Robbie Williams’ latest comments about his wife have caused a stir, as the ‘Candy’ singer admitted that he would rather sit and eat a tangerine than get intimate with his wife!
Now, Robbie is one of the United Kingdom’s greatest exports. Born in Stoke-on-Trent in the Midlands, he first rose to fame in the British boyband Take That. Having joined the band when he was just sixteen years old, the star garnered himself a reputation for being the bad boy of the group, culminating in his departure from the group in July 1995.
Flash forward fifteen years, and Robbie was back in the band, with Take That going on to perform at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics.
However, in the meantime, Robbie had been working on his own music. The forty-nine-year-old made some of the best pop hits of the last thirty years, including ‘Rock DJ’, ‘Angels’ and ‘Millenium’.
Aside from his legendary career, Robbie is known for being one of the biggest charmers of his generation. Despite this, the star has been with his wife, American actress Ayda Field, since they first met back in 2006. The pair married in 2010, and have 4 children together.
Robbie recently opened up to The Sun about certain intimate details in his and Ayda’s almost 2 decade long relationship, and what he had to say left some fans shocked.
The singer revealed that he had previously been on testosterone as a way to treat his depression, and that this boosted his libido. However, as a result of his previous struggles with addiction, Robbie came off the hormone, resulting in a dip in their, well, relations…
“No s** in a marriage is only a problem if you’re on different pages; if one person wants it, and the other doesn’t; if you have different expectations or requirements,” he shared.
He continued: “But really, everyone knows there is no s** after marriage. That’s just the way it is. I was on testosterone for a while but, because I’m an addict, that had to stop. I got these massive square shoulders and started to look like a doorman. It wasn’t a good look.
“But the s** we had when I was on testosterone was incredible; it was all the time. We were insatiable. It goes to show how into each other we really are, though, because when I was on it, we couldn’t take our hands off each other.”
He added: “I miss that. That was a fun period. Sometimes now, though, Ayda will turn to me on the sofa and say, ‘We should do s**,’ and I’m sitting there eating a tangerine and just sort of shrug. So, ya know, sometimes we try.”
Ayda agreed, adding: “Intimacy is the important, meaningful side of love. We’re happy.”
