As for the longer version, Mulroney broke it down definitively in her post, writing:

"I'm going to tell this once and for all. Meghan and I are family. She is the kindest friend and has checked up on me everyday. Tabloid culture is atrocious. It creates lies and hurtful storylines. Stop feeding into it. Done."

This summer, Mulroney was at the center of a "PR crisis" (opens in new tab) when Black influencer Sasha Exeter accused her of using "textbook white privilege" to attempt to discourage brands from working with her. Following the scandal, tabloids reports claimed that Meghan was "mortified" (opens in new tab) by the situation and distancing herself from Mulroney (opens in new tab) as a result. Clearly, none of those reports were true and this friendship is as strong as ever.
