Who is Marc McWilliams? Kris Jenner's ex-bodyguard to settle 'crotch-groping' suit with her
Kris Jenner and Marc McWilliams who had accused her of sexually assaulting him have decided to settle their differences
Kris Jenner and a man who had accused her of sexually assaulting him have reportedly decided to settle their differences in "private arbitration". Jenner's former bodyguard, Marc McWilliams, 45, had claimed that she "groped his crotch". Jenner was accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault and battery.
Kris Jenner, 66, and Marc McWilliams agreed to take their case into "private arbitration" in an LA court hearing last week. This simply means that the issues between the two will be resolved privately behind closed doors. McWilliams worked for the family from 2017-2019. In a series of shocking allegations, he had claimed that she both sexually harassed him and "groped his crotch".
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Armen Tamzarian ruled that both of them have one year to find an arbitrator to examine arguments. They are required to decide upon a settlement in exactly a year's time. McWilliams first sued Jenner for $3 million in 2020. The rapper-turned bodyguard claimed that Jenner exposed herself to him and grabbed his butt. He accused her of firing him when he refused to entertain her advances.
Last February, McWilliams added that Jenner sexually assaulted him while they were out in her luxury Bentley. McWilliams claimed that in October 2017, Jenner wanted to go out in her Bentley. She subsequently asked him to sit in the front passenger seat.
"She began making comments to the plaintiff (McWilliams) of a flirtatious and overtly sexual nature," his attorney Sean Novak asserted in court documents," the allegation said. "Without warning, Jenner placed her right hand on the inside upper left thigh and groin area of McWilliams in a manner that was overtly sexually offensive. She then caused her right hand to move up the upper, inner left thigh and groin while caressing McWilliams."
"McWilliams was shocked and offended by the uninvited and overtly sexual contact by Jenner and attempted to shift away from her groping," continued the allegations. "As he moved his body away from the offensive sexual contact, Jenner's right hand come into contact with McWilliams' inner groin and genital area." The filing further stated that he was subjected to "racial discrimination," including, "pervasive and cruel mockery, harassment, belittling, and otherwise humiliating mistreatment by defendants due to (his) race."
After Jenner suspended him, McWilliams worked for her eldest daughter Kourtney. He was fired again in 2019. Jenner's attorney, Marty Singer, said after the suit was filed, "Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian vehemently deny the completely false claims made by former security guard Marc. His absurd allegations are clearly fabricated and are contrary to easily confirmed facts. Kris never acted inappropriately toward him."
"The security company stopped assigning McWilliams to work there after the guard was repeatedly caught sleeping in his car on the job," the statement claimed. "Significantly, McWilliams never made any complaints to his employer about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim a year later."
