Kris Jenner denies sexual harassment charges filed by ex-bodyguard

Reality Star and former model Kris Jenner’s former security guard Marc McWilliams has sued her, David Shield Security, Armor Protection Services Inc., and Kourtney Kardashian for sexual harassment. The lawsuit includes a hostile work environment, racial and gender discrimination, and retaliation.
The court documents, which started in May 2017, claims that McWilliams “became subject to a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and otherwise harassing misconduct” from his supervisor and Jenner, 64.
He further alleged that Kris Jenner made non-consensual physical contact with him in “an inappropriate and sexual nature,” adding that nothing happened after he complained to Jenner and his supervisors at Shield Security.
Marc McWilliams also claims that the complaints to human resources between May 2017 and September 2018 resulted in no action until Jenner “began intentionally retaliating against” him.
The ex-bodyguard added that he was was “suspended” from working alongside Jenner in that same month, but continued to provide security for Kardashian before he was “terminated” from Jenner’s protection team.
Jenner’s attorney, Marty Singer, said in a statement, “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.”
Singer further added, “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.”
