Taylor Swift has been granted a restraining order against the man who has been accused of threatening harm to her family and claiming that he is married to the singing superstar. USA Today reported on March 25, 2014 that the man has been ordered by the court to stay away from Swift for three years by issuing the restraining order during the court proceedings.
The restraining order against Timothy Sweet was granted by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carol Boas. Swift wrote in a sworn declaration that she fears for her safety in public and at home by stating that "Mr. Sweet's course of conduct, including threats to harm my family, are seriously alarming and harassing and are extremely distressing to me and my family."
The court filing included one of the messages that Swift received from Sweet that said "Dearest Taylor, I'll kill any man who gets in the way of our marriage." The restraining order that Swift was granted also covers her homes, places where Swift works in Los Angeles, California and Nashville, Tennessee and her parents.
Swift filed the petition for a retraining order against Sweet who also allegedly sent multiple messages including “If anyone in Taylor Swift's family gets killed, it is not my fault” and “My wife, Taylor Swift (Sweet) and I live in Beverly Hills. I am in love with her. In conclusion, we treat each other with dignity and respect. I will carry a gun to protect her the rest of my life.”
