TIKTOK ‘cult’ leader Robert Shinn boasted at a barbaric sermon at the church that he was responsible for Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry just days after the royal wedding.
Witnesses to bizarre rant by controversial Shekinah church leader Singh, owner of 7M Films, which manages popular TikTok dance group, say the pastor was responsible for the 2018 royal wedding told the US Sun exclusively.
Meghan’s 2013 film Random Encounters was produced by Shin’s Imaginating Pictures.
The controversial pastor’s name is also featured in the credits at the bottom of the film’s poster.
The flick was a box office flop and was widely panned by critics.
A church insider explained the bizarre speech Sinn sent to the congregation in the days after Prince Harry married the Duchess of Sussex.
“In a church sermon after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry married, Robert declared that his fortune in joining the royal family was due to his ties to the Shekinah Church.
“His failed production company created this fiasco, so he took credit for her marrying Harry.
Eyewitnesses to the sermon said it was not uncommon for Singh to confuse his commercial ventures with events within his church.
“Robert never separated his commercial ventures from the church. He always thought of them together.
“Here he says that Meghan and Harry’s marriage is a triumph for the Shekinah Church, but she had nothing to do with the church. She’s through his production company and this movie bombshell with Robert.” It was just loosely connected,” the insider added.
As previously reported exclusively by the US Sun, Singh is targeting a budding federal investigation into tax evasion allegations related to allegations that church donations were used for the pastor’s various business activities. It seems that.

The IRS is gathering additional information about this allegation, according to documents seen by The US Sun.
Although Singh is now under IRS surveillance, he has been embroiled in numerous lawsuits over the years, often brought by his former congregation.
TIKTOK star family concerns
The family of TikTok star Miranda Derrick has expressed concern about her involvement in 7M, the management company founded by Shin’s son Isaiah, 25.
Miranda’s sister Melanie and her parents Dean and Kelly Wilking tearfully denounced the church for allegedly cutting ties with Miranda in an Instagram Live video last month.
“They are not in control of their lives. Someone else is in control of their lives and they are all victims of that,” the Wilkings argued of 7M recruits. Did.
The Wilking family claims they became estranged from Miranda after she refused to go to her grandfather’s funeral in January 2021.
They say she later married her now-husband, James Derrick, without inviting her to the wedding or speaking to her.
Melanie, 22, said in a family video plea: We didn’t say anything because she always wanted her to come back.We didn’t want to embarrass her. ”
Melanie claims she also joined the church briefly, but was not invited to return after only missing one service, which she considered a “red flag”.
When asked if he had contacted authorities, Melanie said, “I don’t see any illegal activity other than total brainwashing, and I can’t prove it.
“So, unfortunately, everyone is an adult, so there’s nothing we can do about it.”
Shin and 7M vehemently deny the allegations, accusing the Wilkings of turning Miranda’s “private family affairs into a vulgar public scandal of click and influence.”
Singh and the Shekinah Church did not respond to requests for comment from the US Sun.
