Robbie Williams quitting music to become mechanic

ROBBIE Williams is quitting music to become a mechanic.

The 40-year-old singer - who has daughter Theodora, two, and son Charlton, six weeks, with his wife Ayda Field - has claimed he will give up his pop career in favour of a "proper job" because he has grown tired of making music after almost 25 years.  

He said: "To be quite honest with you I'm getting a little bit bored of the pop star / rock star thing. I've been very, very lucky, I've had an amazing career, but I want to do something different."  

The 'Rock DJ' hitmaker released his eleventh studio album 'Under the Radar Volume 1' last week - at the same time as his former band Take That debuted at number one in the UK album chart with 'III' - but the record was ineligible to chart because it was released through his website.   

Despite selling an estimated 140,000 copies of his record, the star suggested he would like to leave his career behind and move to Germany for his new job because he doesn't think being a musician is appropriate for a father.  

Speaking in a YouTube video on his official channel, he explained: "I love you Germany; always have and I always will. I want to do something different that involves living with you and in you. For the first time in my life I want a job job, a proper job. I'm a daddy now and I feel as though it's only right that I have one."  

The 'Candy' crooner revealed he also considered becoming a professional soccer player when thinking of a new profession, but decided working with cars would be the best role for him so urged German mechanics to get in touch.  

He added: "And I've been thinking about my options about what my job job could be and I thought soccer in Germany maybe, and then no I'm too old ...and then I thought to myself, Germany's got amazing cars. Give me a call."
