A man was arrested last week for allegedly following Taylor Swift to a Texas airport despite an existing restraining order.
Frank Andrew Hoover, 38, was arrested on Thursday as part of an investigation into claims that he followed the singer from her Formula 1 show in Austin on October 22. It had been alleged that Hoover followed Swift’s motorcade to the airport where her private jet was situated and was waiting for her on her arrival.
TMZ reports that Swift’s bodyguards told police that Hoover got within 25-50 feet of the singer’s car and, when asked his intentions, said that he wanted to “possibly accompany Taylor wherever she goes”. Swift had already been granted a protective order requiring Hoover to stay 500 feet away from her at all times.
It had also been alleged that Hoover sent several troubling emails to Swift’s father, Scott Swift, leading up to and after the incident. Messages allegedly included Hoover saying: “Without her, I walk the earth alone forever and she’ll continue to experience failed relationships that break her heart” and “God is going to kill all the Swifts and then the issue will go away.” Hoover also allegedly included a photo of the singer with a caption that read, “A whore named Satan dies,” in red.
Hoover is currently being held on a $100,000 bail.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift and Drake are rumoured to be working on new music together. According to E! News, a source has said that “the music [Swift and Drake] have been working on together is different,” though “catchy.” Neither Swift nor Drake has responded to rumours of a collaboration.
