Taylor Swift's father attacks paparazzi for taking photos of daughter


Taylor Swift has come to her father's defense after reports of Scott Swift's assault on a paparazzi photographer.

Taylor Swift's father Scott allegedly assaulted a photographer on Sydney's North Shore on Tuesday, February 27. The incident happened hours after Swift's performance in the Australian city. Taylor Swift's team has remained tight-lipped regarding these reports.

Swift's spokesperson says the Papa Razi photographer was 'aggressive' towards the star and her entourage.

According to The Mirror newspaper, his spokesman said two men were aggressively moving towards the Taylors and grabbing their security personnel while also threatening to throw a female member of staff overboard.

North Shore Police confirmed the incident in a statement. However, the police refrained from revealing the names of those involved.

A 71-year-old man allegedly assaulted a 51-year-old man at Neutral Bay Wharf around 2:30 a.m. local time, police said, which is being investigated.

The man who was attacked reported the incident and it is now being investigated by officers attached to the North Shore Police Area Command.

Australia's Sky News reported that Scott was one of the people involved in the fight. The photographer, identified as Matrix Media Group chief executive Ben MacDonald, is said to have been taking pictures of Taylor Swift.
