Robbie Williams has told how he and his wife Ayda Field were threatened with being beheaded while on a UNICEF charity trip in 2010.
Speaking on his wife’s podcast ‘Postcards from the Edge’ Williams recalled the incident when the couple were working in the Caribbean after the 2010 earthquake.
Williams said: “I got threatened to be beheaded in Haiti. We were going out there to help.” “I was like, ‘should we go to the next street then?’ and looking back, it was scary.”
The earthquake left an estimated 250,000 people dead, while 1.5 million lost their homes.
Williams has preciously spoken about seeing the aftermath of the earthquake and explained: “As we walked around Jacmel on the first day, it’s hard to explain in words the massive and devastating impact that the earthquake clearly had – it’s a whole different league from what I had imagined I would see.
“It was almost unbelievable, like a movie set. Cars completely crushed – some still poking out from underneath the buildings that have fallen on top of them.”
