Earlier this month, Thomas Merkel suffered a stroke and was briefly hospitalized.
Among those who wished her a speedy recovery were some skeptical spirits who accused Meghan’s father of forging her latest coronary event.
It may sound sensible, but the man doesn’t have the greatest history of telling the truth.
In fact, Thomas allegedly faked a heart attack to get out of attending a royal wedding in 2018.
So the idea that he might use a little deceptive ticker hassle to manipulate the media is not so foreign.
Just as he avoided his daughter’s marriage, the timing of Thomas’ latest medical emergency is impeccable.
Samantha Merkel is currently suing Meghan, and the long-shot lawsuit seems less about getting into Meghan’s pocket (although we’re sure Scammy Sammy is hoping for a juicy settlement) and much more about maintaining relevance.
Samantha, you probably know, is a wicked half-sister who made a career out of hitting her only skilled sibling.
Someone should inform him that there is a healthy method of cottle-riding.
However, Samantha is blaming Meghan for their father’s recent heart problem, because of course she is.
“None of us have heard from Meghan – it’s neglect,” Samantha said during a recent appearance on the British talk show. Dan Uton tonight.
“If he doesn’t find it in his heart, or has a moral conscience to move forward, be ashamed of it,” he added, noting that Thomas has “not much time” left.
Apparently, those comments weren’t sharp enough, as Samantha has now doubled her trash-talk.
In a new interview with TMZ, she shouted that Meghan would “stay away from the funeral and not use it as a photo opportunity” if Thomas dies soon.
This seems to be a reference to Meghan’s recent visit to Uvalade, Texas, and the location of the school shooting that claimed the lives of 21 people.
Meghan didn’t bother much – she just put some flowers in a memorial and talked to the locals and talked about how the shooting has put their community in disarray.
Not to be outdone, Meghan’s naked half-brother Thomas Jr. also blew up Meghan’s mourning display.
“It sounds like a promotional stunt. He wants people to think he’s trying to fix things,” Dan Uton said on Tonight, which is apparently Merkels’ favorite show.
“I don’t know what his agenda is, but it’s completely wrong. It’s the most sensitive thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Tom Jr. continued.
“Did he walk a little, like he was on a stage? He’s just trying to make himself more beautiful.”
Thomas made an appeal directly to Meghan:
“Stop the evil PR attack. If you want to sow some love and support for my father, come forward and give some support.”
From there, he confirms that Thomas Sr.’s health problems will prevent him from attending the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and, of course, he believes it’s all Meghan’s fault.
“My dad is here, in the room with me. He wants to say that he was very much looking forward to attending the jubilee celebrations. He really wanted to be there and he sent his greetings to the Queen,” said Tom Jr.
“[Meghan] No attempt was made to contact. He still has the same phone number that he always has, ”he continued.
“He had every chance to get there. He’s only three or four hours away. How long has he been late now? As a person he has to find out.”
An insider told Newsweek that Meghan would love to communicate with her father, but her siblings insist on working with each other and she is probably not interested in playing that game.
“She wants to know if there is a way to communicate with her father in person, without the other family knowing or getting involved,” the source said.
“Meghan can’t communicate with her honest siblings because she believes they have their own agenda.
“If he can communicate with their father, he wants it to be completely private. It won’t involve Netflix, it won’t involve any photographs, and it won’t involve any paparazzi tip-off.”
Of course, this is the same Thomas Merkel who sold Meghan’s personal letter on a tabloid.
So if and when Meghan communicates with her again, you can be sure that it will not be private.
