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?

I'm pleading for pop culture to stop playing OCD for laughs

Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate how we portray OCD in films and TV series.

Melvin Udall in As Good as it Gets

I've had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since I was a child and I'm now in my early 40s. For all of this time, I have felt like I should be apologizing for it.

It's like this invisible phantom that engulfs one in fear and doubt and brings dark clouds to a shiny day at the park. The sense of guilt has always followed me due to the disorder being a part of my everyday life. For whenever I would try to talk about it to a friend or a relative, to explain a certain lifestyle choice, to touch upon its debilitating nature, I've often been looked at funny in return.
