Teen singer asks his supporters to leave reality star alone

Kim Kardashian has been receiving death threats from Justin Bieber fans.

The reality star has been inundated with online hate mail since the teen singer jokingly referred to her as his girlfriend.

Justin made the comment on his Twitter after posting a photo of himself with Kim at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington DC on Saturday.

Now his supporters are desperate to try to split’ them up.

Seriously Biebs!’ Kim, 29, wrote on her Twitter yesterday. I’m getting death threats from your fans! This is unBeliebable!’

Justin, 16, has since begged his followers to lay off Kim.

Ladies calm down,’ he wrote on Twitter.

Kim Kardashian is a friend. A very sexy friend but a friend. No need for threats. Let’s all be friends.’
