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.

You jealous gay guys, quit hating on Bieber for a moment and use some common sense to realize this is no joking matter. She feels afraid, and she has a right to. You seriously want to tell me you've never been afraid in your life? :/

Yikes!

Praying for Selena, AND law enforcement, so that they can get this jerk off the streets, and in jail where he belongs - out of society!

Before he gets institutionalized let him run amok in Crenshaw or South Los Angeles threatening to scratch people's eyes out.

Why is this man out on the street. He clearly needs to be checked into a psych ward.

Can I just ask...why do you have to start with "Justin Bieber's Girlfriend"? She existed before her relationship with Justin Bieber and, in fact, existed before him. That annoys me.

How come when it comes to these crazy people why arent their photos splatter all over the t.v. so people can keep a eye out for him when Selena is visiting around or on a tour so they can also help the police get him in stupid move..........

Any threat is very bad, saying you are gonna kill someone, however if selena wasnt an actress or famous, I am sure it wouldnt be presued that much. there are alot of people that are stalked everyday and threatned and it just gets pushed under the rug.

Oh please Death threats are hardly seem serious in 2011. More often then not they are false claims generated by the celebrity themselves in order to create press.
