Why can’t these celebs just get along? The latest star being made to apologise is ex-Take Thatter Robbie Williams. The Stoke-born singer will have to say he’s sorry in court to former Take That manager Nigel Martin-Smith, who put the band together and is arguably to thank for putting the Robster on the map. The long-lasting feud, which began in 1993 when Martin-Smith successfully sued Robbie for walking out of the band, gathered pace when the star made claims in his song The 90s (from album Rudebox) that Martin-Smith ripped off Take That over tour payments. The song was rewritten and after an endless legal battle Rob’s lawyers are going to read a statement apologising. We always suspected Robbie was a bit of a sulker. It turns out that he could’ve cleared the whole thing up with a little chat, but chose not to. "I told Robbie I didn't want damages and that I would happily waive them if he would meet me face-to-face to chat about what has happened," explains Martin-Smith, “I said we should just be friends again. But he refused to meet me.” Surely a conversation is cheaper than the reported six-figure damages, Rob? Now that’s what we call stubborn.
