Actor Simon Rex Claims He Was Offered $70,000 To Lie About 'Hooking Up' With Meghan Markle

Taylor Sakellis 20 Mar 2020

As you probably know by now, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have stepped down from their senior royal titles and will just be like a super cute and casual and kinda royal couple instead.

This decision was made because Meghan and Harry essentially said they wanted to live a more normal life with the ability to focus on their philanthropic work.

Well, what they actually said was: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support."

"Nothing happened. We never even kissed. It was just like, we hung out once in a very non-date-y way," Simon explained on the "Hollywood Raw" podcast.

He continued: "She was just someone I had met on a TV show and, like, we got lunch. That was the extent of it."

"The tabloids, actually, when that story broke, a couple British tabloids offered to pay me a lot of money to say a lie that we actually hooked up."

“And dude. I said no to a lot of money because I didn’t feel right lying and [expletive] up the royal [expletive] family....It was a lot of money, man. I think they offered me, like, $70,000."
