Singer Apologizes for Lyric, Agrees To Pay Damages
British singer Robbie Williams, formerly with the band Take That, has now apologized to the former manager of the band over lyrics in the song "The 90s". The lyrics suggested that manager Nigel Martin-Smith had "stolen funds," according to a story on the BBC website. In a hearing in court Mr. Martin-Smith's attorney indicated that the lyrics for the song had been changed before it was included on a recent album release. Mr. Williams agreed to pay court costs, other fees, and damages, a sum which may reach nearly a million dollars U.S., according to a story from Sky News.
