Cops in New Mexico say they’ve uncovered a plot to kill Justin Bieber that would have taken place in New York.

According to police, the plot was to castrate Bieber and his bodyguard before strangling them to death.

The mastermind of the plan is a New Mexico prisoner serving two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl.

Reports say he’s obsessed with Bieber and even has a tattoo of the singer.

He allegedly convinced another prisoner and his nephew to join the plot.

All three men are in custody and face charges of conspiracy to commit murder.
