Taylor Swift Takes Out Restraining Order On Stalker
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Taylor Swift has millions of fans around the world and many of them claim that they love her. Her stalker, Timothy Sweet however, is so obsessed with Swift that he has threatened to kill anyone who gets between them. Sweet began stalking Swift in 2011 and has made numerous threats about her.
He also claims that Swift in his wife and that the couple live together. He sends his threats and ramblings in notes and letters to Swift.
“My wife, Taylor Swift (Sweet) and I live in Beverly Hills,” he allegedly wrote in one message. “I am in love with her. In conclusion, we treat each other with dignity and respect. I will carry a gun to protect her the rest of my life.”
Another message said, “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,”
After reading several of these strange and alarming letters and notes, Swift decided she needed to take out a restraining order against Sweet in order to protect herself and her family.
She recently filed the temporary restraining order at Los Angeles Superior Court. It will expire on March 25, but states that Mr. Sweet should stay at least 100 yards away from Taylor, her mother Andrea, father Scott, and younger brother, Austin.
Swift told the courts, “(His conduct) is seriously alarming and harassing and (is) extremely distressing to me and my family.” She went on to say that she did not have any desire to see or communicate with Sweet.
Swift has had other fans who have crossed the line before, including a Wisconsin man who claimed that he was Swift’s boyfriend and tried to scale the fence to her home. When he was arrested, he said that he had planned to surprise her.
