Robbie Williams and wife Ayda Field deny sexual harassment claims by former PA

Singer's spokesman says that lawsuit by Gilles De Bonfihls is ‘entirely without substance’

Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field have denied claims by the couple’s former PA, who has accused Field of sexually harassing him.

Gilles De Bonfihls has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles, in which he states that Field “walked around in various stages of undress and shared details about her sex life.” It also alleges that actress Field quizzed De Bonfihls about his own sex life and asked him to comment on her body.

De Bonfihls was employed by the couple at their Los Angeles home from November 2014 to January 2015 before being fired for serious misconduct. His lawsuit is also seeking damages for alleged discrimination, breach of employment contract, fraud and record-keeping violations. De Bonfihls, who was employed as Williams and Field’s house manager as well as their PA, says his employment was guaranteed for six months.

Williams’ spokesman said: “The claims are being made by a disgruntled former employee, after he was sacked for serious misconduct. They 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 lawyers.”

Williams is due to resume his ‘Let Me Entertain You’ tour at Pinkpop Festival in the Netherlands on June 13, but has no scheduled British shows. He quit Take That in 2012 for the second time, since when he has released the solo albums ‘Take The Crown’ and ‘Swings Both Ways’ as well as demos compilation ‘Under The Radar’.
