Taylor Swift Gets Restraining Order

Superstar and super-sweetheart Taylor Swift is not much on negative talk about fans being crazy or anyone being negative.  However push came to shove and she had to get a restraining order against a NOT so sweet fan.

TMZ reported that Taylor has recently taken precautions to protect herself and members of her family from alleged stalker, Timothy Sweet. It’s been reported that Mr. Sweet has been stalking Taylor since 2011! However, recently court documents were obtained that state the obsessed fan has sent all kinds of correspondence including letters, emails, social media posts….all of them confessing his deep affection for Taylor as well as some fantasy that he and Taylor are married. In true Taylor fashion, she was worried for friends and family members due to the menacing and foreboding tone of the messages.

One of the notes in question says “If anyone in Taylor Swift’s family gets killed it is not my fault.”  In another post he seems to believe that he is married to Ms. Swift. “My wife, Taylor Swift and I live in Beverly Hills. I am in love with her. In conclusion, we treat each other with dignity and respect. I will carry a gun to protect her for the rest of my life.”  Another pretty freaky one was aimed at Secretary of State,  John Kerry: “Dearest Taylor, I’ll kill any man who gets in the way of our marriage. Message to John Kerry, Secretary of State. Message from YOUR Presidential candidate.

Thank goodness and no surprise, a judge granted her the restraining order. In it, the judge orders that Sweet must stay at least 100 yards from Swift and the members of her family.

Such a sad side effect of fame.  CMchat correspondent Dan Van Landingham caught ups with Taylor Swift awhile back and talked to her about fan gifts. This interview shows much she loves her fans so you can imagine how tough this situation has been on her and her family.

We’re thinking about you Taylor and keeping you in our prayers. No one deserves to go through this.
