Kim Kardashian's bodyguard is being sued for $6M for not protecting her during Paris robbery
TMZ reported Wednesday that the company has now filed a lawsuit seeking $6.1 million — the amount it paid Kardashian for her jewelry, including the 20-carat, Lorraine Schwartz-designed engagement ring given to her by Kanye West.
The theft was committed by two men dressed as police officers who stormed the apartment where she was staying, forced her into a bathtub, tied her up, and taped her mouth shut on Oct. 3, 2016.
The lawsuit reportedly alleges that the bodyguard should have fixed various security breaches at the location, such as a missing lock on the building's front gate and a broken intercom on the door.
AIG did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Following the robbery, Kardashian made changes to her security team, which reportedly included ending her professional relationship with Duvier.
"Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye," a source told ET in November 2016. "It's a pretty tough situation overall, and they love Pascal, but they couldn't take any more chances."
Neither the hotel where Kardashian was robbed nor the concierge who was held at gunpoint while he took the robbers to Kardashian's room are being sued, TMZ noted.
Kardashian was traumatized by the event and even avoided posting photos of expensive items on social media for some time afterward.
