One of the reasons for a professional bodyguard is to uphold the privacy and reputation of their client. Anna Nicole Smith’s bodyguard seemed to have gone overboard with his desire to protect his client’s reputation. He acknowledged that the initial stories he told immediate after her death were not true. He claims he was trying to protect her reputation. This is one of the many tough situations a bodyguard can get him or herself into. There is a fine line between protecting the privacy and reputation of your client and turning a blind eye to illegal or immoral activity.
