'Crush Of All Crushes': Robbie Williams reveals how he messed up with 'could have been' Kylie Minogue
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams has been married to his wife Ayda Field for 12 years, but it would seem that he still carries his regrets of missed chances to this day. The former Take That member recently opened up about his time with Australian singer Kylie Minogue and how he messed up his chances with her because he was "too nervous" to be around her.
The singer said he did not know what to say to the 'In My Arms' singer, who was popularly deemed as "the crush of all crushes." Minogue and Williams had collaborated on the song 'Kids' two decades ago in 2002. He opened up about his time with her on BBC Radio’s 'Robbie Williams: My Life Thru A Lens', in which he also added that he felt like a teenager whenever he was with her and destroyed any chances he had with her, as per Daily Mail.

According to Daily Mail, when asked about his missed chance with the singer, he said, “I messed that up by being 13 whenever I was around her. It was like the girl from the year above me - 'I don't know how to speak to you!'" He added, "But she's my crush, my crush of all crushes.”
However, the fleeting possibility of a romance with the world-renowned singer did not keep Williams from moving on. He eventually met Field and the two got married in 2010. They have four children now, 10-year-old Teddy, eight-year-old Charlie, along with two other children by a surrogate mother, four-year-old Coco and two-year-old Beau.
Minogue as well, has happily moved on. The 'Aphrodite' singer, 54, is currently in a relationship with British GQ and GQ Style’s creative director Paul Solomons. They have been together since 2018. The couple got to know each other through mutual friends. Minogue opened up about her dynamic with him as well. According to a report by GoodTo, she said, "One day, we went to the bar and my friend said, 'Right, I’m calling him now.’ Two minutes later, Paul was on his way. I wasn’t looking glamorous; I was in a T-shirt and denims. He came and we talked, drank wine, laughed and got on.”
She added, "What I wanted was a good guy and he was a good guy. We swapped numbers, went on a date. And that was it."
