Robbie Williams in swine flu scare – Daily Gossip

Lily Allen breaks down onstage, Ronnie Wood gets drunk, Jet and Wolfmother party in London – your music gossip stop

Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Robbie Williams fears he has swine flu. The singer raised the issue after he posted a blog on Robbiewilliams.com saying, “Off to the doctor’s to confirm if I have pig or not,” on Sunday (August 16). Since then, he has not posted any updates.

A spokesperson for Williams played down reports of swine flu and said the singer was simply being over-precautious ahead of promoting his new album ‘Reality Killed The Video Star’, which is out on November 9. “He was just being ultra careful by going to the doctor. He was shooting his video for the new single ‘Bodies’ last week and picked up a cold on the set” (The Sun).
