Kim Kardashian West’s bodyguard is understood to have been minding Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner when the reality TV star was allegedly bound and held at gunpoint.

Pascal Duvier is often spotted in pictures with Kardashian West and last week jumped in to prevent a celebrity prankster from grabbing the 35-year-old as she walked outside of L'Avenue restaurant in Paris. 

On Monday, French police said his most high-profile client was robbed by a group of armed men who allegedly made off with jewellery worth close to £9 million. Duvier faced accusations of not protecting Kardashian West online, when he was with her two sisters at events in Paris at the time, according to reports. 

Kardashian West’s friend and stylist Simone Harouche was staying in the property at the time of the break-in and rang Duvier, who reportedly arrived a couple of minutes after the robbers had fled. 

 

Duvier has relayed his passion for his job on his Twitter account, beginning with a warning from followers not to ask him to pass on messages to his clients. His service has been praised by Kardashian West, who gave him a shout out on Twitter last week. 

When asked by one follower how he maintains his fitness despite having such a busy schedule with the Kardashians, his answer was unequivocal: “If you find time to eat and sleep, you find time to train.” 

He gave a similarly businesslike response to one who asked if he became friends with his clients or if relationships were strictly professional. 

French authorities are still searching for the assailants who fled after the break-in. They declined to say whether they are accepting help from her entourage, including her security detail. 

Details of the alleged attack continue to emerge, with police in Paris claiming Kardashian West was targeted after posting pictures of diamond jewellery on social media.

Kardashian West was reportedly tied up with duct tape, gagged and feared she would be raped by the masked men. Her publicist told The Independent she was “badly shaken” but physically unhurt.
