Robbie Williams is quitting music to become a mechanic.
The 40-year-old singer – who has daughter Theodora, two, and son Charlton, six weeks, with his wife Ayda Field – has claimed he will give up his pop career in favour of a ”proper job” because he has grown tired of making music after almost 25 years.
He said: ”To be quite honest with you I’m getting a little bit bored of the pop star / rock star thing. I’ve been very, very lucky, I’ve had an amazing career, but I want to do something different.”
The ‘Rock DJ’ hitmaker released his eleventh studio album ‘Under the Radar Volume 1’ last week – at the same time as his former band Take That debuted at number one in the UK album chart with ‘III’ – but the record was ineligible to chart because it was released through his website.
Despite selling an estimated 140,000 copies of his record, the star suggested he would like to leave his career behind and move to Germany for his new job because he doesn’t think being a musician is appropriate for a father.
