Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ‘threaten ex bodyguard Steve Stanulis with $10million lawsuit’


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have threatened their former bodyguard with a multi-million dollar lawsuit reports TMZ, after he made explosive claims about the rapper last month.

 Kim, 39, and Kanye, 42, have reportedly sent a cease-and-desist letter to Kanye’s ex bodyguard Steve Stanulis, alleging he made ‘false and defamatory statements’ and breached a confidentiality agreement on the Hollywood Raw Podcast last month.

Stanulis, who was reportedly fired by the rapper back in 2016, said that he was given ‘ridiculous rules’ to abide by and described the Famous star as ‘one of my least favorite people to work with over the course of time’ on the podcast.

The website states that while Kim and Kanye haven’t specified which of Steve’s statements are false and defamatory, they have threatened to sue for at least $10 million for breaching the confidentiality agreement if he does it again.

Back in 2016, Kim and Kanye were said to have threatened to sue Stanulis for the same thing and demanded a public apology.

Stanulis’ publicist denied to TMZ that any breach of confidentiality agreement had been committed.

Zack Teperman said: ‘My client went on a podcast to promote his new film, and old stories that were already out there were brought up.’

‘For Kanye and Kim’s counsel to send out a threatening letter to bully my client against his rights is unwarranted. My client has already made it clear that he respects Kanye, their time working together.’

‘If Kanye and Kim wish to continue this further, that is up to them, but I think their time and money would be better suited helping out with more pressing matters in our society than what happened many years ago.’  

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Steve Stanulis for comment.     

Stanulis is a former NYPD officer who has appeared in TV projects including The Sopranos and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.

 The Staten Island native for a time was also a Chippendales dancer who went by the name ‘Savage Steve’.                  

During the explosive podcast last month, the bodyguard claimed that West had a meltdown on the first day they met, ranting over the fact Stanulis didn’t know which button to press in the elevator of a studio where he was making clothes for his fashion line.  

The former celeb bodyguard then claimed West threw his toys out of the pram saying: ‘So you mean you didn’t call ahead to find out where I’m supposed to be going?’

Stanulis said he hit back, saying: ‘I said ‘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 pressing and then 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.”  

‘It happened on numerous occasions, I would give him the one, two, three, and he would always go for the first option,’ Stanulis said. 

Another anecdote Stanulis alleged was that West once walked down the West Side Highway in New York State on his own after having an argument with someone. 

He also alleges that West had a rule of making the security professional always be ’10 paces behind him on a city street’ making it difficult Stanulis to do his job when civilians would approach the rapper. 

Elsewhere in the interview, the bodyguard did say West was the hardest worker that he’s ever come across, but also the ‘neediest, moodiest and worst tipper’, saying that he would not work with him again in the future.  

When it came to naming celebrities that were nice, he revealed that Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire was the ‘kindest’ while also praising the likes of Alanis Morissette, Woody Harrelson, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Stephen Baldwin. 

Stanulis previously made disparaging remarks about Kanye and Kim following her Paris robbery in October 2016. 

In a round of media interviews back then, Stanulis alleged that West wouldn’t allow him to take the same cab as him when travelling, or sit at the same table when out for dinner. 

West did not respond to any of the claims at the time.
