When Kim Kardashian was tied up, held at gunpoint, and robbed of more than $10 million in jewels, her bodyguard was not in the apartment — although he was in the family's presidential-level security detail when they returned to NYC.
On the night of the crime, the 6-foot-4 and 264-pound Pascal Duvier was out at nearby Arc nightclub with Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. So his role in allowing the crime to transpire — and his absence — was widely noted and criticized in the media. Now we know his story.
On a personal blog cited by the Daily Mail, he shared his statement: “The events that occurred in Paris was one of the most sickening things I have seen or heard. We have tips and leads and we will find you. That I promise you... you messed with the wrong one.”
He also shared the comments on his social media profiles, which he's made private following the attack.
Duvier, who has also worked in protection for many other famous names, has been with Kim since 2014. When she was nearly attacked by Vitalii Sediuk recently, Duvier shut him down fast, pinning him to the ground. Kim reacted on Twitter by saying: “My security @PascalDuvier is a G!”
She also shared a paparazzi photo with him right before the crime, joking in her caption, “This guy is always in my shot!”
Us reported that Kim does not blame Pascal for what happened. He is still employed.
