Duvier, with is 6ft 4in and was recorded as 240lbs in court papers, wrote a five-page response in which he admitted that he 'swiped' her with his hand.

Anti-abuse: Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner both took part in a provocative campaign against domestic abuse in 2015. Duvier usually guards Kim but was with Kendall when the robbery happened.
Those potential clients included Kim Kardashian who is thought to have hired him around the same time Glenda Duvier got the restraining order.
The disclosure raises further issus about Duvier's suitability to be her bodyguard as DailyMail.com has already revealed how he recently filed for bankruptcy in Germany, where he is originally from.
Kim is still recovering from the robbery, which happened at her apartment in Paris.
She was tied up and gagged as thieves stole $11m worth of jewelry after holding a gun to her head, sources have said.
The haul reportedly included the $4.5 million ring given to her by her husband Kanye West.
Questions have been raised over Duvier's role that night as he was not by Kim's side. Instead he was at a club with her sisters her sisters Kourtney and Kendall Jenner, though Kim has said she does not blame him.
Court documents from the Los Angeles Superior Court obtained by DailyMail.com reveal that Miss Duvier, now 38, applied for a TRO, or temporary restraining order against Duvier.
She suggested there was more than one episode of abuse and wrote that the 'latest instance' happened on September 19 2013 when her three children and two friends were home.
The court document states: 'He hit me in the face. I fell to the floor and passed out. The kids saw and one of my friends'.
Under injuries she wrote: 'Left cheek is swollen, headache persists.' The police were called to the incident.

Admission: How Pascal Duvier told the court he had 'swiped' at his then wife during the altercation at the center of the application for a restraining order
Restrained; The court order against Pascal Duvier issued after his wife applied for the restraint. It would have shown up on any employer's background check
No guns: The court document which made clear the bodyguard was banned from carrying firearms under Californian law.
The documents show that Miss Duvier demanded that Duvier stay 100 yards away from the two family dogs, Tango and Charlie - and requested that she be given possession of the BMW X6 car they owned.
Duvier filed a five-page response in which he claimed that Miss Duvier was telling lies and that their marriage had collapsed because she had cheated on him.
He also said that her excessive drinking and depression had led them to break up.
Duvier wrote that he moved to America from Germany so that they could make a 'fresh start' but it did not work out.
He wrote: 'Through her false allegations (she) hopes to destroy the two things that are important to me - my relationship with my children and my career'.
Duvier said that if potential clients were able to see the TRO on his record it would make them less likely to hire him and harm his reputation.
He complained that Miss Duvier is 'using our children to get back at me' and since the order was put into effect he was not able to talk to them via Facetime when he was away for work.
On the incident itself he wrote that Miss Duvier had been drinking when he got home from a job overseas and he discovered she had been sending 'messages of love' to another man.
Duvier wrote that Miss Duvier tried to grab an envelope of spare cash he kept in the desk but he got it first and she began to scratch and push him to try and get it.
According to the court filing, Duvier said: 'When I got to the back door, she pulled at my shirt and scratched me. In doing so got scratches on my neck and hands.
'I swiped her away from me as I was looking away and her hand was on my neck. I opened the back door.
No sign: Kim Kardashian landed back in Los Angeles on Thursday with her two children and mother Kris Jenner - but it was not clear if Duvier was with her on the plane
At her side: Pascal Duvier started working with Kim around the time of the altercation with his wife in which he admitted to having 'swiped' her while she accused him of beating her unconscious
Prominent presence: Duvier has boasted of his work on social media and highlighted pictures showing him protecting Kim and her family
'I then heard my daughter crying as I was about to walk out. When I looked back, I saw (her) on the floor. I believe (she) feigned being passed out. I carried her to the bed. Within seconds she was back up on her feet trying to stop me from leaving'
Duvier claimed that 'I was not the aggressor' and that he 'instinctively brushed away an assault on my body'
The restraining order appears to have been lifted and under a custody agreement the children were to live with Miss Duvier.
The divorce was finalized in October 2013, which appears to be around the time that Duvier started working for Kim.
It is not clear what background checks Kim ran on Duvier before hiring him but the disclosure of his allegedly violent past will no doubt cause her concern.
As a mother to two young children, the fact that he allegedly hit his wife in front of their own children will in particular give her pause for thought.
Kim took part in a campaign highlighting violent abuse of women at the end of last year, along with her sister Kendall Jenner - who Duvier was guarding at the time of the robbery in Paris.
Like Duvier, Miss Duvier was born and raised in Heidelberg, Germany and the couple relocated to Los Angeles in 2011.
In a post on a modeling website Miss Duvier poses in a white fur coat and lists herself as having blonde hair and brown eyes.
She appears to have worked for his ProtectSecurity at the time of the split, using an email address at its domain in court papers.
Miss Duvier is currently working for a wealth management company outside Los Angeles, California. She declined to comment to DailyMail.com.

On her Twitter account she writes: 'You're not able to write your beginning or your ending,but you're able to write a beautiful story in between.'
She is also expecting her fourth child, a son, with her new partner, professional boxer Dakota Walker, 29. She was not available for comment.
On Wednesday it was revealed that Duvier's security firm German ProtectSecurity firm, which has run security for Kim and Kanye since 2012, has racked up debts totalling €1,093,518 - $1,217,265.
He lodged a claim for company insolvency at Heidelberg administrative court on July 22 this year.
The insolvency lawyer appointed by the administrative court to handle his security company's bankruptcy proceedings said : 'There is so much debt. There are many claimants. I cannot say the exact number. Lots.'
The lawyer added that the firm had been failing 'for quite some time.'
The last available accounts from 2014 show the firm, that Duvier had run for 19 years, had a turnover of just over €760,000 euros - $846,000.
One of the company's creditors is the German tax office.

Duvier is registered to an address two miles from his business, but none of the residents of the low-rise block recall ever seeing him.
Around town he drove a top-of-the-range S-Class limousine, those who remember him claimed.
But they added he has not been seen since the summer when neighboring tenants reported him turning up to his business premises to remove boxes and files.
'HE DOES EVERYTHING HE CAN TO PROTECT HER'
Defence: Pascal Duvier's sister Denise (pictured) says robbery in the early hours of Monday morning was not the bodyguard's fault
Pascal Duvier's sister hit back at critics who blame him for the heist and spoke of him as a 'true professional' in an interview with MailOnline.
Duvier's younger sister Denise said: 'He is really angry and emotional about what happened.
'He hasn't done anything wrong but this has really affected him, that someone he protects has suffered a robbery like this.
'He has come in for a lot of unfair criticism. But I know he's not going to stop until he finds whoever did this.'
Denise said she spoke to her brother, who has two young daughters, on Wednesday, 48 hours after the robbery, and he was still furious.
'He's a real professional at what he does and he's been working in personal protection for years,' she said. 'I worked for his company in Germany doing office work and so I know what he's like.
'He doesn't drink, he doesn't smoke and he does judo and martial arts. He trains a lot and is constantly raising the bar so he can rise to new challenges.

'He's a very healthy person with a very demanding job. He eats healthily but it's a question of eating when he can and sleeping when he can because of the nature of his work.
'It hurts to see some of the criticism he's been receiving. He protects Kim's family and acts as Kim and Kanye West's personal bodyguard.
'He has colleagues who support him because he can't be in two places at once but they are also very professional.'
Pascal's mum Barbe, who lost her husband at the start of the year, added: 'My son's so professional at what he does.
'I won't have a bad word said about him. He looks after himself to make sure he's always in the best shape possible.
'He's very private when it comes to his work. I know obviously that he's Kim Kardashian's bodyguard but he never speaks about it.'
