Obsessed fan dragged away from Taylor Swift's home

AN obsessed fan was taken away from Taylor Swift's home by police on Wednesday (06.07.16).

The unnamed man arrived at the 26-year-old singer's Rhode Island mansion and claimed that he was scheduled to meet Taylor so that they could get married.

TMZ reports he started crying because Taylor is now dating Tom Hiddleston and the man was "transported to a hospital for mental evaluation".

His car was later towed from the scene.

Although Taylor hosted a star-studded Fourth of July bash at her home, it is unclear if she was present when the man arrived.

She and Tom, 35, were spotted at LAX on Wednesday on their way to Australia's Gold Coast where he will be filming 'Thor: Ragnarok'.

This isn't the first time the singer has had problems with unwanted visitors; in May an "emotionally disturbed" man was detained at her apartment in New York City.

The 'Shake It Off' singer wasn't at home when the unnamed person showed up on the doorstep of her Tribeca apartment but her security staff found the would-be intruder and called police.

NYPD and NYFD officers described the man as "disoriented" as he was handcuffed, while video posted on TMZ showed he had a duffel bag, and police searched his belongings.

Sources told the website the guy was "emotionally disturbed" and he was taken to hospital for evaluation.

In February, police were called after an unnamed man was heard "yelling" for her to come out of her Bel Air estate, prompting neighbors to call 911 for assistance.

He was taken away for medical observation and later released without charge.

And two weeks before that, a man was apprehended at another of her homes and, after being questioned by police, was also sent for medical evaluation.

The 'Bad Blood' hitmaker had been forced to secure restraining orders against a number of stalkers in the past.

Timothy Sweet was ordered to stay away from her and her parents, Andrea and Scott, for three years in March 2014 after he sent her dozens of emails, letters and social media posts declaring his love for her.

He also allegedly threatened to "kill any man," including US Secretary of State John Kerry, who came between him and Taylor, as he believed he and the singer were married.

And Christian Ewing was arrested and charged after being taken down by four of the 'Blank Space' singer's bodyguards when he snuck into her concert at Petco Park in San Diego, California last year and jumped up on stage alongside the star.

Although he was eventually dragged away, one member of Taylor's team is believed to have suffered a broken rib during the incident.

District Attorney Jessica Coto said in court that when asked why he went on stage, he said, "I love that girl".
