This isn't the first time a Duchess of Sussex aggressor has come up empty.


If you haven't gotten the memo yet, let me spell it out: DO NOT COME FOR MEGHAN MARKLE.

Splash News & Picture Agency, which has declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy, appears to be the latest Markle aggressor to find themselves in a bad financial (and reputational) situation.

The company's president, Emma Curzon, cited three reasons for the declaration: the pandemic and the consequent decrease in both celebrity images and media company budgets, as well as "two ongoing litigation cases and the costs of defending these cases."

One of the aforementioned cases involves the Duchess of Sussex and photos obtained by Splash during a "private family outing" in Canada.

Last month, it was announced that Markle had won the privacy suit she brought against The Mail on Sunday following the 2019 publication of private correspondence between her and her father, Thomas Markle Sr. And just two weeks ago, days after Markle and Prince Harry's Oprah Winfrey tell-all aired in the U.S., longtime Markle bully Piers Morgan "decided" to leave his post as Good Morning Britain (after receiving more than 41,000 complaints, mind you). 

Splash isn't the first public entity to lose its battle against Markle, and it won't be the last. So, if you too are thinking of picking a misguided fight with the duchess, verbal or otherwise, I suggest you don't.
