Don’t mess with the West family — or else! Kimye is threatening to slap their ex-bodyguard with a lawsuit for basically being a ‘parasitic maniac,’ and its hefty price tag will make your jaw drop!
Yikes! Kanye West, 38, and Kim Kardashian, 35, have threatened to file a $10 million lawsuit against their former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, 42, after he disclosed confidential information about him working for the Wests to media outlets. Man is he going to be sorry for ever crossing Kanye!
The power couple said they will file a breach of confidentiality suit against Steve, unless he apologies for his comments he made about them in the media after he was fired, according to TMZ.
“The West Family will no longer tolerate the spreading and selling of fake stories in a desperate, transparent and shameless attempt for publicity at their expense,” a spokesperson for the couple told New York Daily News.
“This sad, parasitic maniac has violated every basic human tenant of decency with his story of lies,” the spokesperson continued. “As such, the Wests will explore all legal means at their disposal to silence this nonsense.”
Okay, $10 million is a lot for spreading rumors, but Kimye may be on to something here. It’s bad enough the family can’t walk out the house with a million cameras flashing in their face, but to have some one reveal family secrets is kind of crossing the line.
But Steve probably doesn’t see it that way. The former police officer protected the Wests for only a short period of time before her was fired in May 2016. He claims that he was terminated after a “jealous Kanye” saw him talking to Kim before the Met Gala. “I had no intention on hitting on Kim Kardashian. I am happily married. I got enough problems in the world and three young kids, so that was not my intent,” the father of three told the Daily Mail. Kim didn’t seem to be a target, but he continued to tell news outlets that Yeezus was “the most self-absorbed person” he’s ever met and even talked about North. Whoa! Kanye is super protective of Kim, but even more defensive over little Nori.
But not so fast Kimye! Stanulis may be slapping the couple with a lawsuit of his own. He claims that he’s still waiting for $1,1000 in expenses that he’s owed for his three days of work, according to the Daily Mail. He claims that he called the firm that handles employees for the family about his payment, but Kanye’s camp immediately rejected him.
This is a mess! Steve may have a case if he hasn’t been paid for his services, but $1,100 is really pocket change in comparison to Kimye’s $10 million suit. If we were Steve, we would be afraid, very afraid!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Steve should apologize to Kim and Kanye or take them on in court?
