Justin Bieber, if your crazy tween fans can't have you, then no one will!!
After 16-year-old Justin met 29-year-old Kim Kardashian at the White House Correspondents Dinner last weekend, the teen pop sensation posted a twitpic (a term that has never been more apt) of the two together and tweeted to his followers, "Look, it's my girlfriend!" Kim soon replied, "I officially have Bieber fever!!!" Then on Monday, Ryan Seacrest tweeted to Justin, "now she wants to know are you guys really dating? Ha Apparently you guys met at dinner last night in DC." Justin Bieber & 10 Celebs It's NOT OK To Crush On
So, all this playful tweeting plus the fact that Kim would probably get hauled off to jail for loving on a minor should have assured everyone that the "girlfriend" comment was a joke, right? Well, apparently some of the more severe symptoms of Bieber Fever are the inability to distinguish fantasy from reality and irrational murderous rage, because Kim claimed that she was a victim of fever-stricken fans on Tuesday night when she tweeted, "Seriously Biebs! I'm getting death threats from your fans! This is unBeliebable!!!" (Wow, we're actually pretty impressed with Kim's punniness.)
Of course, none of these alleged threats have been seen publicly, so this could be another example of Kim's obsessive famewhoring. Kim Kardashian's Ex Says She Loves Fame. Duh.
Whatever the case, Justin tweeted this message yesterday: "Ladies calm down. [Kardashian] is a friend. A very sexy friend but a friend. No need 4 threats. Let's all be friends and hang out often." And another crisis is averted by a celebrity Twitter stream.
