Speaking to GQ, Williams said that he has a “long fucking list of enemies” and admitted that “Liam’s on the list” when asked about their beef, which dates back to the 2000 BRIT Awards. The pair were briefly friends in the 90s following Williams’ spilt from Take That.
At the Brit Awards in 2000, Williams – who was picking up the trophy for Best Video – asked the crowd: “Would anybody like to see me fight Liam? Liam: £100,000 of your money, £100,000 of mine… we’ll get in the ring and have a fight. Now are you gonna do it or pussy out, you fucking wimp?”
