U2’s Adam Clayton: Paranoid or Prudent?

From the Irish Star. Click for more.Word from the Dublin Planning Commission is that U2 bass player Adam Clayton wants to build a “security lodge”–an HQ for armed security guards–on his property.

The application calls for a one-storey building at the entrance to his 18th century house.  After 20 years, he feels he needs a little more protection.

Then again, his ex-PA/housekeeper did get sent to jail last summer for embezzling nearly $5 million of Adam’s money while living rent-free in the house.

    The poor guy has been much too trusting. He was taken advantage of by someone he trusted for many years. No wonder he has his guard up now. It's funny how this becomes news. Just about every celebrity in Hollywood has security guards or a guard shack posted for extra security. He should be no different. U2 are the biggest stars in the world.
