Is this the beginning of a Robbie Williams and Nicole Scherzinger rivalry? It all began when Nicole insulted Gary Barlow by calling him ‘Gary Bore-low’. However, Williams is a friend and former band-mate of Barlow, and defended him against Nicole’s insults.
In an interview with the Sun’s TV magazine, he said, "Nicole keeps calling him ‘Gary Borelow’ – well she’s Nicole S**tsinger. Gary is the most talented out of the lot of them... the captain. He is doing a great job as head judge. He's funnier this season than the last, which is great because he's way more funny than me. I've still got my Gary Barlow crush. I love him to bits."
Robbie also added that he would like to join Take That again if given the opportunity, so it’s important that he stays on Gary’s good side. He recently told the Daily Star that he and his ex-bandmates would discuss the future and getting back together, saying, "We promised each other we would soon meet up for dinner and look through our agendas. It would be beautiful if I could do a bit of both. This doesn't seem impossible if we can plan it well."
It’s certainly not impossible, but they definitely have to make sure to stay away from Scherzinger if they want to avoid negative publicity.
