Half Ton Son Billy Robbins : Robbins Half Ton Son (photos)

Billy Robbins is the World’s Heaviest Teenager. Robbins weighs 60 stone, which is 840 pounds, which is near to half a ton. Robbins is sometimes nicknamed as World’s Half Ton Teen. (One stone is 14 pounds. 1 ton is 2000 pounds.)

Robbins was restricted in movements and housebound for the past 3 years. Robbins forced himself to lose weight because his doctors warned him about the health risks. The Half Ton Teen’s mother is Barbara Robbins, who loves him so much that she waits on him hand and foot. The World’s Heaviest Teenager loves hamburgers, pizza, cola, chips, donuts and fattening cheese.

How did Billy Robbins get to be so heavy? His mother dotted on him hand and foot. She lost a baby before Billy was born. Mrs Robbins felt guilty and fed Billy. She lavished food, attention and love on him to make up for her guilt of losing her child. Even after Billy became large in size, she did not stop. She could not stop herself and continued to feed Billy large amounts of food.

UK’s Channel 4 produced a documentary on Half Ton Son to feature Billy Robbin and his battle with the bulge.

Billy Robbins had 1 operation to remove 5 stone of flesh. Robbins changed his diet and sedentary life style. He lost 20 stone. Robbins had a surgery to fit him with a gastric band. Robbins left the hospital weighing 35 stone.

    Billy’s mother is such a hypocrite. On the one hand she says that Billy needs to get it together,but on the other hand she babies him and puts constant treats in his face. How is Billy suppose to be responsible when his mother does everything for him.She probably feels badly that he is so heavy , but he wouldn’t be if she just left him alone once in awhile. She is the very cause of what she is trying to prevent from happening. How can she be so blind to her treatment of Billy. She has got some major mental issues and she should not be left to help Billy with his treatment. What a piece of work. Run for your life Billy,and get as far away from her until she gets therapy.

  2. is billy robbins still big?

    I admit I am coming in on the whole conversations a bit late. Well, a year late. But I find it the there is much animosity between the UK and the US. And it is obviously not one sided. When I saw this episode I must admit I was disturbed. At such a young (an supposed to be active) age Billy grew to be so big. Yes there are genetics that make it far too easy for some to gain, gain, gain. But how does that stop one from being active? I see many parents where I live(and please no wise cracks from the peanut gallery) that should honestly receive 30 lashings for what they do to their children. I saw a toddler that looked to be about the same age as my son(3) and I swear she was probably around 80 lbs. I didn’t look down upon her(how could I) but wanted to smack the living hell out of her mother. That should be considered child abuse if not already. I view that as child endangerment. What Billy’s mother was doing should have been negligent homicide if Billy had died. Anyway, thats my opinion.(Thankfully I am allowed to have one every now and again.) By the way, I am 23, live and was born in the US. Not everyones an idiot.

    So he lost a few pounds, so what, the damage is already done! His heart has suffered all it can and the rest of his organs are on the edge as well. And once he gets back home NOTHING WILL CHANGE! His ‘mommy’ will continue in her quest to kill him, plain & simple! Some people should NOT be parents.

  5. KRISTIN

    Wow! I didn’t realize how much animosity Brits have for Americans, at least here. Is this the attitude most Brits have? Aren’t there severely obese people in the UK? Why do you hate us so much?

    All the people with nasty comments should thank God that their baby brother did not die, leaving a devastated and mentally unstable mother to care for them. Billy grew up like this; he had no choice. It’s easy to say but he is a man. But he had no chance to mentally become a man, even if he is 19 years old. We all have our issues and problems, but many of them aren’t as visible as Billy’s. I pray he is ok, and he has decades of time left to spend with his mother- when she is helped and able to move beyond this whole issue. I suspect the people who are so horrible and judgmental have lots of things to hide, and they affect others, not just themselves.

    Number 42 Judy, simply go to hell you stupid piece of Crap!!!

    Where is Billy now? Any pics?

  9. Bemused

    Some of these comments are truly disgusting. Whether you find Billy’s appearance and weight issue repulsive (or in some strange cases…attractive!!!!), there is no getting away from the fact this is a very sad, depressed human being who is genuinely suffering. Do any of you honestly believe he enjoy’s living the way he does(or rather did)? Is it only me who saw how bloody miserable he was????
    It’s so easy for some of you to judge isn’t it, because your obviously perfect and are employed by Model’s One!! Somehow I don’t think so!
    We all have issue’s, it’s just most of us don’t have to endure them being aired to half the nation. That in itself took guts and yet he gets no respect for that, nor for also his graphically highlighting an issue that effects a third of young people in the US today…obesity!
    Some of you really need to grow up and instead of slagging this bloke off, open your minds up by a few centimetre’s and see the good this programme could do. I for one wish him well and I hope he sorts himself out.

