Kim appeared to enrage Bieber fans over the weekend when she proclaimed on Twitter, "I officially have Bieber Fever!!!"
Biebs then posted a photo of him and Kim, writing, "Look its my girlfriend" – which apparently drove some of his fans to begin Twitter threatening the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star.
"I'm getting death threats," Kim Tweeted to Justin on Tuesday night. "This is unBeliebable!!!"
Sensing he might have a fan revolt on his young hands, Biebs asked his army of bang-loving lady listeners to retreat.
"ladies calm down. @kimkardashian is a friend," he wrote on Wednesday. "A very sexy friend but a friend. no need 4 threats. Let's all be friends and hang out often"
No word if Biebs' Tweet edict was enough to end his fan's Twitter assault on Kim.
