Kim Kardashian West’s bodyguard is being sued for $6.1m by the celebrity’s insurer after she was robbed in Paris two years ago.

Insurer AIG claims Pascal Duvier and his company Protect Security “negligently” protected the star’s private apartment.

Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint and tied up during Paris Fashion Week in October 2016.

AIG paid for the cost of the jewellery stolen in the incident.

The five robbers, dressed as police officers, put a gun to her head while they robbed her before tying her up and locking her in a bathroom.

Duvier at the time was accompanying Kardashian West’s sisters, Kourtney and Kendall, to a nightclub.

AIG’s lawsuit, filed in Delaware, reportedly claims the bodyguard and his firm left the celebrity alone in her room.

According to celebrity website TMZ, the suit also alleges there were numerous security breaches – including a missing or broken lock and a broken intercom system – which they think should also have been addressed.

Duvier and his Protect Security company have reportedly acted as protection for other celebrities, including the Black Eyed Peas.
