Charlotte Austin spoke with The Sunday Mirror about her 18-month romance with Robbie Williams. The New Zealand-born 26-year-old met the singer last year when she was working in the five-star Conrad Hotel next door to his Chelsea apartment. “It had been just a normal night hanging out at his place the first time we had sex,” Austin said. “Late in the evening we were sitting on the couch and he started to kiss me – it was just like with any other couple – we kissed and things started to get heated. Even though it was Robbie Williams, it still isn’t like a movie where people are ripping clothes off and I get carried to the bedroom. It was all very real, but very lovely – we just walked into the bedroom and proceeded to have serious hanky-panky. It wasn’t kinky, it was straight-forward, but he is very, very good at what he does – he knows how to treat a woman, and he likes to leave the lights on. It was all very sweet and it was the best sex I had ever had – not because it was Robbie Williams, but because he is so unselfish and just so lovely about it all. And stamina-wise – he has no problems at all.”
