The latest celebrity news and gossip surrounding the 18-year-old Disney Channel star and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador is that some of the more ardent Justin Bieber fans have expressed their discontent after the latest round of photos showing the two getting cozy together. After a picture of the two kissing on a private yacht in St. Lucia appeared, plenty of young Bieber fans Tweeted, threatening to “kill” Gomez should she break Bieber’s heart.
Entertainment website E! Online went to a former prosecutor to ask whether Tweeted threats are considered serious enough for law enforcement action. Because the threats were given over the web, any crimes would be under federal jurisdiction, but it would have to continue, worsen, or be more specific for Gomez t file a police report and have the authorities (in this case the FBI) investigate, and that hasn’t happened yet.
