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.

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.
