The Australian DJs who pranked Kate Middleton’s hospital, King Edward VII in London, which led to the suicide of one of the nurses, have reportedly been moved to a safe house following death threats.
Many are holding Mel Greig and Michael Christian responsible for the death of Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse who had transferred their prank call to Middleton’s ward.
According to Entertainmentwise, the DJs have been receiving protection from bodyguards since then, as they’ve been flooded with death threats.
Additionally, it’s said that approximately 10 members of the senior staff at the radio station have also been given protection, as well as 12 people getting moved to hotels. This is all reported to cost $75,000 a week.
As we previously reported, Greig and Christian broke their silence about the incident last week, saying “If we played any involvement in her death, then we’re very sorry for that and time will only tell.”
Christian also said “I’m gutted, shattered, heartbroken,” adding, “We’re still trying to get our heads around everything, trying to make sense with the situation.”
