*Kanye West’s former bodyguard Steve Stanulis has reignited his feud with the rapper, speaking out about Ye’s ‘ridiculous rules’ during a recent appearance on the “Hollywood Raw” podcast. 

Stanulis claims one of the most memorable of West’s demands was that he needed to “stay 10 paces” behind the artist while walking outside. 

“So obviously if someone is going to come up and do something, by the time I try to run up and prevent it, it would have already happened,” he said, per Just Jared. 

Stanulis also recalled his first encounter with Kanye during fashion week. 

“When he gets there, we get into the elevator and he says ‘Aren’t you going to push what floor we are going to?’ I was like ‘I have no idea what floor, it’s my first day,’” he said. “So he starts ranting, ‘So you mean you didn’t call ahead to find out where I’m supposed to be going?” I said ‘no.’”

He continued: “So he’s ranting and raving. So I said ‘look bro, we can do this one of three ways. One, you could tell me what button to press, and now I’ll know. Two, you could press the button, and I’ll see which one you press so I’ll know. Or three, you can sit in here all day and tell me how important your time is and we are not going to go anywhere.’ Again, that was our first interaction. He went for the first option.”

He also admitted that Kanye was “one of my least favorite people to work with over the course of time.”

When it comes to Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian, Stanulis confirmed what many of us have long suspected… that the couple tips off paparazzi to their whereabouts.

“First of all, there’s no way [paparazzi] doesn’t get called upfront. There’s no way every time they are leaving, all these people know about it. There’s definitely somebody calling ahead. That’s just my opinion…I’m just saying it coincidental that wherever we are, they’re always there. Maybe they’re just better than I think they are.”

Stanulis also recounted the time he nearly came to blows with the security team of an Italian dignitary after West wandered into the wrong hotel room at the Waldorf.

“We were coming home late from the studio and he was a little intoxicated,” Stanulis said. “He couldn’t find his room,” adding that the other guest’s “bodyguards, private security stand up … didn’t know who [West] was. There was a language barrier. It was like a Mexican standoff.” 

Waldorf security had to be called to the scene to direct Ye back to his own suite.

Back in 2016, Stanulis publicly slammed the Kim and Kanye after he was allegedly fired by the hip-hop star when he was accused of hitting on Kim.

The Weeknd Calls Out ‘Corrupt’ Grammys After 2021 Nominations Snub

*The Weeknd has called out the Recording Academy after he was snubbed for next year’s Grammy Awards.

His fans are giving the Grammys the side-eye after the singer received zero nominations, even though, as TMZ points out, his single, “Blinding Lights,” topped the charts and his album, “After Hours,” hit to #1.

The Weeknd responded to the diss in a tweet hours after the nominees for the 63rd Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday.

“The Grammys remain corrupt,” he wrote. “You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…”

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that The Weeknd’s snub may have to due with him headlining next year’s Super Bowl, but Harvey Mason Jr., Recording Academy Chair and Interim President/CEO, tells PEOPLE that’s not the case.

In a statement to the publication, he said “We understand that The Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated,” Mason Jr. says. “I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling. His music this year was excellent, and his contributions to the music community and broader world are worthy of everyone’s admiration.”

According to TMZ’s report, Grammy officials gave The Weeknd an ultimatum between the two events, and after heated negotiations, they came to an agreement. 

“We were thrilled when we found out he would be performing at the upcoming Super Bowl and we would have loved to have him also perform on the GRAMMY stage the weekend before,” Mason Jr. adds in his statement. “Unfortunately, every year, there are fewer nominations than the number of deserving artists. But as the only peer-voted music award, we will continue to recognize and celebrate excellence in music while shining a light on the many amazing artists that make up our global community.”

“To be clear, voting in all categories ended well before The Weeknd’s performance at the Super Bowl was announced, so in no way could it have affected the nomination process. All GRAMMY nominees are recognized by the voting body for their excellence, and we congratulate them all,” the statement continues.
