Eagles of Death Metal's Jesse Hughes Accused of Voodoo Death Threats

EXCLUSIVE

Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes is being accused of not only making death threats against an ex-buddy, but attempting to curse him ... if you believe in that kinda thing.

Jesse's former friend, Andrew Julian Vega, got a restraining order against the rocker. In the docs, he says Jesse threatened to shoot him and blow his lungs through his back. He also says Jesse glued a voodoo doll on his gate, stabbed it with a knife and wrote in red paint, "Andy is next."

People connected to Jesse and Andrew tell us the bad blood started over a girl ... naturally.

In the docs, Andrew says he's nervous Jesse will hurt him or his young daughter. A judge granted the restraining order ... forcing Jesse to stay 100 yards away from them.

We've reached out to Jesse, so far no word back.
