Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian have denied their former security guard’s claims of sexual harassment.
The former employee, Marc McWilliams, is thought to have been hired by mum-of-six Kris in 2017.
He reportedly claimed that he became subject to ‘a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and other harassing misconduct.’
According to TMZ, McWilliams claims Jenner made ‘lewd suggestive, sexual, sexist, racist, homophobic and otherwise discriminatory comments at him and his co-workers.’
He also claims she gave him massages without consent, and exposed parts of her body to him, according to the site.
Jenner and Kardashian’s lawyer, Martin Singer, told the publication: ‘Kris categorically denies ever behaving inappropriately toward Marc McWilliams. The security guard worked outside the house and he never even went into Kris’ house.’
He added: ‘Kris had very little interaction with him. After the guard was repeatedly caught sleeping in his car while on the job, the security company was asked not to assign him to work there in the future.’
‘The guard never made any complaints to his employer about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim […] Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper with the guard, nor did she do so,’ Singer continued.
Singer added: ‘It is outrageous that anyone can sue anyone in America and believe there is no recourse when pursuing fictional and meritless claims.
‘When Kris and Kourtney defeat this ridiculous, frivolous lawsuit they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution.’
Jenner is best known for starring on Keeping Up With The Kardashians alongside her daughters Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie.
Most recently, the star opened up about the decision to end the show after 14 years, as she explained: ‘I think the number 20 used to sound good until 2020, but the number 20 just seemed like the right time I think for us to take a minute and breathe and everybody slow down a bit … figure out what our next steps are.’
