Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are striking back at an ex-bodyguard who manufactured sensationalistic claims about the couple to the press. "The West Family will no longer tolerate the spreading and offering of fake stories in an desperate, transparent and shameless try for publicity at their cost," a rep for the couple advised Complex. "This sad, parasitic maniac has violated every single simple human tenet of decency with his story of lies. As this kind of, the Wests will discover all legal implies at their disposal to silence this nonsense." In an interview with theDaily Mail. Steve Stanulis known as Kanye "probably the most self-absorbed man or woman I have met in my whole daily life" and claimed he had been fired for speaking to Kim at the 2016 Met Gala. He also went on record claiming Kanye was a management freak, saying he wouldn't talk to his staff directly, and giving a number of other unsavory characterizations of the couple. He later on claimed that they had forged his signature on a nondisclosure agreement, the contents of which stipulate that he would be on the hook for $ten million per interview he gave about them. A supply shut to the situation refuted Stanulis' claims about the NDA, saying, "The claim that his signature on the Confidentiality Agreement is forged is ridiculous and just one more desperate try by him to escape duty for his own wrongful actions." The source also says Stanulis was never ever fired—or even a complete-time employee of the couple. Rather, he was employed as a third party by the couple's typical safety for a number of occasions in New York.
