Steve Stanulis spilled about his time defending West on a podcast again in Might, and attorneys for the “Jesus Is King” star fired off a stop and desist to Stanulis in early June, threatening to sue him for $10 million if he continued to run his mouth.
The letter claimed that Stanulis had made “false and defamatory” statements on the “Hollywood Uncooked” podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, and claims he breached a confidentiality settlement he purportedly signed in February 2016.
However Web page Six has now seen a response from Stanulis’ lawyer, which claims the bodyguard by no means signed a confidentiality settlement within the first place.

In an announcement to Web page Six, Stanulis’ lawyer, Dmitriy Shakhnevich, mentioned, “Our shopper is being bullied right here, and we is not going to stand for that.”
Stanulis, who just lately launched a flick “fifth Borough” co-starring Tara Reid, advised us, “I’m not going to let Kanye West and [his wife, Kim Kardashian, whose signature also appeared on the cease and desist] push me round simply because they’re wealthy and well-known. I’m gained’t be intimated by these two egotists!”
He mentioned that he would by no means have signed away his “First Modification rights” and that, in reality, he’s “growing a brand new film round my experiences as a bodyguard to the celebrities.” He added, “So if Kanye and Kim need to go to warfare convey it on — they aren’t the one ones with a powerful authorized crew.”
West’s reps didn’t get again to us.
