Justin Bieber has an 'army of giants' who guard him when he sleeps

05 December 2013, 12:37

Los Angeles - Justin Bieber insists on having a security guard watch him sleep.

The 19-year-old singer is reportedly growing increasingly "paranoid" about crazed fans breaking into his hotel room so has employed a 24-hour "army of giants", and even has two in reserve to cover when his regular minders need breaks.

A source said: "Justin can't be alone at night right now.

"He is paranoid about fans breaking into his room, and he hears noises all the time.

"It freaks him out. As well as the ever-present guard in his room and the one outside, he also has two on standby to take over when his men need breaks.

"All of the burly guys are around 1.9m tall and weigh around 115kg.

"He wants an army of giants protecting him."

Begged his mom to join him

And even when the Believe singer's world tour concludes in Australia next week, he has no plans to ease off his tough security arrangements.

The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: "Justin is now used to having a guard watch him sleep and he wants the arrangement to continue after the tour finishes."

Despite being protected by burly security guards, this hasn't been enough for the teenage star - he also "begged" his mother Pattie Mallette - who recently released a book, Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom - to accompany him on the road for extra reassurance.

The source said: "He also begged his mother Pattie to accompany him on most of the concert dates.

"She was asked to combine her book signing tour with his gigs because he gets so anxious."
