Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have taken legal action against West’s former bodyguard who described the rapper as the “neediest, moodiest and worst tipper.”
Kardashian, 39, and West, 42, sent a cease and desist letter threatening Steve Stanulis with a $10 million lawsuit if he publicly speaks about West again, TMZ reported.
The letter alleges Stanulis made “false and defamatory” statements on the “Hollywood Raw” podcast and claims he breached his confidentiality agreement, which he purportedly signed in February 2016.
“It is unfortunate that this private matter between all parties has gotten out, however, no breach of any confidentiality agreement was done,” Stanulis’ rep told Page Six in a statement on Monday. “My client went on a podcast to promote his new film ‘5th Borough’ that is set to come out June 3rd and old stories that were already out there were brought up.”
“For Kanye and Kim’s counsel to send out a threatening letter is unwarranted,” the rep added.
Kardashian and West’s attorney didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Stanulis, a former NYPD cop, said on the podcast that the “Jesus Walks” rapper was one of his “least favorite people” to work with because of his “ridiculous rules.” He did, however, note that West was his most hardworking client.
