Kris Jenner’s battle with her former bodyguard, Marc McWilliams, will be sorted out privately and away from the public eye, but his lawsuit on her alleged sexual assault offense has made headlines for a while.
Kris Jenner and her former bodyguard, Marc Williams, have been locked in a sexual assault suit for a while. McWilliams, a founding member of the MGM music group, worked with the KarJenner family from 2017 to 2019.
While a LA judge presiding over the case has ruled that both parties should find an arbitrator by January 2023, McWilliams accused the KarJenners twice in two years during the period he was an employee. Here are all the details.
Kris Jenner’s Battle With McWilliams
It all started in 2020 when the security personnel filed a lawsuit against the KarJenner matriarch and demanded $3 million. McWilliams alleged that Jenner was sexually inappropriate when he worked for the family in 2017.
The 45-year-old explained in detail that there have been instances where Kris groped him, exposed herself, and was racially inappropriate. He noted that after he refused her advances, she fired him.
McWilliams still remained with the Kardashians as he worked for Kourtney, but he was finally relieved of his duty in 2019. The security expert also mentioned Kourtney in his lawsuit.
Jenner’s attorney, Marty Singer, opposed all McWilliams’ claims and labeled them false. Singer noted that McWilliams was fired because he was caught sleeping on duty several times. He added that Jenner was never sexually inappropriate.
McWilliams Had More To Say In 2021
The rapper-turned-bodyguard was back in court in February 2021 when he amended his lawsuit to include some detail he said was traumatizing. McWilliams divulged an incident that happened prior to the time he lost his job.
He explained that Jenner wanted to go on a ride in her Bentley on October 22, 2017, and asked him to sit in the front passenger seat. McWilliams explained they drove for a while before the reality TV mogul started saying sexually inappropriate things.
He stated that the mom-of-6 made sexual advances and rubbed her palm on his thigh and also close to his groin. McWilliams’s explanation and claims in the lawsuit read:
“McWilliams was shocked and offended by the uninvited and overtly sexual contact by Jenner and attempted to shift away from her groping.”
The lawsuit also read that the former bodyguard was “emotionally distressed” by the incident. He was also said to have never consented to Jenner’s alleged advances each time it happened.
How Will Kris Jenner’s Battle With McWilliams Be Solved?
With the back and forths going on between the two parties since 2020, LA judge Armen Tamzarian ruled that the two parties had 12 months to find an arbitrator and reach a consensus.
This ultimately means that McWilliams and Jenner will resolve the case in private. It also means that much of what will be decided will not get to the public. During the ruling, both McWilliams and Jenner were absent in court.
More details from the lawsuit showed that McWilliams’ alleged experience with Jenner caused him physical and mental pain. He was said also to experience loss of sleep, depression among other health issues.
It is important to note that while McWilliams mentioned Kourtney Kardashian in the lawsuit, his sexual assault claims were directed at Jenner. The former rapper claimed that the sexual misconduct was frequent, and he complained to the security company in charge of his contract.
More On The Accusations
However, nothing was done about the situation. McWilliams, who is 20-years-younger than Jenner, noted that the situation got worse after he was fired. He shared that he endured harassment, intimidation, and other threatening misconduct.
According to him, it was all in a bid to dissuade him from taking the matter up. Singer opposed all of these claims, stating that McWilliams’ allegations were “contrary tonessily confirmed facts.” He added that the bodyguard never made a formal complaint of Jenner’s misconduct to his employer.
Before his foray into a security-related career, McWilliams formed MGM (Musically Gifted Men) with his now-disgraced pal R.Kelly. If McWilliams and Jenner are unable to get an arbitrator before the earlier stated date, they will most probably return to the courtroom.
