Singer checks in for prescription drugs addiction

Robbie Williams has checked into rehab.

The singer, who turned 33 today, has been admitted to a clinic in the US to be treated for his addiction to prescription drugs.

His spokeswoman Bryony Watts has confirmed the news.

Last September Robbie cancelled the Asian leg of his world tour because he was suffering from exhaustion.

At the time a statement from his management said: ‘It became clear that the stress and exhaustion from the Asian tour coming shortly after the end of the European dates would seriously impact on his health.’
