Kanye West reportedly fired a security guard the night of the Met gala because he “chatted” with his wife Kim Kardashian.

The rapper allegedly “flew into a fit of rage” and then fired bodyguard Steve Stanulis after he saw him and the Kardashian talking outside her room at the Waldorf Astoria hotel, before the Metropolitan Museum of Arts gala Monday night, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail reports that one person who was there said, “something happened at the Waldorf Astoria where Kanye just lost it.”

Another eyewitness told the Mail the performer yelled, “This isn’t right!”

Stanulis was reportedly let go a few hours later, and has “squashed rumors” that he was flirting with the Kardashian, saying, “I’m a happily married man with three children and I have no comment.”

This is not the first time the pair have had a run-in. In February, Kanye and the bodyguard “came to blows” after the rapper found Stanulis “charming” Kim at the fashion week in New York, according to reports.