  10. Skinny Billy lover

    Billy are already sexy enought to date, is your ass already round instead of looking like a pancake?
    Wanne date skinny me? But first get rid of your grazy mother she is and I repeat my self she is a cunt!!!!!!!!!!BIG time…..

    I like how this turned into an American vs British arguement rather than focusing on Billy Robbins and the state that himself and his mother got him into.

    Get over it. America and Britain are not that different, you just get these people who have a one-minded opinion on their country. Grow up, and accept our differences rather than going “Hurr AMERICA” or “Hurr BRITAIN”. As someone once said “America and Britain are like two old people, sure we argue a lot, but when someone else tries to get involved, we whack them with our canes and send them off.”

    As for Billy, I felt sorry for him. True, it was his own fault and his mothers but no kid should ever be in that state where he can’t clean up after himself and not feel sick after eating 8000 calories a day. I would love to know how he is doing, but I can’t find any pictures of him currently.

    Peace out.

    @ LOL@all
    “what about all the lives that were lost waiting on America to decide it may just get involved? Go read a history book ”

    What about all the lives that were lost waiting on ENGLAND to decide it may just get involved?

  13. Goo

    Well done Billy! You people are so sad! I belive that most of you does not have any emotions, especially EMPATHY. You are talking something about world wars, but a lot of you are just like Hitler or Stalin. Thats the same type of thinking about someone who is weak and ill. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!

  14. urmysin

    I watched the documentary & IMO I am glad he is taking control of his life finally. He better do this now while he is young so he can bounce back. Waiting around until he is older and in much worse heath would be a lot harder on his body. Good for you Billy you’re doing a good job keep up the good work to your goals.

  15. nICE

    i THINK Billy has done great bringing is weight done.Only strong hearted can achieve that.Well done Billy.

  16. Judy

    GOOD GRIEF …I JUST ABSOLUTELY CRINGE READING THE SHOCKING SPELLING AND APPALLING GRAMMAR OF AMERICANS AND OTHERS. AMERICANS ARE ABSOLUTELY FILLED WITH HATRED TOO AS IS EVIDENCED BY CHATROOMS AND WEBSITE POSTINGS. IT CERTAINLY IS A CRAZY WORLD. THAT AMY GIRL WHO POSTED A COMMENT NEEDS A SLAP AROUND THE LEGS WITH A STRAP AND I’D HAPPILY OBLIGE (I HAVE KIDS HER AGE). SHE’S ONE ANGRY LITTLE MENACE. I WAS APPALLED THOUGH IN THE DOCUMENTARY WHERE THE MOTHER SAYS BILLY SHOULD BE DATING ETC. WHY SHOULD HE BE??? HE IS TOO YOUNG TO DATE AND SHOULDN’T BE EXPECTED TO BE SLEEPING AROUND LIKE MOST AMERICANS. I WAS JUST CONCERNED HE NEEDED A WAY BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE. GOD BLESS BILLY AND HIS MUM THOUGH (EVEN THOUGH SHE GIVES TERRIBLE ADVICE) WHO JUST DIDNT KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THE SITUATION. I REALLY FEEL FOR BILLY AND ITS LOWLIFE LITTLE SCUM LIKE AMY AND JOEY WHO WOULD DO THE BULLYING. AND WHAT A BABYISH INANE COMMENT FROM ‘REPULSED”. AS IF ANYONE WHEN PRESENTED WITH YUMMY FOOD WOULD TURN IT DOWN DONT BE RIDICULOUS.
    BILLY MUST HAVE A NATURAL PROPENSITY TO PUT ON WEIGHT SO HE HAS TO BE SUPER CAREFUL. BLESS YOU BILLY YOU WILL BE SOMEONES GREAT INSPIRATION. IT’S NICE BILLY’S MUM GOT A JOB DRIVING A SCHOOL BUS IT WILL HELP HER OUTLOOK ON LIFE. I WOULDNT SAY FOR ONE MINUTE THOUGH THAT HIS MOTHER HAS MUNCHAUSEN BY PROXY THATS STUPID…SHE JUST BABIED HER SON AS HE IS ALL SHE HAS … BUT AS FOR THE GRAMMAR AND SPELLING HERE ITS ATROCIOUS AND SICKENING. ITS DANGEROUS TOO TO LET MOST LOOSE WITH A COMPUTER
    SO MANY ARE LEADING MISERABLE AND MESSED UP LIVES AND LET THEIR VENOM SPILL ONTO INTERNET PAGES !!!

