Hailey Bieber came to the Big Apple on Wednesday to launch her Rhode skincare line with a fleet similar to the Secret Service.
The 25-year-old model was photographed driving through Manhattan in a sprinter van and three additional Escalade SUVs following right behind her.
“Even [Hillary] Clinton has less secret service,” an eyewitness who has lived in New York for a long time told Vidak For Congress exclusively.
“I think I’ve seen Hillary roll with her van and another secondary vehicle, but as far as other celebrities, no one rolls that deep.”
Another on-site source added, “I’ve never seen a celebrity use three SUVs and a sprinter car.”
A Bieber representative did not immediately respond to Vidak For Congress’s request for comment.
According to one source, the former co-host of “Drop the Mic” was seen with a team of about eight people and three bodyguards, so it’s unclear why four large vehicles were needed.
According to the Mercedes-Benz website, a sprinter van can seat 15 people and each Cadillac Escalade can carry up to seven passengers, according to US News and World Report.
We were told that Hailey’s husband Justin Bieber was not with her for the trip to New York as he is likely still in Los Angeles recovering from his Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis, which has left his face partially paralyzed .
If the superstar singer, 28, had made the trip, perhaps the fleet of cars would have been justified given that two stars and their respective teams were touring the city.
Ironically, Hailey has been hailed for her work as an environmentalist and recently landed a job as a global ambassador for Superga sneakers.
The company noted that because Rhode’s founder was environmentally conscious, according to Women’s Wear Daily, she was “the ideal choice to embody the brand’s shoes, made of cotton, rubber and aluminum”.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that vehicles emit about 1.6 billion tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere each year, mainly in the form of carbon dioxide, contributing to global climate change.
