It was a brutal blow for the former working Royals as the music streaming site has just culled Meg's "declining" podcast Archetypes.
Sources tell SundayStar.co.uk that people had been "switching off" for months and Markle had virtually "no audience".
Now senior bosses at Spotify are shedding more light on Harry and Meghan's short-lived time behind the microphone.
"The f***ing grifters," head of podcast innovation and monetization Bill Simmons called the pair on his podcast on Friday.
"That's the podcast we should have launched with them," he added.
"I've got to get drunk one night and tell the story of the Zoom I had with Harry to try and help him with a podcast idea."
Simmons concluded: "It's one of my best stories."
A joint statement released by Harry and Meghan's audio company and Spotify said they had "mutually agreed to part ways".
But insiders insist the company was "not satisfied with the couple's productivity" – potentially cutting their £20million pay packet.
This isn't the first time Bill has spoken about Harry and Meghan, last January he sensationally said he found the Duke "embarrassing".
"Shoot this guy to the sun," he said, per The Big Lead. "I'm so tired of this guy.
"What does he bring to the table? He just whines about s*** and keeps giving interviews. Who gives a s***? Who cares about your life?
"You weren't even the favourite son. You live in f****** Montecito and you just sell documentaries and podcasts.
"Nobody cares what you have to say about anything unless you talk about the royal family and you just complain about them."
