A US man has been arrested after allegedly threatening to kill Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr.
Steven C Swanson from East Sandwich, Massachusetts, was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged after he called the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to tell them he was planning to travel to California to shoot and kill the 30-year-old model, reports local publication the Cape Cod Times.
According to CapeCodOnline.com, police records show Swanson, 52, threatened to turn Kerr's LA home ''upside down''.
He also reportedly referred to the model as his ''soul mate''.
A search of Swanson's house reportedly found photographs of Kerr on his refrigerator, microwave and bookshelf, however no weapons were found.
Swanson pleaded not guilty to a charge of making a threat concerning a firearm at the Barnstable District Court on Wednesday.
Judge Robert Welsh III ordered Swanson be committed for psychiatric evaluation.
Bail was set at $US8000 ($A8725).
Swanson is due back in court on July 19.
Kerr shares a home in Los Angeles with her husband, actor Orlando Bloom, and their two-year-old son, Flynn.
In April, Kerr said the whole family was moving to New York where Bloom will star in the new Broadway theatre production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
