Meghan Markle is finding it “frustrating and stressful” that she has “no voice” against a barrage of bad headlines, a new report has claimed.

The pregnant Duchess of Sussex is said to be “fed up” that royal protocol means she isn’t allowed to “stand up for herself”, US Weekly reports.

Since it was announced she and Prince Harry were moving out of Kensington Palace, multiple reports have claimed Meghan is responsible for a rift between the two brothers and had been “demanding” towards staff.

Apart from denying that Kate reprimanded Meghan for giving out to her staff, Kensington Palace has refused to comment on mounting reports of a division between the Cambridges and Sussexes.

That Meghan can’t stand up for herself using social media has proved frustrating and has left Harry feeling the pressure too, US Weekly claims.

“She’s always relied on her own voice to stand up for others, and for herself. So not being able to say anything is a debilitating feeling,” a source told the magazine.

“She’s always been so independent, her entire life, and that’s all been taken away from her. She’s always been able to clap back on social media and now she can’t.”

In the months before her marriage to Harry, Meghan shut down her Instagram and Twitter, with Hello! magazine reporting working royals aren’t allowed to have their own social media accounts.

But minor non-working royals are permitted to have them, with Princess Eugenie opening a public Instagram account this year.

Before her relationship with Harry Meghan was an avid social media user, posting on everything from politics to glamorous overseas holidays.

Earlier this week, a candid boomerang-style post of Meghan at the British Fashion Awards was mysteriously wiped from Instagram.

A photo of Meghan at the awards posted by her best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney was also deleted.

Joy Behar under fire for snapping at Meghan McCain when asked not to bash Trump during George H.W. Bush tribute

Joy Behar is taking some heat for remarks she made during a segment paying tribute to the late President George H.W. Bush on “The View.”

On Monday morning, the liberal comedian invoked President Trump as she was praising the 41st president’s policy on pollution and the Clean Air Act Amendments his administration passed in 1990, something she thought “wasn’t picked up” by many other since his passing.

Behar was quick to attack the current president for his position on the issue. “This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did,” she said. “And if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect.”

Conservative co-host Meghan McCain quickly jumped in and said, "I don’t want to talk about Trump. We’re honoring a great president who has passed.”

“Excuse me a second, please!” Behar exclaimed, to which McCain replied that she wasn’t “interested” in hearing about her one-issue position, which led to a fiery exchange between the two, as Whoopi Goldberg abruptly ended the segment before a commercial break.

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that Behar’s remark during the Bush tribute was a “microcosm” of the media’s “permanent obsession” with Trump.

“Joy Behar’s insistence that the Bush tribute center around Trump was a microcosm of the media’s permanent obsession with the current president, showing an embarrassing inability to cover stories or pay tribute to people like George H. W. Bush or John McCain without their cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome breaking through,” Houck said.

Mediaite editor Caleb Howe agreed that there was an “obsession” that was made apparent by Behar.

“Behar doesn’t even know what she did wrong,” Howe said. “Like a cat person who can’t smell the litter box.”

Meanwhile, Joe Concha, media reporter from The Hill, suggested that Behar should take her criticisms to her colleague Goldberg, who admitted last week during a discussion on climate change that she doesn’t “walk on water” since she takes private jets because she doesn’t want to “be on a plane” where she has to talk to “a million people.”

“The point of the segment was to honor George H.W. Bush and his extraordinary life and achievements while serving his country in a myriad of ways,” Concha told Fox News. “Broaching Trump, like someone needing to reach a daily criticism quota was a disservice to Bush.”

Houck expressed a similar sentiment, saying that McCain’s reaction to Behar “symbolized the frustration” many Americans have regarding a “fixation” with Trump, especially in news stories where he’s mostly a “minor player.”

"The View" co-host Goldberg alluded to the current president at the beginning of the segment, acknowledging the comparison between him and Bush 41 “puts everybody in a different perspective” and reminds everyone “how you can still not agree with somebody but be respectful of somebody,” pointing to his bond with his predecessor, former President Bill Clinton.

Many on Twitter were quick to call out Behar's remarks.

While others felt that McCain was wrong in interrupting Behar.

Behar also complimented H.W. Bush on Monday's show, saying it seemed like he came from a “loving, kind place.”

Madonna shades Lady Gaga, accuses her of ripping her off again over ‘A Star is Born’ press tour

After fans noticed a trend in Lady Gaga’s “A Star is Born” press tour, Madonna couldn’t resist the urge to take a jab at the singer, who she’s had a bit of animosity with in the past.

While promoting her co-starring role alongside Bradley Cooper, fans noticed Gaga repeatedly saying the same line in reference to her how she was selected for the role.

“There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole life,” Gaga has said several times.

Madonna, who has criticized Gaga for allegedly ripping her off in the past, posted a story on Instagram from an interview back in the 1980s where she says the inverse of the now-popular Gaga quote.

