Melbourne: Kim Kardashian has revealed that she received dead threats from Justin Bieber fans.

The socialite has revealed that the teen pop star`s fans, nicknamed `The Bliebers`, went "insane" and threatened to kill her after photographs emerged of them frolicking in the sea together.

"`The Bliebers`, they threatened to kill me. I really got death threats, it was insane. But he told them to back off and they did. I think it was all like a joke," News.com.au quoted her as saying.

The pair had been appearing in a secret shoot when images of them together emerged, sparking rumours they were an item.

However, Kim, 29, thinks it is ‘ridiculous’ people thought she could have been dating the 16-year-old singer.

She added in an interview on British station Radio 1: "Is that not ridiculous that people thought that Justin Bieber and I were on vacation together, on a romantic vacation, in the Bahamas and I just happened to wear a gown as my swimsuit, and red lips and he`s dressed in a suit in the ocean? There`s another shot where I was wearing a full trench coat with lingerie on underneath, thigh highs and heels walking to the beach. Seriously, who would walk to the beach like that?"
