NOMINEE Mimi Webb hit the Brits red carpet in jewellery worth £1.3million — and needing a bodyguard.
The singer, 22, was loaned the necklace and earrings by jewellery maker Tasaki.
But the brand insisted a security guard must be with the star, right.
A source said: “This is no ordinary piece of jewellery and it would have been an absolute headache if it had gone missing or got broken.”
Mimi recently opened up about how important it is for her to look after herself and switch off from work.
She reveals: “When I signed my record deal at 18 — four years ago — all I cared about was making sure everyone was happy. But now the main concern is me. I’ve grown as a person.
“At the end of last year, I had a bit of a situation where everything got on top of me.
“I get bad anxiety and I’d just finished my American tour and been away from home for a long, long time. When I got back to London I was straight back to work and it got too much.
“So, I started mindset coaching and learned how to control my thoughts more. Learning how powerful the brain is and having the strength to control it and dictate what goes on, helps.
“Your mind can conjure up thoughts and then you react to them. Dealing with anxiety and processing and learning from it is what’s made me stronger with every day.”
Mimi says her good friend and fellow Brit nominee Tom Grennan helped her through some of her difficult times.
“Tom is like a brother to me,” she says. “We are so supportive of one another and he’s been such a light. He’s really helped me when I started to suffer with anxiety. He’s given me great advice — he’s amazing.”
As well as Tom, Mimi says her closest friend in the music industry is singer Tate McRae who Mimi toured with last year. “Tate is an American artist, and we are very similar in age,” she says. “Whenever we’re close or in the same country, we try to meet up for a catch-up.
“She’s an absolute legend and I feel very protective of her as well.”
And if there was a famous person she could meet?
“Probably Harry Styles,” she says with a smile. “I’ve seen him at an event, but I’ve never spoken to him. I love the sound he’s created — I’m such a big fan.”
