Robbie Williams has opened up about his battle with depression, revealing that he has used anti-depressants to ‘calm his demons’.
The ‘Angels’ BRIT-winner, who is currently touring in support of his new album ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show‘, was talking to the Radio Times when he revealed that he had a ‘weird summer’ where he couldn’t relate to anyone apart from his wife, Ayda Field.
“But it happens to coincide with finding a different medication … It’s called Brintellix,” he said. “I had a really weird summer. Just couldn’t connect with anybody, apart from my wife. I didn’t know how to talk to anybody, even people who are with me every day. I was isolated, in my head.”
He continued: “It was troublesome and sad. Then I tried this anti-depressant and things have changed. The demons are quiet.”
When speaking of his relationship with drugs and addiction nowadays, he added: “I’m not searching to do anything. But I definitely can’t drink. I definitely can’t do coke. I can’t do ecstasy. And I don’t fancy heroin.”
