Kris Jenner has been forced to deny claims she sexual harassed her former bodyguard, after they filed a lawsuit against her.

According to court documents, Marc McWilliams has accused Kris of a “pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and otherwise harassing misconduct”.

Kris’ eldest daughter Kourtney Kardashian is also listed as a defendant in the lawsuit, but she’s not accused of doing “anything improper”.

In response to the lawsuit, the Kardashian-Jenner family’s lawyer Marty Singer told DailyMail.com: “Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian vehemently deny the completely false claims made by former security guard Marc McWilliams.”

“His absurd allegations are clearly fabricated and are contrary to easily confirmed facts. Kris never acted inappropriately toward him.”

“The security company stopped assigning McWilliams to work there after the guard was repeatedly caught sleeping in his car on the job. Significantly, McWilliams never made any complaints to his employer about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim a year later.”

Singer added: “Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper, nor did she do so.”

“When Kris and Kourtney defeat this frivolous lawsuit, they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution.”

In the suit, McWilliams has claimed he was subject to sexual harassment, a hostile work environment, racial discrimination and gender discrimination.

The bodyguard, who reportedly started working for the family in 2017, has alleged Kris “repeatedly and frequently causing her body to come into intimate physical contact” with his body.

He also accused the momager of “exposing portions of her body” to him “in a lewd or suggestive manner.”

McWilliams has claimed he contacted the security company’s HR department, and was subsequently suspended from working with Kris, but still assigned to protect Kourtney.

According to the suit, he was later fired on September 12, 2018.

McWilliams has alleged he endured “harassment, intimidation and otherwise threatening misconduct” after he was fired, in an effort to “dissuade or prevent (him) from bringing any form of action” against the famous family.
