Robbie Williams cancels X-Mas celebrations for ill motherDecember 23rd, 2008 - 8:49 pm ICT by IANS
London, Dec 23 (IANS) English singer Robbie Williams has put Christmas celebrations on hold, saying he will celebrate the festive season when his mother is discharged from hospital following a heart surgery.The “Angels” hit maker was shocked when his mother Jan underwent a four-hour bypass operation in Cheshire, north England, Sunday after doctors diagnosed her with a diseased artery, reports contactmusic.com.
The singer has been in touch with her by phone from his base in Los Angeles and has decided to forego the usual festive celebrations until she is well enough to join the family.
“We’ll be taking Christmas to her in hospital. Robbie has been speaking to mum every day… He will see her as soon as he can get back from America. We’ll all have Christmas dinner together when mum gets out of hospital,” said his sister Sally.
Jan is expected to be discharged next week.
