Kanye West has threatened to file a $10million lawsuit against his former bodyguard, who claims he was ‘fired for trying to talking to to Kim Kardashian’.
The hip-hop star issued a damning statement about Steve Stanulis after the latter discussed his difficult working relationship with the famous couple leading up to his sacking on 2 May.
The couple said they will a file a breach of confidentiality suit against the father-of-three, 42, unless he apologises for his comments he has made about them to the media in recent weeks.A spokesperson for Kanye told MailOnline:
‘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.’This sad, parasitic maniac has violated every basic human tenet of decency with his story of lies. As such, the Wests will explore all legal means at their disposal to silence this nonsense.’
Kanye and Kim’s lawyer have sent a legal letter to Stanulis, accusing him of breaking a confidentiality agreement he was under as their former employee.
