The man accused of stalking Selena Gomez admitted that the Disney starlet needs to be protected from him.
Thomas Brodnicki, who previously said that he had conversations with God about killing the 19 year old, submitted a sworn declaration stating, “I believe that a restraining order should be issued against me to prevent me from trying to contact Selena Gomez,” TMZ reported Wednesday.
A felony stalking charge against the 46 year old was dismissed by a Los Angeles judge last month due to a lack of evidence to prove that Brodnicki would carry out his threats against the actress and singer. Gomez then applied for a permanent restraining order, but the judge in the case refused to issue it until Brodnicki appears in court Jan. 6 to defend himself.
Brodnicki, who has a criminal history of stalking, does not want to attend the hearing and submitted the declaration to support Gomez’s claim.
“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 added in the declaration.
