Robbie Williams turns 50

The famous British singer Robbie Williams celebrates his 50th birthday on February 13. The artist periodically amazes the world not only with his songs but also with strange stories, loud pranks and"serious illnesses".

On the occasion of the artist's birthday, OBOZ.UA decided to recall the most interesting episodes from the British man's life that made him a star in the press. Robbie Williams has a reputation not only as a talented artist but also as a scandalous person who has survived courts, public condemnation, and slander for his sexuality.

UFO sighting

About five years ago, the media was stirred by the news of a star's "encounter" with alien life, which allegedly took place on Earth. The singer had been fascinated by the topic of UFOs since 2008 and even disappeared from the information space for a while to do more research.

According to the star, he and a group of like-minded people visited the mysterious Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, where they allegedly saw something that looked like an alien ship overhead.

"I have seen some strange things. I've experienced phenomena that I can't explain. Once I saw right above me, I could have hit it with a tennis ball, if I had one," the singer said, emphasizing that he had not consumed alcohol before that.

Middle finger for Russia

In 2018, Williams traveled to Russia to attend the opening of the World Cup, which led to merciless criticism from Ukrainians and foreigners who condemned the Kremlin for invading Ukraine.

However, already during the opening ceremony, the singer surprised the audience with a controversial act. He showed the camera his middle finger, which was seen by millions of viewers.

Opinions were divided as for how to treat this gesture: some thought that the this meant disdain for Russians, Robbie's girlfriend suggested that the singer was "addressing" haters, and the Daily Mail wrote that the middle finger was "an answer to Putin's pompous circus."

Serious illnesses

Around the same time, the artist announced that he might have had a serious illness. He assumed that he suffered from Asperger's syndrome or autism because he was experiencing memory problems.

William also did not rule out the possibility that he might suffer from a mental illness, adding that "everything is very complicated in his head." His diagnosed illnesses are no easier to deal with.
