The 27-year-old Dubliner, aka ‘The Notorious’, has beefed up his personal security team and is now watched round the clock by security personnel.
He has complained of being stalked, but it’s not linked to an alleged threat by an AK-47 nut on Twitter earlier this year.
The featherweight champ was accompanied by two burly aides as he attended the VIP Style Awards in Dublin with long-term love Dee Devlin last Friday.
Conor happily posed for photos with fans and celebs on the red carpet, but later admitted he hired extra muscle after being targeted by deranged stalkers.
“Conor and Dee arrived around 30 minutes after most of the other red-carpet arrivals and they were accompanied by an entourage,” explained a source. “He’d two huge minders with him for the entire evening and although everyone was in great form, they didn’t leave his side once. One of them even waited directly outside the toilets when he nipped in at one stage!
“Conor was really relaxed and in great humor but the bodyguards didn’t let him out of their sight for even a minute. Anyone who wanted a picture or a quick word with Conor had to go through the minders. He told people their names were Rocky and Drago and that he’d hired them because of death threats.”
He was also protected by a team of guards during a 2014 Brazil trip.
His long time girlfriend Dee Devlin was crowned Most Stylish Newcomer at the fashion event on Friday night.
“Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me I really appreciate it!!” she posted on Instagram. And asConor would say.. ‘We’re not here to take part…!!!'”
