A neighbour of Robbie Williams and
Jimmy Page has
claimed the pop star blasted music by Led Zeppelin’s rivals
and dressed up as frontman Robert Plant in a bid to
annoy the band’s iconic guitarist.

The two musicians have been at odds with each other since
Williams submitted
plans to add a basement gym and swimming pool to his home in west
London five years ago
. Page was concerned the work could damage
his Grade I-listed mansion and has objected to planning proposals
on several occasions.

According to
The Telegraph
, a local resident called Johnny wrote to
Kensington and Chelsea council to report Williams’ behaviour,
after councillors had given him planning permission. “The
committee may not have been aware that Robbie Williams has been
playing loud ‘70s rock music on outside speakers when he views
Jimmy Page outside his home,” the letter read.

“What’s been most annoying is that Mr Williams has played
rock arch-rival bands Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, and Deep Purple.
He obviously knows this upsets Mr Jimmy Page.”

It continued: “There have also been some reports that Robbie
Williams has dressed up to imitate iconic Led Zeppelin frontman and
lead singer Robert Plant.”

A spokesperson for Williams told the paper the claims were “a
complete fabrication and nonsense.”

Last year,
Williams apologised to Page for calling him “mentally ill”
,
having previously accused the rock icon of sitting in his car and
recording workmen to test noise levels at the property.

Meanwhile,
the pop star is set to perform in London at next year’s British
Summer Time Hyde Park
. He will appear on July 14. More acts are
expected to be added to the line-up soon.
