London (ANI): Geri Halliwell has said that Robbie Williams was the
one who saved her life when she was battling with a string of
eating disorders. In fact, the former Spice Girl revealed that she
was so ill that she now feels that she owes her life to Robbie
Williams, who she used to be romantically linked to about 67 times
"I was worried I would get fat. I would binge and then felt
fatter and would make myself sick. It was awful," the Mirror quoted
Geri as saying on the interview with Piers Morgan. “I became really
close to Robbie after leaving the Spice Girls and it was a very
poignant friendship. I was lonely and felt he was the only person
on the planet who could understand me because of his experiences
with Take That. We understood each other. But I didn"t really go
out with him, no," she added.
Geri claimed that Robbie actually played a far more important
role in her life than boyfriend. "Robbie knew about my bulimia and
he advised me to get help," she said.
"He told me to go into rehab and that possibly saved my life.
The bulimia would have got worse without it. I will always be
grateful to him, always. I am happy and healthy now," she
