Taylor Swift gets restraining order against a stalker

America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift has filed a restraining order against a man who has been stalking her for a number of years.

The obsessed fan has reportedly been harassing the Everything Has Changed singer since 2011.

Timothy Sweet, the stalker identified in court documents obtained by TMZ, has been bombarding Taylor with emails, tweets and letters.

Messages have included: “My wife, Taylor Swift (Sweet) 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 the rest of my life.”

More worrying though, was the following message: “If anyone in Taylor Swift’s family gets killed, it is not my fault.”

Sounds like a very scary veiled threat to us.

Poor Taylor must have been so frightened, but a judge has ordered the man to stay 100 yards away from the singer and three specific family members.
