Kanye West's "Diva" Antics Exposed

NEW YORK, NY - The bodyguard Kanye West fired after allegedly "chatting up" Kim Kardashian before heading to this year's Met Gala spoke with The Sun and claimed that the job was equivalent to taking care West's daughter, North.

Image result for kanye west"I had to look after his toddler daughter once and it was so much easier than babysitting the father," The West's former bodyguard Steve Stanulis recalled after two weeks of working for the producer.

The 42-year-old ex-NYPD officer was immediately sacked after getting a little too close to Mrs. Kardashian-West and claims that the couple wasn't "particularly affectionate" despite Yeezy's possessiveness. There's not one thing anyone could point out that would result in one of Ye's epic meltdowns he recounts.

"He got annoyed because I 'got in his shot' once when the paparazzi were taking pictures," Stanilus says. "He absolutely adores the attention. On another occasion when we were in the studio, he walked past a couple of his other bodyguards as they were chatting, then turned and demanded, ‘Can you two not talk when I walk by you?'"

The 38-year-old Yeezy Season designer also apparently demands that his staff wear black because patterns "distract" him and to never touch him, even as his bodyguard.
Additionally, Stanilus told The Sun that Kanye West prefers to not press his own elevator buttons and became upset at him for not knowing which floor he worked on, his first day on the job; a position that holds a high turnover rate with some being fired within the first hour.

"He flipped out, squealing that his time was precious and that he couldn’t believe I hadn’t called ahead to find out which floor he worked on," Stanilus says. "I explained, 'We have three options. You tell me the floor and I press the button, you press the button, or we stand here.' Eventually, he told me and I pressed the button. Kanye never, ever apologizes."

Tamar Braxton Reportedly Fired From The Real

He also gives insight behind Kanye's epic Saturday Night Live rant that was leaked. That's the one where he threatened to walk off the set and called Taylor Swift a "fake ass" because she denounced his use of her name on The Life of Pablo cut, "Famous," after allegedly giving him the okay.

"He was ranting incoherently and at one point screamed, 'I am bummed. If I am going to do this, we are breaking the motherfucking internet,'" Stanilus says.

Another rant, which took place at a listening party, saw West ranting about the GRAMMYs whilst praising his own talents.

"He started spouting off that the GRAMMY Awards were racist and that Adele was OK but she was no Aretha Franklin and that he was the greatest artist of all time," says Stanilus who referred to him as the most condescending person he has ever met.

Crips Arrested After Stealing Balmain Jeans & Rocking Them On Facebook

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK - A trio of alleged Crips from Brooklyn proved they belonged in the 2016 Dumbest Criminals archives after they were arrested for sharing flicks of themselves on social media wearing the Balmain they're accused of robbing from a guy who steals and resales them.


balmain jeans crips arrestedThe French haute couture fashion house is currently one of the most name dropped brands in Hip Hop with the likes of Young ThugKid Cudi and Kanye West among others glorifying their quality in their songs.

NYDailyNews reports that Tyshawn Rivera, Quentin Williams, Derrick Reed and Markel Washington are facing 10 years in prison if convicted on charges that include stealing $15,000 in cash, $10,000 in U.S. Postal money orders, and jewelry. To make matters worse, their legal teams were unaware that the clique (sans Washington) couldn't contain themselves and flaunt the stolen goods on Facebook.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Margaret Gandy reportedly played the fool for Rivera and told the court that jeans could be from anywhere save for "Macy's or TJ Maxx," without knowing about the Facebook posts and defense lawyer Donna Newman stated "my client may well have purchased the jeans and may have receipts for them.

Prosecutors say on May 14, the stickup kids burst into an apartment at the Cypress Hills Houses occupied by nine people, including five toddlers, and took all they could carry. Court documents say the apartment's renter advertised the gear on Facebook and buys it using phony credits cards at retail stores.

Shortly after, the Crips were spotted on Facebook wearing not only the Balmain jeans but $1,000 Giuseppe Zanotti's as well. A pair of the Distressed Moto Jeans are currently retailed for $1,485 at Barneys New York.

The New York Police Department are cracking down on refuted Crips and their alleged crime rings. Over the past week, two of Bobby Shmurda's GS9 cohorts were sentenced to more that 100 years combined for charges that included murder, conspiracy and other infractions.

Magistrate Judge Peggy Kuo denied Garcia's bail and the other three presumably shared the same fate.
