ROBBIE Williams has revealed an assassin was hired to kill him when he was at his peak.
The former Take That player made a shocking revelation, admitting he had never told the public about it.
“I have never, ever said this, but I have given me a contract to kill me. I’ve never said that publicly before,” Robbie told Mirror.
“It has disappeared. I have friends. Those are the unseen things that happen when you become famous. ”
Robbie, 47, also shared how a music supermarket affects his mental health.
“At one point in my life, I was ridiculously famous, Michael Jackson-style famous,” explains singer Angels.
“I became famous when I was 17 years old, started a boy group when I was 16 years old, a successful boy group. When I was 21, I left and then I had a solo career, selling 80 million albums, holding the record for most tickets sold in one day for a tour and blah, blah, blah…”
He added: “Ultimate popularity and extreme success come with anxiety, depression and mental illness.
“There are several levels of popularity and what effect it has on you. The first one is f**k .
“There are a few more things that I can’t remember but the fourth is acceptance. You object to privacy being taken from you and you oppose it by trying to be normal, trying to be normal but I will also be petty so people don’t hit you. Like, ‘I’m ad**khiad, don’t hurt me.’
“I want to go to all the normal places that I can’t go because people want to kill me. It took a while to gain acceptance. “
Robbie, who now lives in Los Angeles and has four children with wife Ayda Field, 42, described how his anxiety has been worsened by his popularity.
“I have anxiety and don’t like meeting strangers, but strangers want to see me, and I feel really uncomfortable about it. Thinking about that really worries me. It’s a trigger,” he said.
“Also, you have to be the mayor of the best town anyone has ever visited, or else people will say: ‘He’s one of those celebrities that’s ad**k.’ Actually, I hate being photographed.”
But it was while traveling in the US, trying to ‘break into’ there, that he realized he had the opportunity to live in a place no one knew about him.
“I came to America to promote an album,” he describes.
“And I was in Milwaukee doing a radio for eight at seven in the morning and I had millions in the bank and a huge following. I am depressed and worried. So I’d go around America doing all this stuff and I’d say, “Wait, all this fame is making me nervous and depressed and if I go to America I’ll be famous in Papua New Guinea if I was famous in America…’
“This perception is happening when I am traveling through America trying to disrupt America. ‘Why am I trying to break this down? Why don’t we go back there and live anonymously and have a good life’. “
He added: “So I moved there and turned down everything that I was offered in the United States.
“Basically, what happens is I live anonymously here and really enjoy it, then I try to go back to my hometown and remember that I’m not anonymous there and that makes me feel worried and depressed and then I moved back to America. . ”
