Robbie Williams’ heartbreak after ex Nicole Appleton’s ‘really sad’ abortion

Robbie Williams Netflix documentary teased in trailer

Robbie Williams was left heartbroken when his ex-fiancé Nicole Appleton became pregnant and made the difficult decision to have an abortion.

The Angels hitmaker, 49, began dating the All Saints singer, 48, in 1997 after meeting while filming BBC’s Top of the Pops.

A year later, their whirlwind romance went from strength to strength and Robbie proposed.

Soon after, Nicole became pregnant and Robbie was reportedly thrilled. However, she claimed that she was advised by her record company to terminate the pregnancy.

Nicole penned in her autobiography: “Robbie put his hand on my belly and told me, ‘This baby is saving my life’,” as he was struggling with his addictions to drink and drugs at the time.

After having the termination, Nicole said she “couldn’t believe what I had done”.

She added: “I wanted to kill myself. Afterwards, everyone pretended it hadn’t happened.”

Robbie later spoke out about the heartbreaking ordeal, telling the Daily Mail: “I was completely behind her…It was really sad though, it was really sad.”

The star, who now lives in LA, also said he understood why Nicole went public about the termination.

He added: “I was completely behind her…If there’s something that’s so deep-rooted within yourself that you feel it would feel better to you that you exorcised it and got it off your chest because secrets can make you sick and secrets can make you feel terrible… then I’m completely behind her.”

Robbie is now married to Ayda Field and they have four children. He recently took part in a four-part Netflix documentary which followed his rollercoaster life.

The programme covered all aspects of his life including troubled moments in his romantic life and his struggles with mental health and addiction.

The long-anticipated documentary is available to stream now.
