Bob Saget’s final text to John Stamos threw a little shade at his other close pal John Mayer.
Stamos, 58, shared the exchange during Netflix’s “Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute.”
“I’m going to read my last text from Bob,” the “Full House” alum began, according to a teaser clip from the upcoming special. “It said, ‘I love you so much. I will say that God gave me the brother that I wanted.’”
Stamos said he responded, “Well, you have a lot of ‘God-given brothers,’ but I’m first, right?”
Saget replied, “Mayer’s an amazing friend, but he’s more fair-weather. You are always there, so you’re number one.”
Mayer, 44, was onstage as Stamos read the texts aloud – and appeared to take the messages in stride, clapping and laughing along with the audience.
Although Saget may have somewhat jokingly considered the “Your Body Is a Wonderland” singer a “fair-weather” friend, Mayer certainly made up for it after the comedian’s death.
Mayer paid for a private plane to fly Saget’s body home to California from Florida, where he passed away at age 65 of head trauma.
The “Gravity” crooner also designed a $55 sweatshirt – with proceeds going to Saget’s Scleroderma Research Foundation – and drove the “America’s Funniest Home Video” host’s car back home from Florida alongside comedian Jeff Ross.
For his part, Stamos delivered a toughing eulogy at Saget’s funeral.
The “Fuller House” alum reminisced on their decades-long friendship, sharing, “When I lost my parents, Bob was there for me like no other. He told dirty jokes and talked about himself as he hosted my dad’s funeral.
“He was there through divorces, deaths, despair and dark days. He was there through love, marriage, a child and bright times. He was my lifeline.”
Stamos and Saget played best friends Jesse Katsopolis and Danny Tanner, respectively, on “Full House” from 1987 to 1995.
“Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute” begins streaming June 10 on Netflix.
