One Direction will only accept the best of the best.
The British boy band has hired President Obama’s former secret service agents to protect them on the North American leg of their Take Me Home tour!
"They will be protected by some of the best security personnel America has to offer… There is significant concern that the group will be greeted by mobs of thousands of girls, which is too much for the normal team to handle. To make matters worse it is the US school holidays too."
The boys of One Direction will also have three ex-military servicemen, who served during the Iraq War, provide added security.
Hmm, we know these guys need protection from screaming fans, and though such high-level bodyguards may be a bit much, nothing is more important than our beloved 1D’s safety!
Be careful, guys!
