Thomas Markle is a retired television lighting director and director of photography. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is his youngest child. Thomas recently argued that because he is an elderly man who poses no threat, a restraining order against him is unnecessary.

TMZ reports that Thomas Markle claims that he is too old and frail to pose a threat to famed paparazzo Jeff Rayner that would require a restraining order. However, Jeff claims that he still requires protection since he believes Thomas has nothing to lose. According to court documents acquired by the outlet, Thomas is seeking a judge to remove the 2-year restraining order that was imposed last month.

Markle claimed that Jeff is harassing him by, among other things, claiming Jeff lied about him having a gun. In his request, Thomas writes, “I am no threat to anyone because I’m 78 years old” adding he’s had “2 heart attacks, one stroke, and have a cane for walking.” Jeff responded with his own court documents. He stated that Markle’s age and bad health are the main reasons he is still concerned.

Simply put, he believes that Markle has nothing to lose because his time is running short. He points to Markle’s original threat which read, “If they tell me I’ve got terminal cancer, then I’ll kill [Jeff] because I have nothing to lose.” The co-owner of the news agency Coleman-Rayner got the restraining order against Thomas last month.

He did it after the alleged threat was revealed in Tom Bower’s book, “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between The Windsors.” Let’s see what happens. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
