A 20-year-old wannabe rapper has filed a restraining order against Justin Bieber, claiming the singer released his personal phone number to the world.
Kevin Pederson, also known as ‘King Kevi’, claims he and Bieber used to be friends – but says Justin was told by his people to stop being seen with him because they thought he was a bad influence.
“He’s not really supposed to be seen with me now, I guess,” Kevi told Radar Online. “But we’re cool.”
However, when the rapper began receiving death threats from Justin fans after the 19-year-old reportedly shared his number, Kevi decided to get a restraining order against him in order to keep Bieber at least 150 yards away at all times.
“Forty million crazy fans from all over the world are saying they want to stab me, come to my house and are giving out my address,” Kevi told E! News.
“Thankfully, I have a guard at the gate. It doesn’t make me feel safe when you have 40 million people against me and all know my number and address… (Bieber) is trying to disown me just to protect his image.”
According to E!, Pederson’s request for a restraining order was initially denied by a judge, but a new hearing is scheduled for July 10.
Meanwhile, Justin’s camp has completely denied everything – including that the singer has ever even met Kevin.
A source told E! “(They) were never friends. (Kevi) totally made it up, as he has before with other folks.”
Gossip Cop was also told that Bieber has “never met” Pederson before. “He doesn’t know who he is,” the source insists, adding that the rapper is “delusional” and a “complete liar.”
