“I haven’t been tested but I know I have it, 100% have it,” said the singer.

Sam said they then isolated themselves in his LA mansion, according to government directives.
“So, me and her, we just isolated for three weeks because we knew it.” It was clear. Because I have a nan and stuff, so we didn’t want to risk anything. I had it about two weeks before the UK really hit. .
“Well, I think I got it. I don’t know 100%, but I got it, and then like everyone was really safe, that’s when I got over it, luckily. “
The singer’s fans jumped on their defense after being trolled for posting a photo of their fusion during their forties.
One wrote, “The veteran who raises £££ for the NHS is incredible and rightfully applauded.
“Using his exploit to troll Sam Smith and make fun of their suffering is shameful. A wealthy and successful person also knows the full spectrum of HD problems … Do you remember #bekind? “
