Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift: 'Stalker Problem Is Worse Than Ever'

Singer Taylor Swift is so terrified of falling victim to a stalker that her security team sends her photos of crazed fans to watch out for.

The Love Story hitmaker has enlisted a team of bodyguards to keep her safe after a string of terrifying threats were made against her.

She tells Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I get nervous when I have stalker incidents. I try not to talk too much about it because it scares me. Sometimes you get a dude who kind of wants to steal you. That's why I'm so grateful I have people looking after me, like (my bodyguard) Dennis.

"Over the past couple of years it's got worse. I get told if there's been an attempt or a threat. My security text me a picture and say, 'Look out for this dude; he's driven across the country, he's off his meds (medication),' or something like that. No one has ever been successful in getting into my house or anything like that. I have an amazing security team."

The 22-year-old star admits she has "a lot" of pursuers, but she refuses to live in fear of being followed.

She adds, "There are a lot of them (stalkers). I just try to be safe and be conscious of people around me... It's something you just have to deal with. It's the price you pay for getting to do what you love. You can let it take over your life and make you fearful all the time, or you can live your life in spite of it."
