Selena Gomez is facing a new death threat, sources confirm, and this one is a lot more serious than any Twitter messages left by Justin Bieber fans.
According to TMZ, LAPD’s Threat Management Unit has responded to a restraining order obtained by Gomez against a 46-year old crazy person named Thomas Brodnicki.
Brodnicki was reportedly picked up for mental evaluation last month after threatening to “scratch people’s eyes out on the street.” During sessions with a psychologist, he allegedly said he traveled to Los Angeles to meet Selena; visited her place of work on three occasions; and talked with God about murdering the singer.
Court documents reveal that Gomez is living in “extreme fear” of this taunt and that detectives are taking it seriously. Brodnicki has a history of mental illness and of issuing criminal threats.
