Robbie Williams' wife Ayda opened up on tearful phone call that ended their relationship

Robbie Williams' wife Ayda opened up on tearful phone call that ended their relationship

Ayda Field revealed what it felt like losing her 'soulmate'

Warning: This article contains discussion of drug addiction which some readers may find distressing.

Robbie Williams' wife, Ayda Field, once opened up about the extremely emotional phone call that ended their relationship.

Last year, the couple, who married back in 2010 and share four children together, allowed fans an inside look into their lives during a four-part Netflix series.

The documentary - aptly titled Robbie Williams - promises ‘30 years of unseen footage’, with Netflix saying the programme will be ‘raw’, ‘honest’ and ‘real’.

It celebrates the 25th anniversary of Robbie's hugely successful solo career, which took off after he found fame as part of pop group Take That in the early 1990s.

The four-part series - which dropped last November - also delves into the star’s personal life to explore the ‘real human behind the salacious headlines’.

This includes 50-year-old Robbie’s difficult relationship with addiction, and how it impacted those around him, including wife Ayda, 45.

Remembering the first time she saw her partner taking drugs, Ayda said: "It was my entry into addiction."

She went on: "You wouldn't notice his personality change but all of a sudden, he would throw up watching TV."

Robbie admitted how, when his addiction grew harder to control, he thought he’d be better off dead.

"There was a sense of... It would be better if I passed away, I didn't care and it would be alright," he said candidly.

"For me to change I'd need to be dying, die or stop what you're doing."

Ayda recalled how Robbie called her in the early hours one morning to tell her that his team was sending him to rehab, a bombshell that happened shortly before his 33rd birthday.

She said: "I remember it was 2am and I called him and I was like, 'I am just getting on the highway' and he's like, 'Are you driving? Call me when you get home.'

"And he is like, 'I can't be in a relationship, I have to get better and I can't be with you. I have to break up with you."

Ayda said she felt ‘so crestfallen’, as he was her ‘soulmate and then he was gone’, adding: "And it was like, I understood it because I saw that he was unwell and I remember thinking, 'I just want you to get better'."

The pair later got back together and welcomed four children together.

Robbie Williams is currently available to stream on Netflix.
