Reports: Kim Kardashian, Kanye West fire bodyguard

Kim Kardashian is cleaning house after her Paris robbery a month ago.

According to Entertainment Tonight and Us Weekly, she and Kanye West have parted ways with their longtime bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, who accompanied Kardashian on the Paris trip. The German bodyguard began working with West in 2012 and Kardashian in 2013.

The night Kardashian was robbed, Duvier was not with her, having been dispatched to attend a club with Kardashian's sisters after the reality TV star had retired for the evening inside her 19th-century luxury residence.

With Kardashian held at gunpoint, thieves stole a jewelry box containing valuables worth nearly $7 million as well as a ring worth $4.5 million. Video has been released of five suspects approaching Kardashian's hotel by foot and bicycle, and leaving 49 minutes later. No arrests have been made by French police.

Prior to the robbery, Duvier was constantly by her side, leading Kardashian to joke about his presence on Instagram. "This guy is always in my shot!" she wrote on Instagram, posting a paparazzi picture during Paris Fashion Week.

Duvier also helped protect Kardashian when a serial celebrity accoster, the so-called "Ukrainian prankster," attempted to assault her as she was entering a restaurant in Paris.

The bodyguard deleted all social media mentions of her as part of her intensified security precautions in early October.

Since the robbery, Kardashian has dropped off social media, but recently resumed filming her reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
