Bosses at production company Summit hired the security team while Pattinson was filming his new movie Remember Me, OK magazine reports.
However, the actor has allegedly decided to keep the bodyguards following the incident in New York’s Union Square where he was almost pushed under a car by a group of fans.
"If it hadn''t been for the quick-thinking of two members of his team, he could easily have been a goner. He was pushed off the sidewalk by the sheer number of fans who were trying to get close to him and fell against the door of a moving vehicle,” News.com.au quoted a source as saying.
"If his clothing had got caught or a foot had gone under the car there's no doubt he would have been dragged along and seriously hurt," the source added.
