Robbie Williams and his wife are reportedly being sued for sexual harassment by a former personal assistant who was sacked by the couple.

Gilles De Bonfilhs alleges he was harassed by Ayda Field during his short tenure as the couple's PA, according to Los Angeles-based TMZ news.

His lawsuit claims the actress "walked around in various stages of undress, shared details about her sex life, questioned him about his sex life and asked him to answer questions and comment on her body".

He was later fired, in January this year.

Williams is named a defendant, but Bonfilhs makes no sexual harassment allegations against him.

The couple married in 2010 after four years together and have had two children, Theodora Rose and Charlton Valentine.

A spokesperson for the former Take That star said: "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."

The sexual harassment claims are not the only fight Williams has on his hands - he is also embroiled in a planning dispute with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page .
