Two years after Kim Kardashian West‘s terrifying Paris heist, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star’s insurance company has filed a $6.1 million lawsuit against her former security team, who were hired to keep her protected.
It is basically the bodyguard who ditched Kim Kardashian West just before she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, in 2016 who is being sued.
Pascal Duvier and the company he worked for, ‘PROTECTSECURITY’ are being sued by Kim Kardashian’s insurance company for $6.1 million, which is the amount the insurance company paid Kim for the stolen jewelry that was taken at gunpoint October 3, 2016 at a Paris hotel.
As per reports, Duvier left the hotel room and followed Kourtney and Kendall to a nearby club, leaving Kim without security. The lawsuit also claims there were a number of security failures in the hotel that the bodyguard failed to correct. Among other things, the front gate to the courtyard of the hotel was missing a lock, and the intercom to the door was not functioning. All of these things should’ve been flagged by the bodyguard.
The lawsuit claims Duvier and Protect Security “negligently, carelessly, and/or recklessly performed their protection, security, monitoring, inspection, and/or surveying of” Kardashian West and the Hotel. Duvier and Protect Security “should have known that they were required to protect, secure, monitor, inspect, and/or survey … using the skill and care reasonably expected of those in this industry.”
The lawsuit, filed by AIG, claims that the breaches allowed the masked gunmen to enter the hotel and make their way up to Kim’s unit, where she was gagged, tied up and put in a bathtub.
The lawsuit blasts the concierge for not having any security training, but neither he nor the hotel are being sued. He was also held at gunpoint and taken up to Kim’s unit where he unlocked the door.
