Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian sued for sexual harassment by security guard alleging non-consensual massage
Marc McWilliams claims he became subject to 'a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and other harassing misconduct' from Jenner. Jenner and Kardashian dubbed these allegations 'fabricated and false fiction' by a disgruntled ex-employee
A security guard called Marc McWilliams has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, claiming that they both sexually harassed him with sexual comments and overtures. McWilliams, as per a TMZ report, claimed that he was hired in 2017 as a security guard for Jenner and her family.
In May that year, as per McWilliams, he became subject to "a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and other harassing misconduct" from Jenner. She allegedly made comments of "an overt sexual nature," including comments about his physical appearance and his sexual activities, among other things.
McWilliams also alleged that Jenner had once massaged his neck, shoulders, arms, and back without his consent. She had also allegedly rested her hand on his thigh and groin. Additionally, he alleged that she rubbed her pelvis against his back and rear end. Jenner also supposedly exposed portions of her body to him. McWilliams further claimed that Jenner made "lewd suggestive, sexual, sexist, racist, homophobic and otherwise discriminatory comments at him and his co-workers."
He said that Jenner engaged in a pattern of conduct "involving non-consensual physical contact" with him. And despite the fact that he complained to the human resources department of his security company, his complaints remained ignored.
Jenner and Kardashian have dubbed these allegations as "fabricated and false fiction" by a disgruntled ex-employee. Jenner's lawyer, Marty Singer, told TMZ, "Kris categorically denies ever behaving inappropriately toward Marc McWilliams. The security guard worked outside the house and he never even went into Kris' house."
Singer further said, "Kris had very little interaction with him. After the guard was repeatedly caught sleeping in his car while on the job, the security company was asked not to assign him to work there in the future."
Singer added, "The guard never made any complaints to his employer about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim. Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper with the guard, nor did she do so. It is outrageous that anyone can sue anyone in America and believe there is no recourse when pursuing fictional and meritless claims. When Kris and Kourtney defeat this ridiculous, frivolous lawsuit they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution."
This is not the first time the Jenner-Kardashian clans have had issues with security personnel. In 2018, Jenner was tackled by Kim Kardashian West’s security team. Reportedly, the Jenner matriarch had entered Kardashian West’s Calabasas, California, property through an area that was out of bounds. Following this, security pounced on her. "We were in the backyard and Mum came down when she shouldn't have," Khloé Kardashian explained in ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’. "I told her to go around and they just tackled her."
Earlier this year, Kanye West’s former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, speaking on the ‘Hollywood Raw’ podcast about his brief stint as West's security guard, explained why he was one of his "least favorite people to work with over the course of time."
He said that he had to abide by West's “ridiculous rules”, one of which being having to “stay ten paces” behind the rapper at all times. He also suggested that the rapper and the reality star called the paparazzi on themselves. "There’s no way [paparazzi] doesn’t get called upfront," Stanulis said. "There’s no way every time they are leaving, all these people know about it. There's definitely somebody calling ahead. That’s just my opinion… I’m just saying it coincidental that wherever we are, they're always there. Maybe they’re just better than I think they are."
