"She was sweet and lovely," she said, describing their meet and greet. "Usually with those kind of meetings, it is like hi, air kiss, and a photo. She complimented me, my hair and outfit, and asked me how the trip was. It was really nice."

The pair were seated together in the front row for accessories brand, Coach, with the model having no idea just how ill the Hands to Myself singer had been.

"She actually revealed that [her kidney transplant] the day after I met her," Jesinta, 26, said. "Her friend had donated a kidney to her, because she has been unwell."
