Kanye West Reportedly Fired His Security Guard For Talking to Kim Kardashian
Moments before hitting the red carpet at Monday night’s Met Gala, Kanye West reportedly flew into a rage and fired his bodyguard.
According to the New York Daily News, the rapper became jealous after spotting his bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, chatting with his wife, Kim Kardashian, outside her hotel room on the 36th floor of the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan.
An eyewitness told the newspaper that "Kanye just lost it."
Stanulis is a former NYPD officer and actor who has also worked as a bodyguard for Leonardo DiCaprio.
He denies flirting with Kardashian. "I’m a happily married man with three children and I have no comment," he said.
According to the Daily News, a source close to West has also called the report "untrue." "No changes have been made to the security team," the source reportedly said.
The musician has not commented on the matter but took to Twitter after the event to thank his fashion team and Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour for the night.

Also following the event, designer Zac Posen is spilling the secrets on how he got Claire Danes’ dress to light up. It took 30 battery packs to illuminate the LED lights that were attached to special custom-ordered French fabric.
“The dress is hollow inside,” Posen told Good Morning America. “It’s as light as possible.”
The dress was crafted to fit the theme of “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”
“I’m interested in that place, where the past and the future meet, because that’s universal and that hits a cord around the world to women and girls and men,” Posen said. “Just recognizing beauty and a magic moment and fantasy and technology."
Supermodel Gigi Hadid reportedly spent $2,000 on a manicure for the Met Gala. Her press-on nails were adorned with crystals and had a chrome finish.
Miranda Kerr spent Tuesday recovering from the opulent night’s festivities.
The former Victoria's Secret Angel took time out pampering with a hydrating face mask.
Morning after Met Ball remedy: @koraorganics Hydrating Face Mask and Recovery Eye Gel Cream. Keeping it in the fridge is one of my little secrets as it helps the product stay cool and makes it feel extra soothing when I apply it around my eyes. Especially after a long night! It really helps with the puffiness. 🙈👀😉 See more of my morning after remedies on @voguemagazine (link in bio)! #metball #metgala #koraorganics
