As Radar readers know, Spears, 37, has been in the spotlight since the 1990s and has needed protection ever since! Photos of the pop singer's early career show that Yemini was protecting the singer back when her two sons, Sean and Jayden, were just toddlers.
Meanwhile, Kris, 63, and her ever-expanding family are in need of just as much protection! On Oct. 3, 2016, fans were shocked when a gang of thieves broke into Kim Kardashian’s luxurious Paris hotel room and robbed her at gunpoint. The frightening situation occurred while Kim’s longtime security guard was out guarding Kourtney Kardashian and friend Simone Harrouche at a club.
“I heard a noise at the door, like footsteps, and I shouted, asking, ‘Who’s there?’” Kim told police at the time. “No one answered. I called my bodyguard at 2:56 a.m. Through the door, I saw two people arrive, plus the night man who was tied up.”
As Radar reported, Kim’s $4 million diamond ring was stolen in the heist as one of the thieves flashed a gun in front of the reality star. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was then tied up and had tape placed over her mouth before being taken into the bath tub.
Pricey Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings were also stolen in the robbery. Since the ordeal, the entire KarJenner clan has beefed up security.
According to the company website, Black Box Security prides itself as “one of the most respected companies for executive protection, residential security, international travel, and high-profile events.” Check out Radar’s gallery below to learn why the seasoned bodyguard has switched up his celebrity roster!
By Her Side
Yemini has been photographed walking behind Spears for over a decade.
The bodyguard's business is comprised of bodyguards with a combined 50 years of experience in the field of security and defense, the website claims. Shown here, the hunk appears to be in a hurry as he's photographed alongside Spears and one of her sons.
On The Move
An insider close to Spears told Radar that the experienced bodyguard and his team are “total bada**es.”
But on Saturday, July 20, Jenner stepped out in Woodland Hills, Calif. to attend daughter Kylie’s KylieSkin truck launch – and Yemini was by her side!
“Kris is smart to have them protecting her and her famous family,” the source said of Yemini and his team.
Black Box Security bodyguards have experience in the military, including the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy and the Air Force.
The source explained that Yemini no longer guards Spears because she “doesn’t travel like she used to.”
