It's weird all this news around her father, like if he's going to attend functions or meet with his daughter. Like seriously, he really seems like a deadbeat dad, either do everything or nothing.

My understanding is that she saw him regularly after her parents' divorce, and lived with her father during the week while in high school because of the proximity of his home to her school. He also paid tuition for her to attend Northwestern, and helped support her as she pursued her acting career. How do you conclude that he is a deadbeat dad? She is now a 37-year-old married woman. What is supposed to be doing for her, again?

Although I question Thomas Markle's judgment in some things related to his interaction with the media, I really wish that people would leave the man alone.

He sounds like a drama queen. A deadbeat dad? No.

That is not the definition of a dad, do everything, or a definition of deadbeat dad, do nothing. He obviously is not used to this much attention and naturally will be making all kinds of blunders.

No,not a deadbeat dad but he has made some really bad choices by selling info to the media that has hurt his daughter and destroyed any trust. He should stop talking to the Press

Is their relationship really any of our business?

This. I think he's made some poor decisions since the engagement, but I haven't ever read anything to suggest he was a deadbeat while she was growing up. Kind of weird to start a thread like this without an article or something to indicate where you got the idea.

He’s a perfect example of someone who’s trying to capitalize on her fame. Same with her half-siblings. All of them are pathetic.
