Robbie Williams’ neighbour claims star impersonated Robert Plant and blasted music by Led Zeppelin’s rivals to annoy Jimmy Page

The two stars have been involved in conflict over Williams' plans to build a gym and pool at his west London home

A neighbour of Robbie Williams and Jimmy Page has claimed the pop star blasted music by Led Zeppelin’s rivals and dressed up as frontman Robert Plant in a bid to annoy the band’s iconic guitarist.

The two musicians have been at odds with each other since Williams submitted plans to add a basement gym and swimming pool to his home in west London five years ago. Page was concerned the work could damage his Grade I-listed mansion and has objected to planning proposals on several occasions.

According to The Telegraph, a local resident called Johnny wrote to Kensington and Chelsea council to report Williams’ behaviour, after councillors had given him planning permission. “The committee may not have been aware that Robbie Williams has been playing loud ‘70s rock music on outside speakers when he views Jimmy Page outside his home,” the letter read.


“What’s been most annoying is that Mr Williams has played rock arch-rival bands Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, and Deep Purple. He obviously knows this upsets Mr Jimmy Page.”

It continued: “There have also been some reports that Robbie Williams has dressed up to imitate iconic Led Zeppelin frontman and lead singer Robert Plant.”

A spokesperson for Williams told the paper the claims were “a complete fabrication and nonsense.”

Last year, Williams apologised to Page for calling him “mentally ill”, having previously accused the rock icon of sitting in his car and recording workmen to test noise levels at the property.

Meanwhile, the pop star is set to perform in London at next year’s British Summer Time Hyde Park. He will appear on July 14. More acts are expected to be added to the line-up soon.
