Kim & Kanye West Threaten To Sue Ex Bodyguard For $10 Million For Breaching Confidentiality Agreement
Reality star Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West are reportedly looking to take legal action against their former bodyguard. After reportedly sending a cease-and-desist letter to Steve Stanulis, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have threatened to sue him for $10 million, after he revealed “confidential information”, during an interview with Hollywood Raw Podcast.
On the podcast, Steve Stanulis claimed that while employed by Kanye West, he had to abide by the ‘ridiculous rules’ given by the TV couple. He mentioned that Kim and Kanye would often call the paparazzi on themselves when they left the house. When speaking on Kanye West as an employer, Steve Stanulis said that he was ‘one of my least favorite people to work with over the course of time’.
Now, new reports revealed that Stanulis signed an agreement, which forbade him from speaking on any personal or business-related information regarding the Wests in 2016. Although it was not revealed what part of Stanulis claims Kim Kardashian West and Kayne are referring to, the couple will reportedly pursue legal action for breaching their confidentiality agreement if Stanlus speaks on their private lives again.
In response to their claims, Stanulis publicists, Zack Teperman, denied his client breaching their agreement, to TMZ. He 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.”
When Stanulis was fired by Kanye back in 2016, he spoke out about the “Good Life” rapper being rude, barely speaking to him, and not once thanking him for his services. He referred to him then as the ‘most self-absorbed person’, he had ever worked with. Stanulis said back then:
“I don’t think he ever said two words to me. I would go to a restaurant with him and watch him to make sure nobody was bothering him. Not once was I offered a glass of water or a soda. That was never in his mindset.”
In response to what caused his firing four years ago, Stanulis alleges that he asked Kim if their plans to take a sports car to the Met Gala that evening had changed. According to our reports, this reportedly made Kanye upset, who heard Stanuls as he walked past the doorway of their New York hotel suite.
