In today's social media age, celebrities are no longer the only figures in their respective camps who attract a large following. In fact, the men who protect them day in and day out have noticeably garnered a fan base of sorts of their own, over the years, based solely on their mystery and good looks.
From the OG of the protection game, Beyoncé's bodyguard, Julius de Boer, to new social media sensation Kylie Jenner's cute security guard, Tim Chung, we listed a few fine celebrity bodyguards you may be curious to learn more of.
Kylie Jenner's bodyguard, Tim Chung, didn't have the most pleasant introduction to the masses as he was labeled the alleged "true" father of Kylie's baby, Stormi Webster. While the rumor may have proven to be annoying to the reality starlet, it sparked a curiosity in those who found him attractive after the photo above went viral.
According to Page Six, protecting Jenner isn't Chung's only gig as he is, actually, a member of the LAPD. In addition to protecting and serving, he is also living the glamorous life as a model for companies like Black Tux and Wolf & Shepherd shoes.
Chances are, you've likely heard the name Julius in connection to Beyoncé at least once over the past 10 years.
The strikingly tall Amsterdam native has served as Yoncé's personal security since 2008 and was even present during the notorious elevator incident involving the megastar's sister, Solange, and her husband, Jay-Z, at the 2014 Met Gala.
The "Partition" singer definitely knows how to pick them as De Boer is well-experienced in much more than security. Page Six reports that he has a degree in psychology, practices Krav Maga, speaks five languages and started his own executive protection company, De Boer Security Global, when he was just 24. He now runs the entire enterprise from his offices in New York, London and Abu Dhabi.
Brooklyn Beckham's bodyguard, Justin Riblet, first became a social media sensation back in 2014 when he was pictured with his former boss, Jennifer Lawrence. As expected, his handsome face had the ladies asking for more on social media, but there's a lot more to him than meets the eye.
According to Page Six, he received his criminal justice degree from Rutgers University at Camden in 2007 prior to joining the Army, where he served as a Special Forces weapons sergeant. Since then, he has begun working closely with the Beckham family.
Lady Gaga, like Beyoncé, needed someone with a certain level of muscle to protect her, given her superstardom status, and it appears as she found it in this bald, blue-eyed Dutchman.
Peter Van der Veen may be known, today, for providing security for the likes of Mother Monster and Adele, but those who may find him familiar may have seen him earlier as he was crowned Mr. Europe in 2005.
Quick fact: Van der Veen, who is also a former Amsterdam cop, even lent his accented voice to the background on Gaga's popular song "Government Hooker," taken off her 2011 album, Born This Way.
Not much is known about Justin Bieber's muscle besides the fact that he loves to pump iron.
The Biebs' bodyguard, Evert Viera, has quite the muscular physique, and he really enjoys showing off his results. In fact, his Instagram bio simply reads, "I have to go to the gym."
If there was ever a story that perfectly articulated a bodyguard's resume, it would be this one.
Showing that he's the real deal, Kim Kardashian's bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, sprung into action after the reality starlet was ambushed by well-known creepy prankster Vitalii Sediuk during Paris Fashion Week. At the drop of a dime, Duvier pinned him to the ground as a warning that Kim K. is to never be touched.
Unfortunately, the 6-foot-4, 264-pound tower was not with the star during her heavily publicized robbery.
