ROBBIE Williams ditched Geri Halliwell after being told she was tipping off the Press about their relationship.

The star, 49, says he was told by a paparazzo – incorrectly – that she was the reason the pair were being trailed by snappers.

It came after camcorder footage of their 2000 holiday in the South of France emerged showing the happy pair on a yacht, wrestling and doing silly voices together.

Robbie, in his new four-part Netflix documentary, reveals he loved his time with the Spice Girl.

And last night he told The Sun: “Geri kindly gave me permission to use (the footage).

“That was a very important holiday for me because I was happy; because I wasn’t before and I wasn’t really for a long time after.

Only his paranoia and trust issues stopped their relationship from developing, he suggests.

He says: “It was a very confusing relationship, because she’s a girl and I’m a boy, we are very good friends trying to sort out the wreckage of the past.

“I just found her company very, very easy.

“There is a silliness.

“We really got on really well. It was fun.

“We were a little gang that were sharing a very magical moment, in a magical place.”

The couple were first linked shortly before the trip after she was seen leaving his home at 1am.

They were said to have shared a “deep connection” over their experiences of leaving their globally successful pop bands.
