Jameela Jamil is known for being outspoken, especially when it comes to rumors. The 34-year-old Jamil took Twitter to clarify claims made by a British tabloid that she has been quarantined with her “best friend”, Meghan Markle.
The tabloid claimed that The Good Place star is in Santa Barbara, California along with the Duchess of Sussex where she lives with Prince Harry and their one-year-old son, Archie.
“LOL. Went to a hotel in SB for a romantic getaway with my boyfriend… and have seen 8 days of articles with increasingly ridiculous stories, none of which are consistent, none of which make sense… (all to now create the lie that she controls me and coordinates my every move),” Jamil tweeted with a screenshot of the rumored headline.
The actress went on and said, “I’ve met this woman once. Ever. #BestFriends These articles are a strategy to now blame her for MY every word and move. And to attempt to discredit my calling them out as if it isn’t a *FACT* that they bully and harass her for clicks, to feed Britain’s already sturdy xenophobia.”
She also criticized the British media and wrote, “As the conversation around racism in UK media is heating up, they are scrambling to justify years of racially motivated abuse/harassment by turning the public against her based on lies and rumors. Remember how they printed she would ‘thicken the Royal blue blood with EXOTIC DNA?’”
However, Jamil defended the duo after the Netflix deal was announced and sarcastically tweeted about it. “Oh no! But how is everyone going to keep perpetuating the lie that they live off British tax payers?! It’s so exciting to see how this will somehow be twisted,” she wrote.
On Sept. 2 Harry and Markle announced their official Netflix deal that involves documentaries, children’s programming, document-series, and producing scripted series. On March 31, the couple stepped down from the Royal Family.
