Report: Justin Bieber targeted in murder-for-hire plot
Thank god he is okay.
Alleged Justin Bieber murder plot revealed by convicted killer - Thunder Bay - CBC News
Convicted killer felt snubbed by 'J.B.'
Martin told investigators he wanted J.B. killed because he "has a measure of fame" and Martin had "become infatuated" with him.
Martin has a tattoo of J.B. on his leg and attempted to contact him several times, but became upset when J.B. did not respond, the affidavit says.
The affidavit said this perceived slight and Martin's belief he was a nobody in prison led him to start plotting to kidnap and murder J.B.
Martin told investigators "he was seeking a measure of notoriety so that there would be people outside of prison who would know who he ... was."
The Canadian singer's management, asked to comment on the reports, released a statement saying only that they take "every precaution to protect and insure the safety of Justin [Bieber] and his fans."
