Sir Gavin Williamson is now accused of telling a senior official to cut his throat when he was Defense Secretary.
The former official told the Guardian Sir Gavin made the remarks at a meeting in front of colleagues and also allegedly told them to “jump out the window”.
They added Sir Gavin, who was sacked by both Theresa May and Boris Johnson when they were prime ministers, regularly “deliberately humiliated and intimidated” them.
In a statement, Sir Gavin said: “I strongly deny this allegation and have enjoyed good working relationships with the many brilliant officials I have worked with throughout Government.
“I have never been made aware of any specific allegations.”
However, the Cabinet Office minister did not specifically deny using the alleged language.
Rishi Sunak is under pressure to bring Sir Gavin back into government after it emerged he allegedly sent abusive messages to fellow Tory fellow Wendy Morton.
In the lyrics, he complained about not being invited to the Queen’s funeral, telling the former chief whip, “You f*** us all.”
Mr Sunak said the language was “unacceptable” but said he would await an investigation into the complaint “before making any decisions about the future”.
Commenting on the new allegations, a Cabinet Office spokesman said: “The Cabinet Office has received no notification of formal complaints about Gavin Williamson’s conduct from his time at the Department of Defense or any other department.”
Baroness Morgan, a former cabinet minister under Mrs May, said she “clashed” with Sir Gavin when he was Chief Whip, adding: “Unfortunately, none of this surprises me.”
She told TalkTV: “Unfortunately Gavin has a good reputation, it’s not a very good one and I really don’t know why Rishi Sunak felt he needed to have him back in government.”
Labour’s shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper suggested the new PM had done “dirty political dealings” with Sir Gavin and Suella Braverman.
Ms Braverman was reappointed as Home Secretary just six days after she resigned over a security breach.
Ms Cooper told BBC Breakfast: “In both cases it really looks like Rishi Sunak has just made sleazy political deals that are not in the national interest.
“It really looks like we’ve got more of it. That’s not good enough.’
