Kim Kardashian's Bodyguard Was with Kendall and Kourtney When Kim Was Robbed at Gunpoint
A source tells PEOPLE it was perfectly routine that Kim Kardashian West‘s bodyguard Pascal Duvier was with her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner as they partied in Paris when Kim was robbed at gunpoint in her room at the No Address Hotel.
“It wouldn’t be that strange for Pascal to be dispatched to be with Kourtney or the other family members once Kim was ‘safely’ in her residence,” a source close to the family tells PEOPLE. “And he regularly provides security for the whole family – not just Kim.”
Duvier was photographed accompanying Jenner, 20, and Kourtney, 37, as they left The Peninsula Paris with Hailey Baldwin and Kim’s assistant-slash-BFF Stephanie Sheppard, among others.
Meanwhile, Kim was back at the hotel, FaceTiming with brother Rob Kardashianand his fiancée Blac Chyna to congratulate them on their baby shower around about 2:30 a.m. – minutes before armed robbers broke into her hotel room.
One former guest at No Address Hotel tells PEOPLE that despite the exclusive clientele, there appears to be little security on site.
“As I recall, there’s a receptionist downstairs who buzzes you through the door in the courtyard and a nightman and that’s pretty much all you see of security,” the former guest says.
Meanwhile, Kourtney and Kendall were out in Paris nightclub L’Arc when they got word of the incident involving Kim, a source tells PEOPLE.
Kendall was pictured rushing back to Kim’s hotel about 4:30 a.m. after learning of the news.
A group of five, armed masked men who were dressed as police were involved in the robbery, Reuters reported, and gained access to Kim’s private apartment after threatening the building’s concierge with a weapon, handcuffing him and forcing him to open the residence, according to CNN. Two of the men entered Kim’s room, held her at gunpoint, bound her hands and feet with tape and then locked her in the bathroom before making off with over $10 million in jewelry.
In addition, Kim’s purse, two cell phones and 1,000 euros were lifted, police sources told BFM TV.
Sources told PEOPLE that Kim left her hotel in two vans with a police escort after giving her statement to investigators. She returned to the U.S. on Monday morning.
Ahead of the incident, Kim and Kourtney attended a private dinner hosted by designer Azzedine Alaia on Sunday evening.
In other photos with Kourtney and Kendall, the group could be seen leaving The Peninsula with bodyguard Duvier in tow.
Earlier in the week, Duvier tackled notorious prankster Vitalli Sediuk after he attempted to grab Kim in the French city.
Kim joked on Twitter earlier Sunday, “This guy is always in my shot,” posting an image of herself flanked by Duvier.
