You bet it can be unfair. I know that from personal experience, as well as from all the people I have worked with over the years. Continue to discuss this situation with your boss, so he can remain aware of what this nasty guy is up to ; apparently he already knows about this. And make it clear to your boss how very happy you are in working for him, and how you appreciate his skill in seeing through the other guy. Isn't it possible for your boss to arrange for him and his PA to share with someone else ( unfortunate person ! ) rather than with you ? OR to confirm what the division of tasks will be ?
Don't worry about trying to figure out why he's like that --- I'll bet he himself doesn't mknow the answer to that. You don't need to understand him, just to avoid him where possible, and to work, maybe even with a few counselling sessions, on becoming invulnerable to him --- mif you dont't give him the power, and don't allow him to upset you so, this will disappoint him, but leave you unharmed.
