Model Chrissy Teigen has ignited a Twitter spat with Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha.

The mum-of-two took to the social media platform to share her opinion of Thomas Markle – Meghan’s father – and experienced the wrath of Samantha in return.

“This guy… this guy sucks. What is wrong with him? Let your daughter be happy, please. This is embarrassing,” wrote Chrissy, who’s John Legend’s wife, alongside screen caps of headlines from Thomas Markle’s interviews.

Accusing the royal family of forcing the Duchess to cut him off and claiming it would be easier for his daughter if he died, Markle has been publicly opening up about his daughter since missing the royal wedding in May. The 74-year-old even went as far to say Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, would be disappointed in her son’s new wife.

Notorious for commenting on the royal family, half-sister Samantha Markle, once again, took to the social media platform to defend her father.

“So this pudgy airhead, @ChristineTiegen, who knows nobody in the family is  opening her pie hole? ‘This guy’ is our father and deserves a lot of respect… you are the one who sucks,” wrote Markle.

While Teigen has yet to respond, the internet is defending both the celebrity mum and the Duchess of Sussex against Markle. Some even think the half-sister intentionally misspelled Teigen’s last name to avoid a response from the model.

Teigen may not have responded but the internet is in full support of her opinion, suggesting Markle should avoid using the platform to discuss family matters in the future.
