Justin Bieber fans they are not: Two men allegedly plotted to castrate and murder the superstar singer.
Wannabe hit men Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane planned to execute the Bieb during the pop star’s performance at Madison Square Garden in November, court papers filed in New Mexico say.
The duo allegedly hatched the sickening scheme after Staake met convicted killer and obsessed Bieber fan Dana Martin during a stretch in a New Mexico state prison.

Martin, who has a tattoo of Bieber on his leg, was convicted of raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl in Vermont in 2000.
Cops busted Staake and Ruane en route to Vermont, according to court papers, and later found pruning shears in their vehicle.
“We take every precaution to protect and ensure the safety of Justin and his fans,” manager Scooter Braun said.
