Robbie Williams Won Libel Case

December 8, 2005 (2:53 am) GMT
Williams accepted substantial, undisclosed libel damages over false claims in a tabloid newspaper and two magazines that he was secretly homosexual

British pop singer has on Tuesday Dec 6, accepted undisclosed libel damages and apologies from publishers retracted allegations they had made in newspapers and magazines that he was secretly homosexual. Not attending the London's High Court for the settlement of his action against publishing companies MGN and Northern and Shell, Williams' lawyer said "Mr Williams is not, and has never been, homosexual."

As for everybody to know, the case actually was provoked by stories published last year which centered on the publication of Williams' book entitled "Feel." It is said that the book, an autobiographical account of Williams' life, was claimed as deceptive because it only covered his sexual relations with women when in reality the 31-year-old was a homosexual. Moreover, Shields revealed that in August 2004, MGN published a story headlined "Robbie's secret gay lover" on the front page of weekly British tabloid The People.

The latter article mentioned Williams as a gay and had engaged in casual homosexual encounters with strangers, listing certain examples. In fact, none of the allegations was true and Williams was not and never had been homosexual. "Accordingly, the book 'Feel' did not lie about his sexuality," Shields said.
