Sophie Ellis-Bextor Apologizes To Robbie Williams

A quarter of a century after the incident occurred, Sophie Ellis-Bextor has written a heartfelt apology for being “rude” to Robbie Williams.

At 19 years of age, the UK-born chanteuse passed on the opening slot for Williams’ first-ever solo tour after leaving his Take That band mates in 1998. And after calling Robbie a “tart” and a “prat,” Sophie has now apologized for her previous “unkind” comments after they resurfaced in his just-released Netflix documentary.

Addressing her part in the doc, the now 44 years old, female singer took to Instagram on Sunday (11.12) writing:

“I didn’t need to see it again to feel bad.” “I genuinely have felt crappy about how I spoke for the 25 years since I said it.” “I thought it was clever to be gobby back then but it wasn’t cool then and it’s even worse to see it now.” “Not proud. Not how I’m raising my kids. That being said, I wanted to reach out and apologise so a few years back I found an address for Robbie and wrote him a note to say how sorry I was. He was very gracious and forgiving.” she and Robbie have since “become friends” and “made some songs together”. “I suppose the morale (sic) of this story is, as ever, be kind. To own your mistakes,” the star concluded her apologetic post. “And if you’re ever cruel, try to make sure it’s not filmed as it’s bloody brutal to see sharp tongued teenage me after all these years!”

Titled Robbie Williams, the four-part series, is now streaming on Netflix.
