Robbie Williams sparks health worries by showing off skinny frame amid weight loss drug use
After admitting he has been on “something like” Ozempic, Robbie Williams has stunned fans by stripping off to reveal his ultra-skinny frame while getting a spray tan.
Robbie Williams has sparked worries for his health by stripping off to reveal his two stone weight loss – after he admitted to taking “something like” Ozempic.
The ex-Take That star, 49, posted a video on his Instagram showing in his underwear getting a spray tan – a day after he also admitted when asked about his eating disorders he has suffered from “all the ’rexias”.
Referring to the launch of his new documentary, his wife Ayda Field, 44, with whom the singer has four children, commented on the clip: “@robbiewilliams is taking his prep for the pop-up of his ‘Robbie Williams’ Netflix documentary tonight very seriously… or at least from the top half up #spraytan#bts #manglam. (PS I’m going to look pale next to him now.) AWxx.”
But Robbie’s fans weren’t fans of his appearance, with floods of them taking to the comments section to say he has “lost too much weight” and calling him “too skinny”.
Others expressed worries about his mental and physical health.
Robbie told The Sun on Wednesday (01.10.23) he had endured “all the ’rexias” when asked if he had been anorexic or bulimic.
He also told The Times at the weekend his estimated two stone weight loss has been helped along by “something like Ozempic”.
Robbie has spent years struggling with addictions to junk food and drugs and has now confessed his use of an appetite suppressant has led to him going from weighing 13st 13lb to 12st 1lb.
The performer joked to The Times he need the weight loss drug as he has been diagnosed with “type 2 self-loathing”.
Robbie – branded ‘Blobby Williams’ in the depths of his drug addiction and compulsive eating when he became a virtual hermit after he quit Take That – also told the publication about how being overweight is “shockingly catastrophic” for his mental health.
He said: “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, whose children are Teddy, 10, Charlie, eight, Coco, four, and Beau, three, added about watching back an upcoming Netflix documentary on his life and career: “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.”
