“Taylor Swift’s spokesperson responded to allegations regarding her father, Scott Swift, purportedly being involved in an altercation with paparazzi during her tour in Australia.

In a statement provided to Entertainment Weekly on Monday, the representative of the 34-year-old global icon stated, ‘Two individuals were aggressively pushing their way towards Taylor, grabbing at her security personnel, and threatening to throw a female staff member into the water.’

The New South Wales Police Force, while not confirming the involvement of the ‘Blank Space’ singer and her father, acknowledged to the outlet that an investigation was ongoing regarding an alleged assault at Sydney’s North Shore in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

‘Police have been informed that a 71-year-old man allegedly assaulted a 51-year-old man at Neutral Bay Wharf around 2:30 a.m. (Tuesday, February 27, 2024), before departing the scene,’ the police force’s statement read.”


“The younger man reported the incident, and inquiries are currently being conducted by officers from the North Shore Police Area Command,” the statement elaborated. “Fortunately, the man did not sustain any injuries requiring medical treatment.”

According to The Daily Mail, a photographer named Ben McDonald lodged the complaint against Swift’s father regarding the purported altercation.

“She [Taylor] disembarked from the boat, approached the security guards who were obstructing us with umbrellas, and then he [Scott Swift] charged,” McDonald recounted to The Daily Mail.

McDonald also purportedly expressed his astonishment, stating, “Initially, I thought it was a security guard, and I was taken aback when I realized that the alleged assailant was the father of the pop star,” as reported by the outlet.

“In my 23 years of photography, I’ve never witnessed anything like it,” McDonald emphasized to The Daily Mail.

Scott Swift has been accompanying the “Love Story” songstress during her “The Eras Tour” performances in Australia. In footage captured from Swift’s international concerts, Taylor’s father can be seen distributing sandwiches and fruit in what appears to be the VIP section at one of the Sydney shows, as highlighted by The Hollywood Reporter.

The songstress kicked off her tour with several concerts in Melbourne before heading to Sydney, where she performed additional shows. One of these shows was attended by her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce.

Kelce, whose relationship with Swift has been a subject of intense media interest since the superstar singer made a notable appearance at one of his games in September, recently shared his perspective. He believes that the public’s fascination with their romance stems from the shared values between the couple, as previously reported.
