Selena Gomez

Target of Serious Death Threat

10/17/2011 3:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Selena Gomez stalker
Justin Bieber's girlfriend Selena Gomez has received a death threat that is so serious ... the LAPD's Threat Management Unit is on the case, and Selena has obtained a restraining order ... this according to court documents.

46-year-old Thomas Brodnicki -- a man with a criminal history of stalking -- allegedly told his shrink he was going to kill Selena.

According to the declarations of Selena and her lawyer, Blair Berk ... Brodnicki told the shrink he traveled from Chicago to L.A. to meet her, visited her workplace at least 3 times and has told people he had conversations with God about killing her.  Selena says she is in "extreme fear," believing he will carry out his death threat against her if he isn't stopped.

Selena and her lawyer claim Brodnicki was picked up for mental evaluation last month after he allegedly threatened to "scratch people's eyes out on the street."  Brodnicki allegedly made the threats against Gomez during his mental evaluation.

According to court docs, LAPD detectives are taking the threats "extremely seriously" because of Brodnicki's history of mental illness and making criminal threats.

It's so unfortunate that some mentally unstable people end up with these kind of unhealthy obsessions, however the amount of press celebs get over their stalkers is sickening when there's thousands to millions of non-famous people who deal with the same thing but because there back account is short a few zeros they aren't worth talking about.

I can't wait for the day people stop putting celebs on this ridiculous pedastool like their better then anyone else, newsflash they aren't.

This guy should never be allowed to walk the streets again. It would actually be nice to put him down like a dog. I dont care if you like Selena or not. She does not deserve this threat.

Seriously? this is creepy. No one deserves to be a target of Death Threat, she's just a girl living her dream, she's lucky enough to have millions of fans, including myself, and if someone doesn't like her cause she's dating with a major pop superstar shouldn't be a reason to wish her death or be the target of a creepy psychopath. This is not even funny and people should stop being stupid to her.

UNLIKE THE LA FBI, at least the LAPD is taking steps to protect Selena instead of jumping thru hoops to track down those who go after self absorbed celebrities who pose naked then raise a fuss when the pictures are revealed. This young woman's life does not deserve to be threatened and neither does any other woman's life. Hope the police find this sicko fast and put him away for good!

Honestly, Selena is such a wonderful human being. She is so sweet, and genuine, and beautiful. She does not deserve thi*****e, malice, and the living in constant fear. This has to stop. She is so lovely. This isn't fair for her or her family or her fans at all. Love and Support forever Selena <3
