Taylor Swift is being accused of making diva demands, and this time, it sounds like she could be taking a cue from Justin Bieber.
According to a new report by Life & Style, Swift made some pretty big demands while dining at a restaurant recently, where she allegedly demanded that her fellow diners did not take any photos while in her presence.
An onlooker alleged to the site that Swift was at a restaurant with a friend in Beverly Hills when the supposed diva incident went down and reportedly made it known that “she had a strict no-photos policy for everyone in the restaurant.”
The site reported that Taylor didn’t just demand her fellow diners didn’t take photos of her but supposedly requested that no photos whatsoever were taken in the restaurant while she was inside, “even if the singer wasn’t nearby.”
According to the onlooker, Swift allegedly had her bodyguard keep an eye out while Taylor and her friend ate just to make sure no one attempted to snap a photo of her and supposedly “immediately shut down” anyone who attempted to take a snap of Swift.
Taylor has yet to confirm or deny the reports, but this isn’t the first time this week that it’s been reported that a huge pop star has “shut down” fans hoping to get a picture with them.
Earlier this week, Justin Bieber announced that he would no longer be taking photos with fans in a lengthy Instagram post, stating that fans constantly approaching him for a photo was beginning to make him feel inhuman.
“It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human,” Bieber wrote on his official Instagram page. “I want to be able to keep my sanity. I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture.”
But while Swift has made no such public claim to stop taking photos and always usually seems to be happy to go the extra mile for her legions fans, this isn’t the first time Taylor has been accused of making “diva demands.”
Australia’s News.com.au claimed back in 2014 that Swift was being sued by a limousine company after she supposedly refused to pay a transport bill and “acted like a diva.”
The site revealed that Taylor found herself in a legal battle with APG Security back in June 2014, which was hired to drive Swift around New York.
However, shortly into their contract, the company claimed that they were given a “list of issues” from Swift’s management that they were told to rectify, including instructions on when drivers were allowed to speak to Taylor.
But not only did Swift’s team allegedly detail “under what circumstances they could speak to her,” the company also claimed to the site that Taylor ordered more cars to drive herself and her entourage around New York before promptly cancelling her contract and allegedly refusing to pay the bill.
One year prior to Taylor’s supposed limo demands, Us Weekly also accused Swift of having a diva moment while attending the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards.
The site alleged that Swift was less than thrilled about appearing on the same bill as her ex-boyfriend John Mayer at the country awards show and claimed that Taylor reportedly kicked up “a stink” when it came to Mayer’s performance.
“She said she had to go on earlier than him,” a source close to the award show claimed, alleging that Taylor “was just really bitter that night.”
