Selena Gomez - Selena Gomez At Home During Swatting Scare

Actress/singer Selena Gomez and her mother were left stunned when police swarmed their Los Angeles home on Friday (05Apr13) in response to an apparent prank call.

The Spring Breakers star became the latest victim of a 'swatting' hoax, in which callers phone 911 dispatchers to elicit an urgent response from authorities.

According to Tmz.com, Gomez's 'swatter' told emergency services the star's dad had killed her mum with a gun before threatening to burn the house down, but the 20 year old and her mum Mandy Teefey were unaware of the fake crime and "had no idea" why cops arrived at their door.

The scare came just two hours after officers rushed to Justin Timberlake's home to investigate a 911 call.

Gomez's ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, as well as Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood and Ashton Kutcher are among the stars who have fallen victim to 'swatting' in recent months.
