Seriously? Just a couple hours after Justin Timberlake was swatted, LAPD was called to Selena’s home in what appears to be another swatting prank!

Selena Gomez is the latest victim of a swatting prank scheme that is running rampant in Hollywood! On April 5, police responded to a call reporting that there was an altercation between Selena’s parents at her LA home, TMZ reports.

An unidentified caller reported to the police that Selena’s dad shot and killed her mother. The swatter added that her father had a large collection of 20 weapons, and planned to burn down the house.

Sources tell TMZ that the LAPD is having a very difficult time catching the group that has been carrying out these pranks throughout Los Angeles.

Swatting Prank Definition

Urban Dictionary defines swatting as “a goal achieved by hacking where the hacker tricks 911 systems into deploying SWAT to an unsuspecting victim’s home under false pretenses.”

Justin Bieber: Another Swatting Victim

Selena is just one of many celebrities who have recently been the target of a swatting prank, including her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber!

On October 9, police were called to Justin’s home in Los Angeles when a caller claimed a person was waving a gun outside of Justin’s house. LAPD immediately responded, bringing helicopters and police cars. When police arrived, Justin’s security let them search the house, but they didn’t find anything. At the time of the call, Justin was at a concert in Tacoma, Washington for his Believe tour.

Other recent celeb swatting prank victims include Justin TimberlakeRihannaChris BrownKim Kardashian, and Miley Cyrus.

Is it just me, or is she slightly cross-eyed? I keep getting that when I look at her pics. Maybe it’s just the angle.

That’s terrible, but what is wrong with her right eye in that picture above? It looks like it is looking further up than her left eye is, and there is something shiny underneath it. She is a very pretty girl though.

the not so funny thing about this is that a celebrity might die if the lapd is done with the prankster and ignores celeb swat calls somewhen when there’s real trouble. how to cut costs? security observation camera’s at celeb homes don’t work. right?

nonetheless. this hollywood joke is getting awkward. sometimes i think it’s just to get people into caring about celebs more then the products they are. most of all hip overrated celebs are “pranked”. it might be just for stupid blogger news. not that blogs are worth anything these days, but cheap entertainment. which is why it’s ridiulous in a weird way.

whoever is doing this is costing the city some money. because they call 911 and then cops and they use ambulances and then fire department in case of fire thats probably cost like 200,000 thousand dollars or more.
