Jameela Jamil hit back at the British tabloids after the emergence of a lot of made-up stories about her and Meghan Markle.
There are different claims about the two women. Allegedly, Jameela Jamil is self-quarantining with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in their new Montecito home.
The truth behind the lies made against Jamil
Jamil was in a romantic getaway with her boyfriend, James Blake, when she saw articles about her and Meghan.
“[I] have seen 8 days of articles with increasingly ridiculous stories, none of which are consistent, none of which make sense,” she said in a tweet. “All to now create the lie that she controls me and coordinates my every move.”
In a different post on Instagram, the 34-year-old actress addressed the rumors they are now the best of friends, living together during the lockdown.
“I’ve met this woman once ever,” she shared.
The radio presenter then revealed she and her family had been subjected to press harassment. Everything started when she called out the U.K. tabloids over its racist behavior toward Meghan.
“I’ve been subjected to press harassment,” she continued. “My family started being harassed and offered money for dirt on me.”
This started only within a week after Jamil made her first tweet “in defense of” Meghan.
From here, an excessive amount of lies and rumors about her started to emerge. Jamil believed it was created to discredit her as an individual and to convince people she’s crazy.
She also saw it as a move to devalue her opinion to anyone who might have realized she’s right.

Ps. While we are normalizing armpit wrinkles, Lets also get on board with the fact that squishy knees are fucking NORMAL (all knees are normal! We are supposed to be varied!) and don’t need to be hidden away or operated on. Anyway, I like to have puppy piss pads in the background of all my fashion shots. The man on my chest is my friend and fave @moses whose music and general self you must check out immediately. 😇
Jamil, accusing British media of manipulating the truth
Jamil accused the British press of manipulating the truth about her real connection to Meghan. She saw this as a move for the institution to “further its own agenda.”
“Now they are hyperbolizing some relationship they have decided I have with her,” she explained. “To make it seem as if I am saying these things out of ‘loyalty’ rather than because it’s right to call out misogyny and racism when you see it.”
She added that an attack made against Meghan is also an attack on all Women of Color and Black women.
Jamil stressed the former actress is the “symbol of hope and power.”
Jameela Jamil shows strong support to Meghan
Jamil has been showing her support to Meghan after the latter encouraged people to cast their vote in the upcoming U.S. election, People noted.
As the Duchess of Sussex’s move met a lot of criticisms, the model made a tweet against Prince Andrew.
“I *THINK* they may be more embarrassed by their alleged resident pedo Andrew who was besties with a sex trafficker,” she wrote.
“Than an American supporting women voting in her own country, and loosely referencing the importance of general democracy which is being threatened here currently.”
Meghan Markle had been friends with Jamil since Prince Harry’s wife chose her to be part of her guest-edited September 2019 issue of British Vogue.
