LATEST: Pop star Robbie Williams is reportedly facing legal action from former Take That manager NIGEL MARTIN-SMITH after he launched a terrifying attack on the mogul in new track THE NINETIES.
The outspoken singer's shocking song, which features on his upcoming album RUDEBOX, detail how he has fantasised about gouging the pop mogul's eyes out, sniping, "Either you're a thief or you're s**t, which one will you admit to? Such an evil man, I used to fantasise about taking a Stanley knife and playing around with your eyes."
Williams, who rocketed to fame with the British boy band before going solo, claims Martin-Smith forced him to change his name, lose weight and even refused to pay the group for a successful European tour.
But after years of being slammed by the ANGELS singer, Martin-Smith has snapped, and has reportedly hired top libel and defamation lawyer QC ANDREW CALDECOTT to take care of matters.
An unnamed music executive tells British newspaper The Daily Mirror, "Robbie has called into question Nigel's honesty and ability as a manager when it's well-known that without him he wouldn't have a career in the first place. This has got to stop."
A source close to Martin-Smith adds, "He has always kept a dignified silence despite all of Robbie's remarks but he has overstepped the mark this time and Nigel is upset and angry."
