Taylor Swift, much like other celebrities, has her very own stalker. Unlike other stalkers though, Timothy Sweet has repeatedly threatened anyone who dares to get in between himself and Swift, who he claims is his wife.
In an earlier report by The Inquisitr, Taylor Swift reportedly filed for a restraining order against Sweet, who has stalked the singer since 2011. Over the past few years the singer has reportedly received dozens of emails, letters, social media and phone messages from Sweet, many of which stating just how much he loves her.
According to E! News, Swift did receive a temporary restraining order against the 33-year-year which orders Sweet to refrain from making any contact with the singer until March 25, at which time a court hearing will take place to decide whether or not to extend the restraining order.
TMZ stated that Sweet has repeatedly threatened the safety of not only Swift and her family, but also anyone who dares to get between him and the singer. One message from Swifts stalker read “If anyone in Taylor Swift’s family gets killed, it is not my fault.”
Another message reads “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.” One of the more threatening messages stated:
“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.”
The Inquisitr stated that Swift was motivated to get the restraining order against Sweet because she was constantly feeling threatened and harassed by the man. “Swift said to reporters that Sweet’s behavior and constant stalking of her was ‘seriously alarming and harassing’ and that the constant flow of messages and phone calls were ‘extremely distressing to me and my family.'”
According to E! News, Taylor Swift has said that she does “not have the desire to interact with or communicate in any way with Mr Sweet.” The restraining order states that Timothy Sweet may not come within 100 yards of Swift, her mother, father or her brother. “Sweet is prohibited from contacting Swift through any electronic means, including social media websites.”
Dealing with a stalker is a scary situation for anyone, but having to deal with one that’s making death threats is especially dangerous. Do you think this temporary restraining order will keep Taylor Swift’s stalker at bay?
