Kris Jenner and daughter, Kourtney Kardashian, have denied sexual harassment claims made by their former bodyguard, Marc McWilliams.
McWilliams - who is believed to have been hired by momager Kris three years ago - has reportedly claimed that Kris made "lewd suggestive, sexual, sexist, racist, homophobic and otherwise discriminatory comments at him and his co-workers."
According to TMZ, McWilliams - who is suing for unspecified damages - claimed he had experienced "a pattern of unwanted and unwelcome sexual advances and other harassing misconduct" and also accused Kris of giving him massages without his consent, the site claims.
Now, Kris' lawyer, Marty Singer, has spoken out about the allegations, telling TMZ in a statement: "Kris categorically denies ever behaving inappropriately toward Marc McWilliams.
"The security guard worked outside the house and he never even went into Kris' house.
"Kris had very little interaction with him. After the guard was repeatedly caught sleeping in his car while on the job, the security company was asked not to assign him to work there in the future.
"The guard never made any complaints to his employer about Kris until contriving this ludicrous claim.
"Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper with the guard, nor did she do so.
"It is outrageous that anyone can sue anyone in America and believe there is no recourse when pursuing fictional and meritless claims. When Kris and Kourtney defeat this ridiculous, frivolous lawsuit they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution."
It's certainly been a dramatic few weeks for the Kardashians, after they revealed last month that the reality show, which has been on our screens for 14 years, will come to an end next year.
In a statement, Kim said: "To our amazing fans. It is with heavy hearts that we've made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
"After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who've watched us for all of these years - through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children.
"We'll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we've met along the way."
