Aussie favourite Ruby Rose – usually so guarded about her private world – has shared some devastating news with fans today.
The star, who has spoken of her pride in her sobriety after some difficult times in the past, has taken to Instagram to speak of the loss of a good friend who had been instrumental in her regaining control of her life.
‘Natalie... you were one of a kind. To wake to the news that to won't be lighting up my phone with ridiculous texts and I won't be laughing and pointing at you when you drop the trolley and erewhon in front of everyone and try to walk away like it wasn't you.... I'm defeated,’ the star wrote
‘I have all our last texts and conversations from a few weeks ago and you were as kind as you were funny. I adored you and I hope you know how much. I only knew you 5 years but you were one of my strengths in staying sober.
‘I looked up to you in many ways. You took me under your wing...I am hurting that you have been taken too soon. I am hurting that you were so up to date and proud on how far I've come and yet I don't think you knew how much I owe that to sobriety and friends I met like you along the way.’
‘There was and will only ever be one Natalie Hall. Many people are mourning today. You were more loved than I think you could fathom my lil sis.’
How sad. Our condolences to all affected.
