I'm sure everyone remembers Kris from the Bodyguard Group, and the allegations Tila made. Because the story was so confusing and everyone wanted to give Kris the chance to explain the truth @rPulse got in cotact with him and here is what he had to say for himself. (Video is at bottom)
Kris called @rPulse and she asked him many questions; one question she wanted answered was how the relationship with Tila began. Here's what @rpulse had to say and her interview with Kris.
"I wanted to know how the relationship began; Kris explained that over a year ago, he and a few of his men had been working in LA with a client. They were in a store and heard a commotion and a women screaming for help close by. He saw paparazzi surrounding someone and her her screaming.
He and a few men made sure their client was secure and went to help the woman in need, he had no idea at the time that it was Tila Tequila, he and his men had never seen or met her before. She had been surrounded by photographers and they helped her get to her car.
I emailed Kris the link to the July 2008 video below as well as a copy of the picture of him lounging on Tila's couch next to Tila's dog, Onyx.
I just spoke with Kris. When I asked him to explain the video, he said, "that was the second time I had met Tila. "
Liz - It looks like Kris knows Tila when he meets her in the video. It even looks like this is the first time he actually meets her and hands her a business card.
Kris - "The first time I met her was exactly as I said, I had been with a client and my guys and I did rush across the street to help Tila and her assistant get their cars. I t was probably closer to 2007, and she was surrounded by paparazzi. I am really terrible at remembering all the dates and even all the celebrities. My guys have told me I have to be more outgoing and introduce myself and our services more. That is why I approach Tila in the video the way I do."
As you guys may or may not remember, Tila's TV show was in full swing and she was huge with the media. Being swarmed by paparazzi was the norm for her at that time.
Liz- I sent Kris the picture below of him on a couch in Tila's home, holding a book with her pictures on it, and asked him to explain.
Kris - "Yes, I remember when Tila posted that on twitter. It was the first night that my guys and I were at her house. She was supposed to be packing and we were going to take her to the airport. My guys are actually behind Tila when she is taking the picture. As I said, non of us were ever alone with her.
"So the guys are on these bar stools behind her because all of the couches were covered with dog hair. I really didn't care because I have German shepherds and have hair on me anyway. I parked myself on this low couch and Tila came into the room and pointed a camera at me, I grabbed one of the many books of Tila that were scattered on a table next me and tried to cover my face."
Liz- I asked Kris about the photo Tila posted of her dog Onyx with his' Security badge and gun.
Kris - "Tila asked if would let her put the badge and and gun next to Onyx, I didn't see any harm in and clearly didn't think Tila would use the picture to harm me in any way."
Kris wishes this would all just go away but he is still getting emails and messages regarding Tila. he also told me that he s he had taken some time to research Tila when she called, in truth he had to take her word that she had been threatened. His natural reaction was to pack her up and put her on a plane, he would do that again for someone who was truly frightened and thought they were in danger.
That one night turned into a week and now has dragged on even long after."
