Pop star Jessie J has increased her personal security detail after a teen fan reportedly broke her leg to mimic the star, so says The Sun.
Jessie broke her foot when falling off a stage last year and now, she's receiving messages from a fan who emulated her and broke her own limb to be more like the "Domino" singer.
The fan even sent images of her foot to Jessie J's personal phone. A source said, "She's horrified this happened. Jessie's a really, really sensitive and kind girl who loves keeping in touch with her fans.But this incident was just too much for her and she ended up getting really frightened and upset. She was sad that a fan hurt herself to look like her – but she was also scared for her own safety."
With a gig on the UK version of The Voice, the singer is seeing increased fame, so it's best to increase the security around her, in turn.
The source finished, "She loves her fans but these things are unavoidable in this day and age. It happens to all pop stars as they become bigger. It's one of the downfalls of fame. Jessie would prefer it wasn't this way."
What do you think of Jessie J's fans breaking her leg to emulate and copy the singer? Crazy, right?
