Music producer Dr. Luke has reached out to cops after he was allegedly bombarded with vile threats online.

The star, real name Lukasz Gottwald, complained to officers at the Los Angeles Police Department's Threat Management Unit about messages posted to his Twitter.com account.

According to TMZ.com, the tweets included death threats, and began after reports suggested he had criticised his collaborator Ke$ha's weight before the pop star entered rehab for an eating disorder.

Officials at the Threat Management Unit have now filed legal documents asking a judge for a warrant to track down potential suspects.
