Kim Kardashian and Kanye West No Longer Working With Longtime Bodyguard Pascal Duvier

Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West recently let go of their main bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, following Kim's robbery in Paris, France, two sources tell ET. Duvier, 43, had been working with Kim since 2013, and with Kanye since 2012.

While Duvier was with Kim in France during Paris Fashion Week, he was with her older sister, Kourtney Kardashian -- who was enjoying a night out with their younger sister, Kendall Jenner -- at the time of the robbery.

"Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye," one source tells ET. "It's a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn't take any more chances."

Last month, a source close to Kim told ET that she and Kanye were definitely rethinking their security measures after the terrifying incident in Paris. "Kim and Kanye are reassessing their security detail now. Kanye is freaking out -- this really threw him for a loop," the source said. "There will be a lot of things that change now in terms of security, especially with the children [3-year-old North and 11-month-old Saint]."

However, Duvier was still with both Kim and Kanye after the robbery last month, when they stepped out of the New York City apartment they had been staying in, en route to Los Angeles. Duvier was spotted putting luggage into a black vehicle, dressed in all black and sporting his usual fanny pack.


ET exclusively spoke to the hotel concierge who was held at gunpoint alongside Kim, Abdulrahman, last month, who said he didn't blame Duvier for the incident.

"They have guns, you can't move," he said about the robbers, adding that Duvier would have been easily outnumbered by the five men. "He can't do anything. He can't."

He also told ET that a phone call from Duvier at the time of the robbery was what may have ended the robbery abruptly.

"When [Kim's] phone rang, I take it and saw Pascal -- the name of the bodyguard -- and I told the guy, 'You know who is calling now? He is her bodyguard, and if she didn't answer him now, he will come with police.'"

Abdulrahman says the robbers fled shortly after, and Duvier returned to the hotel.
