Taylor Swift’s longtime stalker Mohammad Jaffar has been committed to a state psychiatric facility after being declared unfit to stand trial by the court doctor for the Manhattan Supreme Court. He is to remain there until further mental health examinations have been taken.
Jaffar is accused of stalking the pop star since December, although he has been tweeting her since 2014, after reportedly sending out unnerving messages about her, calling her management 60 times over 14 days and ringing her doorbell.
The man also tweeted images of sweets that he planned on giving her, captioning them “Something a gatekeeper (a guy dressed up as security guard in your lobby) prevented us from sharing.” Jaffar also wrote Swift poetry.
However, this isn’t the only legal battle that Taylor Swift has been involved in after she recently countersued DJ David Mueller for $1 after he first sued her for $3 million, due to losing his job after she claimed that he groped her at a meet and greet.
Mueller, who worked for KYGO-FM sued Swift in September after claiming he was falsely accused of lifting Taylors skirt and touching her bottom.
After a week of deliberations, Swift won the trial with the jury unanimously finding Mueller guilty of assault and battery, leaving Swift to take the $1 she requested. Swift released this statement after the trial.
“I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process.”
“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this,” she continued. “My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.”
Taylor Swifts new album “Reputation” is due to be released worldwide on the 10th November.
