He told the Mirror: “I’m concerned for her safety but I can enlist security for any of her work and appearances. We have the contacts for that – I used to run a club in London.
“Of course I worry but these are brainless morons. Anyone who does that [posts online] hasn’t got the balls to do anything.
“I don’t ever get tempted to respond, because why should I lower myself to their level? They’re idiots. People love to hate.”
