Someone wanted to murder the Bieber.

A murder plot targeting Justin Bieber came to the light this afternoon. Apparently there were three men involved in a plan to kill and castrate the pop star in New York City last month. (Castrate too? Yikes.)

Convicted criminal Dana Martin, who is currently serving two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl in Vermont in 2000, devised the plot to kill Bieber at his sold-out Madison Square Garden show in November, KRQE News 13 reports.

Martin recruited former fellow inmate Mark Staake, who in turn allegedly recruited his nephew Tanner Ruane, to strangle Bieber and his bodyguard with a paisley tie and then castrate them, according to KRQE. Ruane even had the pruning shears. But the Bieber murder plot was foiled when Martin, who reportedly is an obsessive Bieber fan with a tattoo of the teen singer on his leg, turned in his accomplices.

Staake, 41, was arrested by federal agents on Nov. 19 in Vermont on violation of felony probation for aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon in New Mexico, News10 ABC previously reported. Ruane, 23, was arrested at a gas station in Rotterdam, N.Y., the following day. He was found with murder tools and documents containing information about the intended victims.

Martin’s murder-for-hire plot involved other targets as well, including multiple unnamed individuals in the St. Albans, Vt., area, News10 reported.

This is not the first murder plot to target Bieber.

Last October, an individual created a Facebook page threatening to kill Bieber while he performed at Peru’s National Stadium, according to Hollywood Life. “Justin Bieber you better not come to Peru, it will be the biggest regret of your life,” warned the page’s creator. There were also plans to throw eggs and water bottles at the singer at the show.

Here’s what I’m thinking. You plan on killing Bieber – and you turn to someone who loves the singer so much he had his face tattooed on his leg? C’mon, that’s just bad planning.

Look at this face. Who could hurt her him?

Wasn’t it the guy who is still behind bars that has the tattoo, and not either of the guys who were going to carry out his instructions? I’m just trying to figure out if the dude got someone in prison to do the tattoo…what a weird request! Most inmates do the crucifix, wives/gf’s/kids’ names etc…and he wasn’t Beiber? Super crazy. It is amazing that people can become so obsessed that they want to kill the object of their obsession…
