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.

the creepiest fact is that the guy visited her workplace three times and if i was Selena I would be scared from a 46 year old. i don't think bieber can protect her if he is actually her boyfriend. just because you have bodyguards does not mean they can react fast enough to someone being killed or an attempted killing

I LOVE Selly SO much and it hurts just thinking of any hurt on her. She is a very mature and decent, caring and modest sweetheart. How...I just dont get it. She deserves a full life of happyness, not this **** like threats and...the bigotry from many TSwift, MCyrus and JBieber fans. Selena is a genuine sweet beauty. Leave her alone!

While i understand that this is horrifically bad conduct, the media is overdramatizing this case.

"History of mental illness" can be anything. In and of itself, it means little.

"History of threats" means he threatened things, not that he carried them out.

Yes, he should be locked up, but please: the truly serious threats to a star like her would come from people who are not going to telegraph their intent.

I don't understand why they call Selena Gomez "Justin Bieber's girlfriend". I mean I know she is, but she was famous before him and has more talent then that little girl. Although I'll admit they're both extremely overrated and I'm over them both.

We've all read about these crazies before--they are to be taken seriously. I would be really afraid. Too bad they can't lock him up forever.

Why is Selena Gomez out after dark? Aren't there curfews for that 14 yr old girls have to be home before sunset?

God is telling me that I am destined to be the one to film Selena and Demi's sex tape.

"Dammit, Demi slow down"
"Selena, could you try to act more resistant, she is Seducing you into womanly desires. It's the how could something so wrong feel so right."

"CUT!!!! Mr. beiber try to keep the boob like out of the shot."

Thomas if you're reading these comments I know you have a burning desire to kill her but don't do it, at least not yet. Wait a while to see if your thoughts about her change. You don't want to do something you'll regret as once you kill her there's no going back.
You're a good man Thomas. Ignore all these people who talk badly about you. They don't know your thoughts or your feelings, only what they read online which is BS. You're better than them. :)
