JESSICA Mulroney has insisted her and Meghan Markle "are family" and claimed the Duchess of Sussex "checks up on her daily" after she was embroiled in a race row.
Earlier this year, mum-of-three Jessica was accused of abusing her "wealth and privilege" by influencer Sasha Exeter to attempt to shut her up in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In July, an insider claimed Jessica was "devastated and distraught that Meghan had done nothing to stand up for her publicly" amid claims she'd been "ditched" by the Duchess.
However, the Canadian stylist – who lost her job on ABC's Good Morning America along with a number of fashion deals as a result of the scandal – says Meghan is in touch with her everyday.
Posting a statement on her Instagram stories, she wrote: "I'm going to tell this once and for all. Meghan and I are family.
"She is the kindest friend and has checked up on me every day."
She then accused "tabloid culture" of "creating lies and hurtful storylines".
The scandal kicked off in June when Sasha Exeter posted a “call to action” to people with large online followings to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
Sasha revealed that Jessica seemed to think this was aimed at her — even though it mentioned nobody by name — and sent her a string of offensive messages.
She also claimed Jessica spoke to sponsors and companies that worked with her, which she said was “an attempt to silence a black woman during this movement behind closed doors”.
She later lost her job on ABC's Good Morning America, along with a number of fashion deals – and sources claimed former royal Meghan was "mortified and heartbroken" by the scandal.
The Duchess of Sussex reportedly met celebrity stylist Jessica Mulroney while she was living in Toronto filming Suits and asked her three children to be included in her bridal party.
In August, Jessica shared a photo of Meghan and her son on the Duchess' wedding day and said it brought her "pure joy".
However, she has since deleted the snap and Marie Claire speculated that Meghan or "someone from Team Sussex" asked Mulroney to take the picture down.
