Robbie Williams has revealed that his father was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
The singer, 46, isolates at his Los Angeles home with wife Ayda Field and her four children.
Williams said he & # 39; fear & panic & # 39; has experienced while his 70-year-old father is in the United Kingdom.
He told the Mirror: & # 39; We currently have a lot of family problems. My dad has Parkinson's, my mother-in-law whom I love has a very big illness. We can't get to them. My father is thousands of miles away. "
Williams added: "My mother is just 80 years old and she is in isolation and I can see things in her mind and keep her eyes closed."
The X Factor judge, who has been open about his mental health difficulties, said he has learned to handle his problems in a healthier way.
He said, & # 39; I noticed at the beginning of & # 39; a lockdown that I would go in for fear. But the difference between me now and the person I once was … I saw it, thought & # 39; That's interesting – tomorrow will be different & # 39 ;. And it was. "
Former Take That star Williams is often joined on stage by his father Peter, who is also a singer.
