Meghan Markle has, reportedly, decided to cut ties with her controversial BFF Jessica Mulroney, sources claim.
Last week, Meghan Markle’s BFF made headlines due to a racist incident. Sasha exeter called out Jessica Mulroney for “white privilege.” The Canadian stylist already apologized, but the Duchess of Sussex wants to move on from their friendship.
Meghan Markle no longer wants to be associated with Jessica
Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney are close pals. The latter helped Prince Harry and Markle hide their romance when they were still not ready to announce it to the world.
However, at present, Markle seems determined to end their ties. The controversy involving Mulroney reportedly left the former Suits star mortified.
“Meghan is absolutely mortified that she’s been dragged into this complete mess. She said Jessica is in no way a racist, but the way she handled the situation (with the fashion influencer) was tone-deaf and heartbreaking,” a close pal of Markle said per Daily Mail.
“Meghan said friends reflect friends and because of what’s at stake she can no longer be associated with Jessica, at least not in public. She has to do what she has to do in order to preserve her dignity and her own reputation.”
Jessica Mulroney’s scandal brings embarrassment to Prince Harry’s wife, who is a woman of color. In addition, the duchess devoted her time during her stay in the royal family to promoting racial equality.
Mulroney immediately faced the consequences of her racist actions against influencer Sasha Exeter. ABC fired her from Good Morning America. In addition, the network canceled her upcoming reality show.

I’ve been silent. Not anymore! I’m used to being so transparent on this platform. I think it’s the main reason why most of you follow me. Today, I’m opening up about something that has been haunting me for the last week. I have felt like a complete fraud fighting for racial equality and using my voice openly here, while letting a white woman silence mine behind closed doors. In sharing this very personal story, I know that I am risking a lot. Opening myself up to criticism, bullying and potential ramifications with my job in this space. However, I must speak my truth. Enough is enough. Hopefully my voice will be heard by many and help change things for the next generation and for my daughter Maxwell… because I will be dammed if my child ever has to deal with this level of ignorance.
Jessica Mulroney’s controversy revisited
According to Sasha Exeter, in a video shared on Instagram, Meghan Marke’s close pal did not approve of her decision to encourage other influencers to use their platform to support the black community.
Mulroney allegedly threatened her livelihood. Exeter couldn’t believe what Mulroney did, especially that she is black and a single mom.
“Listen, I am by no means calling Jess a racist but what I will say is this, she is very well aware of her wealth, her perceived power and privilege because of the color of her skin. And that, my friends, gave her the momentary confidence to come for my livelihood in writing,” Exeter said.
Mulroney threatened to sue Exeter
Meghan Markle’s friend issued a public apology on Instagram. However, many questioned Jessica Mulroney’s move because she also threatened to sue Sasha Exeter for a libel case.
Based on Exeter’s screenshot, Mulroney brought up the libel case after saying sorry to her on social media.
