'Candy' singer Robbie Williams says he feels former Take That bandmate Gary Barlow’s pain, following the tragic loss of his baby daughter.
Barlow’s wife Dawn gave birth to a stillborn baby named Poppy just last month (Aug. 12) and the singer cancelled work commitments to grieve.
However, he did make a public appearance recently, attending the GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London last week (Sept. 4) where 38-year-old Williams praised him for staying strong.
The 'Rudebox' hitmaker told The Sun,
''You know, Gaz (Barlow) is the most solid man I know, way more solid than me. He has the ability to put things in compartments. But this is the most testing thing he’s ever had to go through, I’m sure.''
''It’s just one of those things where we’ll see how it goes when I see him, but it’s obviously a very, very sad time for both him, Dawn and the kids. It’s the heaviest, heaviest thing, and, like I say, Gaz is so together. We’ll sit down and have a proper chat at some point but so far it hasn’t happened,'' he added.
Robbie, who met up with Barlow at the GQ prize-giving where they pair picked up top honours, admitted that it wasn’t the most appropriate place for a proper heart-to-heart.
Said Williams: ''We’re at an awards ceremony, it's not the place to talk about anything. It was very much surface stuff. But we shall be spending time together soon.'
