In a rare example of a pop star war of the words diss-fest, UK pop star Robbie Williams apologized to former Take That manager Nigel Martin-Smith on Wednesday and paid unspecified legal damages over song lyrics that suggested he had stolen money from the band.

Williams quit Take That in 1995 to pursue a solo career, and has since made several of "outrageous allegations" about his former manager.

"Robbie Williams wishes to make it clear to his fans, and the public at large, that he did not intend these lyrics to be taken at face value or as a serious statement by him of the views which he holds of Nigel Martin-Smith," his attorney said. "Specifically, Robbie Williams did not intend to allege that Nigel Martin-Smith has ever stolen any funds from Take That or anyone."

Williams had already been forced to re-record the offending lyrics from "The 90s," a track on his 2006 album Rudebox.

In addition to libel damages, Williams was pay Martin-Smith's legal costs.

Hey, at least no one got shot.
