Big Brother

Shelly's Family Receives

Death Threats Over Jeff's Eviction

8/29/2011 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Big Brother" contestant Shelly Moore pissed off America when she voted to evict fan favorite Jeff Schroeder last week -- and now TMZ has learned her family has been receiving death threats from deranged fans because of the move.

Sources close to Shelly tell us ... the reality star's family has received multiple phone calls from people threatening violence ... even making threats against Shelly's 8-year-old daughter.

We're told Shelly's employer has also been receiving harassing phone calls -- demanding the company fire Shelly immediately because of the way she voted on the show.

Sources tell us Shelly's family is preparing to get the FBI involved -- because they're taking the threats VERY seriously.

UPDATE: "Big Brother" Executive Producer Allison Grodner released a statement on Twitter ... saying, "No matter how much you dislike an HG, this is wrong! True BB fans do not try to ruin lives. Please stop!"

I stopped watching after Jeff was evicted on Thursday night. It's unfair and wrong that Shelley's family is in danger because of Shelley's actions in the house. But she is the author of her own misfortune - and her perception to others outside. No one pointed a gun to Shelley's head, she freely auditioned for this show that allows people to watch you 24/7 just in the hopes of winning 500gs. She doesn't need the money yet still she left her daughter for two months for something... It's a shame that her family lives in fear now. For what, Shelley? For what?

The Jeff and Jordan obsession is lunacy? These two idiots have fans that will go to jail for them, why? Jeff is a 33yr old loser who lives at home and is a telemarketer... yes the ones that bug you during dinner. Jordan has an IQ of a 4th grader who is a ex coke wh0re who is a receptionist..

This makes me so sad and mad. As a loyal Jeff fan, I am disappointed that some over the top "fans" are making us all look bad, and for dragging jeff into this. He would not tolerate this behaviour and it is time these people stop and think about that. They will not get any respect from jeff for these actions. Its time to stop!!! I dont like what she did, but this is ridiculous!!! Enough!

It is STUPID for anyone to receive death threats and harass her kid or her job.I dont condone taking these measures for any reason however people are NOT MAD AT SHELLY FOR VOTING JEFF OUT..PEOPLE DISLIKE SHELLY FOR THE WAY SHE HAS PLAYED HER GAME.She says just shoot me straight dont lie to me and she has done nothing but lie to everyone in that house.I know it is suppose to be alright to lie in the Big Brother house but Shelly has used her daughter all the way through the show like she is playing extra careful not to do the wrong things in front of her daughter but then she cheats lies and steals..curses and swears smokes ...all the things that is a bad example..Anyway people is more mad at Shelly for the betrayal not the voting Jeff out

Jeff does not know what is going on...none of the house guests do....and if he did he would be outraged...so it's not "fans" doing this it some sickos getting their jollies..and they will be found out.

BB did respond. Executive Producer Allison Grodner sent out this tweet:

What is hilarious is Jeff and Jordan can do what ever they want and its part of teh game.. Jeff can bully and be a homophobe and Jordan can tell about her DWIS and drug use its all OK but if anybody PLAYS the game and does the smart thing and gets Jeff out and breaks up the couple its evil becasue Shelly misled them... THAT IS PART OF THE GAME YOU MORONS.

If you Jeff and Jordan loser fans dont even realize that they are a couple for TV only and are in this for money your insane. Its common knowledge in Chicago that Jeff is banging girls on the side.. Jordan is assexual and never even hardly sees him.... guliable J/J fans are hilarious.

Folks remember this is a game not real life, people are playing a game this isn't how people are in the real world. Death threats against a family and a little girl is just appalling.

A lot of hateful people commenting on other hateful people. I just dont get it. Kindness is always the better choice. two wrongs do not make a right. Perhaps opinions about jeff and jordan should be kept to yourself, as this isnt really about them. They aren't involved in this. Nor are the true fans and friends of the people on the show, so no need to attack them either. There is no need to be so hateful and spiteful against people you dont even know.

I hope the FBI tracks down all of the people that threatened her family and charge the hell out of them. I bet if jeffs fans watched the "live 24 hour" feeds they wouldnt have been fans of his, unless they also are racists and homophobes like he is.
