Robbie Williams to build football pitch in home

Gossips, Sport Comments

Robbie Williams is allegedy building an indoor football pitch worth 800,000 in his LA mansion according to UK newspaper-The Sun. The Rudebox singer, who is an avid football fan, recently bought a 5 million pound LA mansion with the sole intention of building a full size football pitch. According to the paper, the singer has become increasingly ‘paranoid’ about people spying on him whilst playing the game and opted for his own pitch.

He is also said to be ecstatic over his hero David Beckham’s move to LA and hopes that his indoor pitch will entice the legendary footballer into a kick about with Williams. One of Williams’ close friends told the Sun, ‘Football is more of an obsession than a hobby for him these days-but the Yanks think it’s a little eccentric to have one, let alone two pitches in your house’.

Robbie’s fag friends

Personal life Comments

Robbie Williams’ friends bring him cigarettes as a gift when they visit him in Los Angeles. The Stoke-On-Trent-born singer only smokes Silk Cut brand cigarettes but has difficulty buying them in America. Robbie said: “Silk Cut are hard to find in Los Angeles, so I get people to bring them out when they visit. I don’t like smoking anything else.”

Before Christmas, Robbie vowed to quit smoking in 2007. The ‘Angels’ singer, who smokes up to 60 cigarettes a day, insisted he was determined to beat his nicotine addiction after overcoming his problems with alcohol and drugs. He said: “I want to give up cigarettes for good in 2007. I may go and see a hypnotist, that seems like a good idea. I smoke loads and I really don’t want to anymore. But I’m terrified of giving up. I’m a fat bloke inside this body and the minute I stop smoking, I will put on weight.”

Are Robbie Williams fans too dangerous to have an official chat run on the star’s website?

Articles, Internet & technology Comments

The3Heroes herewith regret having sent a proposal for an official chatroom to Robbie Williams. Immediately upon receipt The3Heroes’ Ms Crämer was called by the now former director of Robbie Williams Com Ltd.

The director and her talked about dangers coming from fans and the closure of several chat rooms. At that time Ms Crämer was unaware about the extreme violence that was still going on within the Robbie Williams fan-scene. Unfortunately it is still violent. Ms Crämer regrets that she was unable to seeing the dangers coming from the Robbie Williams ‘fan-base as was foreseen by Robbie Williams Com Ltd.

Shortly after the conversation one fansite, that now no longer exists, ran into great controversy because of bestiality and other perversion in text form in the message board. Charges were pressed. According to a Düsseldorf police officer, the British based website could have been suspected of distribution of pornography, bestiality, and glorification of violence. Because of the server being in the UK nothing could be done.

In Germany, such a crime can be charged with 3 years in prison or a heavy fine. Only recently a Robbie Williams “fan” suggested to sing that loud with fellow fans that Robbie Williams shall suffer an acute hearing loss during his next tour. They disbelieve the terror alerts for the UK singer.

Ms Crämer’s former business partners are no longer part of The3Heroes and ended partnership in December 2005. Today The3Heroes offer PR and editorial services and live moderation. These services have nothing do with moderation of chats or message boards.

Likely “fans” damaged the car of Ms Crämer. Photography can be found on the The3Heroes website www.the3heroes.com.

Robbie Williams Linked To Much Younger “Buffy” Star

Gossips, Ladies Comments

Following in the footsteps of fellow musician Marilyn Manson, British pop star Robbie Williams has reportedly hooked up with a much younger actress. According to reports, Williams is dating “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” star Michelle Trachtenberg. The couple, who have a 13-year age difference, have been spotted around L.A. shopping spots such as Fred Segal.

London’s News Of The World newspaper, which broke the story, say that Williams’ lack of chart success in the U.S. has made him anonymous, which is helping the new relationship. A source told the publication, “Robbie really likes Michelle – he especially loves her sense of humor. They’re having a great time just hanging out. As we all know, Robbie doesn’t have a high celebrity profile in the States despite many attempts to launch his career over there. So as far as Michelle is concerned, she’s just spending time with a normal bloke from a place called Stoke. That’s just how Rob likes it.” Williams has previously been linked to Rod Stewart’s ex-wife Rachel Hunter.
