Robbie Williams Snubbed By Timbaland Regrets Wealth Remark.... Robbie Williams bitterly regrets the moment he boasted of his wealth after signing a $156 million (£80 million) record contract, admitting it's the "most embarrassing thing" he's done.The British singer signed the four album deal with record label Emi in 2002 and became overly-excited in front of the world's press, shouting "I'm rich beyond my wildest dreams."He says, "I'm blessed to know that it (money) hasn't bought me happiness.I've had to look elsewhere for happiness and I've got it, but it's a difficult one to talk about."I've been thinking a lot about when I did the record signing for the contract. I remember saying, 'I'm rich beyond my wildest dreams.' "It was an absolutely stupid thing to say out loud. I've been thinking about that the last couple of days. It's the most embarrassing thing I've ever done."Meanwhile the British singer has confessed his rap career isn't going anywhere after hip-hop heavyweights Timbaland and Sway snubbed him.The Rudebox star, who earlier this month (Mar07) revealed he is in talks with rapper 50 Cent about a collaboration, attempted to contact Missy Elliot producer Timbaland to no avail.Williams, 33, says, "I tried to get in touch with Timbaland, but there was no joy back from anybody."

And as for London rapper Sway, he adds, "I was so disappointed because f**k what you think of me, but just as a human being to another human being, I sent him an email going 'I really f**king love this mate, it's dead funny, dead clever, it's really on it.' And then he slagged me off."
