Did Meghan Markle really turn down an offer to star in the Charlie’s Angels reboot? That’s the claim from one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop, however, can exclusively reveal the truth. We’re told the report is “fiction.”

The actress is currently starring in “Suits,” but an article published in the latest issue of Star claims the “bride-in-waiting” turned down a “big-bucks Hollywood offer” to star in a big-screen remake of “Charlie’s Angels,” the TV show that starred Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson, and Jaclyn Smith as three crime-solving detectives. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Just a couple of years ago, Meghan would have sold her soul to star in such a glamorous role.” The outlet’s supposed “royal tattler” goes on to allege, “Now she knows she’s way better off becoming a princess in real life than playing a bouncy detective on the big screen.”

A somewhat skeptical Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the actress, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s story is complete “fiction.” While it’s true there’s yet another adaptation of the TV series from the late 1970s and early 1980s (after Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu previously did two Charlie’s Angels features), Markle was never offered one of the three female leads for the next film. We’re told the publication’s claim is simply a fabrication. As we noted a couple of weeks ago, however, Kristen Stewart is being considered for the Charlie’s Angels reboot.

Of course, we’re not remotely surprised by Star’s latest concocted tale. Remember, Gossip Cop corrected the often disproven magazine earlier this year when it falsely alleged in a cover story that Markle and Prince Harry were moving to America. And shortly before that made-up article, we called out the publication for wrongly reporting that Markle was pregnant with Prince Harry’s baby. Evidently, the tabloid’s “royal tattler” is royally clueless about Markle.
