Two years ago, when Robbie Williams turned 33, he was put on treatment at the first Cottonwood drug treatment clinic in Arizona.
By fateful coincidence, it was on this day in London that Take That band, in which Robbie had previously played, received the Brit Award for their comeback hit Patience.
“I methodically turned myself into a drug addict to annoy a group that I left 12 years ago,” admitted 35-year-old Robbie Williams in an interview with GQ magazine.
At the hospital, Williams spent only three weeks. “A dumb place, although it helped me a lot. Since then, I try not to take anything that would threaten my life directly, ”said the performer.
By repeating the sad experience of Robbie, by his own admission, pushed the fear of the scene. In order not to disgrace in front of a huge number of viewers, the singer began to use steroids. Finally, the singer was cracked by negative remarks about his album “Rudebox”. In one of the yellow newspapers, the main track of the album lauded the "worst song of all time."
“From such articles it can be very painful,” the musician admits.
The fact that Take That group at the same time released two triumphal albums at once also added fuel to the fire. Robbie was inactive, became depressed, began to gain weight and left for three years in the United States. “I really got to the handle then,” the singer said sacramentally.
Note that now the glory of Robbie slowly begins to gain momentum, and the singer himself is returning to a normal happy lifestyle.
