A Burbank judge has granted actress Selena Gomez a temporary restraining order from a man officials claim made death threats against the 19-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star.

Authorities at a mental heath facility told police that Thomas Brodnicki -- a 46-year-old man with a history of mental illness -- threatened to kill or harm Gomez while he was on a psychiatric hold there.

Gomez, who’s dating teen star Justin Bieber, said in court docs she's in "extreme fear" of Brodnicki; he must keep at least 100 yards away from her, the court said last Thursday.

The issue returns to court November 4, at which time the current order could be extended for three years.
