Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle Sr., recently claimed that he has received multiple death threats. However, they were not from royal fans or the members of the British royal family.
The former lighting director told Daily Mail that he was threatened by Jose Sandoval, the former boyfriend of one of his close friends Lori Davis. Sandoval has also conducted a campaign of terror against Davis and her 11-year-old daughter Jocelyn. The young girl refers to Thomas as an uncle.
According to the Duchess of Sussex’s dad, Sandoval drove past Thomas’ house in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, and shouted at him at the top of his lungs. “I’m going to kill you, you fat [expletive]. However, Sandoval has denied the claims.
Davis also submitted a formal complaint against her ex-boyfriend, and the eight-page document saw her accusing Sandoval of slashing Thomas’ tires as part of his demented series of attacks.
“He grabbed me by the neck while twisting it as if he was choking me and I have pictures of these aggressions. He spat on my face… he goes to my uncle’s house and tells him that he is going to kill him because he is constantly hiding me and threatens and insults him,” Davis wrote.
Davis and Thomas got to know each other after they lived in the same gated community in Mexico. She was previously rumored to be Thomas’ girlfriend after they were spotted hanging out at an Italian restaurant.
“Tom has been nothing but a supportive friend. He’s been a rock for me and my daughter and I’m sorry he’s been dragged into this violent and abusive situation. My daughter calls tom ‘uncle.’ He’s the most genuine and kind person I know and the most stable male figure my daughter has ever known. My ex-boyfriend is demented. He has threatened to kill me and my daughter multiple times and has made multiple threats to Tom’s life,” Davis said.
