Kim Kardashian robbery ‘fishy’ says Michael Jackson bodyguard

Hotel du Pourtales where Kim Kardashian was robbedOne of Michael Jackson’s former bodyguards, Matt Fiddes, has raised serious questions about the Kim Kardashian Paris robbery, while the Daily Mail reports that Kim’s bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, who left her alone to attend a nightclub with Kim’s sisters at the time of the robbery, is in debt for more than $1.2 million and filed for bankruptcy 10 weeks earlier.

Fiddes says what happened to Kim could never have happened to Michael Jackson for a variety of reasons.

He questions why the rest of her family was staying at another hotel instead of with her at the Hotel de Pourtalès on rue Tronchet (pictured at left). In a discussion with MailOnline, Fiddes said while he was in Jackson’s employ, the star was never left alone.

He told the British site: “Michael used to tell me that he had never walked down the street alone without security since he was seven years old. Kim should have absolutely not have been left alone without security, it is all very fishy. I would have said she should have had seven or eight security people outside the building and another two or three more trusted people inside. In America, when I was with Michael Jackson we would also have a link to local police and they would come right away if there was an incident.” He added that celebrities carrying millions of dollars of jewelry often have a bodyguard dedicated to protecting the jewelry.

He feels there’s something not quite right about the fact that there were no CCTV cameras at the palatial hotel, saying, “A camera should have been fitted to the bedroom door where she was sleeping along with a sensor. A screen could have been set up in the chief of security’s bedroom, and somebody would have watched it all night. It is standard procedure. There is something not right there.”

The hotel building apparently has deadlocked armored doors with bolts on the inside. As there was no sign of forced entry, he wonders why Kim would have opened the door to five men wearing masks in the middle of the night. He says even if they were claiming to be police, she could have called the Paris police to verify.

After a visit from Kim’s mother and her sisters, Kourtney and Kendall, Kim apparently told her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, to stay with her sisters, who were going to a nightclub. Fiddes says it’s beyond belief that Duvier left Kim alone. He explained: “My take on that is that you have to be willing to take a bullet to protect people and when you get to the stage you can’t, that is when you have to move on. It seems that he has become more of a friend to Kim rather than an employee… He also has his own social media accounts, which [Michael’s bodyguards] would not have been allowed to do at all.”

It turns out there were only three bodyguards in total for all of the Kardashians who were in Paris at the time, despite the earlier terrorist attacks on the city. He thinks this is strange, adding, “When her security were doing their research, they would see Paris has had two major terror attacks recently. She is one of the most high profile celebrities in the world and I might have advised her not to go, especially if it was just to attend some fashion shows. She is a major target, especially as she is a high profile American woman.”

Finally, he says it’s beyond explanation why Kim was allowed to leave France on a private jet for the United States just hours after the robbery, especially when victims are usually asked to stay after a crime has been committed for at least a few days. Without Kim — who was one of only two people to see and hear the robbers — to identify them and to answer questions and possibly review evidence, it makes the case much more difficult for the Paris police to solve.

    Does sound very suspicious. They have really swelled heads, but they had one bodyguard? That’s not even enough for the two at the nightclub, let along leaving one of them alone. I’m guessing the other two bodyguards were with the mother? None of this makes sense.

  2. Leslie Kuretzky • October 6, 2016 @ 10:04 AM

    I still think it was a set up

  3. LondonMiss • October 6, 2016 @ 10:12 AM

    The whole scenario is extremely fishy – these Kardashians literally crave for publicity and will do anything to gain it – don’t believe a single word of this whole incident and only wish that the rest of the world would refrain from giving this family, which is only famous for being famous and possesses no artistic talent whatsoever, any further attention or admiration – there’s absolutely nothing to admire – why don’t they simply pack up their tent and go home and stay home.

  4. Linda • October 6, 2016 @ 10:59 AM

    I keep wondering how she was “locked in the bathroom.” The bathroom door locks from the outside? Just sayin’.

  5. Doggy • October 6, 2016 @ 11:20 AM

    The whole case is very fishy.
    And I can’t believe the thieves would just take the jewelries and not have a fun time with her before they left.

  6. Teresa • October 6, 2016 @ 11:25 AM

    Bogus Robbery. Publicity stunt and they left France immediately because if caught THEY would be in trouble.

  7. Danny • October 6, 2016 @ 11:40 AM

    The whole trailer-trashian/Kanye West circle of people is always looking to stay in the media spotlight all of the time, wether it is for good or bad publicity. It would not surprise me in the least if they set up the whole robbery thing in Paris! Charma will catch up with them eventually!!

  8. James B • October 6, 2016 @ 11:43 AM

    Why would this idiot take millions of dollars worth of jewellery to watch a fashion show anyway. Other than to show “Hey People, Look what I’ve got”.

  9. Lillian • October 6, 2016 @ 12:12 PM

    Perhaps Kanye and Kim have overspent with their lavish lifestyle?
    Maybe the “robbery” was a set up job for insurance money?
    Swelled heads along with boobs and butts.
    hope the gendarmes charge her with mischief.

  10. Lee B • October 6, 2016 @ 12:13 PM

    Was the jewelry ALLEGED to have been stolen insured? Follow the money. Enough said.

