Ever since Meghan Markle joined the royal family, she has been under extreme scrutiny, appearing in virtually every British tabloid for even the smallest of things. Her every action and decision has seemingly been picked apart to the point that it feels the British media is trying to portray her in a negative light.

From her decisions that stray away from royal family tradition, to a rumored tension with Kate Middleton, to supposedly pulling Prince Harry away from his family, she has been attacked on different occasions from media members and unnamed sources.

But she has some support backing her up in the form of one, George Clooney.

“I do want to say, I just saw this piece,” he reportedly mused. “They’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere, she’s been pursued and vilified. She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she is being pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was, and it’s history repeating itself.”

He is referring to the former Princess Dianna, who went through one of the most high-profile and ugly divorces in recent memory with Prince Charles back in the mid-1990s.

He continued, “And we’ve seen how that ends. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to see that. You’re taking a letter from a daughter to a father and broadcasting it everywhere. She’s getting a raw deal there, it’s irresponsible. I’m sort of surprised by that.”

He is alluding to the five-page letter the Suits alum wrote to her father Thomas Markle in an attempt to fix the duo’s relationship. But, the Duchess’ half-sister Samantha Markle did not appreciate the comments, taking a shot at the actor on Twitter.

“Hey Looney Clooney!,” she wrote, “Your lawyer wife should have taught you not to make statements without facts.” She then tried to use Clooney’s own relationship with his family against him, tweeting, “I doubt #GeorgeClooney would ghost his mother for no legitimate reason. Be quiet Georgie.”

Thomas Markle has been making his rounds with interviews, accusing his daughter of things that are either false or simply don’t matter. Why? Who knows. Perhaps it’s an attempt for publicity or his way of getting something from his daughter. But it’s clear that she does not have the best relationship with her father’s side of the family, and it has led to non-stop public drama between the two.

Markle wrote a letter to her father, asking him to stop, but he proceeded to publish it online for everyone to read, which doesn’t exactly seem fatherly, and it’s put her back into the news for the wrong reason. Read more here.
