Two years after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, her insurance company reportedly is seeking to hold her former bodyguard responsible — to the tune of $6 million.
American International Group, more commonly known as AIG, filed a lawsuit in Delaware Wednesday against Kardashian’s former bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, and his company, Protect Security, CNN reports. They reportedly allege that Duvier and Protect Security “negligently, carelessly, and/or recklessly performed their protection, security, monitoring, inspection, and/or surveying of” Kardashian and the hotel where she stayed during Paris Fashion Week in 2016 and where she was later robbed at gunpoint. AIG is seeking $6.1 million, which they say is the same amount they paid Kardashian for the items she was robbed of, according to People.
The suit also claims that, in addition to failing to address various security concerns in the building, Duvier and Protect Security left Kardasian alone in her hotel room, unguarded, prior to the attack, CNN reports.
Five masked men robbed Kardashian at the No Address Hotel on Oct. 3 after gaining entry by disguising themselves as police officers. They bound the reality TV star’s hands and feet, placed her in a bathtub and locked the bathroom before making off with jewelry worth millions of dollars.
Duvier is no longer employed by the Kardashian family, having “reassigned himself to another family” one month after the robbery, People reports. According to the outlet, Duvier has not responded to a request for comment and deleted his Instagram account the same day that AIG filed their suit against him.
