Police in New Mexico say singer Justin Bieber was the target of a bizarre murder plot that officers discovered after arresting two fugitives who planned to kill the singer along with his bodyguard.
The alleged murder plot, by a convicted killer, involved plans to castrate the teen pop star.
Investigators said the murder conspiracy called one of the men to carry out the plan upon his release from jail.
The murder was set to have taken place in November at New York City's Madison Square Garden during one of Bieber’s concerts.
Investigators say that for some reason one of the men had a change of heart and contacted police about their plans. The man is said to have been infatuated with Bieber, and even had a tattoo of the pop star.
