Robbie Williams went to St. Barts, tested positive for COVID

Singer Robbie Williams has, unfortunately, contracted the coronavirus. He found out after taking his wife, Ayda, and four kids on holiday to St Bart’s in the Caribbean. There is some question, however, as to how he got the virus. Robbie and his family had been staying in Switzerland because, by Robbie’s own admission, he’s neurotic when it comes to things like illness. He was so worried about COVID that he forewent his Malibu, LA and London homes for the Swiss mountain tops to avoid it. He’d planned this Caribbean trip as an extension of his self-isolation, since St. Bart’s has only recorded 251 cases with one death as of last Tuesday. However, Robbie tested positive and is not only showing symptoms, but he is also quite sick, according to The Sun. So now he and the family have extended the stay so they can continue to quarantine at their villa.

Robbie Williams is reportedly quarantining at a £106,000-a-week villa in St. Barts with his family after contracting coronavirus.

The singer, 46, jetted out to the Caribbean at the end of last year with his wife Ayda Field, 41, and their children; Teddy, seven, Coco, 23 months, and sons Charlton, five, and Beau, six months.

The family are said to have had to extend their stay to self-isolate, after Robbie tested positive for the virus.

A source told The Sun: ‘Robbie’s been fairly sick.

‘He’s confined to the villa where he is staying with his family. It’s not exactly the worst place in the world to be quarantined, although he cannot go to the beach. He will have to remain in quarantine for up to 14 days.’

Like I said, I question where Robbie actually contracted the virus. Because he’s only been seen practicing precautions while out and about in St. Bart’s, wearing masks and remaining socially distant. However, Robbie did appear on the Strictly Come Dancing December 18 final, which it is believed the whole family returned to London to do. Following that, he appeared, in person, on Jonathan Ross’s show. December 20th London went into Tier 4 lockdown, (which, by the way, does not permit leisure travel) due to the surge of COVID cases in the area. So I wonder if Robbie picked the virus up in London but just didn’t test positive until he got to St. Barts, in which case, I really hope he didn’t spread it to any of his Caribbean hosts.

I hope Robbie recovers fully and quickly. There is no mention of anyone else in the family testing positive. I remember when Dwayne Johnson discussed getting COVID, he talked about how sick he and his wife were. Robbie must be suffering if the media feels the need to point it out. At the risk of victim blaming, I hope the Strictly final was worth it.

    I just don’t get how people still travel. That is exactly how the virus spread across the world. IMO, only very important and business related travels should be allowed world wide for a few weeks, it would make such a difference and would help getting vaccinations a bit ahead of the virus!

    • nemo says:

      ^^ THIS!
      it’s beyond irresponsible to leisure-travel in this chaotic period.

    • sa says:

      I completely agree. Unfortunately, a lot of people only see the irresponsibility of others, when they do the same thing, they do it responsibly. It’s very difficult to persuade people to act more responsibly when they are convinced they are already being super responsible.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Yeah, I don’t understand what part of “Keep your ass in the house” is confusing for people. There are people who have no choice about being out and working. Anyone else needs to be sticking close to home.

      I hope he recovers quickly, but right now, Robbie is the embodiment of “I should have kept my ass at home” in a person. And almost a year into this, there’s no excuse.

    • Anne Call says:

      Good news I unfollowed a bunch of people on Instagram that left LA and went on vacation during the holidays. Just so selfish and irresponsible.

    • serena says:

      Exactly, he was an idiot, people should travel only if it REALLY necessary (like for medical reasons or something like that).

  2. greenmonster says:

    Robbie has FOUR kids?

    Also, just stay home people. Don’t travel, not even to a place that has very few COVID cases, because YOU could be the one spreading the virus there.

  3. Izzy says:

    I don’t get what’s so hard to understand: If you travel, you exponentially increase your chances of exposure and this was already a virus that spread pretty easily before it even mutated. I have trouble mustering any sympathy for people who make these poor life choices. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. It’s a pandemic, if you don’t need to travel, you shouldn’t. He could’ve done the Strictly final remote.

  4. Fran says:

    So was he in London and then went (back) to Switzerland? That same Switzerland which just before Christmas ordered all travelers from the UK to stay the f*** put in their chalets or hotel rooms to prevent the spread of the mutation but most of them getting the hell out of there?

  5. Cee says:

    He was so paranoid he decided to fly to London for a show and then jetted off to the Caribbean, potentially exposing everyone around him and bringing the new mutation into an island that had gotten the virus under control? And people applaud him?
    Everyone traveling is being irresponsible. Your holidays abroad can wait another year!

  6. SarahCS says:

    Just a thought.

    Maybe, just maybe…


    (and if you consider your travel is ‘necessary’ I would really ponder the meaning of that word before you set off)

  7. emmy says:

    “It is a mystery where he got it.” followed by a list of places he went and presumably interacted with a number of people. Lord help us all.

  8. Doodle says:

    I was listening to a podcast that talks about the Q nutters and they played a series of interviews he has given. It’s unclear if he in in the Q cult completely, but I’m not surprised he got the virus after listening to the interviews.

    • Smices says:

      What podcast?

      • Andrea says:

        He and his wife have a podcast. No idea what episode this person is referring to. I’be actually never listened.

      • Lady2ndcoming says:

        @smices it might have been Q anon anonymous podcast. I remember them mentioning someone who got into Q after watching a video that Robbie recommend but I’m sorry I can’t remember the episode. I’ve been binging this podcast the last month so it all blends together

    • Cath says:

      I remember Robbie talking about UFO conspiracies ages ago in some interview. He was still living in LA back then. Before his marriage/kids. It sounded quite out there. I don’t keep up with him, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s sensitive for some conspiracy theories nowadays. And him jetting around is just stupid. Like come on dude. Be smarter.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Is it victim blaming to say he should have stayed home??? He should have followed basic precautions and government lockdowns? Well I guess I’m blaming him for that then. Traveling across the world to St. Barts is not being paranoid, it’s being selfish and lax.

  10. Hazel says:

    We plebs stay at home while celebs and “influencers” still jettting around without a care in the world.

  11. Lala11_7 says:

    I haven’t seen my Mama since June…and we’ve been in the house…ONLY going out for essentials…since March…

    And folks out here flying around like a DEADLY AIRBORNE PANDEMIC AIN’T OUT HERE…

    I can’t 🤬😭😡

  12. lucy2 says:

    I hope he recovers, and that the rest of his family stays well.

    That said, stay the F at home. He has like 4 homes listed there? Pick one and STAY THERE. They are all surely spacious and luxurious.
    I worry for the people of St. Barts, hopefully he didn’t infect anyone else there. A friend of mine lives on an island like that, and they were doing really well until they let some travelers back in, and bam, COVID cases again. Her spouse got it and is very, very slowly recovering.

  13. Lady Keller says:

    Just. Stop. Traveling.

    Unless it’s literally life or death why do you NEED to get on an airplane?

  14. Kristen says:

    He doesn’t seem all that paranoid if he’s traveling so much. If he’s sick now, he didn’t get it from being in London a month ago though – that’s well past even the longest incubation estimates.

  15. Marigold says:

    He was an ass to travel. That’s all.

  16. Sydney says:

    He chose to go back to London for some shows he didn’t NEED to be at with his family. Then said hey I deserve a vacation from vacationing and took a deadly virus to an island because he just had to go on vacation. *rolls eyes* Yes I’m victim blaming because this idiotic behavior is why we can’t get out from under this virus. He could’ve stayed in Switzerland.

  17. serena says:

    Maybe if he didn’t travel that much and just sat his ass at home, since he can afford that too, he would have prevented this.
