Justin Bieber's Madison Square Garden concert last month nearly had far more theatrics than anyone planned.

The singer was at the center of an insane plot by three men to murder and castrate him at the show! The evil plans also included killing and castrating Justin's bodyguard.

Fortunately, two of the men, Tanner Ruane and Mark Staake, were busted for the plot over a week before the show. Authorities also found pruning shears that Mark was going to use for Justin's castration. The orchestrator of the attack, Dana Martin, is already serving a life sentence for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl, according to the New York Post. He commissioned the two men to castrate Justin -- at the price of $2,500 a testicle! -- from behind bars.

Reportedly, Martin first met Staake while they were doing time in a Las Cruces, NM prison, then recruited him for the murders (and two others) when Staake was released. Staake then recruited Ruane to help. But in a bizarre twist of events, Martin tipped off authorities and both men were busted -- Ruane in Vermont on November 19 and Staake in upstate New York on November 20.

Though Dana Martin might be more of a Belieber than you'd think... he has a tattoo of the singer on his leg.

“We take every precaution to protect and insure the safety of Justin and his fans,” said Justin's management in a prepared statement. They have declined to comment further.


So... are you totally creeped out or what?
