Why does this famous boxer need so much protection? Well, simply put, he’s famous. But he’s also known to be carrying at least $250,000 in cash on his person at all times. He takes his security seriously, paying three-quarters of a million dollars a year to keep himself and his loved ones safe.
This group of powerful people is called The Money Team (as captions on their shirts), and they have yearly salaries of $150,000 per year, as well as expensive cars and Rolex watches as part of their perks. Their jobs might be important, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy it.
Peter Van Der Veen is one of the most popular celebrity bodyguards out there, and part of that is because of his stellar record watching over Lady Gaga. It didn't matter if she was just walking to the store or around the world for a concert, Lady Gaga always has security with her – and no surprise, too, given her amount of fame and riches.
Pete's bodyguarding abilities spread through word-of-mouth in the entertainment industry. His physical strength and stature are enough to keep over-eager paparazzi from getting too close to whoever he's guarding. However, his services cost a pretty penny – around a hundred thousand dollars a year.

Since Lawrence tends to keep to herself when she isn't playing the part of the star or doing marketing, she doesn't have as much of a need as some other stars, but she'll still happily pay the $125,000 per year salary if a bodyguard is needed.
Harry Styles is a big Mick Jagger fan. He's such a big fan that he hired the Rolling Stones' member's bodyguard. It wasn't just a fan of classic rock that pushed him to do so, however. Following an incident in London in early 2020, Styles decided that some more personal protection would be a good idea – and now he's paying a million dollars a day.
The former One Direction member was stalked, and then shortly after, he was mugged. These back-to-back incidents brought about all that extra security. He's still out and about with friends, but his bodyguard is always close at his side.
