KANYE West has been branded the "moodiest" and "neediest" celebrity by his former bodyguard.

Steve Stanulis has worked for the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Robert Downey Jr and Alanais Morisette but has claimed that "Kanye has ridiculous rules" and that he was his "least favorite person" with whom he worked.

"He wanted you to stay 10 paces behind him on a city street," said Steve, "so obviously, if someone is gonna come up and do something, by the time I run up and try to prevent it, it would have already happened."

Steve also alleged that Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian called the photographers, insisting "there's no way [paparazzi] don't get called upfront."

"There's no way every time they're leaving, all these people know about it. There's definitely — somebody's calling ahead. That's just my opinion," he said.

He also claimed that the rapper would get "mad" for Steve walking ahead of him and ruining the photographer's clear shot.

"Technically, I'm supposed to walk in front of you. I gotta make sure you're okay," Steve explained.

"He got mad at me for being in his shot. So I'm like…are you serious?

"Instead of saying thank you, he was mad at me for being in the shot."

Steve also shared two stories of times when he accused Kanye of refusing to listen, claiming that the Flashing Lights star was once "intoxicated" and unable to find his room at the Waldorf and so approached a room where an Italian dignitary was staying.

The security team there "didn't know" who Kanye was and there was a "language barrier", and Steve said that "it was like a Mexican standoff."

Steve began working with Kanye almost 16 years after being out of the game and was speaking on the Hollywood Raw Podcast.

He is a former NYPD officer who became a Chippendales dancer, known as Savage Steve, turned security guard.

Telling another story of how on his first day Kanye began "ranting and raving" because Steve did not push the elevator button, the bodyguard claimed that he would give the star the "one two three" option.

"So he's ranting and raving. So I said, 'Look, bro, we can do this one of three ways. One, you could tell me what button to press, and now I'll know. Two, you could press the button, and I'll see which one you press so I'll know. Or three, you can sit in here all day and tell me how important your time is and we are not going to go anywhere.' Again, that was our first interaction," said Steve.

"It happened numerous times, I went for the one two threes. He [always] went for the first option."

Steve's comments come nearly four years after he was rumored to have been fired by Kanye for speaking to his wife Kim after the 2016 Met Gala.

He later alleged that a shocking attack on Kim in Paris during fashion week was a "publicity stunt".

It's not the first time Steve has made such comments, as he told similar stories soon after he stopped working for the pair.

A spokesman for parents-of-four said, at the time" that "the West Family will no longer tolerate the spreading and selling of fake stories in a desperate, transparent and shameless attempt for publicity at their expense."

"This sad, parasitic maniac has violated every basic human tenet of decency with his story of lies. As such, the Wests will explore all legal means at their disposal to silence this nonsense," the statement read.

Steve later considered suing the pair for defamation but told NY Daily News that he feared the case would "drag on" and he "didn't want that s**t storm outside my house all day long again."

No lawsuits were ever filed.
