Two years after Kim Kardashian was horrifically robbed at gunpoint in Paris, the reality star’s insurance company has filed a AUD$8,604,197 lawsuit against her former security team who were hired to keep her protected.
According to documents obtained by PEOPLE, ex Kar-Jenner family bodyguard Pascal Duvier and his security and protection company Protect Security are being sued by American International Group (AIG).
The lawsuit states $8,604,197 is the same amount the insurance company paid Kardashian West for the jewellery that was stolen from Kim.
Court documents also claim that Duvier and Protect Security “negligently, carelessly, and/or recklessly performed their protection, security, monitoring, inspection, and/or surveying of” Kardashian as well as the Hotel.
Duvier and Protect Security “should have known that they were required to protect, secure, monitor, inspect, and/or survey … using the skill and care reasonably expected of those in this industry.”

The mother-of-three was staying at the No Address Hotel on October 3 2016.
Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West parted ways with Duvier one month after the incident.
“Pascal no longer works for Kim and Kanye, but he wasn’t fired. He instead reassigned himself to another family for professional reasons. Pascal thought that he did let down Kim and didn’t do his job properly in Paris. They all agreed that it was better for Kim and Kanye to hire a completely new security team,” a source said at the time.
