TikTok star dancer Charli D’Amelio hires protection after threats and swatting Incidents – The Sun

July 31, 2020

TIKTOK's most popular user had to hire bodyguards to protect her from a threat someone would show up at her home.

Charli D'Amelio, a dancer with over 75 million followers on TikTok, received a threat on social media on earlier this month that someone would show up outside her home.

Despite no one showing up outside her home just yet, D'Amelio's family hired round-the-clock security to safeguard their home.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ the police are investigating the incident.

The D'Amelio family is paying the police for the overtime they need to keep an eye on their property for now, given this isn't the first time D'Amelio has had run-ins with threats and the law due to her fame.

D'Amelio has been a victim of "swatting," referring to when random people falsely file a police emergency at another person's home.

The TikTok star has been the victim of multiple "swatting" calls in the past, where police have shown up to her home and have found no evidence of an emergency.

The dancer first began posting her dance videos online in the summer of 2019, quickly growing to her 75 million-plus follower fame today.
