Miley Cyrus

Selena Gomez seems to be the least of Miley Cyrus' problems right now.

E! News has confirmed that a judge has granted the pop singer a three-year restraining order against an Arizona man who is believed to be a threat to her safety.

The 21-year-old filed for a temporary restraining order against 24-year-old Devon Meek in late May because he "delusionally believes that Cyrus communicates with him via her songs." According to court documents obtained by E! News, Meek "hears screaming voices in his head and thinks Miley is talking to him through the radio."

The request goes on to state that "Meek, who we are informed and believe suffers from delusions about Ms. Cyrus, believes that the singer/actress/celebrity Ms. Cyrus communicates with him through her songs and is telling him to come to see her so that they may be together."

Meek was arrested by the LAPD on May 16 and placed on a psychiatric hold, where he remains, but has stated that he "will not stop seeking out Ms. Cyrus" even after his release.

According to Detective Rosibel Smith wrote in a sworn statement that Meek told officers during an interview they should shoot him in the head if he couldn't meet the singer.

Smith said that an officer "informed me that Mr. Meek stated that when he is released from the hospital, he will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus and that he will continue to go to Ms. Cyrus' residence until Ms. Cyrus accepts him or he dies."

Miley has not yet been approached by him but she is in fear of her safety because of Meek's mental state and apparent obsession, according to the request. He was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Cyrus, her home, her car, as well as her job or workplace.

Cyrus is currently in Spain on the European leg of her Bangerz tour.
