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.
"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?'"
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."
"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.
