The former Kardashian bodyguard suing Kris Jenner for sexual harassment is now accusing the famous momager of sexual assault and battery, claiming she fondled his crotch area in 2017.
Marc McWilliams, a one-time rapper turned security guard for the famous clan, filed a $3million lawsuit against Jenner last year claiming she grabbed his butt, exposed herself to him, and had him fired when he rebuffed her advances.
In an amended complaint filed at Los Angeles Superior Court this week McWilliams added to his allegations, claiming Jenner sexually assaulted him while they were out driving in her luxury Bentley almost four years ago.
In a statement to DailyMail.com Friday, attorney Michael Rhodes said Jenner ‘categorically rejects these new baseless claims’, adding that she is yet to be served with the legal action.
McWilliams, 44, who worked for the family in 2017 and 2018, in court papers described a ‘particularly shocking’ incident the morning of October 22, 2017 when Jenner wanted to go out in her car and ordered him to sit in the front passenger seat.
As Jenner drove, ‘She began making comments to plaintiff [McWilliams] of a flirtatious and overtly sexual nature,’ his attorney Sean Novak said in the filing obtained by DailyMail.com.

Jenner, 65, has been dating Corey Gamble (pictured together in February 2020) since 2014
‘Without warning, Jenner placed her right hand on the inside upper left thigh and groin area of McWilliams in a manner that was overtly sexually offensive.
‘She then caused her right hand to move up the upper, inner left thigh and groin, while caressing McWilliams.’
The complaint claims McWilliams was ‘shocked and offended’ by Jenner’s sexual advances and attempted to shift away from her.
But as he moved his body away, he claims, Jenner’s right hand came into contact with his ‘inner groin and genital area.’
McWilliams was ‘shocked, offended and emotionally distressed’ by Jenner’s ‘outrageous and uninvited’ actions, which ‘at no time did he consent to,’ the complaint states.
As a result of Jenner’s behavior, McWilliams suffered ‘physical and mental pain….illness….loss of sleep, depression’ and other health issues,’ Novak wrote.
The filing comes five months after McWilliams first sued his former boss for harassment, racial discrimination and other ‘outrageous’ and ‘despicable’ acts.
His original complaint claimed Kris was ‘repeatedly and frequently causing her body to come into intimate physical contact’ with his body.
Kim’s 41 year-old sister Kourtney Kardashian is also named in the lawsuit but it’s her mother who subjected McWilliams to a ‘pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and otherwise harassing misconduct,’ court documents claim.
The 44-year-old described feeling ‘shocked and offended’ by Jenner’s alleged actions. He previously said Jenner was ‘repeatedly and frequently causing her body to come into intimate physical contact’ with his body
In an amended complaint filed at Los Angeles Superior Court this week, McWilliams added to his original allegations, claiming Jenner sexually assaulted him while they were out in her luxury Bentley
But according to Rhodes, ‘This lawsuit, filed back in September, has yet to be served on Ms. Jenner and involves events alleged to have occurred more than two years ago. The allegations are not only wrong and scandalous, but seem designed to coerce Ms. Jenner into silence via a settlement. This will not happen.’
‘Rather, Ms. Jenner fully intends to seek vindication at trial, armed with evidence that will show the falsity of the claims being made. Following that, Ms. Jenner will pursue all of her available legal remedies to protect her good name and reputation and to hold those who brought this suit accountable.’
Among Jenner’s ‘inappropriate’ and ‘sexually suggestive’ behavior, McWilliams listed:
Daughter Kourtney Kardashian is also named in the lawsuit brought on last year. Neither Kris nor Kourtney – or McWilliams – showed up Wednesday for a hearing at LA Superior Court
- ‘Massaging (his) neck, shoulders, arms and back without his consent;
- ‘Causing her hand to rest on (his) thigh and groin;
- ‘Causing her pelvis to rub against (his)back ad/or rear end without his consent or approval;
- ‘Causing her hands to come into contact with (his) rear end without his consent nor approval;
- ‘Exposing portions of her body to (him) in a lewd or suggestive manner’
McWilliams – who is seeking a jury trial – told Jenner that her behavior was unwelcome and asked her to stop, he said in court documents.
‘But Jenner ignored all such requests and persisted with this inappropriate misconduct.’
McWilliams – who is African American – is also alleging racial discrimination, including, ‘pervasive and cruel mockery, harassment, belittling, and otherwise humiliating mistreatment by defendants due to (his) race.’
He claims he complained to his security company employer’s human resources department, but he contended, he was again ignored.
He was suspended from working with Kris, but continued working for Kourtney, till he was fired on September 12, 2018, said McWilliams – whose lawsuit also alleges wrongful termination against his employers, David Shield Security and Armor Protection Services.
McWilliams claimed that after his firing, he endured ‘harassment, intimidation and otherwise threatening misconduct in an effort to dissuade or prevent (him) from bringing any form of action against defendants for their unlawful misconduct.’
After McWilliams filed his lawsuit last September, Jenner’s attorney, Marty Singer, denied the claims in a statement to DailyMail.com: ‘Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian vehemently deny the completely false claims made by former security guard Marc.
‘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.
‘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.’

The Kardashian-Jenner clan in September announced Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which capulted the family into the spotlight, was ending its 13-year run
McWilliams is a founding member of the late 80s group MGM – Musically Gifted Men – which he started with his close friend, disgraced rap star R. Kelly.
After 20 seasons on the TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the series which catapulted the family into the spotlight after its debut in 2007, is ending this month.
Kris’ first taste of fame came during her first marriage to LA lawyer Robert Kardashian when he was one of the ‘dream team’ of top attorneys who won an acquittal for O.J. Simpson at the end of his notorious murder trial in the mid 90s.
She and Robert had four children, daughters Kourtney, Kim, now 40, Khloe, 36, and son Rob, 33. They divorced in 1991 and Robert died of cancer in 2003.
In April 1991 – only a month after her divorce from Kardashian – Kris married her second husband, ex Olympic gold medal winning athlete, Bruce Jenner and they had two children, Kendall, 25 and Kylie, 23.
The couple split up in 2013 and divorced in 2015, the same year Bruce publicly declared himself as a transgender woman, who now goes by Caitlyn Jenner.