    Joey 723. You are an ignorant. It’s a shame your mother never taught you if you have nothing good to say, don’t say anything at all.

  18. Buddha

    I think Billy is ah big baby and needs to grow some balls. His mother tends to him hand and foot that’s mainly why he is wat he is.

  19. Joey723

    I hope this fat A** dies just so his stupid fat pig of a mother feels like sh*t . She is a typical stupid women and she deserves nothing but pain and suffering in her life . And all u people that feel bad for him suck too , its just a typical liberal way of thinking ,instead of losing some weight and getting a job this filthy swine would rather sit in his own stink ,eat , and watch tv while he collects disabillity . That just cost me and every other hard working American RIDICULOUS

  20. bes

    to the ignorant fools who obviously never struggled with anything before,why cant u support a man who wants to live his life?people posting things like “repulsive” and “disguted”.Thats pretty obvious but thats not the point, you hide behind your keyboard typing vicious pathetic comments with your brainwashed finger.get outside your sad little narrow minded souless comfort zones n try and poke just 1 of your non existant pond life toes into the ocean of this hard core relentless world.im proud of Billy and inspired by his passion to live.

  21. VictoriiaaRAWR

    Yes, He’s fat. It’s not his fault however. It’s his mothers in grieving in her first son’s death.

    Billy is in somewhat not responsible in this case. Well yes he didn’t have to eat all that fatty food, but it tastes good.
    I don’t thing any of you would turn down a pizza?

    He is trying his hardest so he can lose weight and move out from his mothers house, so why is everyone having a go at him when it should be his mother in jail for allowing herself to do this to her child

  22. Emily UK

    Personally, I think it’s pretty disgusting that so many people are throwing prejudices like Americans=Fat, a lot of English fatties Fat C***, slob and his psychotic mother.

    At the end of the day he is very ill. You would not take the mick out of a cancer patient because he has smoked. You would not laugh at aperson with anorexia/bulemia lying on their death bed, so why do it to someone that has an addiction to food???

    With regards to his mother, everyone loves people in different ways. Yes the way she has loved him has contributed to him being so overwieght but he has had a personal choice to eat what is put in front of him.

    I believe that a lot of you people do not realise the trauma people go through when they are overwieght, the personal strain on your body and such name calling has a massively determental effect on your self esteem and leads to comfort eating. There gets to a point where it is not about self discipline but that you literally cannot see any chance of ever being ‘normal’ and the only thing that makes you happy is food, so why not?

    Also if anyone actually does their research they would find that in southern central America many years ago, the diet was high in fat and carbohydrates as there was a lot of physical labour. However, as machinery has now taken over the diet has remained. Therefore traditional food is VERY fattening.

    Being obese is nothing to laugh about, nothing to be nasty and vile about. I can’t believe that people have been so openly nasty about someone who are ill.

    I hope that you people that have written these hurtful comments really open your eyes.

    This is coming from someone that has reached the scales of obesity 17 stone and now 11 stone. This was not my mothers fault but because I have an addiction to food and will for the rest of my life.

  23. Amy

    Yeah, I’m american…not a proud one, but even so, I can’t help but feel a bit taken aback at the sheer number of people spewing scathing anti-american hatred on this page. Frankly, I despise Billy. I don’t know why on earth nobody has charged the mother with reckless endangerment, or at the very least, evaluated for Munchhausen’s and committed. But please, don’t equate us all with that slob and his psychotic, evil evil mother. Please.

    I noticed in a post or two that some ppl seem to equate being overweight with being American. Wile inLondon a few years ago, and then in Canterbury, I ran across a helluva lot of English fatties. Eating too much, exercising too little or not at all is not an issue of nationality, rather it is a demonstration of factors that include lack of self-discipline, mental health problems, as well as physical disabilities that can confine a person to a sedentary life. In the case of Billy, his mother exhibited the mental illness called Munchausen by Proxy, wherein a parent or caregiver deliberately causes illness or ill health in order to gain attention from others, especially those in the medical profession. Billy’s emotional growth was dramatically hindered by his mother leaving him a 20 year old with the emotional intellect of a prepubescent male. The outlook for this young man is not bright unless he is able to distance himself physically and emotionally from his mother while he gets the psychological treatment he requires.