“If there are 100 people in a room and 99 say they liked it, I only remember the one person who didn’t.”

Fans were split on social media with some siding with Gaga while others agreed with Madonna that the “Bad Romance” singer is known to follow a little too closely in her footsteps. As Page Six notes, this is hardly the first time that the duo have criticized each other.

In 2012, Madonna publicly stated that she doesn’t think Gaga is original. She later called her hit “Born this Way” “reductive.”

Gaga fired back in 2016 in an interview with Billboard.

“Madonna and I are very different,” she said. “But I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I'm a producer. I'm a writer. What I do is different."

Arnold Schwarzenegger calls Trump ‘meshugge’ on climate accord

Arnold Schwarzenegger said despite President Donald Trump's decision to walk away from an international accord to curb global warming, the United States is "still in" the agreement.

The actor and former California governor told delegates gathered for United Nations climate talks in Poland on Monday that "America is more than just Washington or one leader."

Calling Trump "meshugge" – Yiddish for "crazy" – for deciding to withdraw from the landmark climate accord, Schwarzenegger insisted the 2015 agreement has widespread support at the local and state levels in the U.S.

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger delivers a speech during the opening of COP24 UN Climate Change Conference 2018 in Katowice, Poland, Monday, Dec. 3, 2018.)

He said local leaders should be invited to next year's annual conference and emphasized the point in trademark fashion by saying: "And if you do that, I promise you: I'll be back."

The "Terminator" actor has been a harsh critic of Trump, often getting into public disputes with the president on social media.

In early 2017, Trump said Schwarzenegger, who was then the host of "The Apprentice," has been a "total disaster" since the Austrian-born star took over the series. Trump said during the National Prayer Breakfast at the time that we should pray for a rise in ratings to which Schwarzenegger fired back, suggesting he and Trump should switch jobs “so people can finally sleep comfortably again.

Trump later tweeted that Schwarzenegger “did a really bad job as governor of California” and “is even worse” as the host of “The Apprentice.”

Shortly after their heated exchange, the 71-year-old told Men's Journal he wanted to "smash [Trump's] face into the table."

“I said, ‘Let’s sit on it for an hour,” Schwarzenegger told the magazine. “I called my assistant and said, ‘I think what we really should do is request a meeting a go back to New York. And then we just smash his face into the table.’”

“And then I think, ‘We can’t do that, either. I think I have to be above all of that and put him on the spot,’” he added.

Khloe Kardashian slams Twitter user’s claim Tristan Thompson left pregnant ex-girlfriend for her

Khloe Kardashian slammed a Twitter user's claim that Tristan Thompson left his pregnant ex-girlfriend for the reality star.

The incident began Sunday when Kardashian tweeted about giving birth to True Thompson — an event that was featured in the recent episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

“A birth is not something you can ‘redo’. Once you make that choice you can never get it back #KUWTK think big people,” the Good American founder tweeted.

A fan then responded by accusing Kardashian of stealing Thompson when the NBA player’s ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig, was six-months pregnant with their first child.

“Agreed. Jordan will never get that moment back where U made the birth of her & Tristan’s son all about YOU,” the Twitter user wrote. “U staged pics so everyone would see you with T at the Bel Air hotel a day after Jordy gave birth. U could have been classy & made it a private moment between parents.”

Kardashian quickly defended herself and pointed out inaccuracies in the claim.

“What are you even talking about. Their son was born December 12th these images were taken many months later. And baby girl, i have been wearing those rings way longer than I’ve known TT. Get your facts straight,” the reality star tweeted.

KHLOE KARDASHIAN: TRISTAN THOMPSON CHEATING SCANDAL WILL BE ‘VERY HARD TO RELIVE’

Kardashian also slammed another user in a since-deleted Instagram post, Us Weekly reported.

“PS he never left ANYONE for me,” Kardashian wrote in response to a user who said Thompson “left his pregnant girlfriend to be with” her.

Kardashian added, “I have said this before but as I have learned the truth isn’t as exciting as a lie. So the lie is what gets traction. The truth seems to get buried and ignored. Either way, it’s all love and peace over here.”

‘Sex and the City’ stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall feuded over this reason, says executive producer

The executive producer of "Sex and the City" has finally revealed the real story behind TV’s most explosive feud.

Kim Cattrall made headlines last year amid reports that she’d torpedoed plans for a third "Sex and the City" movie following failed contract negotiations, sparking disappointed responses from her former co-stars.

Just a few months later, she publicly lashed out at Sarah Jessica Parker after the actor sent condolences for the death of Cattrall’s brother.

“Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” Cattrall wrote in an Instagram post addressed to her former co-star. “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter’s Origins podcast, SATC writer and executive producer Michael Patrick King admitted the trouble between the franchise’s stars dates back to the beginning of the show.

As King explained, since Bradshaw was the biggest name when Season 1 first aired — she scored the biggest paycheck.

