Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's relationship has experienced some strain and hardship over the years, ultimately leading to their recent divorce.

Conversations around West's mental health being a cause of concern when it comes to his comments on social media have been the topic of news especially surrounding the presidential election of 2020 and episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

But according to Page Six, a former bodyguard of West is seemingly attempting to gain exposure from his association with the rapper as streaming services are working to create documentaries about those experiences.


(*Sighs*).

The documentaries are reportedly going to focus on West's former bodyguard, ex-NYPD officer Steve Stanulis for a '48 Hours' style project.

Interesting.

"Two studios approached me," Stanulis told Page Six about the projects that could start shooting as soon as April. "They see this as a '48 Hours' for real or a 'Lethal Weapon' for real," he continued. "It comes from my mouth; I worked with West two separate times."

These ideas come off a little dramatic because it seems they are making a film-style production of a genuine job that's supposed to protect celebrities and other influential people from harm.

However, Stanulis was around West at the 2016 Met Gala when he allegedly walked into the wrong hotel room of an Italian luminary, where an altercation almost occurred. Stanulis was also around when West had a meltdown on SNL the same year.

Stanulis mentioned that other former cops would share their accounts and exclusive stories about their time working with 'Ye.

Moreover, Stanulis and West have had ups and downs in their professional relationship. Stanulis made adverse comments about West in a UK newspaper, which resulted in West threatening him with a $30m suit, claiming that Stanulis signed a confidentiality agreement.

Over the years, they battled over the alleged contract— Ye' saying that Stanulis signed one and Stanulis denying it.

Even in an episode of the Hollywood Raw podcast last year, Stanulis claimed that West was one of the "neediest, moodiest, and worst tipper" he ever encountered/worked for.

Personally, I believe there is nothing wrong with telling your truth. However, the apparent documentaries shouldn't be taken as the end all be all given Stanulis and West's tumultuous relationship over the years. Despite this, we'll have to wait and see how this will play out.

What are your thoughts about these potential documentaries on Kanye West? Will you tune in?

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases - solving this problem is bigger than supporting women, it’s about supporting the national economy.

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases

Written by Kelly Devine, Division President UK & Ireland, Mastercard

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
