Selena Gomez has been granted
a temporary restraining order
from a man police say has threatened the

will be required to stay 100 yards away from Gomez and her workplace until a
second court hearing on November 4th where the order could be extended for three
years.

Court documents reveal that the 46-year-old Brodnicki
claimed that he spoke with God about harming the teen pop star and traveled from
Chicago to Los Angeles to meet her. Police were notified by mental health
workers that Brodnicki had threatened to kill Gomez while on a psychiatric
hold.
