Robbie Williams has bought Joe Pesci a 170,000 Bentley - to make peace after their angry spat. The 'Angels' singer - who was reportedly left "terrified" by the actor's angry outburst after his friends blocked the actor's drive - has tried to heal the rift with the lavish gift. A source said: "Robbie moved to Los Angeles for a peaceful life and the thought of having a dispute with the neighbours doesn't appeal to him. He decided to splash his cash to show there are no hard feelings."
'Goodfellas' star Joe was enraged when Robbie's friends, who had gone to his Los Angeles home for a soccer match, parked in front of his drive. Joe, famous for playing violent and psychotic gangsters, threatened to start smashing windscreens with a golf club unless they were moved immediately. Robbie parked the brand new Bentley in Joe's driveway as a practical joke.
A source revealed: "When Joe saw that his drive was blocked again, he wasn't happy. He rushed down to confront Robbie - but obviously calmed down when he realised that the car was a gift to him." In return, the legendary actor reportedly gave Robbie a box of film props.
