Selena Gomez's obsessive fan restrained
Selena Gomez's stalker has had his temporary restraining order extended for three years.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William D. Stewart ruled today (06.01.12) that Thomas Brodnicki must stay at least 100 yards away from the 19-year-old star and her family until 2015.
The ruling follows a temporary restraining order which was granted in November while Mr. Brodnicki was locked away in a Los Angeles hospital on a 5150 psychiatric hold - which can be enforced if a person is deemed to have a mental disorder which makes them a danger to themselves and/or others.
Although he has since been released, the defendant did not appear in court but last month filed a declaration acknowledging and consenting to the order.
Selena - who is dating popstar Justin Bieber - first requested the protective order last year after Brodnicki allegedly told a therapist God had ordered him to kill the Disney starlet.
Speaking about his obsession with Selena previously, he claimed they would one day be together.
He said: "I'm very anti-material, I don't like even touching anything that isn't Selena Gomez.
"Selena Gomez and I are the holy chosen ones of God. I'm not overly concerned if I meet (Selena) in the flesh because it may be like scripture says ... 'No man has seen the face of God' ... Maybe us being together is too much like seeing the face of God."
