Anti-gambling campaigners have blasted Robbie Williams for starting a poker site.
The Robbie Williams Poker community, to be launched online this year, says the main focus is “fun” but some of the games cost money.
Lib Dem MP Tessa Munt said the Take That singer, 37, should know all about addiction as he was once dependent on prescription drugs.
She added: “I’m outraged by this. It directly targets his fans, including children. The money he makes should go to addiction charities.”
Even Robbie’s own fans hit out, with one writing on his official website: “Taking advantage of vulnerable people for financial gain does not sit right with me.”
Another said on Facebook: “I thought Robbie understood addiction. Wonder how many families this will ruin?”
A spokesman for Robbie said the plan was still in the early stages. Robbiewilliamspoker.com added: “Our main focus is not money.”
