Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West are considering legal action after their former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, went to the press to talk about his alleged experiences working for the power couple.

"The West Family will no longer tolerate the spreading and selling of fake stories in an desperate, transparent and shameless attempt for publicity at their expense," a spokesperson for Kim and Kanye tells ET said in a statement. "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."

Stanulis, a former Staten Island police officer, has said that Kanye fired him after he spoke to his wife about the hold-up to get to the Met Gala. "I had no intention on hitting on Kim Kardashian," Sanulis told the Daily Mail. "I am happily married. I got enough problems in the world and three young kids, so that was not my intent."

A source close to the situation tells ET that the bodyguard -- who is also an aspiring actor and former Chippendales dancer-- was never fired nor was he hired on as a full-time employee. The source says Stanulis was only brought on when additional security was needed in New York for Kim and Kanye, and there was never any drama.
