Kanye West’s encounter with his former trainer, Harley Pasternak, in Dubai has taken a dramatic turn, as it was Harley who felt threatened enough to call for hotel security. While Kanye claims that Harley was stalking him, sources at Atlantis the Royal Dubai resort have provided a different perspective.
Kanye West’s ex-trainer, Harley Pasternak, felt threatened enough to call hotel security during their encounter in Dubai. The incident comes after their previous history of tension, and highlights the ongoing complexities of their relationship.
Harley Pasternak, who has a tumultuous history with Kanye West, was at the resort’s concierge desk at the time of the incident, simply making a dinner reservation. The two had a past encounter in 2016 when Harley called the authorities and paramedics after Kanye started behaving erratically during a training session, leading to his hospitalization for mental evaluation.
On Monday evening, around 9 PM, Kanye approached Harley at the resort in an attempt to embrace him, seeming to want to reconcile their differences. However, Harley rejected Kanye’s gesture. Concerned about the situation, the concierge offered Harley the option of hotel security, which he accepted.
Security personnel arrived at the scene, but by that point, Kanye and his team had already left, and there was no further interaction between the two. Kanye’s camp has stated that he is in Dubai to celebrate Thanksgiving with his children, while Harley, who owns several gyms in the Middle East, frequently visits Dubai for work and clients.
