The feud that rocked the world has now ended. No, I’m not announcing that peace has finally been definitively established in the Middle East, but it’s nearly as groundbreaking of a truce, when you think about it. Robbie Williams has finally made up with former Take That bandmate, Gary Barlow. The two fell out over Williams’ departure from the boy band so many years ago, to strike out on a solo career. After Robbie left the group, he enjoyed wild success as a solo artist, while Take That faded away into obscurity. But now, it seems that all hard feelings have been left behind.
Barlow told GMTV: “Yes, we met. We had a great chat. He’s really well and we’re good buds again.
“It was the best meet-up we’ve had since 1996.”
That’s awesome, because really, when boy band members fight, we all lose. And here is Robbie, hard at work coaching his soccer team, the LA Vale. Don’t be fooled by the lounging around he’s doing whilst enjoying a cigarette, Robbie would be much happier on the field actually playing.
Find out what’s got Robbie laid up, and check out many more photos of him coaching his soccer team after the jump.
Unfortunately, for the British pop star, a series of injuries are keeping him from doing so.
He says: ” I’m beyond depressed. I’m not playing because of my knee. I’ve been told I’ll be out for one to three months.
“I’m beyond gutted. I’m devastated. And I’ve got a cracked rib. F***.”
This dude needs to be living in a plastic bubble. And always wear bubble-wrap jumpsuits. Actually, that sounds kind of cool, except that I know I’d be tempted to pop all of my clothing.
