OMID Scobie's "party pal" Jodie Marsh has lashed out at the former showbiz journalist, branding him "toxic" for his latest royal book.
The Endgame author sparked outrage when two members of the Royal Family were named in a Dutch translation of his book on its release last month.
Scobie began his career on Heat magazine and was widely reported to have enjoyed nights out with Jodie prior to becoming “Meghan Markle’s cheerleader”.
In a scathing rant to The Sun, the former glamour model, 44, slammed Scobie, branding him "bang out of order" for his tales about the Royal Family.
She raged: "Please don't associate me with him – I don't like what he's doing to the Royals. I don't agree with it.
"I think it's bang out of order. I think he needs to just pipe down and shut up and let the Royals get on with their lives, because what he's doing is toxic and I am not his friend."

Early copies of Scobie's poison-filled Endgame published in the Netherlands suggested Princess Kate and King Charles were the two members of The Firm who had made remarks about the skin colour of Harry and Meghan's first child, Archie.
Scobie, 42, repeatedly denied naming the two royals in an early version of his bombshell book and refused to say sorry for the storm saying: “It’s not for me to apologise because I still want to know what’s happened."
He later fessed up, admitting an "early and uncleared text" was given to the publisher in the Netherlands so they could begin translations.
But translator Saskia Peeters claimed the version she received had the names of the royals in "black and white".

Scobie repeatedly insisted he did not write the names in the book and said a full investigation is underway into what happened.
Now editor-at-large at Harper’s Bazaar and a royal contributor at ABC News and Good Morning America, Scobie has been accused of being Meghan's “mouthpiece” – something he’s denied.
He first met the Duchess at the 2015 Toronto Fashion Week and was one of just three journalists invited to her final solo appearance as a working royal in the 1844 Room at Buckingham Palace, where he said they shared a “big farewell hug”.
In her Noughties heyday, Jodie was one of the biggest names on the nightclub scene, renowned for wearing next to nothing and partying most nights of the week.
But life couldn't be more different for her now, having shunned the limelight – and the booze – to run her animal sanctuary Fripps Farm in Great Dunmow, Essex.
Speaking to The Sun, Jodie claimed she doesn’t even remember clubbing with Scobie.
“I don't recognise him," she said.
“I mean, no offence, he looks a lot different now, so it's no wonder I don't recognise him.
"I don't drink anymore, and that's one of the reasons why, because I have black holes in my life and memory where I just don't remember where I was or who I was with.
“We're talking 20 years ago, when I was in a nightclub drunk and getting papped every night, falling out of nightclubs.
“I could have partied with anybody back then and I wouldn't remember it at all.”
Speaking about his days at Heat magazine, Scobie has claimed the "continued fascination" people have with his first job is "bizarre".
He wrote on X (formerly Twitter) earlier this year: "I worked at Heat magazine for 11 months after university (20 years ago!) and I quickly grew to hate it.”
