This famous name is a bit of an interesting case because her protection costs – a staggering twenty million dollars a year – are far more than her net worth, which is a mere ten mil. Of course, she’s married to a member of the British royal family.
Even if they have stepped down from official duties, they still require a lot of security. Husband Harry isn’t likely to sit on the throne, but the couple is still incredibly famous. They aren’t the only members of the household with steep security fees – and it’s likely to increase as their family grows.
Ever since 2008, when Perry released her first hit single, she's been an entertainment queen, going on to release dozens of hits, and get overshadowed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show by Left Shark. Her turn as a judge on American Idol made her even more famous, meaning anywhere this star goes, her bodyguard goes.
Her bodyguard, who is said to look like a young Hugh Jackman, has been with her for quite some time. It was thought that she would increase protection after the birth of her first child in 2020, but her long-term guard is sticking around too.
Another member of the British royal family makes an appearance. Anyone in the family has some kind of target on their back for any number of reasons, so when Harry was still taking royal duties, he had a team of fifteen security guards that watched over him and his wife, Meghan.
Some of the guards lived in the same house as Harry and Meghan, while there were other buildings that housed the rest of the security. Now that the couple has moved on from being royalty, they use a Los Angeles firm that runs them around eight thousand dollars a day. They might not be destined for the throne, but they're still huge names on the international scale.
Once stars become parents, security becomes much more important. This recording artist has made more than one change since becoming a mom, including beefing her security team as high as six, for which she pays anywhere from five hundred to a thousand dollars a day.
She, or her protection, made the decision that she would no longer crowd surf at her concerts. She's explained that she keeps so many bodyguards with her, thanks in part to the “lurk tweets” she gets before a show. She didn't go into much detail on what those were, but they don't sound very nice.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Rich and talented, this A-list couple knows the meaning of good security. Ryan Reynolds is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet right now, and wife Blake is no slouch in the acting department either. They now have kids, too, which means security costs have increased.
They've been spotted with numerous different bodyguards, but their security is always close behind. They have plenty of fans that want to get pictures or autographs, and paying hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for security is small against their combined net worth of over a hundred million.
