Rapper King Kevi is seeking a restraining order against Justin Bieber, alleging that he received death threats after the pop star posted his phone number on Twitter.

In a court petition filed by King Kevi, he accuses Bieber and his videographer friend Alfredo Flores of harassing him. "Justin Bieber and his camp released my number out to over 40,000,000 people and [told] people to call it," he wrote in the filing.

The rapper, whose real name is Kevin James Pedersen, told E! that he's been forced to change his phone number and fears for his own safety as a result of Bieber's actions. "I've changed my number, but they still have my address," he said. "You don't know how scary these people are. They are die-hard fans. If they think Justin would be happy if I was stabbed, they would do it."

King Kevi continued: "Forty million crazy fans from all over the world are saying they want to stab me, come to my house and are giving out my address. Thankfully, I have a guard at the gate. It doesn't make me feel safe when you have 40 million people against me and all know my number and address."

He claims that Bieber posted the Tweets in retaliation against him after the media made up reports about their friendship. The Tweets have since been deleted, but Kevi is sticking to his guns, requesting that Bieber stay 150 yards away from him at all times.

Meanwhile, sources tell E! that Kevi has no connection to Biebs and that he made up their friendship, as he's done with other famous folks.
