Security expert weighs in on viral video of Miley Cyrus at Grammys after fans spot small detail

Security expert weighs in on viral video of Miley Cyrus at Grammys after fans spot small detail

He opened up about the viral moment taking the internet by storm

There's been a whole load of celebrity buzz following the 66th Annual Grammy Awards over the weekend (4 February) but there's been one particular moment that's garnered quite the hype online.

In case you've been living under a rock for the past couple days, you'll know all about the viral video of Miley Cyrus walking the red carpet alongside her bodyguard after fans spotted something odd he was holding in hand.

The man in question can be seen walking alongside the 31-year-old 'Flowers' chart-topper with a large umbrella held in his hand closest to the singer, with his index finger flat on top of it.

Since then, a security expert has weighed in on the short clip that has seemingly sent the internet into a total frenzy.

Some fans speculated that the umbrella was actually the bodyguard's means of concealing a 'firearm' or 'assault umbrella' with one X user even speculating that his 'left arm is longer than right arm' and it’s a 'gimmick'.

"Real weapon concealed by the black coat. Oldest trick in bodyguard book," they go on.

"Bullet proof shield or concealed firearm," another guessed.

Well, to put all the fan theories to rest, security specialist Will Geddes has opened up to LADbible about what he really thinks was going on at the Grammys.

Fans speculated over what Miley Cyrus' bodyguard was holding at the Grammys.

The expert confirmed that 'tactical umbrellas' do indeed exist and are even available to buy online, explaining: "So if they are a licensed protection officer, which I would imagine Miley will have, then there's every good chance that he will be carrying a weapon anyway.

"But having said that, in terms of the umbrella, the umbrella is a really practical tool, you will see it being used by quite a few celebrities. And it's used for two reasons.

"And there are very special tactical umbrellas that you can actually buy. And these umbrellas are very, very rigid. They're not like your regular umbrellas, which just simply sort of fold if you hit someone with them, they're reinforced steel.

"And they can be used for two purposes - they can be used as a weapon, but they can also be used if you have someone who's either trying to jump in on your principal, trying to throw something at your principal, or even a very intrusive paparazzi, you could obviously open that umbrella and use it as a shield."

The security specialist continued: "And it's quite commonly done. I've used the tactical umbrella a few times. And you know, there's like a solid steel sort of frame.

The security expert explained that 'tactical umbrellas' do exist.

"So I mean, you could jack someone in the sternum or if you used it as a defence against a knife or something, it will be highly effective."

Will also added that someone as famous as the Hannah Montana star is likely to have a 'lot of threats continually' thrown her way from 'mad crazies fans and stalkers' so believes there's a 'good chance' her security team would use such a tool.

And, when asked what he reckoned about the rumours claiming the arm carrying the umbrella was fake and just for show to conceal the fact he was actually holding onto a weapon inside his jacket, Will explained: "I think 'fake arms', 'guns in umbrellas', I think that might be pushing it.

"But there are tactical umbrellas."

Well, there you have it.
