Taylor granted a three-year restraining order by a judge on Tuesday, according to LA Times. Swift had the order taken out against Timothy Sweet, 33, a man who has allegedly been threatening her and her family as well. Sweet will have to stay 100 yards away from Swift,
Her parents and their home, and her homes and places where she works in both the Los Angeles and Nashville areas. Sweet is convinced that he is married to Grammy-winning singer Swift and has allegedly sent her threatening messages.
In these messages Sweet would threaten to ‘kill any man who gets in the way’ of his supposed relationship with Swift, according to court documents that were obtained by the Associated Press.
UPDATE: Taylor and Lena Dunham spent Thursday night at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg watching a performance by Bleachers, the side project of Jack Antonoff (Fun.) Lena described Taylor as: ‘a good friend of mine.
I call and text her all the time. She helps me be strong and make better decisions. She has amazing creative instincts.’ Taylor and Douglas Booth, who left the show together, were romantically linked in late 2013 but have insisted they are just friends.
Swift, 24, has said in a sworn written declaration which was filed on March 3 that she was concerned for her own safety in public and at home. Considering court documents also said that Sweets had visited not only Swift’s home in Beverly Hills, but also in Nashville, her concern is understandable.
Sweet’s harassment of Swift is not a new occurrence; it has been occurring since January 2011. Over the last three years, he has sent Swift emails, letters, and messages on social media declaring his love for her.
Also ordered to stay away from Swift is Daniel Cole, 38, of Brewster, Massachusetts. Taylor Swift’s restraining order against Cole says that the man has to stay away from her Rhode Island vacation home.
