Kanye West is in the headlines again and this time it’s not about his divorce. The 43-year-old rapper’s former bodyguard isn’t keeping quiet about his alleged experience with Kim Kardashian‘s soon-to-be-ex while on the job. Steve Stanulis, who worked security for the “Jesus Is King” rapper on several occasions, sat down with Domenick Nati earlier this week and gave a bombshell interview.
Claiming he’s been approached by two studios to do an “explosive” documentary about Kanye West, Steve Standulis openly discussed his former employer’s alleged demands of his staff.
According to Stanulis, the 22-time Grammy winner lost his cool during their first meeting after the bodyguard failed to push an elevator button for him. Claiming that Kanye West asked him, “Aren’t you going to push the button?” the rapper allegedly popped off on Stanulis’ lack of preparation and informed the bodyguard that his time was “valuable.”
Kanye West’s fashion control didn’t just stay on the runway. Stanulis claims that the “Flashing Lights” rapper also tried to control his staff’s wardrobe choices. Scroll to keep reading!
Stanulis alleges that Kanye West didn’t like people around him wearing “patterns” because “they were distracting to him.” He also claims that the dad of four expected the red carpet to be rolled out on all occasions, as well as reportedly demanding that his bodyguards stay ten paces behind him as to not get in his paparazzi shots.
Stanulis is speaking out on the “The Domenick Nati Show” because he says Kanye West’s team failed to give him an NDA. In fact, he also alleges that his signature was forged on one after he refused to sign it upon firing.
This isn’t Stanulis’ first rodeo with Kanye West. The rapper threatened to hit the former bodyguard with a $30 million lawsuit in 2016 after Stanulis spoke out to a UK news outlet. Last year, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West allegedly threatened him with a $10 million lawsuit claiming he made “false and defamatory” statements during an interview on the “Hollywood Raw” podcast.
As of this post, no one from Kanye West’s team has addressed Stanulis’ new claims. Back in 2016, the rapper’s rep called Stanulis a “parasitic maniac” who “violated every basic human tenet of decency with his story of lies.”
