Honest: Delving beyond the humour, Robbie explained that being overweight is ‘shockingly catastrophic’ for his mental health
Robbie told The Times: ‘Babe, I’m on Ozempic…Well, something like Ozempic. It’s like a Christmas miracle. I’ve gone from 13st 13lb to 12st 1lb.
‘And I need it, medically. I’ve been diagnosed with type 2 self-loathing.
‘It’s shockingly catastrophic to my mental health to be bigger. My inner voice talks to me like Katie Hopkins talks about fat people. It’s maddening.’
Robbie Williams reflected on his mental health battles in the latest trailer for his upcoming Netflix docu-series.
A dropped ahead of the four-part show’s release on November 8, which will combine never-before-seen footage of Robbie with new interviews.
Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of his solo career, the series will give an intimate look at his never-before-seen personal archive spanning 30 years.
In the new trailer he began by reflecting on his journey and career before candidly telling how things started to get difficult, resulting in a ‘nervous, mental breakdown in front of thousands of people’.
Robbie – who shares Teddy, 10, Charlie, eight, Coco, four, and Beau, three, with his wife Ayda – mused: ‘It’s astounding what’s happened in my life. But the past has me in a headlock.
‘Something has to give. You’re only supposed to do this at the pearly gates with Saint Peter this looking back at your life.’
He added of being thrust into the spotlight at a young age: ‘When I joined Take That I was 16 it was insane. I was the centre of the pop culture world.
‘I felt like I was giving more and more of myself away to the point where you don’t recognise yourself any more.
‘Being in the spotlight you can’t trust anybody. I was having a nervous, mental breakdown in front of thousands of people.
‘The thing that would destroy me has also made me successful. Touch the fire, push when it says pull and see if I can live. I don’t know how easy it is for people to get to know me.’
Robbie has been very open about his ongoing battle with mental illness and his history of depression and anxiety. And when his fame was at an all-time high, the pop star hit his lowest point.
From 2006 to 2009, Williams battled agoraphobia. The social anxiety disorder left him housebound for three years.
He has previously revealed he went into rehab in 2007 after taking speed, acid, heroin, cocaine and ‘heart-stopping’ amounts of prescription drugs.
