Singer/actress Selena Gomez gets a much needed relief after the court granted her request for a temporary restraining order against a mentally deranged fan who threatened to harm her. The court in Burband in the north downtown of Los Angeles barred a certain Thomas Brodnicki to stay 100 yards (90 meters) away from Gomez and her workplace until a Nov. 4 hearing, when the order may be extended for three years.
Gomez earlier sought for the TRO after he felt extreme fear due to the threats of Brodnicki. According to earlier reports, the 46-year-old suspect had threatened to harm or kill the actress while on a psychiatric hold. Gomez, who is known as the girlfriend of teen pop superstar Justin Bieber, became popular around the world for playing Alex Russo in the Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel television series Wizards of Waverly Place. The y oung star also subsequently ventured into feature films and has starred in the television movies Another Cinderella Story, Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie, and Princess Protection Program.
