Simo Rex opened up about his relationship with Meghan Markle:
Recently, actor Simon Rex who worked with Meghan in 2005, revealed the truth about his relationship with Meghan Markle on Hollywood Raw podcast. When it was asked about the relationship rumours he had with Meghan Markle, he spilled the beans. Simon revealed that a publication tried to bribe him to lie about their relationship. In fact, the actor has often been labeled as one of Meghan’s ‘ex-boyfriends’.
In Simon’s words, “There’s zero truth to the claims. Nothing happened. We never even kissed. We hung out once in a very non-datey way”. Furthermore, he continued, “She was just someone I had met on a TV show and we got lunch. That was the extent of it.”
That’s not it! Some British tabloids mischaracterised the interaction that took place between the two actors. Simon revealed, “When that story broke, a couple of British tabloids offered to pay me a lot of money to say a lie that we actually hooked up.” However, Simon wasn’t interested in the bribe and strictly denied to abet, “I said no to a lot of money because I didn’t feel right lying and f*cking up the royal f*cking family.”
While all this is shocking, what’s more, shocking is the amount of money he was offered to lie about his relationship with Meghan Markle. “It was a lot of money, man. I think they offered me like $70,000.”
