The former bodyguard of Kanye West, Steve Stanulis, initiates a lawsuit against the TikTok star Cole Carrigan on Friday in response to the various allegations. This happened after Carrigan claimed that Stanulis set up an illicit meeting for him and Kanye at a Hotel in Los Angeles, last year.
Cole Carrigan’s accusations against the bodyguard
Carrigan posted a series on TikTok on Thursday sharing about being called to meet West through a former bodyguard at a W hotel in November. In one of the videos, Carrigan posted screenshots of messages that were exchanged with the bodyguard and said that he cannot share much because he’s afraid of a lawsuit from the Kardashian family. But the text chain was enough evidence to prove what he was saying was true.
In another clip, the beauty influencer claimed that he first met Kanye at a Bel Air party in May, before getting messages from Steve. Carrigan also recalled that he asked him if he remembered him from the part and said that Kanye wanted to meet him that night. He further claimed that the transportation to and from the hotel was arranged and he was even sent a non-disclosure agreement. But Stanulis made a public statement stating that he’s never met or spoken to Carrigan and even pointed out that Cole used to work for West years ago, back in 2016.
The legal proceedings of the case
What is more intriguing is that Carrigan never mentions the name of the bodyguard, even though in one of the clips a clear headshot of Stanulis can be seen as well as Stanulis’ name can be seen in the exchanges.
Lawyers have been involved in this, and a legal letter has been sent to Carrigan that clearly declines any accusations and states everything as false. Sources further found out that West has never even heard of or met Carrigan.
Steve has initiated legal action against him for defamation. The legal team wants Carrigan to stop posting about him and has also demanded a public apology to both Steve and West. Carrigan has not yet responded to any mail.
In the past, Stanulis and West have had their share of feuding. But in this case, it seems like Stanulis is going to fight till the end.
