Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West recently let go of their main bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, following Kim's robbery in Paris, France, two sources tell ET. Duvier, 43, had been working with Kim since 2013, and with Kanye since 2012.

While Duvier was with Kim in France during Paris Fashion Week, he was with her older sister, Kourtney Kardashian -- who was enjoying a night out with their younger sister, Kendall Jenner -- at the time of the robbery.

"Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye," one source tells ET. "It's a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn't take any more chances."

ET has reached out to Duvier for comment.

Last month, a source close to Kim told ET that she and Kanye were definitely rethinking their security measures after the terrifying incident in Paris. "Kim and Kanye are reassessing their security detail now. Kanye is freaking out -- this really threw him for a loop," the source said. "There will be a lot of things that change now in terms of security, especially with the children [3-year-old North and 11-month-old Saint]."

However, Duvier was still with both Kim and Kanye after the robbery last month, when they stepped out of the New York City apartment they had been staying in, en route to Los Angeles. Duvier was spotted putting luggage into a black vehicle, dressed in all black and sporting his usual fanny pack.

ET exclusively spoke to the hotel concierge who was held at gunpoint alongside Kim, Abdulrahman, last month, who said he didn't blame Duvier for the incident.

"They have guns, you can't move," he said about the robbers, adding that Duvier would have been easily outnumbered by the five men. "He can't do anything. He can't."

He also told ET that a phone call from Duvier at the time of the robbery was what may have ended the robbery abruptly.

"When [Kim's] phone rang, I take it and saw Pascal -- the name of the bodyguard -- and I told the guy, 'You know who is calling now? He is her bodyguard, and if she didn't answer him now, he will come with police.'"

Abdulrahman says the robbers fled shortly after, and Duvier returned to the hotel.

Duvier is the CEO and Chairman for Protect Security, and has plenty of experience working with celebrities. According to his LinkedIn account, his client list includes The Black Eyed Peas, Ciara, David Guetta and Frank Ocean. He has been to Iceland, Cuba and Armenia with Kim and her family, and at times can be spotted on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Just days before Kim's robbery, the mother of two publicly praised Duvier for taking down notorious prankster Vitalii Sediuk, when Sediuk lunged at her while she was walking into L'Avenue restaurant in Paris.

"My security @PascalDuvier is a G," she tweeted.

Meanwhile, Kim is slowly returning to public life after taking a big step back from social media. Kim attended Kendall's 21st birthday party at celeb hot spot Delilah restaurant on Wednesday night, and recently set the date for her first official appearance since the robbery. Kim is scheduled to join makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic in Dubai on Jan. 13, for a makeup tutorial advertised as The Masterclass DUBAI.
