Celebrity friends send supportive messages
Singer Beverley Knight was one of those who supported Robert in the answers.
She said, “I’m so sorry Robert. I don’t care about privileges … nobody, absolutely nobody likes a little rattle. “
Robert replied, “As you know, our phones are lifelines for friends and family (especially when blocked). For thousands of other victims, it means getting cut off or losing a fortune. Thank you for your love.”
Hear that. The ‘privilege’ is knowing that I can clear this up and replace it. As you know, our phones are a lifeline for friends and family (especially when locked). For thousands of other victims, it means getting cut off or losing a fortune. Thank you for your love.
