据英国媒体报道，原定在伦敦奥运会闭幕演出中献唱的英国歌手罗比•威廉姆斯因演出日期与妻子预产期冲突而决定退出。据悉，罗比•威廉姆斯原本计划在闭幕演出中演唱英国摇滚老将大卫•鲍威1971年的名曲《Life on Mars?》，还有消息称他有可能跟之前所在的乐队Take That合唱。针对上述报道，伦敦奥运会发言人表示：“我们想给大家一个惊喜，所有安排均对外保密。对于各类传言，我们不予置评。”
Robbie Williams has reportedly pulled out of the London Olympics Closing Ceremony.
The Take That star was set to perform David Bowie’s 1971 hit Life on Mars? during the August 12 finale, however he has cancelled his appearance as the date clashes with his pregnant wife's due date, reports The Mirror.
A source told the newspaper: "Robbie quit a few weeks ago. He had been lined up to perform solo material and it was hoped he would sing with Take That.
“However, just as rehearsals were kicking off, he said there was an unfortunate clash of dates."
Other artists rumoured to be performing at the closing ceremony include George Michael, The Who, Emeli Sande and Take That.
However, a spokeswoman for London 2012 has said: “We want our ceremonies to be a surprise. We’ve kept all acts that might be taking part under wraps.
"There’s a lot of speculation flying about, but we’re not commenting on it.”
Last week, Williams shared his father-to-be joy with fans by posting a picture of his pregnant wife's baby bump online.

He wrote "My two girls" on a message accompanying the photo.
Williams announced that his wife of almost two years was pregnant in March, later revealing that they were having a girl.
