Reality TV star Kim, 35, was subjected to a terrifying ordeal in the early hours of Monday morning when five gunmen disguised as police officers and wearing ski masks to hide their faces bound and gagged her in the luxury Hotel de Pourtalès.
Mother-of-two Kim had been left alone in the suite while bodyguard Duvier went to high-end nightclub L’Arc with her sisters Kourtney and Kendall Jenner.
Kim Kardashian’s personal bodyguard Pascal Duvier filed for company BANKRUPTCY ten weeks ago with debts of €1MILLION and he’s now deleted all references to her off of his social media
Kim Kardashian’s bodyguard has deleted all references to her off of his social media accounts as MailOnline can reveal that he filed for bankruptcy for his German security company ten weeks ago with debts of more than €1million.
Pascal Duvier, 43, who was in a nightclub when the star fell victim to a £8.5million heist as she slept alone in her Paris hotel, lodged a claim for company insolvency at Heidelberg administrative court on July 22 this year.
His German ProtectSecurity firm, which has run security for a host of stars from Kim’s husband Kanye West to the Black Eyed Peas, has racked up debts totalling €1,093,518 (£961,296).
The insolvency lawyer on the case told MailOnline: ‘There is so much debt. There are many claimants. I cannot say the exact number. Lots.’
Bodyguard Duvier arrived at the flat two minutes after the gangsters escaped on bicycles with her £3.5million engagement ring – apparently after being alerted by a text message from Kim’s best friend Simone Harouche.
Duvier, who has vowed to track down the attackers, has faced claims he left the star exposed by failing to secure the flat in his absence.
Kim has reportedly told friends that she does not blame him for the crime. There is no suggestion Duvier had any involvement or that he is under any suspicion.
By Wednesday afternoon, Duvier had deleted all references that he had worked for Kim from his social media accounts. That included photos of the reality TV star and pictures of him while he was working as her bodyguard.
Duvier has not been fired by Kim or Kanye and according to TMZ, sources say deleting the content from his accounts is a safety measure to block possible thieves from figuring out the couple’s whereabouts.
