The multipartite entanglement structure for the ground states of two-dimensional (2D) topological phases is an interesting albeit not well-understood question. Utilizing the bulk-boundary correspondence, the calculation of tripartite entanglement in 2D topological phases can be reduced to that of the vertex state, defined by the boundary conditions at the interfaces between spatial regions. In this paper, we use the conformal interface technique to calculate entanglement measures in the vertex state, which include area-law terms, corner contributions, and topological pieces, and a possible additional order-one contribution. This explains our previous observation of the Markov gap h=c3ln2 in the three-vertex state, and generalizes this result to the p-vertex state, general rational conformal field theories, and more choices of subsystems. Finally, we support our prediction by numerical evidence, finding precise agreement.