  11. CDubya • October 6, 2016 @ 12:18 PM

    Please please expose this family. I will feel sorry for the kids, but let’s let them no longer be faux-celebs any longer.

  12. George • October 6, 2016 @ 12:19 PM

    What a very powerful fishy smell

  13. james stardust • October 6, 2016 @ 12:48 PM

    I believe is a publicity stunt for more media attention.Or they needed the insurance money.the story stinks.Something is not kosher here.The security was tame compared to others.Who brings that kind of wealth to another country and then brags to the media that they have this wealth and the address where they are staying.Open invitation for the wrong kinds of people.Bunch of idiots all of them.Tired of hearing about these nobodies that have become celebrities.They should be careful.Lots of crazies out there.

  14. Jane • October 6, 2016 @ 1:03 PM

    Could be a publicity stunt ?

  15. Patsy Wilson • October 6, 2016 @ 1:04 PM

    Very fishy.bogus, bogus, bogus. Time for people to stop giving these people the attention. They are a very fake family.

  16. Ronald Gagnon • October 6, 2016 @ 1:45 PM

    This a totally full of shit publicity stunt (insurance scam?) that the Karassoles having been pulling off for bad it was not real and she was shot…but she flew home to mommy etal.

  17. Debbie • October 6, 2016 @ 1:45 PM

    Publicity stunt. Obviously

  18. Mark • October 6, 2016 @ 1:51 PM

    I think Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump live in the same world. By the way does she get to write off the loss?

  19. Paul • October 6, 2016 @ 1:56 PM

    I wonder if Kim and the Don share the same accountant?

  20. Dana • October 6, 2016 @ 2:00 PM

    She needs attention and what else is left, please let the world what low life she is! Feel sorry for the kids!!!

  21. Mable • October 6, 2016 @ 2:02 PM

    Just thinking back too earlier this year when her husband said he was broke and wanted people to donate money or buy his crappy overpriced clothing. Now it’s being reported about the paid security dude declaring bankruptcy as well as KW telling him to stay with her sisters? To quote the Baby Herman character from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” -“It all stinks like yesterday’s diapers!!” My feelings too Baby Herman (even though he is a cartoon and totally fictional).

  22. Debbie • October 6, 2016 @ 3:14 PM

    I think the robbery was planned for publicity, why would she be alone with no security. Her and Kanye are ego maniacs.

  23. Claycee • October 6, 2016 @ 4:12 PM

    Does anyone have some “French fries / chips” to go with this stinky fish??

  24. Ethel • October 6, 2016 @ 4:48 PM

    Get rid of her and her family already! All of them!

  25. Matty G • October 6, 2016 @ 6:19 PM

    Ugh! I’m sooooo tired from hearing about the stupid Kardashian’s. Do people actually like them? And Kanye running for president, what a joke.
    Insurance money or publicity doesn’t matter; just ship that entire family off to a deserted island and let the world be a better place for it.

  26. Carl B • October 6, 2016 @ 7:20 PM

    Ryan lochte all over again

  27. Nancy B • October 6, 2016 @ 7:49 PM

    I am so glad!! so many feel the ENTIRE story is a scam!!! All 6 persons with kris houghton as their mother, learned GOLD DIGGING from the moment of conception. such a needy old woman. As if her hair is really that colour. She should act her age, I am a couple yrs behind. Insurance $$$ – HOPE their claim is completely rejected! WHO Needs a ring worth $4,000,00.00 SUPERFICIAL PRIORITIES ARE SO IN THE WRONG PLACE. not screaming this was fairly polite. What is SO remotely special about kendall & the other Jenner, other than who their father/caitlyn is…

  30. Jake • October 6, 2016 @ 8:27 PM

    Why do people watch their lame show? They’re so fake and full of themselves, just from what I’ve seen on social media. It’s way past their 15 minutes, I hope this little escapade opens people’s eyes.

  31. Age A • October 6, 2016 @ 10:48 PM

    Just read through the posts from people who feel this is a scam…not one post to say.” Leave, Kim alone!” Does this tell you something? They will continue to irritate populations because the Planet is screwed…education is poor, kids don’t know what a book is, parents buy their children I-phones when they are 3-4 yrs old and the tv baby sits moronic sheep who do not know better because they see nothing but this kardashian crap…This Planet is f**ked.

  32. liz • October 6, 2016 @ 11:48 PM

    What idiot carries $11.2 million in jewelry around with them. And what insurance company will allow this. I believe this was a publicity stunt in order to get media attention. Whenever we don’t see or hear of her, that’s when she comes up with some sort of publicity stunt or nude picture of herself in order to media attention….PATHETIC.

  33. Jose • October 6, 2016 @ 11:50 PM

    @Linda “I keep wondering how she was “locked in the bathroom.” The bathroom door locks from the outside? Just sayin’.”

    – you are obviously not well traveled. A lot of doors in europe are locked with a key, including bathroom doors, which can be locked from the inside or outside.
    Just sayin’

  34. likeit1 • October 8, 2016 @ 12:05 AM

    Too bad the crooks did not steal Kim’s Big Fat Arse as well.

  35. Snepts • October 8, 2016 @ 2:46 AM

    I’m sure this guy saw many strange things working for Michael Jackson; the question is, why didn’t he do anything???

  36. Olivia • October 9, 2016 @ 12:12 AM

    Insurance fraud. Straight up.
