Her management said she was not injured in the blast, which came just after she finished her last song. My son loved the WWE; my daughter was captivated by Beyonce.

While it was well-intended, the 36-year-old reality star copped some major backlash with many labelling the tribute tacky and tasteless.

"Saffie was simply a lovely little girl in every aspect of the word".
