Simon Rex allegedly turned down 70,000 to lie on Meghan Markle. According to Rex a major company was willing to pay him to exaggerate having had sex with Meghan Markle. He also stated that the two of them only hung out once.
Rex takes no credibility of being a hero to Markle’s reputation. He said, “I just said the truth … and took a lot less money for that.”
Simon Rex spoke about the topic on Hollywood Raw Podcast.
“Nothing happened. We never even kissed. We hung out once in a very non-datey way,” he explained. “But it gets spun into we dated. She was just someone that I met on a TV show and we got lunch. That was the extent of it. Nothing happened, just to be clear.”
“It’s funny because 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,” he then claimed. “I said no to a lot of money because I didn’t feel right lying and f–king up the royal f–king family. I didn’t want to be whacked in the alley of London because I f–king lied.”
He said the tabloid, which he didn’t name, “wanted me to say we basically f–ked, or tell us a sexy story.” Rex also said they offered him $70,000 for a “juicy story.” In the end, he says he told them “the truth … and took a lot less money for that.”
Simon Rex continued saying,
“I didn’t feel right doing it,” he continued, admitting that there was a time in his life where he probably would have taken them up on the offer. “But [I was] like, that doesn’t feel like and I don’t need the money that bad, so I said no.”
Rex also said he didn’t want to be “that guy” and possibly upset Harry. “Maybe I’m too nice,” he added, “A lot of people would have done it. I don’t like that, it feels weird.”
All we can say is Meghan Markle has some real haters, to offer 70,000 for a lie like this. Listen to the Interview below and tell us your thoughts.
