Kevi claims that he receives death threats from Bieber's fans after the 'Baby' singer wrote his phone number and address on Twitter and tells his 40 million followers to get in touch with the rapper.
Rapper King Kevi has filed a petition to the court to seek restraining order against Justin Bieber and his friend, videographer Alfredo Flores. Kevi alleges that he is "being harassed" by the two and wants them to stay at minimum 150-yard away from him. Kevi claims that the "Beauty and a Beat" singer wrote his phone number and address to his 40 million devoted followers on Twitter and encouraged them to contact him.
"Justin Bieber and his camp released my number out to over 40,000,000 people and telling people to call it. This was followed by another tweet from him saying, 'I have never even met this kid Kevi, do you even fact check?' then said 'I'm glad my friends are people I have met before, kinda seems like that would make sense.' This caused me to look like a liar. These three tweets turned into a media frenzy," Kevi wrote in a court filing obtained by E! News.
In the court document, Kevi says that Bieber's fans sent him death threats and promises of harm. Kevi's petition was denied by a judge, but a date for hearing was scheduled for July 10 to hear more of the alleged action before making final ruling.
The rapper, whose real name is Kevin James Pedersen, told the site of the alleged action, "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. 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."
He also said that he did not have a chance to screen-grab the reported tweets because Bieber deleted them within seconds. A source told the site, however, that Bieber and Kevi "were never friends. [Kevi] totally made it up, as he has before with other folks."
