken to his daughter since the day after the wedding and claimed that Princess Diana “would have loathed” how she is treating him. Thomas has also said that he lied to Prince Harry about his involvement in the paparazzi scandal and also hung up on him.

In more than one interview, Thomas has also said that the Duke and Duchess would be better off if he died so they could “pretend to be sad.”
Thomas continues to claim that all he wants is to restore his relationship with Meghan, and if that means Christmas and birthday cards, plus getting together for the holidays, he would be happy with that.
However, after all of the things he has said to the media, it isn’t clear how Thomas will be able to fix his relationship with Meghan Markle or Prince Harry. But, as one insider says, “No one wants to see this continue.”
