Almost three days on from her shocking Paris robbery, Kim Kardashian West’s bodyguard Pascal Duvier has deleted all mention of his famous client from his social media accounts.

But according to TMZ, Duvier has not been fired by the reality star but rather deleted Instagram pictures, tagged tweets and mentions of his famous ward to help avoid any further security breaches in the future.

Kim and Kanye "like the guy and trust him implicitly," TMZ writes, adding "Pascal's had Kim's back since 2012."

Duvier has posted a number of photos of himself with Kardashian West over the years and is often referenced in her social media posts, with the reality star tweeting, "My security @PascalDuvier is a G," late last week.

In the days following the robbery, Duvier has suffered a firestorm of criticism for not being present at 35-year-old Kardashian West's Rue Tronchet apartment when she was held at gunpoint, gagged, thrown into a bathtub and robbed of $14 million worth of jewellery in the early hours of Monday morning.

But according to sources close to the family, Duvier was not off-duty or partying as some reports have suggested but rather guarding sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, who had decided to stay out while Kardashian West opted for bed.

Three kilometres away at L'Arc nightclub, Duvier returned to Kardashian West's apartment within minutes of being alerted to the crime and has since vowed to find the five masked criminals who robbed his client.

"Kim is not blaming Pascal," an alleged friend of the mother-of-two told Us magazine.

"She felt completely safe at the Paris apartment and doesn't believe this is his fault in any way," adding that up until Monday, Kim had always felt safe being on her own in the Hotel de Pourtalès apartment.

Moving forward, huge changes will be made, the source says.

“There will be a massive security detail in place for the future."

The one thing that's set to stay, though? The burly guard who has vowed to hunt down the criminal gang.

“Pascal is staying,” the source said finally.
