The Rock DJ hitmaker and his wife were notably on the judging panel alongside the Irishman for the ITV singing competition, and Louis criticised Robbie for ‘bringing his wife to work’ while on the show during an interview.
Now Robbie has hit back at Louis’s comments, saying he was ‘two-faced and incredibly feeble’ for making them.
Ayda also admitted that she thinks the comment was ‘sexist’ and is frustrated at Louis after he had been ‘flattering’ to her off camera.
‘What was gutting about that was Louis had been incredibly flattering and gushing to me in private,’ Ayda told The Mail On Sunday’s You magazine. ‘It was sexist too.
‘I mean “bring your wife to work” how dare you? Every part of me wanted to shout back b****y and rude thing.’
Robbie also revealed that he slept with his drug dealer on the night that he first met his future wife.
‘My drug dealer had just left, I’d slept with her and she’d left me a bag of drugs,’ he confessed.
‘I’m so square, I had no idea about any of that,’ Ayda replied.
As she and Robbie went to a party following his sexual encounter, she later recalled feeling a sense ‘electricity’ between her and the singer as they got to know each other better that night.
‘Suddenly I sensed this electricity. It was like Rob understood the fibre of me,’ she said.
‘I wanted to say, “Did you just feel that?” but I would have seemed like a freak. Much later, Rob was telling someone about that night and said, “There was this amazing moment on the couch when I fell in love with her”. And I was like, “You felt that too?”’
Ayda had previously revealed that she had concerns about her husband when they first met – with the two coming face to face for the first time just two weeks before Robbie went to rehab.
Speaking on Loose Women in November, Robbie revealed: ‘I met Ayda two weeks before going to rehab and it still didn’t put her off! You are mental, you really rolled the dice there babes.’
However, the actress insisted that she followers her heart, and ignored the warning signs.
‘I didn’t know what I was getting into,’ she confessed. ‘There were warning signs dancing over his head, but I was like, “I think I love him.”’
