Robbie Williams Turns Down Fatherhood

Robbie Williams has said that he does not want to have children as he could not bear to see them suffer pain in their lives.

Hinting at his own insecurities and issues, the 32-year-old singer told the Big Issue that the pain they will go through "at some point in their lives" outweighs the positives in life.

"I don't believe that to be fulfilled you have to have kids," he said.

"What's the point of having kids? I can't guarantee that I won't father a child that won't be in pain because that kid's going to be in pain at some point in their life. I don't want to see that. It's too much."

Despite dating high-profile celebrities including Rachel Hunter and Nicole Appleton, Robbie has now admitted: "I don't know if I want to be in a relationship."

The Rudebox singer added that he may have had enough of Britain as well, saying: "It's time for Robbie to go away in peoples' minds - not to be in Britain for a bit."

But it's unlikely that if he does so he'll be off trying to conquer any other corners of the world, as he said: "There's not one country I want to break, there's not a stadium I want to play, there's not a film I want to be in."

Looks like he might be at a bit of a loose end
