Taylor Swift Had To Get A Restraining Order On A Guy Who Thinks He’s Her Husband

Taylor Swift attending Vanity Fair Oscar party March 2014For as much as we good-naturedly tease celebrities, there are some things that deserve our full, serious attention. That list includes mental illness, body-shaming, struggles with addiction, and stalking, among others.

Those are all topics it’s totally not okay to use against someone, which is why even though we usually poke fun at Taylor Swift, we’re all business today. Why? Because she’s being stalked, and that’s terrifying. There’s a man out there who seems to genuinely believe that he and Taylor are not just dating, but actually married, and the comments he’s made to her have her seriously worried. His name is Timothy Sweet, and he’s a thirty-three year old man who, at six feet tall and 200 pounds, cuts quite an imposing figure.

Apparently he’s been contacting her through letters, phone messages, and social media, repeatedly harassing her with claims that he’s her husband, to the point that she’s taken out a temporary restraining order against him that prohibits him from contacting her via any electronic means, including online. It will last until March 25th, when there will be a court hearing to decide whether to extend the order.

The request, filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court, states that the accused’s contact is:

 ”seriously alarming and harassing and are extremely distressing to me and my family” and said that she does “not have desire to interact with or communicate in any way with Mr Sweet.”

This is serious stuff, guys, and we’re glad that Taylor is taking the necessary steps to protect herself from a fan who has taken things too far. Just a reminder to always be aware of stuff like this, because the sooner you report it, the less likely it is that the situation will escalate.

      Bravo, Alexis. I’m a Taylor fan, and I don’t mind the teasing and ribbing that Taylor usually gets on here. You and your fellow writers here are usually very funny and clever and I can recognize that it’s all in good fun. But this stalker-business is serious stuff. So thank you for treating this like the serious issue it is. Well done.

      I’m ashamed to admit I’m a Taylor fan, but she’s one of the few artists that you can let your 7 year old listen to, so she’s grown on me.
      Today I caught an episode of Stalked on ID, and this is some serious shit, this man needs to be incarcerated

      She has 80 security people at last count. Some go everywhere with her and the others watch her three homes, aircraft hanger for her private jet in Nashville, and her family as well. Up to 1500 people are employed by Taylor at any one time counting band, tour staff, drivers, pilots, creative artists et. all. She’s an industry.

      I’m just so glad that crushable takes a serious stand on this case….

      This guy could harm anyone , you or me….not just Taylor Swift.
