Robbie Williams' representative blasts sexual harassment lawsuit

A representative for British pop star Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field has hit back at a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against the couple by a former assistant, insisting the allegations are "entirely without substance".

Gilles De Bonfilhs is suing the pair amid claims actress Field shared inappropriate details about her sex life, asked him questions about his bedroom habits and walked around her home half-naked during his short stint in the couple's employment, which ended when he alleges he was "wrongfully terminated" in January (15).


He has since filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeking more than $25,000 in damages for embarrassment, humiliation and mental and emotional distress.


However, a spokesperson for the Angels hitmaker has now slammed the accusations.


A statement released on Wednesday (13May15) reads: "The claims being made by a disgruntled former employee, after he was sacked (fired) 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."


Williams and Field have been married since 2010 and have two children.
