Instagram’s failure comes after Phoebe was accosted by former Married At First Sight star Nasser Sultan during Australian Fashion Week in Sydney earlier this month.

Nasser, 55, was photographed harassing the ex-wife of NRL star Sam Burgess in the front row of the Oroton showcase at Carriageworks on May 10.

An apologetic Nasser later told Daily Mail Australia he was ‘really embarrassed’ by his behavior around Phoebe, but denied barging into the show or stealing someone’s seat, as reported previously.

‘[The incident with security] really embarrassed me. I felt like an af**kwit… but I didn’t take anyone’s place or sneak in,” the former music promoter said.

“I was invited to this show, saw Phoebe come over to say hello. Why can’t you say hello to people these days?

“Security said I stole Kate Waterhouse’s seat. I didn’t. I stood there for a few seconds taking a photo with Phoebe, then went back to my seat.

He added: “They said I was a parasite and the designers didn’t want me on their shows…that’s not true.” I have been invited to many shows.

‘I’ve been going there for years. I have no shame in sitting in the back row. I’m happy to be here.

During the Oroton showcase, Nasser had briefly slipped into the seat of racing royalty Kate Waterhouse when she walked away and tugged on Phoebe’s designer coat to try and get her attention.

However, the mother-of-two turned her back on Nasser as he repeatedly asked for a photo and tried to strike up a conversation.

Nasser “eventually gave up and left,” a viewer told Daily Mail Australia.

But he buttoned up Phoebe again after the show, and she politely accepted a photo before waving him away.
