Justin Bieber is urging fans to stop sending death threats to U.S. socialite Kim Kardashian - insisting they should "calm down" over rumours the pair is dating.
The Baby hitmaker recently admitted Kardashian was his ideal lady, and he was ecstatic when he got to meet her at the weekend (01May10) when they both attended the White House Correspondents' dinner.
Following their meeting, Kardashian took to her Twitter.com account to confess she had "Bieber fever", while the singer posted a photo of him with the reality TV star, referring to her as his "girlfriend".
But the comments sent Bieber's dedicated fans into a fury, and Kardashian was bombarded with threatening messages, causing her to tweet to the star: "I'm getting death threats from your fans! This is unBeliebable (sic)!!!"
Now Bieber has spoken out about the threats - begging his hordes of female fans to be friendly to his new pal.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "Ladies calm down. Kim Kardashian is a friend. A very sexy friend but a friend. No need 4 (sic) threats. Let's all be friends and hang out often".
