Robbie Williams has shared his reservations about raising his kids among the "entitled" children of LA.

Speaking to The Sun on Sundaythe 46-year-old, who currently lives in Beverley Hills with his wife Ayda Field and their four children –Teddy, seven, Charlton, five, Colette, aged one, and five-month-old Beau, explained,  "I didn't even know the word 'entitlement' until I got here".

"There are these kids with a sense of entitlement because of the place they were born and the parents they have and having the money that they have," the former Take That singer said. 

"I was like, 'I don't want my kids anywhere near these kids.' I'd never seen it in my life before and it literally made me slack jawed."

Williams explained that the realisation hit last year with his eldest daughter Teddy.

"It was like, 'oh no, what have we created?'" he said. "She's finding things normal that she shouldn't find normal.

"She will have a rude awakening at some point in her life."

The singer has previously opened up about how fatherhood renewed his purpose in life.

"Having kids is like an emotional atomic bomb. It's a reason to live and a reason to go to work. And this is the best job in the world, but it is a job," he told The Irish Times.

"I used to live on rock star hours, which was go to bed at three or four o'clock in the morning, and wake up in the afternoon.You quickly realise when you have a child you are not an insomniac but a bit lazy and prone to exaggeration."
