Robbie Williams seems to have inadvertently confessed to having romantic relationships with Kylie Minogue and Nicole Kidman in his youth.
The singer, 48, went on to reveal that he was “disappointed” in the Spinning Around singer, 54, and Moulin Rouge actress, 55, both of whom he has worked with musically and with whom he was rumored to be romantically linked .
When asked about the couple during an interview with French magazine Paris Match, he said: “Yes, well, we are repeatedly told that we must live in a monogamous relationship and that love will heal us and fill in the gaps.
“And that’s what I thought fame would do for me. But the reality was disappointing in both cases. I’m not saying these women were disappointing, but … the relationships you had at 20 aren’t public, mine are forever.”
When the interviewer informed Robbie that she was referring to his professional association with women, he was jokingly referring to Bill Clinton’s untrue denial of “sexual relations” with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
He replied, “Oh damn! I walked there all alone on slippery ground. Well, as Bill Clinton would say, I’ve never had a relationship with any of these women.”
Kylie and Robbie teamed up for a duet for their 2000 hit single Kids, and the Take That star even admitted he had a crush on her at the time, but dashed any hopes of romance by poking fun at her made when she undressed for the video.
The former X Factor judge previously collaborated with Nicole on the song “Somethin’ Stupid” in 2001.
He praised the Aussie star in 2018, calling her “pretty” and “incredibly gifted” while speaking to the Herald Sun.
The rock DJ hitmaker said: “We worked together, we sang together; Getting someone of Nicole’s caliber to sing with me was the biggest coup of the century.
“She is a lovely person, incredibly gifted and talented and I’m glad this moment happened.”
In 2014, the Big Little Lies producer spoke about working with Robbie during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
“He just asked me to do it, and I was between films and I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll try,'” Nicole said.
“I had just done Moulin Rouge! i was so shy And I had to do the harmonies, which was really hard for me. But he was really nice. and I did it in an hour,” she added.
Robbie has been married to actress Ayda Field, 43, since 2010 and they share children Theodora, 10, Charlton, seven, Colette, four, and Beau, two.
