Kris Jenner's Former Bodyguard Is Suing Her for Alleged Sexual Harassment
Jenner and her eldest daughter Kourtney are named in the suit, though they both "vehemently deny" the claims.
Kris Jenner is being sued by her former bodyguard, Marc McWilliams.
The suit, which implicates Kourtney Kardashian as a defendant as well, includes allegations of sexual harassment, racial and gender discrimination, and wrongful termination, People reports. McWilliams is also suing his former employer, David Shield Security.
Court documents claim that the matriarch "embarked on a pattern of conduct involving non-consensual physical contact with [McWilliams] of an inappropriate and sexual nature.”
McWilliams began working for Jenner in May 2017, which is allegedly when the unwanted advances began.
”Between May, 2017 and September 12, 2018 defendant Jenner began repeatedly and frequently causing her body to come into intimate physical contact with the body of [McWilliams] and making overt comments of sexual nature to [McWilliams] on a repeated basis,” the filing reads.
It was during this window of time that McWilliams claims he alerted his supervisors to Jenner’s behavior, to no avail.
McWilliams allegedly expressed his concerns to Jenner herself, informing her that "such misconduct was unwelcome” and asking that she "cease and desist any such further misconduct.” According to the claimant, Jenner “ignored all such requests.”
After the complaints were made, McWilliams says Jenner, Kardashian, and David Shield Security all "began a campaign of harassment, intimidation, and further torment.”
Said harassment included "false disciplinary excuses such as tardiness" and "false claims of 'poor attitude.'"
McWilliams alleges that "suggestive, sexual, sexist, racist and otherwise discriminatory comments” were made in front of his co-workers as well.
His hours were then cut and he was allegedly “suspended” from working with Jenner, though still able to serve her daughter, before he was fired on Sept. 12, 2018.
Jenner’s lawyer, Marty Singer, has denied all of McWilliams’s allegations, telling People, “Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian vehemently deny the completely false claims made by former security guard Marc McWilliams.”
"His absurd allegations are clearly fabricated and are contrary to easily confirmed facts. Kris never acted inappropriately toward him. The security company stopped assigning McWilliams to work there after the guard was repeatedly caught sleeping in his car on the job. Significantly, McWilliams never made any complaints to his employer about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim a year later.”
"Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper, nor did she do so. When Kris and Kourtney defeat this frivolous lawsuit, they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution."
