It’s natural for all of us to have somewhat stalkerish tendencies when it comes to our favourite celebrities. We obsessively watch what they do, where they go and who they hang out with. Sometimes we follow their shoot/recording schedules in an attempt to run into them. However, if you’ve climbed into their home without their consent, then you should know that you’ve gone too far.
Such is the case with one fan, or stalker, who apparently had been following Taylor Swift for months before finally breaking into her home.
According to Page Six, Mohammed Jaffar, 29, began his stalking in December 2016, when he arrived at Swift’s Franklin Street address and requested a sit-down with her before being ordered to get lost, the documents state. Jaffar later showed up to her building four more times over the next two months, the most recent visit on February 15, according to a criminal complaint against him.
Daily Mail said that Jaffar managed to sneak his way into the corridor outside of Taylor’s unit, and also onto the roof of the building in the middle of the night. He also resorted to ringing the singer’s buzzer for an hour straight, before coming back the next day to do it again for another 45 minutes.
The stalker has now been arrested on stalking and burglary charges and is being held on a $20,000 bond. He is also barred from making any contact with the pop star.
