According to his account, the former cop/Chippendales dancer was just trying to figure out when Kimye would be ready to leave for the Met Gala -- as he had received word that plans had been changed:
"They were getting ready for Met Gala. I was sitting downstairs in the Waldorf, and it was around 6pm. I got some information that they were looking to rent a Lamborghini, or something of that nature. He said they had called their driver down to see if he could obtain the sports car. He tried, but he couldn't as it was last minute.
I went upstairs to see what was happening as we were supposed to be driving them. I just wanted to make sure we were ready when they were ready. I went up to the floor to the Presidential Suite. I was walking and the door was open and I happened to see Kim. I thought I'd ask her or the other security or assistant if there was a change of plan. As I was walking up to Kim and the room, Kanye walked by. He came from around the corner and saw me walking towards the room. I turned around and said 'Hey Mr West… how you doing?'"
