(LOS ANGELES) — A security guard has filed a lawsuit against Kris Jenner claiming they sexually harassed him and she’s denying the allegations.
In court documents obtained by Page Six, Jenner’s ex-bodyguard Marc Williams is suing her, David Shield Security, Armor Protection Services Inc. and Kourtney Kardashian for sexual harassment, fostering a hostile work environment, racial and gender discrimination and retaliation.
Williams claims that beginning in May 2017 he “became subject to a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and otherwise harassing misconduct” from both Jenner, 64, and his supervisor. He also alleges that he informed Human Resources his complaints were ignored.
He claims he was then “suspended” from working with Jenner and provided services for Kardashian, 41, until he was ultimately “terminated,” the outlet reports.
In a statement to Page Six, Jenner’s attorney, Marty Singer said, “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,” Singer added. “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.”
