The Sheriff’s Office of Polk County has confirmed that it is investigating cyberbullying related to Samantha Markle and her half-sister, Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.
The sheriff’s office confirmed the investigation to FOX 13, but would not disclose details of who is involved and in what capacity.
Meghan is now part of the British royal family and has the same father as Samantha, who was recently interviewed in Tampa for an episode of “Inside Edition” about her relationship with the Dutch woman.
Samantha Markle made headlines as an outspoken critic of Meghan.
“I think it’s really ridiculous that somebody who is being guided as a millionaire around the world with millions of dollars’ security could ever complain,” she said during the interview. “For her to have the guts to say something like,” It’s nice to know someone wants to know if I’m OK, “I thought,” Well, wow, did you ever ask Dad if he’s OK during two heart attacks? “
Researchers will not say what prompted the question of who the subject is, but according to tweets from a Twitter account that belonged to Samantha, she called for the investigation and is the victim.
Samantha Markle also seemed to be writing on Twitter: “I am not the cyberbully because I point out that she has treated our family like nonsense. People who speak the truth are not bullies.”
It is unclear whether there are arrests in connection with the allegations of harassment. The sheriff’s office will also not say what the direct connection is to Polk County.
