In one specific post from February 2015, Lander called Kraft “the great American icon.” The photo showed Kraft looking at the football field in Seattle before a game against the Seahawks. The photo is still live on Lander’s Instagram account.

“One of the most special moments I have ever captured. I could literally feel this man’s heart in the game and soul on the field. There are not words big enough to congratulate you. No one deserves it more than you and your team…both on and off the field. Every single person in your organization shares your enormous heart, kindness and strong work ethic.
We are all very blessed to be touched by your tremendous spirit, explosive love for life and extremely generous soul. Everyone — from all walks of life — who meets you knows they are in the presence of a unique and special force in the universe. Robert Kraft is truly the great American Icon of our time. They broke the mold when they made you! Thank you for letting me share part of the Journey,” Lander captioned the photo.

In addition to that post, Lander’s account still shows the following photo of the duo at the Vanity Fair Oscars party from 2016.

On Monday, February 25, Florida prosecutors confirmed that Robert Kraft will be charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution. The 77-year-old will face up to one year in jail if he is convicted of the two misdemeanor charges.
