High hopes? Robbie Williams: If my daughter became an addict, I'd buy her the best drugs possible
The former Take That star says he 'knows what to do' if his daughter gets into drugs - and he's written her a song as a deterrent

Robbie Williams has claimed that if his daughter falls into drug addiction, he will buy her drugs - and take them with her.
The 39-year-old singer, who has battled addictions to alcohol as well as prescription and illegal drugs, said he’d ensure his now nine-month-old daughter Teddy had the “best drugs possible”.
“I doubt she’ll be like me. Touch wood, and follow that with a lot of love and a lot of luck, she won’t go there or have to go there,” he told an Australian magazine, seen by The Sun.
“If unfortunately that does happen, I’ll know what to do. Which is make sure she’s got the best drugs possible – and take them with her.”
The pop star has even written a song for Teddy based on his experiences with addiction.
“It goes, ‘Sit down, close the door I think it’s time you knew the score, why you feel weird,’” he said.
“One day you’ll be told about, how Daddy let his demons out, yeah he makes them scream and shout. So what better when you’re old enough, and you’re out on your own and stuff, if you start losing hold of love it’s because...
“Your uncle sells drugs, your cousin is a cutter, your grandma is a fluffer, your grandad’s in the gutter, your mother is a nutter, you’re a mad mother******.”
Williams lives with his wife Ayda Field in Los Angeles, but he recently declared his intention to move back to the UK as he doesn’t want to educate his daughter in Hollywood.
“They are idiots in LA schools,” he said. “They are a breed of idiots that only exist in Los Angeles and she would be surrounded by them. It’s not like one or two either. It’s not like the Big Brother house, where you pick the worst ones.
“I think kids there have a massive sense of entitlement, are dull and dumb. It means me coming back to the UK for good but I can live with that. It’s worth being pestered for her to have a good school.”
