‘He sold his daughter out for a few dollars’: Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson clash on air over Thomas Markle’s 60 Minutes interview
Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson had a major disagreement over Thomas Markle on their KIIS FM radio show on Tuesday.
The duo were discussing Thomas’ interview on 60 Minutes when the conversation turned to whether or not Meghan Markle was right to cut her father out of her life.
‘I feel sorry for the dad, he did one mistake,’ Jackie argued.

‘What, telling everyone when his daughter was about to join the Royal Family?’ Kyle shot back.
Jackie responded: ‘No, he did the set-up pap shots, remember? So he did that, that was it. So he can’t see his grandchildren.
‘He just feels it’s a bit rough. I think it’s a bit rough.’
Kyle was having none of it, boldly stating: ‘He looks like a fat a**ehole if you ask me! He sold his daughter out for a few dollars. What a dog.’

It comes after Thomas criticised Oprah Winfrey for ‘using’ Harry and Meghan to promote her new TV ventures.
Speaking publicly for the first time since the birth of his new granddaughter, Lilibet, the 76-year-old also criticised the ‘cold’ couple for refusing to see him – saying even ‘axe murderers’ are visited by their family.
The retired Hollywood lighting director, who lives 70 miles away from the Sussexes’ LA mansion, has not spoken to the Duchess of Sussex, 39, since she married Prince Harry three years ago and has never met either of his grandchildren.

‘Of course it hurts, there are axe murderers in prison and their family comes to see them,’ he said in a bombshell television interview on 60 Minutes.
‘I’m not an axe murderer. I made one dumb mistake and I’ve been punished for it. This show they’ve been on, they talk about compassion, there’s no compassion for me, no compassion for my family, and no compassion for the world.
‘If I had done something terribly wrong, that would be fine, but I haven’t.’

With his ailing health continuing to deteriorate, Thomas said he fears he will never get to meet Archie, 2, or baby Lilibet, who was born on June 4.
‘I’ll be very disappointed that I don’t get to hold my granddaughter,’ he said.
‘On July 18, I’ll be 77 years old. Most of the Markle men don’t make it much past 80.
‘I might never see my grandchildren. I’m not looking for pity. I’m just saying that’s a reality.
‘All I can say is that I hope eventually I get to see these grandchildren of mine. I’m a pretty good grandpa.’
