Kim Kardashian's bodyguard breaks silence after armed robbery

Pascal Duvier also refused to confirm or deny whether he was still working for Kim and husband Kanye West following the incident last October (16).

Kim Kardashian's bodyguard Pascal Duvier doesn't "waste his time" worrying about how things may have been different if he had been present when the reality star was robbed at gunpoint.

The 36-year-old mother-of-two was bound and gagged by a gang of masked men at her apartment in Paris, France, last October (16). Pascal was in another area of the city at a nightclub with Kim's sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner at the time, but in his first interview since the incident, he insists he doesn't worry himself by thinking about how the situation may have unfolded differently had he been there.

"I don't like to waste my time on thoughts about 'what if' or 'what could have been if…'," he said during the interview with Fairfax Media. "Many good and many bad things happen. Life is a chain reaction of decisions and actions you take, you can't choose only to change certain things. Every change affects everything."

Following the incident, it was reported that Kim and husband Kanye West had organised a complete overhaul of their security, which included getting rid of Pascal.

However, he refused to confirm or deny the allegations, insisting: "This is a question that comes up often and to be honest it doesn't matter if I do or I don't (work for Kim and Kanye)... The client should be the one answering that question.

"(I am looking) forward to new challenges, offers and tours with existing and new clients."

Pascal's interview came after the statement Kim gave to police at the time of the incident was published by editors at French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.

Her statement gives a first-hand account of the traumatising raid, during which she was ordered to hand over her $4 million (£3.3 million) diamond engagement ring - a gift from Kanye.

"I heard a noise at the door, like, footsteps, and I shouted to ask who was there, but no one answered," she recalled.

"I called my bodyguard at 2.56am. Then, beyond the sliding doors, I saw two people arrive with the gentleman from reception, and he was tied up. Both men were hooded, one had a ski mask and he had a cap and a jacket with 'police' on it. The second man had the same 'police' clothes, but did not have any ski mask... It was the one with the ski mask who stayed with me (during the robbery)."

Kim went on to detail how she was tied up with "plastic cables" and had tape wrapped around her hands, her mouth, and her legs, before she was moved to the bathroom and placed in the bathtub.
