Kanye West’s Bodyguard Spills The Beans On His Old Boss, Claiming He Called The Paps On Himself & Was A Sh*t Tipper
We’ve heard a fair few ridiculous Kanye West stories in our time, but this new one is definitely up there. Chatting on podcast Hollywood Raw this week, the singer’s former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, spilled the tea on what it was like working for the singer, saying West threw tantrums, called the paparazzi on himself and was a terrible tipper, reports 10Daily.
"The first day I met him it was Fashion Week," Stanulis said, "I was supposed to meet him at the studio. 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.’"
West then apparently started “ranting and raving”, leaving Stanulis with no choice but to list out three options.
"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.’"
Some of the other ridiculous stuff Stanulis said West did included making Stanulis stay “10 paces” behind him on the street, which kind of defeats the purpose of a bodyguard but OK; being needy and moody; and calling the paparazzi on himself.
"He was worried about me being in his shot, for either a TMZ video or a Daily Mail...whatever. Instead of saying thank you [for trying to protect him], he was mad at me for being in the shot."
"There's no way [paparazzi] doesn't get called upfront," he said. "There’s no way every time they're leaving, all these people know about it. There’s definitely — somebody's calling ahead. That’s just my opinion. I’m just saying it coincidental that wherever we are, they’re always there."
Tbh, we’re here wondering just how tight that NDA contract was, cause surely Stanulis will get in some trouble for revealing these stories..? Either way, we're here for it.
