We are all familiar with the cinematic idea of what a bodyguard should look like – a huge muscular man or woman who stands just a few steps away from the person being protected.
Both good and bad people in movies have bodyguards; in most cases they wear black suits and dark glasses. They don’t speak that much, but their presence and outfits are enough to send the message.
Think of Men in Black, but instead of warding off extraterrestrial beings, bodyguards tell everyone else to stay away from their employers; sometimes using persuasion, other times using intelligence, but every now and then using brute force.
People hire bodyguards for many different reasons, but they all have the same purpose: safety and security. If you’re an international business traveler or an executive at a local company, hiring bodyguards sounds like a good idea.
\Same thing applies if you have angry ex-spouse or receive social media threats. Some hire bodyguards only when they have to transport large amount of cash or valuable artifacts.
If you’re a big celebrity, having a bodyguard or two constantly on your side in public is almost mandatory.
And these celebrities’ security details are not to mess with.
10 Kendrick Lamar
No matter how impressive and rich Kendrick Lamar is, for sure he cannot afford to hire giants as his bodyguards, although apparently his mere mortal bodyguards look like real giants when standing next to him.
A few of photos of the Pulitzer-winning rapper with his bodyguard has been published online, and for sure you will notice something a bit staggering.
The bodyguard is about 50 percent taller that the employer. You must first remember that Lamar himself is only 5′ 4″ in height.
9 Kylie Jenner
Of all celebrities’ bodyguards, Kylie Jenner’s Tim Chung probably has the friendliest public image, but don’t be fooled by his charming smile.
Chung was once an LAPD cop, so it is safe to say that he has all the skills required to be a professional bodyguard.
He has the height to tower just about anyone trying to get too close to Jenner, and muscular built to demonstrate some real brute force at the same time.
Chung loves to play basketball, and he actually describes himself as entrepreneur, model, and actor. There has been rumor saying that he is the real father of Stormi, but it has been subtly addressed by both Jenner and Chung.
8 Cardi B
The main job of a bodyguard is to protect the employer, sometimes at all cost.
This is why we have heard news and seen footage showing that some bodyguards quickly took things to the next level for the sake of keeping their bosses safe, just like what happened in May 2018 when Cardi B declined to give her autograph for a fan.
Cardi was just outside her hotel when a 33-year old Bronx man approached her and asked for an autograph.
One of her bodyguards pushed the man to the ground and allegedly kicked him in the head. He was then taken to hospital. When it comes to Cardi B’s bodyguards, things escalated quickly.
The rapper and record producer Noel Fisher – known professionally as Detail – filed a lawsuit against a fellow artist Drake and his bodyguard.
The lawsuit claimed that Drake’s bodyguard broke Detail’s jaw as soon as he showed up at Drake’s mansion; Detail claimed he had invitation to go to the mansion.
Soon after, some photos circulated online, showing Detail in hospital bed with wires attached to his body.
The injuries were not very serious, but still he had to be treated for several days and received multiple surgeries.
The lawsuit was then dropped in 2018 because Detail failed to show up in court for final conference.
