Robbie Williams reunited with Take That not for money
The 36-year-old singer - who quit the group in 1995, a year before they split, and refused to join with their comeback in 2005 - says working with Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange again leaves them worse off financially.
He told X magazine: "If it was financial the boys are doing themselves a disservice. They`ve got to split things five ways."
As well as keeping busy withTakeThat, Robbie is also believed to be planning two new solo albums, including another in the style of `Swing When You`re Winning`, which featured covers of popular big band, jazz-inspired songs.
However, the `Angels` hitmaker - who has sold over 50 million solo albums - recently insisted he wants his reunion withTakeThat to be long-term.
He said: "We`ve met on a level playing surface - the boys have come back and have done exceptionally well.
"People have had kids and you know, the edges for me have sort of rounded-off a little bit, and so have the boys. And it`s the feel-good factor that makes me want to keep coming back for more - or back for good!"
