Why are Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West threatening to sue their former bodyguard? 

A few days ago news broke that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West were threatening to sue their former bodyguard. The former bodyguard appeared to be working for the couple for quite some time. Though it is unclear for how long the bodyguard was working for Kanye West, this isn’t the first time West has problems with Stanulis. In 2016, he allegedly fired him for chatting with his wife, according to Vanity Fair.

Apparently it had everything to do with what Stanulis shared while on Dax Holt and Adam Glyn’s podcast Hollywood Raw Podcast.

The former bodyguard shared a lot of surprising information during his feature on Hollywood Raw Podcast. It immediately became clear that Stanulis did not enjoy his time while working as a bodyguard for Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West. Luckily, fans and viewers of Keeping Up With the Kardashians had the opportunity to hear Stanulis’ side of the story during his recent interview, and he didn’t spare any details. 

Stanulis shared that meltdowns were normal for Kanye West. He also indicated that he believes the couple alerts the paparazzi any time they leave the house. Perhaps the most surprising piece of information that the former bodyguard discussed during his interview was Kanye West’s bad habit of tipping poorly. Overall, there seemed to be a lot of moments where working for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West was far less than enjoyable. The alleged instance that is generating the most attention resulted from Stanulus’ statement explaining that Kanye West preferred for all of his security and staff to stay “10 paces away” from him, according to Daily Mail. If this information is true, it would definitely create a lot of speculation and questions surrounding the famous family’s promoted image and brand.  

Why are sources speculating that what Stanulis shared is true? 

No one should be surprised that there are mixed reviews and opinions amongst fans and viewers of Keeping Up With the Kardashians when it comes to this manner. However, many people are noticing that Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are acting quite guilty, TMZ reports. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West filed a cease and desist letter to the former bodyguard. By doing this, the couple is indirectly validating the information and accusations that Stanulis shared. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West have expressed that they are upset over the breach of confidentiality.

However, the former bodyguards’ publicist doesn’t think this is the case at all. According to DListed, “No breach of any confidentiality agreement was done. 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.” Nevertheless, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s eager and quick actions seem to be speaking for themselves.
