Kanye West's former bodyguard reveals his 'ridiculous rules'

Kanye West's former bodyguard is speaking out about some of the intense guidelines he had to follow while he was employed by the rapper.

He said West was one of his "least favourite people to work with over the course of time."

In a conversation with the Hollywood Raw podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, Steve Stanulis said, for starters, West "wanted [him] to stay 10 paces behind him on a city street. So obviously, if someone is going to come up and do something, by the time [he could] try to run up and prevent it, it would have already happened."

Stanulis also alleged that West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, notify the paparazzi every time they leave the house.

"There's no way every time they are leaving, all these people know about it," he said on the podcast. "There's definitely somebody calling ahead. That's just my opinion."

Stanulis said that when he tried to protect West from the paparazzi, the rapper would get angry at him for "being in his shot."

He also recalled a time that he almost came to blows with the security team of an Italian dignitary when West, who he said was "a little intoxicated," wandered into the wrong hotel room.

Though Stanulis slammed West as the neediest, moodiest and worst tipper he's worked for, he also said that the rapper was the most hardworking.
