Robbie Williams Heads To Rehab

British pop star Robbie Williams has entered rehab in the United States for dependency on prescription drugs, his spokeswoman said Tuesday.

“Robbie Williams has today been admitted into a treatment center in America for his dependency on prescription drugs,” said spokeswoman Bryony Watts. “There will be no further comment on this matter.”

Watts didn’t identify the clinic where Williams, 33, is being treated.

American model Lisa d’Amato, who says she had a relationship with Williams, was recently quoted as saying the singer used antidepressants.

“It was clear he was struggling with his mind. He doesn’t drink, but he needs antidepressants to get him through the day. A lot of the time he seemed on edge,” d’Amato said.

Speaking as someone who has gone through 22 months of Seroxat withdrawal I can only say I wouldn’t wish it on anyone – and of course at the moment we don’t know which anti-depressant may be involved. I’m sure there’ll be more on this story in the coming days and weeks.

    Nolt that there’s all that much difference, but he might still be on Effexor, he was having problems with that a while back, about 2003. He missed a tablet (Effexor having an even faster onset of withdrawal than seroxat) and hit the bottom among other problems.

    Thanks SL – I’ve caught up with Zyprexa now…

    I think we need to know why Judge Weinstein changed his mind!
