Disney star Selena Gomez has obtained a restraining order against a 46-year-old convicted stalker who allegedly planned to kill her based on conversations he said he had with God.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge William Stewart last week ordered Thomas Brodnicki, who is listed in court documents as staying at the America Motel in Los Angeles, to stay at least 100 yards away from Gomez, her parents and an assistant.
In court documents, Gomez said she feared Brodnicki “will harm them in his attempts to see me or to harm or kill me.”
The 19-year-old girlfriend of teen heartthrob Justin Bieber told the court, which issued the temporary restraining order Oct. 13, that Brodnicki visited her workplace at least three times.
Brodnicki allegedly has a long history of mental illness, and was twice convicted of stalking in Illinois. In one case, he was arrested after stalking a woman for years from a suburb of Chicago to Ames, Iowa, where she was attending college.
