Hailey Bieber hit the Big Apple on Wednesday to launch her Rhode skincare line with a fleet of Secret Service-like cars.
The model, 25, was pictured driving around Manhattan in a sprinter pickup truck and three other Escalade SUVs following close behind.
“Same [Hillary] Clinton has less of the Secret Service,” an eyewitness who has been a longtime New York resident exclusively told Page Six.
“I think I’ve seen Hillary drive around with her van and another secondary vehicle, but as far as other celebrities go, no one drives that deep.”
Another source on the ground adds, “I’ve never seen a celebrity use three SUVs plus a sprinter van before.”
A representative 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 crew of around eight people and three bodyguards, so it’s unclear why four large vehicles were needed.
The Mercedes-Benz website says a sprinter van seats up to 15 people and each Cadillac Escalade seats up to seven passengers, according to US News and World Report.
We’re told Hailey’s husband, Justin Bieber, wasn’t with her for the trip to New York, as he’s likely still in LA recovering from his diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which left his face partially paralyzed.
If the superstar singer, 28, had made the trip, then perhaps the car park would have been justified given that two stars and their respective teams were moving around the city.
Ironically, Hailey has been praised for her work as an environmental activist, and it recently landed her a position as Superga’s Global Sneaker Ambassador.
The company noted that because the Rhode founder was environmentally conscious, she was “the ideal choice to embody the brand’s shoes, made from cotton, rubber and aluminum,” according to Women’s Wear Daily. .
The U.S. 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. .
