"This guy sucks": Chrissy Teigen slams Meghan Markle's dad over his embarrassing tactics to get his daughter to talk to him
Chrissy clearly did not appreciate Thomas Markle's latest jibe that perhaps if he died then his daughter Meghan would get all the publicity and sympathy.
Chrissy Teigen is very candid about supporting the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle as her father Thomas Markle continues to create more drama and chaos while talking to the press. Teigen was quick to slam Thomas for his latest rant about his daughter Meghan.
Teigen took to Twitter to share, "This guy...this guy sucks. What is wrong with him? Let your daughter be happy, please. This is embarrassing." She also went on to include some screenshots of Thomas' interview. Thomas recently revealed to the DailyMail that he has not spoken to his daughter for around 10 weeks now and believes that he was cut off from the royal family for the staged paparazzi photos which were published a little before Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry.

Teigen and Meghan do share a special connection as the two were "suitcase girls" on 'Deal or No Deal'. Meghan appeared in 34 episodes of the show between 2006 and 2007, while Teigen was in eight from 2007 to 2008. The two also attended the DirecTV's Beach Bowl in the year 2014.
Thomas had claimed, "I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off. Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter." Thomas also shared that he would like to send Meghan a birthday card for her special day on August 4 but has no clue about whether the card would actually reach her or not. "I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn't explode," he shared.
Meghan's father is of the view that his daughter may be better off if he dies so "everyone would be filled with sympathy for her". "It wouldn't be so bad. I have something of a Buddhist philosophy about death. Perhaps it would be easier for Meghan if I died. Everybody would be filled with sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I'd hate to die without speaking to Meghan again," he continued.
Thomas is also fearful of the fact that he may never get a chance to see his grandchildren due to the criticisms of the royal family. "How tragic is that, to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family? They're just like a Monty Python sketch. Say a few critical words about the Royal Family and they put their fingers in their ears, cover their eyes and pull the blinds down. They don't want to know about it."
He also has a major issue with Meghan and her "sense of superiority" and also took credit for making her "the Duchess that she is today". "I tell you, I've just about reached my limit with Meghan and the Royal Family. They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won't be silenced," he went on to add.
Before Teigen asked Thomas to quiet down, it was Sharon Osbourne who implored the Duchess' dad to stop embarrassing his daughter and she also added for good measure that he should stop his drinking habit as well. Her comments certainly did not sit well with him.
