One Direction are about to embark on a tour of terror across the US and since teen girls are batshit insane, they’ll need some good security to protect them from flying training bras and notebooks with “I <3 Liam” written 500 times across the cover. Not just any security team will do, either – instead, they’re hiring some of Barack Obama’s former security personnel to accompany them across the country. Oh, f-ck off.
From The Sun:
Beefed-up security to combat crazed fans also includes crack troops who served in Iraq.
Tour chiefs fear Liam Payne’s split from dancer Danielle Peazer will make the heart-throb, 19, top target for besotted teens.
The tour kicks off in Florida on June 13 — and fan websites have already posted details of the boyband’s hotels.
Last night an insider said: “Liam becoming single has made things even more fraught. Some of the security staff have worked with Obama and in war zones.”
