Well, this is awkward — and creepy! One of Taylor Swift’s super fans was arrested for flashing his penis before proposing marriage to the ‘Blank Space’ singer, a new report claims. Get all the details here!
Taylor Swift may be dating Tom Hiddleston, but that didn’t stop another man from proposing marriage to her. Joseph Bernatche, who is a huge fan of the “Blank Space” singer, reportedly showed up at her Rhode Island home, professing his love for her.
And just one day before he did that, Joseph was arrested for exposing his penis on the road, according to TMZ. On Tuesday morning, July 5, he allegedly ran into the middle of the road and flashed his penis to a passing driver. Joseph allegedly did it as a way to “expose the difference between sex and love.” (Whatever that means.)
Joseph was booked on indecent conduct and released the next morning, and that’s when he headed to Taylor’s Rhode Island home to propose marriage to her. When police arrived, he was crying, and he told officers Taylor was supposed to marry him, but now she’s with Tom.
He has since been taken to a local hospital for mental evaluation, TMZ notes.
It’s unclear if Taylor was home at the time of the incident. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, she flew to Australia with Tom Hiddleston late Wednesday night. He’s currently filming Thor: Ragnarok there, and Taylor decided to tag along. She may even stay there for a few months.
We’ve learned T-Swizzle has made herself completely at home with Tom in Australia — she even plans on writing and recording new music for her follow-up to 1989 while down under! Thankfully, she’ll be very far away from Joseph.
