The pop superstars put an end to all the speculation...

Robbie Williams has revealed that he and Geri Halliwell‘s relationship is purely platonic, and said that they are just “two people who have been through the same thing”.

Today’s UK tabloids (August 18) report Robbie saying: “We are not girlfriend and we are not boyfriend and we are not in love. We are just two people that have been through the same thing and each understands what the other has been thinking. She doesn’t want to go out with me because I am too much of a slag.”

Meanwhile, an entire photographic exhibition is to be devoted to Williams this autumn. ‘Boy Band Rogue To World Domination’, opening at Proud Galleries in London on September 15 features 110 previously unseen pictures of the star.


They were all taken by NME snapper Hamish Brown, who was given unrestricted access to Williams from his first pre-‘Angels’ solo tour in 1997 right up the present.

The photos are also to be published in a book available through Vision On, also from September 15. Proceeds from sales are to be donated to Cancer Bacup, the charity of which the late Ian Dury, a close friend of Williams, was a patron.
