    In the interview, he chronicled the first time when he met Kim and got reprimanded. He said, “When I first met Kim, you know, I was supposed to be with her. So when she first came into the studio, I said, ‘Hey Kim, I just wanna introduce myself. My name is Steve. I’ll be your security.’ Within the first five minutes, I got reprimanded and taken to the side and was told, ‘Don’t talk to Kim’ “.

    Stanulis also said that he was not surprised with their recent divorce at all due to lack of affection. Steve continued, “It was like I discovered the Titanic. I’ve never seen them snuggly or hold hands or anything romantic. You know, even like when they were together, they kissed each other goodbye, and I don’t mean like make out. I mean just like, ‘Hey, see you later, hun.’ I never saw any affection.”

    He said, “I just thought it was odd. I’d be with them sometimes 17, 18 hours a day and she’d be doing her thing, and then he’d do his thing”.
