Steve Stanulis is the security guy/actor who was fired by Kanye West after he allegedly talked to Kim Kardashian.
We all heard the absurd but very possible –knowing Kanye West –rumor about Steve losing his job all because he decided to speak to Kim! New reports surrounding the story now defend the famous couple after a source close to the Wests told TMZ Steve Stanulis was a temp guy.
He was allegedly hired by the guy in charge of their security to help out before the Met Gala. Accoridng to the gossip site, Stanulis would only be used for the day leading up to the event. That could totally explain why he was let go very quickly instead of reports saying Yeeze axed Stanulis for talking to Kim.
The site also says Yeezy never even had a confrontation with him, and in fact everything “went very smoothly” To make Kim and Kanye’s story even more believable, Stanulis has worked with them before, but what’s pretty certain is that it was the last, since people in their camp believe Steve helped in some way to perpetuate the firing story for some publicity! We thought why a bodyguard would want that kind of publicity? Well, the answer is simple, one that is also an aspiring actor!
