Teen actress and pop star sensation, Selena Gomez, has received a death threat so serious the case has been taken up with the LAPD's Threat Management Unit.
According to court documents, Justin Bieber's girlfriend has taken out a restraining order against 46-year-old Thomas Brodnicki, a man with a criminal history of stalking.
This is all stems from Brodnicki telling his shrink he was going to kill Gomez. He told his shrink he traveled from Chicago to L.A. to meet her, and visited her at work at least three times according to statements made by Gomez's lawyer Blair Berk.
Gomez says she is extremely scared, believing if he isn't stopped he'll do it.
The stalker reportedly has told people he has had “talks with God” about killing Gomez.
The threats were made against Gomez after he had his mental evaluation. Brodnicki allegedly threatened to "scratch people's eyes out on the street" during this same evaluation according to TMZ.
The threats are being taken seriously because of the stalker's history of mental illness and making criminal threats the LAPD detectives said in a statement.
Despite the recent troubles, Selena Gomez did not let the threats stop her from performing Monday night as she performed at the sold-out Saddledome in Calgary.
Nearly 14,000 kids came out to see the 19-year-old perform as she played a few of her hits, "A Year without Rain," "Round and Round," and "Love You Like a Love Song."
