John Stamos shared the heartbreaking latest text message sent to him by Bob Saget.
The actor was devastated by the death of his former Full House co-star back in January, and he recently took part in a Netflix tribute to the TV star in which he revealed that their last conversation was both emotional and light-hearted.
During the taping of the show, John said, “I’m going to read my last message from Bob. He said, “I love you so much. I’ll say that God gave me the brother I wanted.”
John told the audience that he responded by saying, “Well, you have a lot of ‘divine brothers’, but I’m first, right?” and Bob replied, “(John) Mayer is a wonderful friend, but he is more weather-friendly. You are always there, so you are number one.”
Musician John Mayer was among the audience at the taping of “Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute” and was seen laughing at the applause after the text exchange was revealed.
The special will debut on Netflix on Friday (10/06/22).
Bob, 65, was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida on January 9, and his death rocked Hollywood.
John, 58, tweeted: “I’m broken. I’m gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never have another friend like him. I love you so much, Bobby.”
The actor addressed the mourners at Bob’s funeral, and his heartfelt speech was published in the Los Angeles Times. In particular, he read: “The global ocean of love for him was incredible. While it was hard for me to look at tributes, stories, magazine covers, millions of social media posts, I feel like everyone gets it right, saying great things, remembering Bob in such wonderful ways.
“I just want him to know how much the world loved him when he was here. I spent many nights trying to convince him how loved he really was (or maybe it was the other way around – he was trying to convince me how loved he was). But that was just Bob’s bluster. He never thought that his death would have such an impact. This is the kind of reporting that speaks to someone who is genuinely connected to people, not for a moment, but for generations. .”