“The show doesn’t exist if Sarah Jessica wasn’t the blonde star of the show, that’s number one. Kim was not at the height of her career, Kristin was under her in terms of notability, Cynthia was a theater actor — and their contracts reflected that status,” he said.

“As the show progressed, the characters, everybody grew, it became a family. Kristin, Cynthia and Sarah Jessica became one group, and Kim never joined mentally.

“Kim fought and said, ‘I’m everyone’s favorite.’ … (Parker’s) name was contractually, legally, righteously, the only name on the poster due to the fact that she was a movie star in 1998 when the series started and she did a leap to do a show about sex on (HBO), the channel that did the fights, and it doesn’t matter how popular you are.

“I guess for Kim it didn’t matter how much the raise became if there was never parity, but there was never going to be parity.”

King also criticized Cattrall for concocting a “revisionist history” of her time working on the show.

“People do things, they make stuff up based on what they want to tell themselves,” he said.

“All I know is that show was spectacular for everyone involved. It was a spectacular success and you have to work very hard to make that 'Sex and the City' story be something that was not good for you, and for some reason, Kim thinks something happened to her on that show that was not good for her.”

In another episode of the podcast, Parker herself addressed the ongoing drama, insisting she wasn’t in a “catfight” with “anybody.”

“I’ve never publicly – ever – said anything unfriendly, unappreciative about Kim because that’s not how I feel about her,” the actor said, adding that reports they’d been fighting during their years together on the show were incorrect.

“We just couldn’t have functioned. I would’ve had stomach aches every day.”

Aaron Rodgers slammed by brother Jordan for not calling parents, missing ‘first step of compassion’ during California wildfires

Jordan Rodgers blasted his brother Aaron Wednesday on Twitter after the latter pledged to donate $1 million to the recovery efforts for the California wildfires.

The SEC Network analyst took exception to his brother's "act" accusing the Green Bay Packers quarterback of lacking compassion for his family.

AARON RODGERS OPENS UP ABOUT HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH DANICA PATRICK: 'WE'RE REALLY ATTRACTED TO EACH OTHER'

“PLEASE DONATE, SPREAD AWARENESS & SEND LOVE,” Jordan, 30, tweeted in response to Aaron's social media campaign video. “But when your own Mom is home alone during the fires, car packed ready to evacuate, & you miss the fundamental first step of compassion; calling your parents to make sure they are safe … Everything else just feels like an act.”

The Rodgers' family drama has been a public debacle since Jordan aired their dirty laundry during his appearance on Season 12 of "The Bachelorette" in 2016, revealing that Aaron had been estranged from his parents and rarely contacted them.

DANICA PATRICK CELEBRATES AARON RODGERS' CONTRACT WITH BUBBLY.

"Aaron still hasn’t been in contact with his family,” a source told Us Weekly in June 2017. “His mom, Darla, has reached out to him multiple times in the last few months, but hasn’t heard back from him.”

Ariana Grande slams Piers Morgan over nudity comments: ‘It’s our choice’

Ariana Grande had some strong words for Piers Morgan after the journalist launched a Twitter tirade on Wednesday against the U.K. girl group Little Mix and her mother, Joan Grande.

The feud started after Morgan criticized the promotional art for Little Mix’s upcoming album, “LM5,” calling the image a copy of a previous photo shoot done by the Dixie Chicks. “Hey @LittleMix – when are you going to admit you stole this idea from @dixiechicks?,” he wrote.

In response to the tweet, Joan Grande came to Little Mix’s defense before criticizing Morgan for his previous remarks about talk show host Ellen DeGeneres: “Honestly what is wrong with you @piersmorgan ? Didn’t your mother ever teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it! You came for @TheEllenShow yesterday which was disgraceful, she is an angel. @LittleMix today, did you ever hear of paying homage? And..well never mind.”

Morgan had previously called out double standards in Hollywood in response to a video montage of male celebrity bodies posted by DeGeneres in honor of International Men’s Day. In the tweet, Morgan calls DeGeneres’ video “the hypocrisy of modern feminism laid bare.”

Morgan quickly responded to Joan Grande, calling DeGeneres a hypocrite, and denouncing both Little Mix and Ariana Grande for using their nudity to sell albums.

Morgan’s tweet prompted a series of posts from Ariana Grande herself, during which the pop star praised DeGeneres before defending the use of her own sexuality and signing off with the title of her latest single, “thank u, next.”

“Ellen is an incredible & kind human being.. I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because i choose to.” Grande wrote. “Women can be sexual AND talented. naked and dignified. it’s OUR choice. & we will keep fighting til people understand. i say this w all due respect but thank u, next.”

Grande ended the conversation by calling out Morgan’s double standards by sharing his tweet of a semi-nude photo of himself in front of a fireplace. “When u do it it’s ok tho right?,” she wrote.
