Thomas Markle drops a number of bombshell revelations about Meghan and Prince Harry in the new documentary, 'Thomas Markle: My Story,' which aired on Britain's Channel 5 on Wednesday.
In a new documentary that aired overnight, Thomas Markle, the estranged father of Meghan Markle, has harsh words to say about his daughter. TODAY senior international correspondent Keir Simmons comments that Thomas Markle appears to be “looking for sympathy,” but is unlikely to get much.
Thomas Markle won't stop talking to the press about his famous daughter anytime soon.
Meghan Markle's father said in a new Channel 5 documentary that he would continue to accept money for appearances because she Prince Harry "owe" him.
"It's time to look after daddy," Thomas Markle said in the documentary, called "Thomas Markle: My Story," which aired on Wednesday night.
And Markle, who was paid for his participation in the documentary, said he planned to continue making money by speaking to the press.
"I'm going to defend myself, and I'm going to be paid for it," he added. "I'm not going to refuse being paid for it. I'll do future things, and be paid for it. I don't care. At this point, they owe me.
"The royals owe me. Harry owes me. Meghan owes me. What I've been through I should be rewarded for. My daughter told me that when I reach my senior years she'll take care of me. I'm in my senior years now — I'm 75 years old — so it's time to look after daddy."
Throughout the one-hour documentary, Markle spoke at length about how he had financially provided for his daughter, and he said she gave him money multiple times after her acting career took off.
"She has given me some money," he said. "She gave me $5,000 for Christmas. Most of the money given to me was gifts. Only on one or two occasions did I ask her for a little help, but it was never more than a couple grand."
