Meghan Markle’s former co-star Simon Rex reveals he was offered $70,000 to claim he slept with her: ‘I’ll be on food stamps before I do that…’

Simon Rex and Meghan Markle had appeared together in a 2005 episode of the sitcom Cuts, and their bond didn’t go beyond a friendly lunch.

Actor and rapper Simon Rex revealed that he was offered $70,000 (Rs 50 lakh) by several UK tabloids to say that he had slept with Meghan Markle, when she was still an actor. The truth, he said, was that the two had appeared together in a 2005 episode of the sitcom Cuts, and their bond didn’t go beyond a friendly lunch. Simon refused the offer, and got a note of gratitude from Meghan.
Talking to The Guardian, he said, “I was broke as f—! I really needed the money. But I’ll be on food stamps before I do that.” Simon’s integrity earned him a thank you letter from Meghan, which has been framed at his house. “She said, ‘It’s nice to know there are still good people,’” Simon said. He later confirmed it on Twitter and wrote, “This is true. And I framed the thank you letter she wrote me. She has very nice penmanship, btw.”
Simon Rex had earlier talked about the offer in a 2020 episode of the podcast Hollywood Raw, saying that he and the Duchess of Sussex ‘hung out one time’. “She was someone that I met on a TV show, and we met for lunch and that was the extent of it.” Meghan Markle became famous for her role as Rachel in the legal dramedy Suits. She played the character for over six years, and later exited the show.
