ALMOST two years after Kim Kardashian was robbed and held at gunpoint, her “negligent and reckless” former bodyguard is being sued for a staggering amount.
IT’S been two years since Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, and her former security guard Pascal Duvier is now being sued.
Duvier, who left Kardashian alone in her apartment to guard her sisters at a nightclub the night of the robbery, and ProtectSecurity (the company he worked for), are the targets of a $US 6.1 million ($AUD 8.5) lawsuit by insurance company AIG, reports TMZ.
The $6.1 million is the amount AIG paid to Kardashian for the stolen jewels – including a massive diamond ring.
The suit places much of the blame for the robbery on Duvier, sighting security breaches at the hotel that he failed to correct.
AIG also claims Duvier failed to point out several problems including an insecure front gate of the hotel and a malfunctioning intercom system.

At least 17 people have been arrested in connection to the jewellery heist.
Shortly after the robbery, Duvier was sacked by the Kardashian family.
“He was let go because they are bringing on an entirely new team,” an insider told Page Six.
