Reports from the US say an alleged murder plot against Justin Bieber has been thwarted by police

Justin Bieber has performed at a US gig, as an alleged thwarted murder plot on the teen star was revealed.

The Canadian pop star took to the stage at Power 96.1â?²s 2012 Jingle Ball concert in Atlanta, Georgia, after two men were arrested for allegedly plotting to kill him, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"We take every precaution to protect and insure the safety of Justin and his fans," Justin's manager Scooter Braun told Us Weekly.

KRQE-TV reported that ex-convict Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane from Alberquerque were accused of a plan to stalk and kill the singer when he visited New York for his Madison Square Garden show in November.

The duo were arrested by police following a tip-off.

Justin made no mention of the events on Twitter, instead focusing on his Atlanta show.

"That was fun ATL. Always good to be back here. Thank u to big bro @ Ludacris for coming out on stage tonight. it got LOUD! haha. #MUCHLOVE," he wrote after the gig.
