Kanye West is threatening to file a $10million lawsuit against former bodyguard Steve Stanulis who has revealed to the press that he was fired for ‘talking’ to Kim Kardashian.
Kanye has issued a statement about Steve after Steve let out details of his work relationship with Kanye and Kim that led to Kanye sacking him on the 2nd of May.
The couple want to file a breach of confidentiality suit against Steve if he does not apologise for the claims he laid against them in the media.
‘The West Family will no longer tolerate the spreading and selling of fake stories in a desperate, transparent and shameless attempt for publicity at their expense.
‘This sad, parasitic maniac has violated every basic human tenet of decency with his story of lies. As such, the Wests will explore all legal means at their disposal to silence this nonsense,’ a rep for the Wests told Dailymail.uk
TMZ.com reports that Stanulis was sent a letter from Kim and Kanye’s lawyer as regards to this, and he’s being accused of breaking confidentiality agreement.
But Stanulis claims the Wests are asking him to sign the agreement post factum. He also adds that they are yet to pay him for three days of work which he did earlier this month.
Stanulis sticks to his story that his job was unjustly terminated by Kanye after he (Stanulis) tried to talk to Kim at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel minutes before they were to go in for the Met Gala.
He said he did no wrong as he only wanted to be sure of the couple’s movements after he heard that there was a change of transportation plans. Kim was the first he saw and thus he approached her, naturally; although Kanye had warned at an earlier time that Stanulis was never to engage in any form of conversation with her,
The ex cop has called Kanye ‘jealous’ and ‘the most condescending person I have ever met’.
He adds that the rapper’s other offences include refusing to press his own lift buttons, asking guards not to speak when he was in their midst, sulking when forced to sit in the front seat of a car and ‘never’ apologising for wrongs done.
A source from the security firm that Stanulis works for says that the bodyguard will get his pay the moment he puts forward a formal invoice.
