Selena Gomez has been granted a long-term restraining order against stalker Thomas Brodnicki, reports TMZ. Presiding judge had previously refrained from providing her with lasting protection as Brodnicki was being held in a psychiatric facility & could not defend himself against allegations he threatened to kill her.
The ruling was the result of Brodnicki accepting that Selena needed to be given a restraining order and in a court filing he wrote: ‘I do not wish to object because I know it is the only thing that will make me stay away from Selena.’ Tom claimed to have had ‘over 50 conversations with God a day about killing Ms Gomez’.
Selena told In Style: ‘I went to Ghana with Unicef and I was struck by how eager the kids were to get an education. That’s something we take for granted in the United States. There have been so many times when I’ve said, ‘I hate homework, I hate math’, but they’re literally begging for it over there.
And I met a teenager who travelled from village to village protesting the lack of education and he once had a machine gun pointed at his head as a result. I was completely floored to hear he went through that- and at the age of 14!
Every day, there’s one little thing I’m complaining about whether it’s my hair or that I’m waking up too early, but my encounters with the people of Ghana have made me snap out of it. & I encourage everyone, especially younger people, to help kids who are less fortunate than we are.’
