(AllHipHop News) The saga of the “fired” Kanye West bodyguard continues. Former NYPD police officer Steve Stanulis was hired to protect West and his wife Kim Kardashian, but he was supposedly sacked by the “Famous” rhymer for flirting with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
Stanulis spoke with the New York Daily News about being canned. According to the part-time Chippendale dancer, West was overreacting out of jealousy.
“I’m not having an affair with Kim Kardashian, I’m not f-cking Kim Kardashian, I’m not doing anything with Kim Kardashian,” said Stanulis. “Kanye needs to chill out.”
The entire ordeal apparently stems from Kardashian having a conversation with Stanulis on Monday night. He was at the Waldorf Astoria hotel to escort the couple to the Met Gala that evening. Prior to the event, the guard learned he would no longer be working for Kanye around 6 p.m.
Stanulis described Kim as being nice and gracious. However, his experience with her husband was the complete opposite.
“He’s the most condescending person I’ve ever met in my life,” Stanulis stated about West. “I’ve worked with a lot of people in his position and higher a lot less self-absorbed and more humble.”
Apparently, this was not the first time the two had issues. The ex-cop worked for the G.O.O.D. Music founder on several occasions, and they reportedly clashed at a fashion studio during New York Fashion Week earlier this year when Stanulis was seen speaking with Kardashian.
Kanye’s team claimed Stanulis was not fired by the artist. Sources in the camp insisted he was just a temporary hire for protection at the Met Gala and is now only speaking out for publicity.
