Kris Jenner was sued for sexual assault in January 2022 after she was accused of groping her former bodyguard. One year later, the pair have still been unable to agree to a settlement, forcing a judge to grant them another 13 months to sort out the sticky legal situation.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and her ex-security guard Marc McWilliams now have until February 14, 2024, to hammer out the details, with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Armen Tamzarian warning them that he expects "arbitration to be done by then."
As Radar previously reported, McWilliams accused Jenner of grabbing his butt, exposing herself to him, massaging his neck and shoulders without his consent and making "lewd suggestive, sexual, [and] racist" remarks to him while he was under her employment from 2017 to 2019.
One particularly wild incident allegedly occurred in October 2017 after the famed momager reportedly asked him to sit in the passenger seat of her Bentley and began making flirtatious comments to him.
"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," McWilliams' lawyer Sean Novak in the court filing.
"McWilliams was shocked and offended by the uninvited and overtly sexual contact by Jenner and attempted to shift away from her groping," the statement continued. "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."
The ex bodyguard also stated that when he finally complained about the inappropriate behavior he'd been allegedly subjected to, he was fired from the job. He is now seeking $3 million in the bombshell lawsuit.

Despite the shocking claims, Jenner and her legal team have denied all accusations of unprofessional conduct. Her lawyer also noted that the 67-year-old claimed McWilliams had never even gone "into the home" itself and was eventually let go for being caught asleep during work hours.
"His absurd allegations are clearly fabricated and are contrary to easily confirmed facts. Kris never acted inappropriately toward him," Jenner's attorney Marty Singer said at the time. "The security company stopped assigning McWilliams to work there after the guard was repeatedly caught sleeping in his car on the job."
