Selena Gomez targeted by death threat -- report

selena-gomez-vma-gi.jpg19-year-old Disney star Selena Gomez received a death threat serious enough, reports TMZ, to cause the LAPD's Threat Management Unit to issue a restraining order.

Thomas Brodnicki allegedly told his therapist that he traveled to Los Angeles to meet Gomez, visited her workplace and apparently said he had conversations with "God" about killing her. Neither Gomez nor boyfriend Justin Bieber have commented on the case publicly.

Brodnicki apparently has a history of mental illness and stalking, which is why the LAPD is considering him a "serious threat."

According to Chicagoist, Brodnicki was arrested in 2008 after cyber-stalking a woman with whom he wanted to start an "elite blue-eyed, blond-haired" race for 8 years. He spent some time in a mental health institution, but was later released.
