Robbie 'hated' by Chrissie Hynde
Perhaps 'hate' is a strong word, but according to the 37-year-old singer, that's exactly how Chrissie feels about him.
The grudge allegedly began over 16 years ago, when the outspoken Hynde approached Robbie to help put the finishing touches to a song she had been writing. Unfortunately, the equally outspoken Williams made a joke of the offer, and so the strangest rivalry in music was born.
Robbie told fans on his blog, Robbiewilliams.com: "Chrissie Hynde doesn't like me. I met her once at a New Year's Eve party when I was 21. It was very late in the morning and she said 'Do you want to come back to mine and finish a song I've been writing?'
"Then she said 'With no intercourse'. I said I'd come back but I didn't think much of the song title."
Robbie is currently keeping himself out of anymore trouble playing Sunderland's Stadium of Light tonight (27 July 2011) on Take That's Progress Tour.
