Back in June her private messages between Sarah Exeter, a fashion blogger, were exposed.

Some accused her words of white privilege, and her television wedding show, I Do, Redo, was subsequently taken off the air.

Reports then circulated that Meghan responded to the controversy by cutting off Jessica as a friend.

A source told the MailOnline at the time: “Jessica has been calling Meghan non-stop and also calling up mutual friends to try and patch up their friendship.

“She’s devastated Meghan has turned her back on her at a time when she needs her most. But their friends have told her not to expect to hear back from Meghan because when she cuts someone off, she’s done for good – just like with her family.”

Many Instagram users shared their support for Jessica’s cryptic post.

One user commented: “Hard times always reveal true friends!!”

And another user urged: “You really find out who your true friends are at times like these. Hang in there Jess.”
