Chrissy Teigen rushes to defend her friend Meghan Markle ahead of Oprah interview and says critics ‘won’t stop until she miscarries’
- Teigan took a swipe at Meghan’s critics in a tweet ahead of Sunday’s interview
- ‘These people won’t stop until she miscarries,’ Teigan said of Meghan’s critics
- Meghan, 39, is pregnant with her second child with husband Prince Harry
- Last fall she shared the painful story of a miscarriage she suffered in July
- Teigen also shared her experience miscarrying and previously defended Meghan
‘This meghan markle s**t is hitting too close to home for me. these people won’t stop until she miscarries. f***ing stop it,’ wrote Tiegan in a tweet on Friday, ahead of the Oprah Winfrey interview.
Meghan, 39, is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child. Last fall she shared the painful story of a miscarriage she suffered in July, detailing the experience in a New York Times op-ed.
It is not the first time that Tiegan has rushed to Meghan’s defense, after the model slammed a tweet in November calling the Times essay a ‘1,000 word op-Ed about herself.’

Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Tiegan called that critic a ‘piece of s**t’ before deleting the tweet and saying she was ‘trying to be nicer’.
Teigan, 35, has also publicly shared her own experience miscarrying, sharing black and white photos of herself in a hospital bed alongside husband John Legend back in October.
It comes as controversy surrounds Harry and Meghan, who are formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, ahead of a highly anticipated interview set to air on Sunday night.
The couple, now living in a mansion in California after stepping down from royal duties in the UK last year, confirmed last month they would not return to their roles as senior royals and sniped at Buckingham Palace in a war of words over the decision.
Since their departure and in the run up to Sunday’s interview, contentious press statements from the couple and Buckingham Palace have escalated.

On Thursday, CBS released a new clip of the interview in which Meghan said the royal family played an ‘active role’ in ‘perpetuating falsehoods about us’.
Buckingham Palace earlier confirmed that an investigation has been launched into claims that Meghan had bullied royal household staff during her time in Britain.
Meghan’s team responded with a statement calling the allegations an ‘attack on her character’ and saying she is ‘deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma.’
‘She is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good,’ the statement added.
Senior royals have banded together ahead of the two-hour interview, and are planning to preempt Sunday’s tell-all interview with a Commonwealth Day celebration to be released earlier in the day.

The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Countess of Wessex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will together address the global impact of the coronavirus pandemic in the program on Sunday afternoon.
The messages will be broadcast from London’s Westminster Abbey, where last year at the Commonwealth Day service Meghan and Harry made their last appearance before giving up royal duties during an acrimonious split from the family.
CBS is set to air the two-hour interview special in the US at 7pm ET on Sunday, while ITV will broadcast the show at 9pm London time on Monday.
Senior royals and Palace aides will watch the much-anticipated interview ‘at the same time’ as the rest of the world, and officials have vowed to ‘reserve judgement’ on the show and will decide on Monday whether to make a public response in light of anything specific Meghan and Harry have to say.
The interview is expected to deal with the couple’s claims of media intrusion into their lives, and their decision to quit royal duties the UK and move to California.
