Selena Gomez Death Threat Is No Joke

Selena Gomez may seem like she is on top of the world in her career and relationship, but it's not all rosy for the Disney star who has received a pretty credible death threat recently. The threat is so serious that the LAPD's Threat Management Unit is working on it and she has a restraining order.

Forty-six-year-old Thomas Brodnicki is a man who already has a criminal history of stalking. He allegedly told his shrink he was going to kill Selena. Brodnicki told his therapist that he had gone to her workplace at least three times and has told people he had conversations with God about killing her. 

Sources say Gomez is in "extreme fear" and who could blame her? The 19-year-old has just been exposed to one of the worst parts of fame and it's the reason many would rather not be famous.

It's the downside of fame and Gomez has every reason to be seriously fearful. Celebrities have been killed by stalkers, including John Lennon and Rebecca Schaeffer. For Gomez, this is also familiar territory. 

After pictures of the singer and her boyfriend Justin Bieber surfaced last May, many of Bieber's fans, known as Beliebers, posted messages on Twitter threatening to kill the brunette.

One Bieber fan posted: "I'm gonna kill ya in the night underneath your smell bed."

Someone else said: "Selena Gomez is dangerously close to a long, slow painful death."

Keep it classy, Internet! Crikey. People are straight up nuts and it's a scary world we live in. I mean, look no further than the comments section on any website (including here) and you will always see the crazies out in full force. It's scary what people who are unhappy with their own lives will project onto people whose images or words are projected into their homes each day and night.

Strangers may feel like they know celebrities, but they don't. They know nothing about them. It would be great to live in a world where these kind of incidents happened less, but as long as there are crazy, bored, and miserable people with the Internet and television, we will just need better restraining orders.

Let's hope Gomez stays safe.

Does this scare you?
