Meghan Markle's dad Thomas Markle is 'bitter' that his children have not paid him back for his generosity
Thomas Markle is reportedly not happy that his children have not given him any money ever since he got retired
Looks like Meghan Markle is not the only one of his children that Thomas Markle has a problem with. It is believed that Thomas is growing “increasingly bitter” with his other children too, as he believes that his past generosity has not been paid back by them.
The Duchess of Sussex's father reportedly told his friends that he expected his children -- Meghan, Samantha Markle, Thomas Markle Jr -- to help hm during his retirement, but none of them has paid him a “f***ing dime”. In the past, Thomas has spoken about investing in Meghan's studies and ensuring that she got the best education, but looks like the father of three is not pleased with how his children are treating him currently.

“While he was working, Tom supported all his children. He was generous," a source close to Thomas told Mirror. "But he made no secret that he expected in his dotage the money he spent on them would be repaid." At the same time, Thomas is reportedly not pleased with the news about his ex-wife, Doria Ragland, moving to Britain to be near Meghan even as his daughter does not seem interested to engage in a conversation with him.
“He says they have not given him a f***ing dime back. He is growing increasingly bitter about it, and it has not been helped by how his ex-wife, Meghan’s mum, has been so welcomed into the royal fold. The fact she could be moving to England has not helped the situation while he is in a pokey home in Mexico," the source added.

Thomas previously revealed that he expected Meghan to take care of him. “I took care of my mother for the last five years of her life," he said. “My daughter said she’d take care of me in my declining years. I’m not talking money, I’m talking about taking care of me. That’s important to me.” This comes after Thomas's daughter, Samantha claimed that her father was set to launch a men's clothing line.
"So excited about my father's new #clothing line for men! Will keep you posted!" read the tweet. However, many people believe that Samantha's recent tweet about the clothing line is yet another effort of the family to draw attention to itself, something they have been doing with regularity ever since Meghan hitched into the British royal family. "Meghan's father launching clothesline. The scam is his clothes going to have a label that says '100% made from money I made belittling my daughter in the media!' Wash with care made of 100% green vile that came from Sam's mouth," wrote one user.
While another added, "#SamanthaMarkle what makes you think that even guys with #Dadbods want to dress like #ThomasMarkle." This seems to be another example of the Markles trying to cash in on their association with Meghan, something which Samantha has admitted many times, saying "we all have to survive".
