Washington (ANI): Singer Robbie Williams is heartbroken after learning about his hairdresser friend's apparent sucide. Aaron Vickers, 25, was found hanging from a tree on Nov 30 in Swindon, England. The 'Angels' hitmaker and Vickers became friends after they met in Los Angeles.
Vickers and his partner rented a small wooden cabin on Williams' sprawling U.K. estate for two months earlier this year (09). Williams has since put the English mansion that was home to his tragic pal on the market.
"Robbie Williams would like to express his profound sadness at the news of Aaron Vickers' death, and sends his deepest condolences to Aaron's partner, his family and his friends," Contactmusic quoted Williams rep as saying in a statement. "Robbie did allow Aaron and his partner to stay in a property on his estate for a period of two months this spring," the rep added.
Williams has also dismissed reports that Vickers worked as his stylist. "Aaron was not employed by Robbie as his hairdresser and their acquaintance came about through mutual friends, Jonathan and Nikki Wilkes," the rep added.
