Williams rewards himself 5.5 mn poundsJanuary 31st, 2009 - 1:51 pm ICT by IANS
London, Jan 31 (IANS) British pop star Robbie Williams has rewarded himself with a pay packet of 5.5 million pounds. Thesun.co.uk reports that Williams has paid himself for not doing anything the past year.
A source said: “Robbie has seen his earnings plunge by more than 65 million pounds in a year. Figures just released show he pulled in 3.7 million pounds last year compared to 69 million pounds the previous year. His profits slumped from 15.7 million pounds to just 632,000 pounds - and less than 500,000 pounds after tax.”
Williams’ people at EMI claim that there was a fall in his earning because he didn’t tour. But they said they were pleased with the results stating: “The primary risk to the company remains unchanged and is considered to be the constantly changing requirements of the artist’s target audience.”
Williams just moved back to Britain from Los Angeles and now lives in a 7 million pounds mansion in Wiltshire.
