A man was arrested for allegedly stalking Taylor Swift at her townhouse in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan. Police told the New York Daily News that the suspect, 35-year-old Joshua Christian of Brooklyn, allegedly showed up at Swift’s townhouse on June 12 and threatened to hurt her “if they weren’t together” through the home’s intercom.
Swift, who was not home at the time, has previously been targeted by fans stalking her at her Manhattan townhouse. In August 2021, a Nebraska man was arrested and pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct after he was found in the entrance of her home. Police alleged that Christian previously broke into Swift’s $18 million home through an unlocked front door on March 26. He allegedly stayed in the foyer of the home until he fled when confronted by security.
Christian appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Saturday afternoon and was charged with stalking and criminal trespass. After a court-appointed attorney requested that Christian receive a psychological evaluation, Christian told the court that he wanted to represent himself. He was removed from the courtroom after an outburst in which he allegedly demanded people in the courtroom to prove they were real.
