Robbie Williams: “I nearly died”

Robbie Williams has told the world that he was so dependant on painkillers he was 24 hours away from death. Opening up to The Sun, the former fat-dancer from Take That said; "I would do 20 Vicodin [painkiller tablets] in a night. I was on my way out. I might have been 24 hours away from dying. At the time you don't give a s**t if you pop your clogs. I must have been very, very close."

Robbie, who now lives in Los Angeles in order to get away from the pressures of the media / tax [delete where applicable], went on to describe how the addiction affected him; "I would have carried on, to be honest. You get to the point that far into your addiction, you're not bothered whether you live or die, because that's where it takes you."

Well, thank God you sorted your self out, ‘cos your new album ‘Reality Killed The Video Star’ won’t promote itself.
