Former Kanye West bodyguard Steve Stanulis talks about his work time with the rapper.
Stanulis said in an interview on the Hollywood Raw podcast that fashion designer Yeezy was one of his “least favorite people to work with” and had “ridiculous rules.”
“He wanted you to stay 10 paces behind him on a city street. So, obviously, if someone is going to come and do something, by the time I try to rush and prevent it, it would have already happened, “he said.

Stanulis also told a story when he met West during fashion week and they had a dead end in an elevator.
He described, “The first day I met him … it was fashion week. I was supposed to meet him in the studio. When he arrives, we get on the elevator and he says, “Aren’t you going to push which floor we’re going to?” I was like, “I have no idea which floor is my first day.” So he starts to complain, “So you mean you didn’t call ahead to find out where I’m supposed to be?” I said no “. So he is delirious and delirious. So I said, “Look man, we can do this in three ways. First, you could tell me which button to press, and now I will know. Second, you can press the button, and I’ll see the one you press so I know. Or three, you can sit here all day and tell me how important your time is and we’re not going anywhere. Again, this was our first interaction. He opted for the first option. “
Stanulis also explained how he thought West and his wife, Kim Kardashian, called the paparazzi on themselves.

“First of all, there is no way [paparazzi] don’t call yourself right away, “he thought. “There is no way every time they leave, all of these people know that. There is certainly someone calling in advance. It’s just my opinion … I’m just saying it’s a coincidence that wherever we are, they’re always there. Maybe they’re just better than I think. “
The now actor / producer then posted a statement on social media clarifying some of the statements he made in the interview.
Stanulis says some of the comments “were taken out of context” and called West “one of the hardest workers I know and beyond talent in all aspects of his life”.
