Taylor Swift has been granted a restraining order against a man who has allegedly been stalking the singer since 2011.

The “Love Story” hitmaker won the order after claiming super fan Timothy Sweet had repeatedly sent her frightening emails, letters and social media posts in the last three years, and she now fears for her safety.

In legal documents obtained by editors at TMZ.com, Swift alleges Sweet claimed she was his wife, and threatened to kill her family members.

Some of the alarming messages read: “Dearest Taylor, I’ll kill any man who gets in the way of our marriage. Message to John Kerry, (U.S.) Secretary of State”, and “If anyone in Taylor Swift’s family gets killed, it is not my fault.”

He also vowed to carry a gun at all times to protect the singer.

A judge ruled that Sweet must stay at least 100 yards away from Swift and the three members of her immediate family.
