Whenever someone becomes insanely popular seemingly overnight, you know there will be people coming out of the woodwork to "expose" them for the shady individuals they obviously are. So no one was exactly surprised when Meghan Markle's estranged sister started threatening to tell the story of her spoiled brat kid sister.

Um, yeah. Samantha Grant, 52, is the much-older sister of Prince Harry's serious girlfriend, and according to her, she practically raised the potential future princess until she was 12. However, an insider insists that Grant is way out of line, and the only thing that has ever connected the two women is sharing a common father.

Grant only recently has changed her last name to Markle, hardly indicative of someone who grew up in a tight-knit family with her dad and half-sister. A source confirmed to E! News that the two were never raised as sisters, and that "Meghan was raised an only child by her loving parents."

The insider also claimed that Grant "has had a lifelong history of lying and manipulation," and "is setting her sights on her for no reason." They continued that the sisters' contact through the years has been very limited, and that Meghan has been nothing but kind to her. Apparently they haven't even had anything to do with each other since Meg was a little girl!

Whoever was speaking on Meghan's behalf also quipped about Grant, " This is an old, jealous woman (she is in her 50s! who does this in their 50s?) doing anything she can to take advantage of the situation to sell lies for money and fame ... Meghan has never done anything to her and continues to take the high road."

We're not sure what Meghan's half-sister plans to write in the book, other than that she said Meghan might like some parts but not others. But it does seem pretty clear that she's just trying to capitalize on Meghan's relationship with Prince Harry and subsequent fame. Can't say we're surprised.
