Kris Jenner has denied allegations made by her former bodyguard. He claims in May 2017, he became subject to "a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and other harassing misconduct" from Kris.

In the suit, McWilliams also claimed that Kourtney was responsible for his firing, which he alleged was retaliation for not returning Kris' alleged sexual advances.

Marc McWilliams claims he was hired in 2017 as a security guard to watch over Kris and the fam.

"Kris never acted inappropriately toward him".

Kourtney Kardashian is listed as a defendant in the lawsuit filed by Marc McWilliams, who filed the suit claiming sexual harassment, hostile work environment, racial discrimination and gender discrimination.

McWilliams said he made repeated complaints to his employer about Jenner's alleged behaviour. "The security guard worked outside the house and he never even went into Kris' house", attorney Marty Singer said.

The statement explained that while Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything "improper".

The documents state that Kris made comments "of an overt sexual nature" towards him, and remarked about his physical appearance, asking about his sex life and suggesting they "engage in a romantic and sexual relationship". He also claimed he was victim to "derogatory comments concerning [his] sex/gender". The former employee wrote that he complained to his supervisors, and claimed that both Jenner and Kardashian allegedly "failed and refused to take action" to stop Jenner's "attacks" against him in the work place.

After 20 seasons on E!, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the series which catapult the family into the spotlight, is set to end in January 2021.

McWilliams went into further detail about this alleged "physical contact"; on page 10 of the court documents, he accused Jenner of "massaging" his neck, shoulders, back and arms and "resting" her hand on his "thigh and groins". (Though he continued to work for Kourtney.) After his suspension, McWilliams was later "terminated" from his role as Kris' bodyguard.

Kris' attorney reacted to the lawsuit with a statement to TMZ. In September 2018, he was reportedly "suspended" from working with Jenner but was asked to continue to guard Kardashian.

He claimed that following his exit, he endured 'harassment, intimidation and otherwise threatening misconduct in an effort to dissuade or prevent (him) from bringing any form of action, ' from the Kardashian-Jenner camp.
