For a time, the Staten Island resident was also a Chippendales dancer named ‘Savage Steve’.
During the explosive podcast last month, the bodyguard claimed West melted on the first day they met, and raved about Stanulis not knowing which button to press in the elevator of a studio where he made clothes for its model line.
The former celeb bodyguard then claimed that West threw his toys out of the stroller and said, “So you mean you didn’t call ahead to find out where I should go?”

“Two, you could press the button, and I’ll see which one you press and then I know. Or three, you can sit here all day and tell me how important your time is and we’re not going anywhere. ”

Another anecdote Stanulis claimed was that West once walked the West Side Highway in upstate New York after arguing with someone.

Elsewhere in the interview, the bodyguard said that West was the hardest worker he has ever encountered, but also the “neediest, moodiest, and worst tipper,” saying he would stop working with him in the future.
When it came to celebrity naming, he revealed that Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire was the “ friendliest, ” while also praising praise from Alanis Morissette, Woody Harrelson, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Stephen Baldwin.
Stanulis previously made dismissive comments about Kanye and Kim after her robbery in Paris in October 2016.
In a round of media interviews at the time, Stanulis claimed that West would not allow him to take the same taxi when he was traveling or sit at the same table when he was out for dinner.
West did not respond to any of the claims at the time.
