Kim Kardashian West sues bodyguard for R90m over Paris robbery
Kim Kardashian West’s bodyguard is being sued for R90 million over the Paris robbery which left her bound and gagged in a bathtub.
An estimated R146 million worth of jewels including her 20-carat engagement ring were taken during the late-night robbery in October 2016.
Her insurance company is suing her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, and his company saying they ‘negligently’ protected her apartment where she was held at gunpoint by a gang dressed as policemen.
While she was bound, gagged and locked in a bathroom, her bodyguard accompanied two of her sisters to a nightclub.
The insurance company, AIG, claims the bodyguard and his firm left the celebrity alone in her room and also alleges security breaches, including a missing or broken lock.
At the time the Kardashians said they did not blame Duvier, but he no longer works for them.
