It's a celebrity's worst nightmare, and one that may well be coming to haunt actress Meghan Markle in future nights, thanks to rumors she's planning to move in with her royal boyfriend, Prince Harry, later this year.
According to the Mail Online, the 35-year-old's estranged half-sister is writing a 'tell all' book in which she details what it was like growing up with the Suits actress as a child.
The publication reports Markle's relative, Samantha Grant, is penning a book with the working title The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister which will reveal what it was like growing up in a bi-racial family with Meghan– a subject Markle recently opened up about in her exclusive essay for ELLE titled 'I'm More Than An 'Other'.
Discussing her book, Grant took to Twitter last month to say:
The 51-year-old mother of three, who reportedly claims Markle had always wanted to be a princess and was 'narcissistic and selfish', also took the opportunity to criticise her half-sister's philanthropic projects – most recently her trip to India to help impoverished women and raise awareness about the need for improved education and sanitation facilities for young women in schools.
Grant also claims she was rejected by Markle in 2008 after she developed multiple sclerosis. However, Samantha's own mother Roslyn has come out in defense of Meghan, telling The Sun: 'Everything she has said about her is a lie.'
The news comes days after Vanity Fair unveiled its latest issue in which Markle poses alongside 'global leaders' including Emma Watson and Canadian President Justin Trudeau, to celebrate the fantastic work men and women are doing around the world to support gender equality.
At this time, we hope the world looks towards the incredible work Markle is doing to raise awareness to social inequality and feminism, rather than a spuriously conceived tell-all book that threatens to dirty her reputation.
