Steve Stanulis, the bodyguard Kanye West fired for supposedly “flirting” with Kim Kardashian, spoke out after the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris hotel Monday. The heist was a product of “karma,” the former Chippendales dancer said on the Australian radio show CJED-FM Wednesday, according to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
While Stanulis doesn’t blame any of the current security guards for the theft, he threw shade at Kardashian. “I don't know if I could have taken down five assailants with guns, [or] it could be karma coming around,” he said.
“First of all, they'll [the Kardashians] never stop posting. That will never change. That's what made them, especially Kim, and that's what she'll continue to do,” he added on the Australian TV show “The Project.” Hours before the attack, Kardashian, 35, flaunted her $4 million engagement ring on Snapchat during a Facetime conversation with future sister-in-law Blac Chyna.
Stanulis continued to criticize Kardashian and her famous family on “Good Morning Britain” Tuesday. “Look, they had this coming to them. They do not respect the importance of security when you have a profile as strong as theirs. When I worked for them Kanye would take off on his own in a cab and leave me behind to take another cab,” he said. “It used to infuriate me as I wasn't doing my job as well as I could have.”
“They went to an exclusive place, with exclusive entrances, they knew exactly where to go, where to find the jewelry,” the former bodyguard continued. “Security was out with the sisters and Kim had been showing all the jewelry on Snapchat. It's a perfect storm to get robbed.”
Paris police alleged it might have been an inside job. “They knew there was no security [with her inside her apartment that night],” they said in a statement to the New York Post Tuesday. “All they had to do was go in, make contact with someone inside the hotel. They have issues with story of more than one worker at the hotel. They are also talking to bodyguards who worked with her earlier in the week.”
Kardashian has not posted on social media since the incident.
