Robbie Williams is being sued for sexual harassment! His former assistant is also coming after his wife, Ayda Field, for being harassed during the time he worked for the singer, along with a slew of other charges.
Gilles de Bonfilhs claims that after working as Robbie’s personal assistant from October 2014 to January 2015, he was let go without a proper reason.
He also says that some of his job requirements were sexual and inappropriate. Gilles claims he faced a myriad of unprovoked and undesired advances and behaviors from the musician and his wife.
In fact, he has said that Ayda would openly share the gory details about her sex life and even strip down to her birthday suit in front of him!
The former employee added that Robbie’s wife would ask him to discuss his own lust life.
Gilles is saying that the couple has mortified him, which has caused “mental and emotional distress,” and he’s asking for $25,000.
Robbie’s rep says that the couple didn’t do anything wrong, and hint that this is just a ploy for Gilles to cash in:
“The claims being made by a disgruntled former employee, after he was sacked for serious misconduct, are entirely without substance. Any proceedings will be strenuously defended. There will be no further comment on the matter as it is in the hands of the lawyers.”
Robbie and Ayda are denying the allegations.
Yikes! This certainly is messy.
We hope they’re telling the truth, because no one should have to work in an environment that makes them uncomfortable!
