Awful!! We had no idea!!
Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell has come forward and admitted that after she left the girl group back in the day, she suffered from bulimia!!
Luckily for her, she had a surprising confidante who managed to convince her to seek treatment for the eating disorder: Robbie Williams!!
'I became really close to Robbie after leaving the Spice Girls and it was a very poignant friendship. I was lonely and felt he was the only person on the planet who could understand me because of his experiences with Take That. We understood each other. But I didn't really go out with him.
'I was worried I'd get fat. I would binge and then felt fatter and would make myself sick. It was awful. Robbie knew about my bulimia and he advised me to get help. He told me to go to rehab and that possibly saved my life. The bulimia would have got worse without it. I will always be grateful to him, always. I am happy and healthy now.'
She's right - she is very lucky she sought out treatment before the disease completely overtook her life!!
We commend her for being strong enough to talk about her struggle openly, and Robbie for being such a wonderful friend!!
Congratulations, bb! You look WONDERFUL!!
