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 father had killed her mother with a gun before threatening to burn the house down, but the 20-year-old and her mother Mandy Teefey were unaware of the fake crime and "had no idea" why cops arrived at their door.
