Selena Gomez Gets Three-Year Restraining Order Against Stalker

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Selena Gomez has been granted a long-term restraining order against the delusional man who allegedly stalked her and threatened to kill the singer-actress.

On Friday, a judge granted Gomez a three-year protection order against Thomas Brodnicki, who is said to have told people he had “conversations with God” about murdering Gomez and revealed to a psychiatrist that he made multiple visits to her workplace.

Brodnicki pled not guilty to stalking charges in November and had his case dismissed.

Gomez’s petition for the long-term protection was previously denied because Brodnicki had not been present to tell his side of the story, but on Friday her lawyer presented a declaration from Brodnicki himself that said “a restraining order should be issued against me to prevent me from trying to contact Selena.”

Police had characterized Brodnicki as a “serious threat” to the “Wizards of Waverly Place” star.
