Robbie Williams Says Sorry For Controversial Spice Girls Sex Joke
Robbie Williams knows how to own up to a mistake after all, as he reportedly apologized for boasting he had sex with members of the Spice Girls. The ex-Take That vocalist supposedly made the apology when he guested on X-Factor Australia, revealed Melanie Brown, one of the British girl group's former members.
The Angels singer has made the sex joke a part of his regular concert routine. However, Brown has categorically denied she had an intimate affair with the English songwriter. In explaining her side on why she didn't go to bed with Robbie Williams, the ex-Spice Girl said they are actually good friends, according to Stuff. "He's a friend of mine... Yuck! He had been with my friends - I don't want sloppy seconds," she declared.
The "Back For Good" singer hogged the headlines when he seemed to confirm his disclosure that he allegedly took to bed at least three members of the Spice Girls - Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, and Melanie Chisholm.
However, the Brit awardee admitted that his sex joke may have "gotten out of hand." Robbie Williams recalled that during one of his tours, he introduced his "Back For Good" song by saying "'I am very fortunate to have been in Take That and four out of five of the Spice Girls."
"That was my intro to the song and it was a joke and the joke went too far," he added. In a TV interview, Melanie Brown bared that the "Old Before I Die" singer admitted he had liaisons with all of the Spice Girls, but told him that "I'm the only one you haven't," according to The Sun.
She said the multi-awarded artist explained that his joke was just taken out of context, but still, "he still got a slap on the wrist from me. It can be recalled that in 2004, Robbie Williams said: "I've only got one left to have had all of the Spice Girls."
