Kanye’s ex-minder and former New York cop Steve Stanulis has given The Sun a brutal assessment of his time working for the self-proclaimed “greatest living artist”, calling Kanye “condescending” and “ten times worse than what you see”.
Stanulis told the paper that in two weeks working for the world-famous rapper, (yes, just two weeks), you would “never know what would trigger a meltdown” and that he was “the most condescending person [he had] ever met”.
Eventually, Stanulis was fired by the rapper after working for him for 14 days after Kanye saw his minder chatting to wife Kim Kardashian.

“I first met her in February at his design studio. I introduced myself and said I was working for her family, so she knew who I was. She was very nice,” he told The Sun.
“After a few moments one of Kanye’s assistants came over and told me not to talk to Kim or get too close to her. The order can only have come from him.”
It was only after another instance when Stanulis had run into Kardashian in a hotel hallway that Kanye put his foot down and Stanulis was told his services were no longer required.
Despite only being by Kanye’s side for a matter of weeks, Stanulis had enough stories to paint the picture of a man with the patience and maturity of someone who has been in the spotlight for a little too long.
