Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian are denying sexual harassment claims in a new lawsuit filed by a former bodyguard.

Jenner, 64, is being accused of a ‘pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and otherwise harassing misconduct,’ according to documents obtained by The Blast

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.

Jenner’s lawyer, Marty Singer, denied the claims in a statement to DailyMail.com: ‘Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian vehemently deny the completely false claims made by former security guard Marc McWilliams. 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. Significantly, McWilliams never made any complaints to his employer about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim a year later. 

‘Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper, nor did she do so. When Kris and Kourtney defeat this frivolous lawsuit, they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution.’

McWillliams reportedly worked for the family in 2017 and claimed that Kris ’embarked on a pattern of conduct involving non-consensual physical contact with Plaintiff of an inappropriate and sexual nature.’

He also claimed Kris was ‘repeatedly and frequently causing her body to come into intimate physical contact’ with his body.  

The claim includes: ‘Massaging (his) neck, shoulders, arms and back without consent, causing her hand to rest on (his) thigh and groin, causing her pelvis to rub against (his) back and/or rear-end without consent or approval, causing her hands to come into contact with (his) rear-end without consent or approval,’ and ‘exposing portions of her body to Plaintiff in a lewd or suggestive manner.’ 

The racial discrimination included, ‘pervasive and cruel mockery, harassment, belittling, and otherwise humiliating mistreatment by defendants due to (his) race.’ 

‘Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper, nor did she do so,’ Singer said in a statement to DailyMail.com

McWilliams reportedly contacted the security company’s HR department, but no further actions were taken. He was suspended from working with Kris, but still assigned on Kourtney’s detail.

The former security guard was allegedly fired on Sept. 12, 2018, and soon after filed a suit with Department Of Fair Employment and Housing.

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.

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.
