Kim Kardashian West’s insurance company is suing her former bodyguard and his employer for more than $6 million.
The 37-year-old reality TV star was robbed at gun point in Paris, France, in 2016 and Pascal Duvier – as well as the private security firm he works for, PROTECTSECURITY – has been hit with a lawsuit worth $6,116,067 by AIG.
The insurance firm – which is seeking to recover the money it paid out to Kim for the jewellery stolen during the robbery – says Pascal “negligently, carelessly, and/or recklessly performed their protection, security, monitoring, inspection, and/or surveying of” Kim and her hotel room.
The documents, which have been obtained by ‘Entertainment Tonight’, add: “As a result of Defendants’ failure to address and correct the various security breaches in the Hotel and leaving [Kardashian] in her hotel room alone … the masked men were able to enter the Hotel and rob [Kardashian] of her personal property. (sic)”
At the time of the incident, Kim – who is married to rap star Kanye West – was staying at the hotel with her sister Kourtney Kardashian and her entourage.
However, on the night of the robbery, Pascal left the property to accompany Kourtney to a nightclub, leaving Kim on her own.
The TV star was ambushed in her room and then forced to hand over her jewellery before she was gagged and left in the bathtub.
