News 07/09/2017

Robbie Williams has revealed that he is battling depression, anxiety and agoraphobia.

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times Magazinehe opened up about his depression saying his work has made an impact on his mental wellbeing.

“This job is really bad for my health. It’s going to kill me. Unless I view it in a different way... [Depression] sprints through my family. I don’t know if I’d be this mentally ill without fame.”

“I don’t think it would be as gross or as powerful if it hadn’t have been for fame. You get a magnifying glass in the shape of the world’s attention and your defects will obviously magnify too.”

"[Depression and anxiety] didn't exist when I was battling it - thankfully we're in brand new times now and it's talked about - it's not 'poopooed' any more. I felt more and more isolated because I was told to just get on with it."

Robbie said his wife, Ayda has helped him through his mental health issues.
