According to Page Six, the man might have been stalking the “Cruel Summer” singer as he had been seen in the neighborhood for “a few weeks.”

He had reportedly been “sleeping on the stoop, chain-smoking constantly, shouting, and generally making everyone uncomfortable.”

“When he arrived before Christmas, my husband asked what he was doing here and he said, ‘I want to see Taylor.’ He even had flowers at one point,” an insider told the tabloid.

“I asked him to leave this morning and he just stared at me, catatonic. Total nutcase,” they added.

According to reports, residents had already called police “many times” before the man finally tried to get inside the building.
