WARNING: The following content is graphic in nature.
We’re not talking about a graphic photo or graphic video or any sort of image that may haunt your dreams.
We’re talking about the mere summation of what one man says he wants to do to Taylor Swift.
It’s truly horrifying.
According to TMZ, Swift has been dealing with a stalker for the past two years or so.
His name is Eric Swarbick. He is 26 years old. And he’s been sending letters to the musical superstar since September of 2016.
According to legal documented filed by Swift’s legal team, the message have become increasingly alarming over the past few months.
They have caused the artist immense levels of stress, fear, concern and anxiety.
Taylor is worried that Swarbrick will make good on his threats — and it’s very easy to understand why, once you read the content of these letters.
We’ve published excerpts below and, once again, want to warn readers that this is disgusting stuff.
I want to rape Taylor Swift. This is why I hate Taylor herself … This is how I know I am Taylor’s soulmate, reads one passage.
I have learned to absolutely repress the metaphorical monster in me, but, very soon, I will become completely responsible for myself …
What logical conclusion is there other than death, reads another.
I will not hesitate to kill her … and there’s nothing you, your lawyers, or the law will be about to do about it. Remember who I am, reads another.
We truly can’t imagine what it must have been like for Swift to receive these letters, can you?
In response to the barrage of ugliness, a judge ordered Swarbrick this week to stop contacting Swift immediately,; he’s not allowed to go near her or her property, either.
No matter what anyone thinks of Taylor Swift, you must be a truly evil individual to think she deserves anything such as this.
Moreover, it’s not the first time the singer has had to deal with a crazed fan.
Swift recently won a five-year restraining order against a man who was arrested for trying to enter her home in Los Angeles, armed with a knife.
In April, Julius Sandrock was arrested and charged with felony stalking after he was spotted at the singer’s estate… wearing a mask and rubber gloves while carrying a rope, knife and live ammunition.
Swift was granted a five-year long restraining order against him.
Taylor was not at home at the time (thank goodness), but the incident left her in “extreme distress” and made her fear for her “personal safety,” according to court papers.
ALSO earlier this year, a 23-year-old named Justin Christoph Lilly was arrested for attempting to scale a wall outside Swift’s residence.
He was sentenced to three days in jail and a year of summary probation, on the condition that he stays away from Swift’s home.
If this is the price of global fan, one has to wonder if it’s even worth it.
Hang in there, Taylor.

Two years after Christina Grimmie was murdered by a fan, her mother, Tina Grimmie has lost her battle with breast cancer.
“We are saddened to announce the loss of our beloved Tina, also affectionately known as ‘Mama Grimmie’ to the millions of fans of Christina Grimmie around the world. She will be missed immensely,” the Grimmie family said in a statement via social media on Sunday.
“Tina fought a courageous and brave battle with cancer for many years, even until her final hours with family by her side,” the statement continued.
“While this is a bittersweet moment for us as a family, particularly after losing Christina two years ago, we rejoice at the thought that Tina and Christina are united once again in the presence of our Lord and Savior.”
In June 2016, Christina was shot by Kevin James Loibl after performing as the opening act for Before You Exit at The Plaza Live in Orlando.
The singer was signing autographs for fans when the gunman opened fire.
Christina was hospitalized following the shooting but died from the gunshot wounds. Her killer turned the gun on himself shortly after Christina’s brother Marcus tackled him.
Loibl died at the scene as a result of his injuries.
“Tina Grimmie was a powerful and shining example of motherhood, being an amazing wife while giving love and encouragement to others. Her laugh, energy, passion and joyful spirit will eternally be a part of all of us,” the statement added.
“Tina was truly a one of a kind soul and our hearts are heavy. We respectfully ask for some private time to process her passing. In lieu of flowers, we invite you to make donations to the Christina Grimmie Foundation in Tina’s honor,” the statement continued.
Prior to her passing, Christina had been open about her mother’s health woes, admitting that she had survived breast cancer four times.
“My mom has had breast cancer four times, now. And she just got put back on chemo again,” she told AXS in October 2014.
Christina shot to fame in 2009 when she began uploading videos of her singing to her Youtube channel. The account racked up over 375 million views by 2013, further solidifying the fact that she was a talented young woman.
She went on to appear on NBC’s The Voice in 2014, and immediately struck a chord with viewers thanks to her vocal range and bubbly personality.
She ultimately finished in third place, behind winner Josh Kaufman and runner-up Jake Worthington.
Since Christina’s death, her family has kept in touch with fans by releasing previously recorded music, and by launching a foundation in the star’s name.
The foundation was started with the aim of supporting families who lost a loved one to gun violence and families with relatives diagnosed with breast cancer.
We extend our thoughts and prayers to the Grimmie family at this difficult time.
