Former Kim Kardashian’s bodyguard Pascal Duvier and his security and protection company Protect Security are being sued by American International Group (AIG) for $6,116,067 the same amount the insurance company paid Kardashian West for the stolen jewelry that she was robbed of at gunpoint on Oct. 3, 2016, at the No Address Hotel during Paris Fashion Week.
The lawsuit by her lawyer states that the Parisian hotel where Kardashian was staying faced a number of security red flags, including a broken lock on the front gate to the hotel’s courtyard, a malfunctioning exterior intercom, and a concierge who did not have “any security training and/or background.”
The lawsuit further alleges that Pascal and by extension his security firm “negligently, carelessly, and/or recklessly performed their protection, security, monitoring, inspection, and/or surveying of” Kardashian West and the Hotel by not flagging and addressing these security concerns.
“Pascal no longer works for Kim and Kanye, but he wasn’t fired. He instead reassigned himself to another family for professional reasons. Pascal thought that he did let down Kim and didn’t do his job properly in Paris. They all agreed that it was better for Kim and Kanye to hire a completely new security team,” a source said at the time.
It was also reported that Duvier who usually stay with Kardashian had gone to a nearby nightclub with Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.
t’s unclear if Kardashian, who started working with Duvier in 2013 (one year after he began protecting West), is still in touch with the bodyguard. He did, however, share a throwback photo with the Selfish author in August on Instagram. “Once upon a time….” he captioned a photo of the pair visiting troops abroad the USS San Diego in 2014.
