Singer Taylor Swift gets a restraining order


Taylor Swift has received a restraining order against Timothy Sweet, who claims he’s married to Swift, TMZ reported Tuesday. Swift’s restraining order request says that Sweet, 33, has threatened to murder anyone who tries to keep them apart including, oddly enough, US Secretary of State John Kerry. According to documents in the case, Sweet has harassed Swift since 2011, bombarding her with
e-mails, letters, and social media posts, according to TMZ. Sweet has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Swift, who owns a mansion in Rhode Island, and several members of her family.
