Noel Brands Robbie as 'Lightweight' for Going to Rehab

Noel Gallagher mocked Robbie Williams for going into rehab.
Noel Gallagher has mocked Robbie Williams for checking into rehab - branding him a lightweight. The Oasis rocker - who along with his bandmates collected the prestigious Outstanding Contribution To Music award at last night's BRITs (14.02.07) - thinks it is pathetic Robbie is seeking help for an addiction to prescription drugs.

Speaking before the ceremony kicked off at London's Earls Court, Noel told Britain's Heart radio station: "If you take drugs you end up in rehab unless you're a f***ing rock like me and then you just give them up! We've all been there, but if you can't stand the heat." Robbie - who checked himself into The Meadows rehab centre on Tuesday (13.02.07), his 33rd birthday - has been feuding with Noel and his brother Liam since 2000, after Noel labelled the 'Angels' singer "the fat dancer from Take That". Robbie famously responded by branding the 39-year-old rocker a "mean-spirited dwarf" and challenging Liam - who is engaged to Robbie's ex-girlfriend Nicole Appleton - to a prize fight at that year's BRIT Awards. At the end of last year, Noel claimed Robbie was a sad, lonely recluse and said he believed his rival would eventually commit suicide because he is a "grossly unhappy person".
