Throwing out Selena Gomez’s stalker’s —Â Thomas BrodnickiÂ — case may not have been the best decision JudgeÂ Edmund Clarke Jr. has everÂ made. Brodinicki had made crazy claims that God had instructed him to kill her. Still, the death threat didn’t hold water in court. But there’s a twist in the case now: Brodinicki himself has admitted that he’s a danger to Gomez, reports TMZ. Apparently, he signed a sworn declaration that states, “I believe that a restraining order should be issued against me to prevent me from trying to contact Selena Gomez. I do not wish to object to the restraining order against me because I know it is the only thing that will make me stay away from Selena.” He said this because he wants it used as reason to prevent him from going for a scheduled court hearing in January 6. Will someone please grant that restraining order now?
People need to chill the *beep* out.Â Paula AbdulÂ andÂ Nicole ScherzingerÂ voted off The X Factor favorite Drew RyniewiczÂ and the reaction is downright scary. Fans have lashed out at both of them on Twitter and Facebook with violent abusive messages. The’ve been coming in waves and Paula and Nicole are, understandably, worried that someone will act upon the death threats. We have a feeling security’s going to get beefed up on the show very quickly.
Poor Selena Gomez! TMZ reports that 46-year-old Thomas Brodnicki has been telling people that God has instructed him to kill her. He has a history of mental illness, criminal stalking and making threats, so LAPD’s Threat Management Unit is taking this “extremely seriously.” Selena’s gone and got herself a restraining order against him as well, stating she’s in “extreme fear.”
The story was revealed through Selena’s lawyer, Blair Berk, in documents seeking the court order. Brodnicki apparently told his shrink that — apart from revealing his delusions instructions from God — he’s also traveled from Chicago to L.A to see her and has also visited her workplace three times. Selena and her legal team also stated that it was after Brodnicki supposedly threatened to “scratch people’s eyes out on the street” that he was scooped up for mental assessment, during which he made his admission about the singer.
Mistakes? Glee creator Ryan Murphy has made a few. Then again, too few to mention. Just kidding! Murphy has made so many mistakes while making his hit Fox show, he can’t help but list them off for us now. “Listen, I’ve screwed up in hindsight. I admit it,” Murphy told Deadline. “I think the condom demonstration was a road to far. I think showing a kid masturbating was a bridge too far.” Despite the show’s many Emmy nominations, the creator of Nip/Tuck sighs, “I think our first season was spectacular. I think our second season was good.” Ah, but which season was the one to feature McKinley High student Jacob Ben Isreal using the library for more than studying? Only then can you know what you should truly regret!
As for the prominence of actor Chris Colfer and his character’s Kurt struggle as a gay teenage, Murphy said, “I think that sometimes we get a bit preachy. I have felt that with the gay thing. I think sometimes we say in three sentences what we can say in one.” However, fabulous eye rolls and Broadway belting aside, the man behind the New Directions has no regrets for the show’s attempts to depict Kurt’s struggle as a normal one, so much so that there is still a possibility for a Glee spin-off for his character, among others. “I’ve gotten death threats, yes. I have,” Murphy says. “I think anytime you shine a spotlight on homosexuality or minorities and you try and say they are as normal or as worthy as acceptance as others, the people who are on the fringe don’t like that and they will come after you. And they have come after me. I think it’s such a great show for young kids. The values of it, I think, are great.” So, we can all agree…it was pretty much just masturbation scene that was a big misstep.
