Shears Laughs Off Williams' 'Boyfriend' Joke

SCISSOR SISTERS frontman JAKE SHEARS has laughed off claims he is dating ROBBIE WILLIAMS, after the former TAKE THAT star joked about "their relationship" at last week's (09FEB05) BRIT AWARDS.

In an interview last week, the gay LAURA singer said, "There have been loads of (closet) gay bands. If you want me to name names, I will. Robbie Williams is a gay man. Just look at him."

Instead of getting offended by Shears claims, Williams paid tribute to "my boyfriend, Jake, from the Scissor Sisters" when he picked up the Brits 25 Best Song Award for his ballad ANGELS at the London ceremony on Wednesday.

Shears admits many people misunderstood Williams' joke and now believe the stars are a couple.

He explains, "It's been great to meet Robbie and we've been hanging out together, but we haven't been hanging out like that."

Shears is happily in love with an American student, gushing, "We've been together since June. It's my first real relationship and it's going great."
