TMZ reports that Selena Gomez has received a serious death threat. The Los Angeles Police Department’s Threat Management Unit is investigating the matter after the singer obtained a restraining order against her stalker, Thomas Brodnicki.
Brodnicki, a 46-year-old man with a history of stalking, reportedly told his therapist that he was going to kill the pop star. The police are said to be taking the case very seriously due to the man’s criminal history and mental condition.
