The Kardashian bodyguard who sued family matriarch Kris Jenner for sexual assault, claiming she grabbed his crotch and exposed herself to him, has dropped his $3million lawsuit against her.
Marc McWilliams – who is 20 years younger than Jenner, 67 – has asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to dismiss the case ‘with prejudice,’ meaning it would be final and could not be retried.
Although there are no details in the new document McWilliams has filed, it’s most likely that a cash settlement has been reached.

McWilliams, who worked as a bodyguard for the Kardashian clan between 2017 and 2019, claims Jenner once groped him and made suggestive comments when they were out in her Bentley (pictured in 2014) in October 2017
The famous momager, pictured with daughter Khloe Kardashian last month, was accused of sexually assaulting her former bodyguard when he was still working for the family in 2017
In his lawsuit – filed in September 2020 – he recounted a ‘particularly shocking’ incident the morning of October 22, 2017 when Jenner wanted to go out in her luxury Bentley 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,’ said his attorney Sean Novak 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.
‘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 was ’emotionally distressed’ by Jenner’s ‘outrageous and uninvited ‘ actions, which, ‘at no time did he consent to,’ said Novak, who added that as a result of Jenner’s behavior, his client had suffered ‘physical and mental pain….illness….loss of sleep, depression’ and other health issues.
McWilliams, 47, a one-time rapper turned Kardashian security guard, claimed in his original complaint that Jenner was ‘repeatedly and frequently causing her body to come into intimate physical contact’ with his body
Although there are no details of a settlement in the new document McWilliams has filed, it’s most likely that a cash settlement has been reached.

Jenner’s 44 year-old daughter Kourtney Kardashian was also named in the lawsuit but it was her mother who subjected McWilliams to a ‘pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and otherwise harassing misconduct,’ he claimed in court documents.
According to McWilliams’ Kris was ‘repeatedly and frequently causing her body to come into intimate physical contact’ with his body.
Among her ‘inappropriate’ and ‘sexually suggestive’ behavior, he listed:-
*’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 – seeking a jury trial and $3 million in damages – 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 also alleged racial discrimination, including, ‘pervasive and cruel mockery, harassment, belittling, and otherwise humiliating mistreatment by defendants due to (his) race.’
The Kardashian-Jenner’s reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians – which catapulted their careers – ended its 20th and final season last June after a 13-year run
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 in September 2019, said McWilliams – whose lawsuit also alleged 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, Jenner’s attorney, Marty Singer, trashed the claims in a statement to DailyMail.com, saying: ‘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’.

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.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the series which catapulted the family into the spotlight after it launched in 2007, endured for 20 seasons till 2021 and last year the family launched a new TV reality show called The Kardashians.
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 43, Khloe, 39, and son Rob, 36. 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, 26 and Kylie, 24
The couple split up in 2013 and divorced in 2015, the same year Bruce publicly declared himself as a transgender woman, renaming himself Caitlyn Jenner.
