Police are investigating two death threats made to 13 year-old internet sensation Rebecca Black.

According to Reuters, police in Anaheim, California are investigating two death threats that were made sometime during March, after the singer’s track 'Friday' became a massive hit on YouTube.

Rick Martinez, Anaheim Police spokesman said: "In essence the threats were related to getting the music off the internet or they were going to kill her. We can't validate how serious they are, but we do take it seriously."

He added: "We're going to investigate and determine the source of the comments and then based on the investigation determine what intent was and where we go from here. If we believe they were actually intended as threats we will work toward prosecution."

Martinez added that one of the threats was made by phone, the other via email.

'Friday' has now been viewed more than 200 million times on YouTube.
