December 08, 2005 02:53:59 GMT

British pop singer Robbie Williams has on Tuesday Dec 6, accepted undisclosed libel damages and apologies from publishers retracted allegations they had made in newspapers and magazines that he was secretly homosexual. Not attending the London's High Court for the settlement of his action against publishing companies MGN and Northern and Shell, Williams' lawyer said "Mr Williams is not, and has never been, homosexual."

As for everybody to know, the case actually was provoked by stories published last year which centered on the publication of Williams' book entitled "Feel." It is said that the book, an autobiographical account of Williams' life, was claimed as deceptive because it only covered his sexual relations with women when in reality the 31-year-old was a homosexual. Moreover, Shields revealed that in August 2004, MGN published a story headlined "Robbie's secret gay lover" on the front page of weekly British tabloid The People.
