Bodyguard Steve Stanulis is opening up about the “ridiculous rules” he allegedly had to follow while working for Kanye West.
Steve claims Kimye call the paparazzi on themselves.
Kanye West’s former bodyguard Steve Stanulis is speaking out about the “ridiculous rules” he had to follow while working for the rapper. While chatting with the Hollywood Raw podcast (via Just Jared), Stanulis claimed Kanye “wanted you to stay 10 paces behind him on a city street. So obviously, if someone is going to come up and do something, by the time I try to run up and prevent it, it would have already happened.”
He also alleged that Kanye—who’s one of his “least favorite people to work with over the course of time”—got super pissed at him in an elevator when he didn’t know what floor they were going to:
“The first day I met him…it was Fashion Week. I was supposed to meet him at the studio,” Stanulis said. “When he gets there, we get into the elevator and he says, ‘Aren’t you going to push what floor we are going to?’ I was like, ‘I have no idea what floor, it’s my first day.’ So he starts ranting, ‘So you mean you didn’t call ahead to find out where I’m supposed to be going?’ I said no. So he’s ranting and raving. So I said, ‘Look, bro, we can do this one of three ways. One, you could tell me what button to press, and now I’ll know. Two, you could press the button, and I’ll see which one you press so I’ll know. Or three, you can sit in here all day and tell me how important your time is and we are not going to go anywhere.’ Again, that was our first interaction. He went for the first option.”
These are some pretty wild (and unsubstantiated!) claims, but there’s more: Stanulis says Kim and Kanye call the paparazzi on themselves—at least in his opinion.
“First of all, there’s no way [paparazzi] doesn’t get called up front. There’s no way every time they are leaving, all these people know about it. There’s definitely somebody calling ahead. That’s just my opinion…I’m just saying it’s coincidental that wherever we are, they’re always there. Maybe they’re just better than I think they are.”
