Robbie Williams' dad Pete battling Parkinson’s disease

Robbie Williams’ dad, Pete, has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

The Angels singer has opened up about fears for his family, explaining they have ‘a lot of issues’ at the moment.

And he has been struggling spending lockdown in LA, as he’s desperate to be by the 70-year-old’s side.

‘We’ve got a lot of family issues right now,’ he said according to the Mirror. ‘My dad has got Parkinson’s, my mother-in-law who I love dearly has got a very big illness. We can’t get to them. My dad is thousands of miles away.

‘My mum is just a year short of 80 and she’s in isolation and I can see the things whirling in her mind and her eyes going.’

The 46-year-old also explained there were points at the beginning of isolation where he felt he was ‘going into fear’.

Discussing the difficult times himself and wife Ayda Field have been through, he added: ‘But the difference between me now and the person I used to be… I saw it, thought “That’s interesting – tomorrow will be different”. And it was.’

Robbie’s words come after it was rumoured he would be reuniting with his Take That bandmates for a charity concert.

The Never Forget stars have allegedly secured a ‘huge undisclosed fee’ to perform together during lockdown, almost 30 years after the release of their first album, with the dad-of-four getting on board.

A source told The Sun that ‘hundreds and thousands of pounds’ are being spent to host the show that will see Take That perform from their homes. 

‘The amount of money involved to make this happen is hundreds of thousands of pounds,’ they claimed.

‘The gig will go out into people’s homes over the internet and each band member will be performing from their own homes so they won’t actually be together.

‘They can’t be physically reunited because of travel restrictions and corona rules but it is still them all coming together to perform their hits, something no one has seen in a long time.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Robbie’s reps for a comment.

'The Bachelor': Peter Weber's Exes Are All Shading Him on TikTok

Poor Peter Weber. The man went from being one of the most sought after eligible bachelors in the country to a Bachelor pariah after making a series of bad decisions. Not only did Weber end his engagement with Hannah Ann Sluss to get back together with his runner-up, Madison Prewett, but he broke up with Prewett as well just two days after announcing their new relationship. But he wasn’t done making questionable decisions quite yet. After receiving flack for being wishy-washy, Weber went back to Kelley Flanagan, another woman that he had dumped, and started hanging out with her.

Now, Weber’s exes are throwing him some much-deserved shade.

Peter Weber’s breakups

Weber had trouble making decisions throughout his time as the Bachelor. He let the opinions of others weigh too heavily in everything that he did, which ultimately resulted in him ending up alone. Just days after the “After the Final Rose” ceremony, Weber announced that he and Prewett were calling it quits, even though he risked everything, including his relationship with his mother, to be with her.

In his breakup announcement, he did mention all of the women who competed for his heart.

“I want to start by acknowledging the incredible group of women that I had the privilege of getting to know this season,” he wrote. “Thank you for coming on this journey with me. I learned so many lessons from all of you that I will carry with me. Madi, thank you for your patience and unconditional love. You’re the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves wholeheartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward.”

But ultimately, he announced that he was no longer with anyone.

Is Peter Weber dating anyone now?

After ending things with Prewett, Weber was spotted in Chicago spending time with Flanagan. Once the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic became more serious, Weber decided to quarantine with Flanagan, raising more than a few eyebrows. But, he insists that the two are not together.

“Are we dating? No,” he said on the Almost Famous podcast. “I’m the first person to admit that I’ve been through so much. The last thing I need to do is jump into another relationship. Kelley’s just someone that is just, honestly, there for me, and someone that I just really really appreciate. I’m trying to be there for her and we just get along really well. We have good chemistry. Who knows what the future holds. I’m not saying nothing could happen.”

The women shade Peter

People have been taking to TikTok to do dances and challenges to past the time during the quarantine. One of the most popular challenges is the #Don’tRush challenge in which women get glammed up and pass the makeup brush to their friends to do the same. Prewett, Mykenna Dorn, Kelsey Weier, Tammy Ly, Kiarra Norman, and Deandra Kanu of Weber’s season decided to make a TikTok video of their own.

However, when Prewett posted the video, things got a little shady. Ly reposted the video with the caption, “Featuring: women who are too good for Peter lol.”

And then when a fan commented and asked where Flanagan was, Prewett gave a snarky response.

“She’s with our ex lol,” she said.
