Selena Gomez has had problems with an intruder making entry to her new property on at least two occasions within the last few weeks, not to mention other instances of trespassing and death threats while she was living elsewhere. While the pop diva lives in a gated community in Calabasas, California, she still feels vulnerable and has increased security around her home in an effort to prevent any future occurrences.
Gomez purchased her $3 million Calabasas estate just last month but she simply does not feel at home. Instead, she is scared. Within days of making the move to her new house, Gomez encountered an intruder, Chi Cruz. She called the police and he was arrested. He plead no contest to the charges and was slapped with probation and told to stay away from her. After serving just two days in jail, he was released.
However, he did not listen to what he was told. When Cruz was released from jail, it did not take him long to return to Gomez’s home and make entry onto her property again. Once more, police were called to the scene and Cruz was arrested and hauled away to jail, but this time he will not get off so easily. Trying to protect himself against time in the slammer, he pleaded not guilty to the second offense of trespassing, but who is he kidding – he was apprehended and arrested on the property. This second arrest puts Cruz in violation of the probation he was sentenced with from the first offense of trespassing on her property. Now, he has been slapped with a felony, and if convicted, he could be looking at some serious jail time; up to four years, which would be good for Gomez. At least she would not have to worry about him prowling around her property because he would be in jail.
While Cruz is no longer a threat, Gomez was at home both times Cruz crept onto the premises and she is afraid it could happen again with a different prowler. While her home sits within the confines of a gated community, oftentimes, there is not an attendant at the gate and people can pass through undetected rather easily. Therefore, Selena Gomez has decided to take matters into her own hands and increase security around her home by erecting a full perimeter gate around the house, which will make it more difficult for crazed fans and or lunatics to get to her.
Gomez’s common sense approach to security will go a long way toward keeping her safe now and in the future. It is best that she take any means necessary to protect herself against scumbags who may try to make illegal entry onto her property. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry because once something bad happens, it cannot be undone.
Gomez is a young, attractive pop diva who is loved and adored by thousands; therefore, she will always have to worry about the occasional nut job trying to get too close or threatening her in some way. However, Selena Gomez has her head on straight when it comes to being safe and she is proving that 100 percent by increasing security around her home.
