Swift is one of the biggest musicians and celebrities on the planet and spends around four hundred thousand dollars a year on security. Thanks to her best-selling albums, constant media exposure, and her army of crazy fans, even such a high price seems like a steal.
She’s been a constant figure of gossip sites and social media, but Swift has not one but TWO bodyguards that keep to her heels to make sure the star stays safe. This includes doing things like, as the picture shows us, sitting in the back of a roller coaster. Even if you don’t like that, hundreds of thousands of dollars a year should make up for it.
Demi Lovato and their bodyguard Max are kind of famous when it comes to bodyguard-client relationships. They're always playing pranks on each other. Thanks to the “Lovatics,” as they call themselves, Demi needs a good amount of security. Max is their main man, but there are others, too, and Demi pays half a million dollars for the safety.
Max has defended the singer from criticism, saying that they're a wonderful person to work both with and for. He went on to say that Demi does everything they can to fans, friends, and family. Whether he's being totally truthful or likes the big payday, we don't know.
Any person with their name on a Hollywood Walk of Fame will have a bodyguard, and Streisand is no exception. This actress has been in movies, on stage, and even featured in music, so spending $125,000 for protection a year comes as no surprise.
She's always gracious when meeting fans, but someone who has been in the biz for so long certainly understands the need for security. Despite being entertainment royalty, her security bill is somewhat low, simply because she isn't one of the hot young stars from recent years. Still, her muscle is always close-at-hand – even genuine fans can do some weird stuff if they have the chance.
She isn't just wife to the future King of England; she's the mother of the future king, too. Again she's a member of the royal family, and her security costs greatly exceed her own professional worth, which is a mere seven million dollars.
Her safety, and the safety of her husband and children, are a top priority for the nation, meaning about twenty million dollars are spent to keep them all safe. A bevy of bodyguards takes Kate from point A to point B. The full cost is picked up by the Crown.
Gomez's bodyguard isn't just her personal protector – the two are also clearly friends. She was invited to his wedding and was even asked to make a toast. The toast was a heartwarming speech about how clearly her bodyguard loved his new wife.
Gomez actually employs a team of bodyguards when she's out in public places, though the one, in particular, is her main guy. It's no surprise that so many of these celebrities end up getting close with their security detail. They're together a lot, and you pay them to keep you safe – being a jerk boss does you no favors.
