Out of all the pop icons in the world, Taylor Swfit, by far, has the craziest fans (and haters). After a whirlwind year of dealing with both a stalker and a sexual assault case, the 28-year-old songstress is now forced to cope with yet another debacle, except this time, it’s with an “admirer.” Unfortunately, this particular gentleman took his love for Taylor a little too far.
So much so, that the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer has become indirectly responsible for a bank robbery! As per police reports obtained by TMZ, “Bruce Rowley was arrested last week in Ansonia, CT after cops say he confessed to robbing a bank and then driving to Taylor’s house and throwing some of the money that he stole over her fence, thinking that would win her over.”
The cops reported that Bruce Rowley was spotted by state troopers in Rhode Island, where he eventually led them on a chase all the way back to Connecticut — the musician has a home there. Law enforcement has yet to verify if Rowley actually went to Taylor’s house, but it’s clear that was his full intention.
Bruce explained to police officers (repeatedly) that he had a crush on Taylor and that he planned on donating the stolen money to Ansonia PD — hoping that would impress the singer. The megafan was eventually booked for robbery in the second degree and larceny in the fourth degree.
This incident shortly follows the sentencing of Frank Andrew Hoover — a prime example of one of Taylor’s aforementioned haters. Back in 2016, Hoover threatened to murder Taylor’s entire family, citing that they were an “evil family of devils” who should “enjoy the brain aneurysms and death.” On April 3, he was given 10-years probation.
In addition, TMZ reported that he must stay a mile away from the Swift family at all times, as well as constantly having his location monitored via GPS for at least a year. He will also have to undergo psychological and drug testing, attend substance abuse classes, and forego all firearms that may be in his possession. Should Hoover decide to break any rules of his probation, it will lead to immediate jail time.
If Taylor thought 2018 would be a breath of fresh air, sadly her luck isn’t looking up. As someone who is clearly no stranger to this sort of obsessive and dangerous behavior, we can only hope that she remains safe and unscathed.
