27. They Never Hung Out With Jameela Jamil
In late August 2020, strange reports began to circulate claiming that Meghan and Harry invited Jameela Jamil and her boyfriend James Blake to self-quarantine with them in Santa Barbara. Tabloids picked up that particular story when Jamil and Blake were seen walking the beach close to the Sussex's house in Santa Barbara, and because Jamil defended Meghan against internet rolls on Twitter. She tweeted that Meghan was being targeted because of her race, and because "she’s smart, strong, opinionated, rebellious, beautiful, happy and has everything they never will.”

But, of course, none of that is true. "Went to a hotel in SB for a romantic getaway with my boyfriend," Jamil tweeted on September 3, "and have seen 8 days of articles with increasingly ridiculous stories, none of which are consistent, none of which make sense... (all to now create the lie that she controls me and coordinates my every move)." 

She further discussed the topic in an Instagram post, writing that the British press was trying to fabricate a relationship between Jamil and Meghan to discredit her unbiased opinions about the Duchess. 

"Now they are hyperbolizing some relationship they have decided I have with her to make it seem as if I am saying these things out of 'loyalty' rather than because it's right to call out misogyny and racism when you see it because an attack against her, is an attack on all WOC/Black women," she shared on Instagram. "She's the symbol of hope and power to be deconstructed before any of us get any delusions of grandeur."
