Thomas Markle Jr. has officially signed with Australia’s premiere talent agent, Max Markson.

Markle Jr., who is the estranged half-brother of Meghan Markle, recently travelled from the US to Australia ahead of his appearance on Channel Seven’s upcoming series Big Brother VIP.    

Markson, who is described as a ‘black-belt master of the art of spin’ announced the news via Instagram on Sunday, uploading a promo shot for Big Brother VIP alongside a caption that confirmed Markle Jr. was officially on his books.

The talent guru also manages four other Big Brother VIP housemates: former Trump aide Omarosa Newman, Married At First Sight star Jessika Power, NRL player Matt Cooper and Kyle Sandilands’ ex-girlfriend Imogen Anthony. 

Unlike most of his fellow celebrity housemates, Markle Jr. has yet to finesse his online profile – as his Instagram page boasts a mere 83 followers.

Markle Jr. has posted on his Instagram page just once – a six-minute video uploaded in April describing what he believes to be the ‘truth’ about his estranged half-sister Meghan.

In a promo for Big Brother VIP, Markle Jr. claims he ‘warned’ Prince Harry about the actress before their marriage. 

‘I’m Meghan Markle’s brother, I’m the biggest brother of them all,’ Thomas says while introducing himself in the video. 

He then adds: ‘I told Prince Harry, I think she’s going to ruin your life. She’s very shallow’.

Markle Jr. does not have a relationship with his famous younger sister, who is married to Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.

He was not invited to the Sussexes’ wedding in May 2018, and at the time hadn’t seen the Suits actress for about seven years. 

Markson has earned a reputation for representing headline-grabbers over the years.

In the lates 2000s, he famously repped the likes of Lara Bingle and Candice Warner (née Falzon).  

He was there to guide Lara, then known as the model in the ‘So where the bloody hell are you?’ tourism ads, through her scandalous early years in the limelight.

And he was Candice’s manager at the time of her now-infamous 2007 ‘toilet tryst’ with rugby union star Sonny Bill Williams.

He is also known for cashing in on the short-lived fame of viral internet celebrities, reality stars and Instagram influencers.
