Kim Kardashian and Kanye West 'no longer working with top security guard' after Paris robbery

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly no longer working with their bodyguard Pascal Duvier following Kim’s Paris robbery ordeal.

A source told Entertainment Tonight (ET) that the celebrity couple have let go of Pascal and two other members of their security team.

“It’s a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn’t take any more chances,” the source said.

Pascal had been with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star during Paris Fashion Week in October but he was alongside her sister Kourtney at the time of the robbery.

The 43-year-old began working with rapper Kanye in 2012 and Kim in 2013 and he will now guard singer Fergie at her upcoming shows, according to ET.

Pascal is the chief executive and chairman of Protect Security and has a celebrity client list that includes The Black Eyed Peas, Ciara, David Guetta and Frank Ocean, it has been reported.

Just days before Kim’s robbery, the reality TV star praised Pascal for taking down notorious prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who lunged at her while she was walking into a Paris restaurant.

Meanwhile, Kim is slowly returning to public life following the robbery after attending her sister Kendall’s 21st birthday party at Delilah restaurant in LA on Wednesday night.
