(Newser) – Chris Brown has beefed up his security detail after receiving death threats over his alleged beating of ex Rihanna, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Insiders say Brown is surrounded at all times by three beefy bodyguards and three or four “incognito” protectors who are often women “easily as tough as any man.” Authorities think the “group” threatening the singer might actually be a single person.

The threats are addressed from the “Women’s Protection Action League.” Insiders say the threats are definitely tied to the singer’s alleged attack on Rihanna. Brown is said to be “totally paranoid” about an attempt on his life, as evidenced by the robust protection detail. There are also hints that the assassin could be disguised as a paparazzo, whom Brown assiduously avoids.
