Kris Jenner is set to work out a deal with her former bodyguard to finally settle his sexual assault lawsuit against her. Per Daily Mail, Jenner, 66, and accuser Marc McWilliams have agreed to take his case to private arbitration, meaning any compromise between them will be hashed out behind closed doors.
In a shocking accusation, McWilliams, 45, accuses Jenner of sexual harassment and of groping his crotch when he was working for the family in 2017. Jenner has been dating boyfriend Corey Gamble, 41, since 2014.
McWilliams first sued Jenner in 2020 for $3 million, claiming she grabbed his butt, exposed herself to him and had him fired when he rejected her advances. Last February, he accused Jenner of sexually assaulting him while they were out in her Bentley back in 2017. McWilliams said of the “particularly shocking” incident that Jenner ordered him to sit in the front seat, and as she drove, “She began making comments to plaintiff (McWilliams) of a flirtatious and overtly sexual nature,” his attorney Sean Novak said in legal documents.
“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,” the legal docs continued. “She then caused her right hand to move up the upper, inner left thigh and groin, while caressing McWilliams. McWilliams was shocked and offended by the uninvited and overtly sexual contact by Jenner and attempted to shift away from her groping. As he moved his body away from the offensive sexual contact, Jenner’s right hand come into contact with McWilliams’ inner groin and genital area.”

McWilliams, who worked for the famous family between 2017 and 2019, said he was “emotionally distressed” by Jenner’s “outrageous and uninvited” actions, which “at no time did he consent to,” the filing states. The suit further claimed that McWilliams had suffered physical and mental pain, illness, loss of sleep, depression and other health issues as a result of Jenner’s alleged behavior.
McWilliams listed the following of what Jenner “repeatedly and frequently” subjected him to:
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 also alleged racial discrimination, including, “pervasive and cruel mockery, harassment, belittling, and otherwise humiliating mistreatment by defendants due to (his) race.”
McWilliams is seeking a jury trial and $3 million in damages. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Armen Tamzarian gave both parties a year to find a private judge to come up with a settlement.
After McWilliams filed his lawsuit, Jenner’s attorney, Marty Singer, released a statement of Jenner denying 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.”
