Taylor Swift’s attorney has recently sent a cease-and-desist letter to a college student named Jack Sweeney in an attempt to prevent him from monitoring her private jet.
Sweeney, who uses social media to document the movements of aircraft owned by public figures, received a threat of legal action from Swift’s lawyer, Katie Wright Morrone, in December.
The letter warns Sweeney to cease his “stalking and harassing behavior” or face the possibility of legal consequences.
According to the letter, Sweeney’s actions have caused emotional distress and fear for Swift and her family’s safety.
“While this may be a game to you, or an avenue that you hope will earn you wealth or fame, it is a life-or-death matter for our Client,” Morrone continued. “(There is) no legitimate interest in or public need for this information, other than to stalk, harass, and exert dominion and control.”
Morrone also highlighted the fact the 34-year-old regularly has issues with stalkers showing up at her properties.
Addressing the letter, Taylor Swift’s publicist Tree Paine told the publication, “We cannot comment on any ongoing police investigation but can confirm the timing of stalkers suggests a connection. His posts tell you exactly when and where she would be.”
Sweeney told the outlet the letter was an attempt to scare him away from sharing data that is already publicly available from the Federal Aviation Administration.
Taylor Swift has experienced many issues with stalkers over the years. In January, David Crowe was arrested near her New York City home three times in the space of five days.
