In the new issue of In Touch, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s former bodyguard Steve Stanulis is telling all about the time he spent working with the famous couple — spilling all about their brutal fights, separate lives and Kanye’s outrageous behavior.
“It’s unbelievable how disrespectful and self-absorbed this guy is. It’s crazy,” he reveals.
Steve, who was allegedly fired by an enraged Kanye when the rapper thought he was flirting with is wife, saw firsthand what a loose cannon he can be.

“I’ve been with a lot of high-end people,” Steve (who first worked for Kanye for 10 days during Fashion Week in February, then again for three days leading up to the Met Gala) says, “but I’ve never worked with somebody like that in my whole life.”
Steve details one incident during Kanye’s album release, when Kanye had an uncomfortable interaction with two police officers.
“He had a studio full of people when he was dropping the album and I have two off-duty cops there working, talking quietly among the wildness when [Kanye] walks by them and goes, ‘Can you stop talking while I walk by you?’ And they were like, ‘What?’” Steve recalls. “This is the type of guy you’re dealing with.”

Steve explains another incident where he became so irate by someone on the phone while at his studio, that he left and began walking down NYC’s West Side Highway.
"They were fighting [on the phone] and forgot he sent his car out for food. When he buzzed for his car, his car wasn’t there so he flipped out, had a hissy fit and started walking on the West Side Highway!” Steve recalls, adding that he had to chase him down and picked him up on the side of the road in his own personal car!
Kanye has, of course, famously developed a reputation as a narcissistic, egomaniacal diva thanks to his outrageous behavior and comments on social media, in interviews and at work.
But behind the scenes, says Steve, “He’s 10 times worse than what you see.”
