Is Meghan Markle's alleged "wild past" being erased by MI5 agents? That's the latest claim coming from one of this week's tabloids, but Gossip Cop can set the record straight. We're told it's "nonsense."
According to the National Enquirer, Britain's MI5 spy agency will have "scrubbed" Markle's "party girl past clean" by the time she walks down the aisle next spring. In its article, a so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "MI5 has been scouring America and Canada for months, silencing Meghan's old friends and acquaintances with hush money and non-disclosure agreements. The press will find a big nothing." The publication's purported "insider" further contends MI5 is working to conceal the actress's supposed "raunchy past" by "flagging potential trouble spots" in what's allegedly called "Operation Clean Sweep."
The magazine's questionable "source" goes on to maintain, "Meghan's not the squeaky clean bride the royal family hoped for," before asserting that they've launched an "all-out campaign" to "whitewash her boozing, binge eating, affairs and plastic surgery." The Enquirer's tipster, a purported "insider" at Markle's sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma, goes on to claim the former "Suits" actress was a "hot mess" at college. "She got a fake ID to go drinking at a dump called the Keg. It was a crazy scene full of drunken underage girls and boys," alleges the publication's unnamed and untraceable "source."
Curiously, the dogged U.K. press hasn't covered any of this. And the reason is that other than vague assertions about fairly typical college behavior, the claims about Markle are nothing more than fabrications. Equally absurd is the contention about Markle having been a "hot mess." While it's true Markle was in a sorority at Northwestern University, she was also a model student and dubbed as a "theater nerd." Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the future royal and we're assured the story about her "wild past" being erased by British MI5 agents is complete "nonsense."
Of course, we're hardly surprised by the supermarket tabloid's newest manufactured tale about the bride-to-be. Just last month, Gossip Cop corrected the often discredited magazine for falsely alleging in a ridiculous report that Markle stopped eating garlic weeks before meeting the queen. Much like that cooked-up article, the latest claim about MI5 having Markle's past "scrubbed" is also untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
