Who Is Pascal Duvier? Kim Kardashian's Bodyguard Has Protected The Biggest Names In The Biz
After the terrifying incident of Kim Kardashian being robbed at gunpoint in her Paris apartment, many people turned to question the whereabouts of her personal security. Being the massive star Kardashian is, having a bodyguard is a necessity and the man who seems to be Kardashian's "main" bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, has been pictured by her side for almost three years now. Reports surfaced that Duvier was out with her sisters Kourtney and Kendall Jenner on the night of the robbery, but he is ready and willing to do whatever it takes to find the perpetrators. In a statement to Daily Mail, Duvier said,
"The events that occurred in Paris was one of the most sickening things I have seen or heard. We have tips and leads and we will find you. That I promise you… you messed with the wrong one."
Alright, so this man really takes his job seriously, but who is Duvier? That is definitely the question on many peoples' lips considering his primary client is one of the most famous women in the world. In the wake of his absence in this scary event, many have questioned Duvier's efficiency, but Duvier is a dedicated and highly respected bodyguard who has worked with the biggest clients in the industry, and according to reports, Kardashian is not blaming him for the robbery.
He Has A Military Background
In an interview with High Snobiety, Duvier, who is German, shared that his father was a boxer, and due to his own big size, he was urged to get into judo. And as to how he got into bodyguarding, he said, "I started in the German army. At the time it was mandatory to enlist in Germany and I thought it was a good idea to do something for your country."
He Worked With Kanye West First
Duvier's LinkedIn lists him as working with West in 2012 during one of his tours and later joining Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2013. His profile also lists a who's who of celebrities he has worked for, including Ciara, the Black Eyed Peas, Lana del Rey, Katy Perry, and more.
He Is CEO Of His Own Security Company
His LinkedIn also reveals that he is the CEO of ProtectSecurity, which provides security personnel for high-profile clients.
He Will Not Give Kim A Message From You
Prior to making his Twitter account private, Duvier's pinned tweet proved that he is very serious about his client's privacy. It read, "Who ever asks me to deliver a message to a client of mine will be muted and blocked. I'm sick of that sh*t!! I'm not a messenger!!"
He Will Protect Kim At Any Cost
When Kardashian was attacked by a man in Paris, Duvier immediately subdued him and made sure he posed no threat to his client. Just one look at his quick reflexes means anyone should be very wary of messing with him.
While Duvier was unfortunately not by Kardashian's side during her late night attack, I think she knows that he would be ready to do whatever it takes to have her back with his skill and experience.
