Salma Hayek’s kidnap terror

Salma Hayek is terrified two fans might attempt to kidnap her daughter.

The 48-year-old actress is mother to seven-year-old Valentina with husband François-Henri Pinault.

On Friday TMZ reported that Salma has obtained a restraining order against two women she alleges are mentally disturbed.

According to the outlet, Salma claims the fans have been impersonating her while out and about, and have made it their mission to get close to her.

She also apparently revealed that on one occasion, one of the women pretended she was the actress before making "a veiled threat regarding kidnapping and ransoming".

Salma reportedly received an email from the woman, which read: “I know where her daughter will be. How much is her life worth?"

The email caused the woman to break character, as she referred to Salma as “her”.

The restraining order has been granted, meaning the women are forbidden from getting within 100 yards of Salma, Valentina or François-Henri.

Salma is due to attend court next month in a bid to make the restraining order permanent.

The Mexican actress has always had a close relationship with her daughter.

In an interview with Rachael Ray, Salma admitted she works hard to forge a bond with her little girl and frequently enjoys mother-daughter date nights with Valentina.

“I took her on a date; because we have our dates that it’s just her and I, we have to have them,” she explained. “And, they’re always at night, you know, we go to the movies or to dinner just her and I.”
