Kim Kardashian's former bodyguard Pascal Duvier isn't letting the sand shift under his feet after being 'let go' by the reality star following her Paris heist ordeal.

The security specialist who runs his own company was spotted keeping watch over singer Fergie on Friday as she shot what appeared to be a music video in the beach in Malibu.

The Black Eyed Peas vocalist has previously been a client of Pascal's German ProtectSecurity firm and is clearly happy to have him around despite the controversy over the Kardashian incident.

Pascal was dressed all in black and seemed fairly relaxed as he oversaw proceedings.

He carried a black umbrella and occasionally used it to shade Fergie as she splashed in the surf.

And he was never far from her side despite the presence of several crew members around her.

It's the first time Pascal has been seen at work as a body guard since news broke that he'd been dismissed by Kim and her husband Kanye West following the October 3 nighttime robbery in the French capital.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star, 35, has kept a low profile since the highly-publicized heist during which she was threatened at gun point before thieves escaped with millions of dollars in jewelry.

The German had been assigned to protecting Kim's sisters Kendall and Kourtney when the robbery happened and while the Kardashians said they didn't blame him for what happened, after four years in their employ, Pascal is no longer working for them.

In the immediate aftermath, both Kim and Kanye had seemed to show their support for Pascal, who was seen protecting the couple in New York City immediately after the robbery.

A shift began to occur in recent weeks though, according to some close to the family, with Kanye becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of his wife Kim and their two children, North and Saint.

A source told Entertainment Tonight a few weeks ago: 'Kim and Kanye are reassessing their security detail now. Kanye is freaking out - this really threw him for a loop.

'There will be a lot of things that change now in terms of security, especially with the children.'

In addition to Fergie, Pascal's other longtime celebrity clients include Will.i.am, the Pussycat Dolls, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Lana del Rey and Katy Perry.
