I felt like a silly bugger. But that was him being humble,” Meagan said.”We had both been through pretty bad breakups; neither of us wanted to start anything new and didn’t want to hurt each other.”He said ‘I really want you in my life forever’ and we just became friends,” Meagan explained.Meagan is still to come to terms after the loss and said she still questions what Phillip saw in her that first night they met. She described Phillip as “the best friend anyone could ask for”.advertisement”He was always there when you needed him and that says a lot when someone is so famous and when he has so many other things going on. Whenever I needed him he was there,” Meagan said.”He was cheeky and funny and always made you laugh. He just had a genuine interest in you and invested time into our friendship. I still don’t know how I got so lucky to have him as a friend; obviously he saw something in me, she added.
