A former body guard of Kanye West is dishing some diva-esque dirt on the star. Maybe the one that crystallizes all of the tales told by Steve Stanulis to UK tabloid the Sun involves West's unwillingness to press an elevator button. Stanulis recounts the first time he accompanied West to his music studio; the singer got into the elevator first and stood there with his arms folded, waiting for Stanulis to hit the button. Problem: Stanulis didn't know which floor. “He flipped out, squealing that his time was precious and that he couldn’t believe I hadn’t called ahead to find out which floor he worked on." Finally West told Stanulis which button to press. "Kanye never, ever apologizes.” (Click to read about West's rant on SNL.)
