Hailey Bieber hit the Big Apple Wednesday for the launch of her Rhode skincare line with a fleet of cars comparable to the Secret Service.
The model, 25, was photographed riding around Manhattan in a sprinter van and three additional Escalade SUVs following closely behind her.
“Even [Hillary] Clinton has less Secret Service,” an eyewitness who is a longtime New York resident tells Page Six exclusively.
“I think I’ve seen Hillary roll with her van and one other secondary vehicle, but as far as other celebs, no one rolls that deep.”
Another source on the ground adds, “I have never seen a celebrity use three SUVs plus a sprinter van before.”
A rep for Bieber did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
According to a source, the former “Drop the Mic” co-host was spotted with a team of about eight people and three bodyguards, so it’s unclear why four large vehicles were needed.
We’re told Hailey’s husband, Justin Bieber, was not with her for the New York trip, as he is likely still in Los Angeles recuperating from his Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis, which has left his face partially paralyzed.
Had the superstar singer, 28, made the trip, then perhaps the car fleet would have been justified given that two stars and their respective teams were traveling around the city.
Ironically, Hailey has been praised for her work as an environmental activist, and it recently landed her a job as the global ambassador for Superga sneakers.
The company noted that because the Rhode founder was environmentally conscious, she was “the ideal choice to embody the brand’s shoes, crafted from cotton, rubber and aluminum,” according to Women’s Wear Daily.
The US Environmental Protection Agency reports that vehicles release about 1.6 billion tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere each year, mostly in the form of carbon dioxide, which contributes to global climate change.
