Yes, you read that correctly. Two former prison inmates had a twisted plot to try and kill the Canadian pop star.

This story only gets stranger, and stranger. Apparently a man serving time for raping and killing a girl in Vermont back in 2000 hired two of his old prison friends to first kill a couple of his old acquaintances in Vermont.

After the two were done in Vermont, they were supposed to go to Mew York City, and kill Justin Bieber and his body guard. It turns out that the man who hired them, Dana Martin, was obsessed with the singer, and even had a tattoo of him.

The two hired men were to strangle Bieber, and his body guard, and then castrate him with pruning shears.
