The Kardashian’s momager Kris and daughter Kourtney have been slammed with an explosive lawsuit in which their former bodyguard alleges he was sexually harassed.
Kris (64) has denied the allegations made by bodyguard Marc McWilliams (41), who claims that between 2017 and 2018, he was subjected to “inappropriate behaviour’ while working for the family, US Magazine reports.
He is suing Kris for sexual harassment, hostile work environment, racial discrimination and gender discrimination.
The Sun reports that in his lawsuit, he says he was “subject to a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and otherwise harassing misconduct,” from Kris, his boss.
It is not yet clear for what amount the Kardashians are being sued.
Kourtney is also named in the lawsuit because she was also guarded by him at the time.
Kris and Kourtney have denied the allegations. Their lawyer, Marty Singer, told the DailyMail that his clients “vehemently deny the completely false claims made by former security guard Marc McWilliams”.
“The guard never made any complaints … about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim,” the Hollywood attorney said in the statement.
While Kourtney is named in the lawsuit, the lawyer says that “she is not accused of doing anything improper, nor did she do so”.
The Kardashians, he says, intend “defeating this frivolous lawsuit [and] they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution”.
The security company for which the bodyguard worked, David Shield Security and Armor Protection Services Inc, fired him after he was caught sleeping on duty in his car, PageSix reports.
