Kris JennerMarc McWilliams, Jenner’s former bodyguard, has reached a deal to settle her sexual assault case against her. McWilliams, 20 years Jenner’s junior, accused the famed momager of sexual harassment and groping him in 2017.
Jenner’s Former Bodyguard Claims He Was Fired For Rejecting Her Advances
Jenner and McWilliams reached an agreement on the lawsuit and will now proceed to private arbitration. This means any compromise they reach will be done behind closed doors and not before a judge and jury.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Armen Tazarian gave both the parties until January 6, 20,23 to find an arbitrator who will listen and then come up with a solution. In cases like this, arbitrators are typically private judges.
McWilliams initially sued Jenner in 2020, for $3 million. He claimed that Jenner grabbed her butt, exposed herself and fired him when she rejected his advances. McWilliams added another claim last February to his legal action. He claimed that Jenner sexually assaulted and drove with him.
Jenner’s Alleged Assault
McWilliams describes the assault in his amended complaint. McWilliams claims Jenner was compelled to take her Bentley out in October 2017 and ordered him to ride in the passenger seat. In legal documents, McWilliams’ attorney Sean Novak said, “She began making comments to plaintiff (McWilliams) of a flirtatious and overtly sexual nature. 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,” Novak continued. “McWilliams was shocked and offended by the uninvited and overtly sexual contact by Jenner and attempted to shift away from her groping. 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.”
McWilliams was “emotionally distressed” by Jenner’s actions, claiming that he suffered “physical and mental pain … illness … loss of sleep, depression” and other health issues as a result of the incident.
McWilliams’ Other Complaints Against Jenner
According to documents McWilliams asked Jenner numerous times to stop her inappropriate behavior. But he was always ignored. In addition to sexual misconduct, McWilliams also claims he was racially discriminated against, alleging “pervasive and cruel mockery, harassment, belittling, and otherwise humiliating mistreatment by defendants due to (his) race.”
Jenner’s attorney, Marty Singer, denies the former bodyguard’s claims, telling DailyMail.com, “Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian [who was also named in the suit]Marc, an ex-security guard, has made totally false claims. We strongly refute them. Marc made absurd claims that are clearly false and contradictory to easily verified facts. Kris never acted inappropriately toward him.”
