Kim Kardashian has allegedly fired her bodyguard Pascal Duvier, after turning up at her half-sister’s 21st birthday party with three off-duty police officers instead. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star reportedly paid the cops $100 per hour (£80) for each of the men, and she was also seen with her sister’s bodyguards.
According to an insider close to Kim, ‘the decision wasn’t personal but rather a complete overhauling of security after the incident’. Speaking to Us Weekly, the source admitted that Kim had always felt comfortable and ‘safe at the apartment by herself’ and ‘doesn’t believe this is [Pascal’s] fault in any way’.

On the night of the terrifying Paris heist in October, which saw Kim bound and gagged while masked robbers stole over £12 million worth of jewellery, Pascal was with Kourtney and Kendall at L’Arc Nightclub.
‘Kim is not blaming Pascal,’ the source added.
Pascal began working for the pair in 2012 and continued working with them in New York when they returned from France after the ordeal. In recent weeks however, Kim and Kanye have begun to reassess their security detail.
‘Kanye is freaking out – this really threw him for a loop. There will be a lot of things that change now in terms of security, especially with the children,’ a source told Entertainment Tonight a few weeks back.
