Justin Bieber: Obsessed fans deluge London hotel with 2,000 fake calls
JUSTIN Bieber fans have made more than 2000 phone calls to the London hotel where the Canadian pop star has been staying during his visit to Britain, it has been reported.
Receptionists at London's Royal Garden Hotel, west London, have reportedly been inundated by fans asking to be put through to the 18 year-old’s suite.
Desperate to speak to their idol, who is in the British capital promoting a new album, Believe, many had concocted imaginative fake identities in an effort to bypass staff.
The fans, worshipped by female fans dubbed the “Beliebers”, have attempted to use names of the singer's relatives and his friends from home while one even claimed to be his personal stripper.
It was claimed that due to the deluge of fan calls the hotel, located next to Kensington Palace, has been forced to change its phone number after lines were jammed.
"Justin's fanbase are relentless — they will do anything to get near him,” a “source” told The Sun on Wednesday.
"The phones in the hotel haven't stopped ringing since he arrived.
"Staff knew there would be pandemonium but not to this extent."
Fans have been sent into a frenzy after he gave them a “cheeky glimpse” of his stomach from his hotel window before sneaking off for a 99p McFlurry from a nearby McDonald's.
The star, said to be worth millions, tweeted to his nearly 21 million followers on Twitter:
Twitter: Justin Bieber - eating a steak and gonna get a good night's rest and relax. I hear u guys outside the hotel...and I LOVE U! >
“Eating a steak and gonna get a good night's rest and relax. I hear u guys outside the hotel...and I LOVE U!”

At the launch of his album at a central London nightclub, in a bizarre effort to stop details leaking that guests were frisked with metal detectors, the Daily Mirror reported.
Bieber is currently dating Selena Gomez, a 19-year-old actress best known for her Disney Channel appearances.
The singer has revealed he has written a song about Mariah Yeater, the woman who accused him of fathering her child.
She dropped the claim after he offered to have a DNA test.
