A thirty-year-old man was arrested Wednesday morning (local time) at Taylor Swift's house when he tried to force the entrance gate to the singer's home in the US state of Rhode Island. The man claimed to have spoken to the singer-songwriter by telephone and to marry her, TMZ reports.
Swift was not at home at the time of the burglary attempt. The fan had no weapons in his pocket and was taken to the hospital for psychiatric examinations by police officers.
The man had also been spotted at the singer's house before, two weeks earlier he was already in the area.
The singer, who was still in the charts this year with You Need to Calm Down, has received more attention from fans who explicitly sought contact with her. For example, a 32-year-old man was arrested last month in a park near the same house. The arrestee had a baseball bat and tools to force locks with him and reportedly said he "wanted to talk to Taylor Swift again."
Previous stalker Swift was sentenced to prison
In September 2018, a 26-year-old stalker was banned from contacting him after sending Swift letters threatening to rap and kill the artist. In April of that year, a stalker who broke into Swift's house in New York City twice received another four-year prison sentence.
