Kanye West's former bodyguard Steve Stanulis has accused the rapper's handlers of forging a non-disclosure agreement.
New reports suggest the rapper has threatened to sue the ex-police officer for going public with his thoughts and feelings after Kanye fired him ahead of the Met Gala in New York on 2 May (16).
The 38-year-old hip hop star's lawyer allegedly sent a letter to the security professional demanding a public apology, noting Stanulis signed a confidentiality agreement as part of the terms of his employment with West.
But the former cop has denied signing a non-disclosure contract, telling Page Six, “After I had finished working with them (Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian), and my first comments came out in the press, Kanye’s head of security wanted to meet me and asked me to sign a post-dated confidentiality agreement, and I refused. That would be like putting my head on the guillotine and pulling the lever."
Stanulis went on to insist any non-disclosure agreement produced by West's legal team bearing his autograph is bogus.
“Somebody seems to have done their best to copy my signature on another confidentiality agreement, which is clearly a fake, and I can prove it," he attests. "It isn’t my signature, and I have a chain of messages from them asking me to sign an NDA months after this forged one is dated."
“Kanye is demanding an apology from me, but he owes me an apology for terrorising me," he adds.
But sources close to Kanye insist Steve has forgotten he did sign a non-disclosure agreement back in February (16).
According to TMZ, West and his wife are planning to move forward with a lawsuit if Stanulis does not issue a formal public apology for going public with his experiences as the rapper's minder.
