The Truth Behind the Alleged Assault by Taylor Swift's Father

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s father, Scott Swift, 71, was recently accused of assaulting a photographer while in Sydney, Australia with his superstar daughter. As the allegations spread, Taylor fled Sydney on her private jet amidst the controversy.

Photographer’s Account of the Incident

According to 51-year-old photographer Greg McDonald, he was trying to take pictures of Taylor Swift during her Eras Tour visit when the alleged assault occurred. McDonald claimed a man “started shoving his umbrella into me and my camera” and then “someone else came running at me and punched me in the left of my face.”

McDonald explicitly stated “it was her father” who punched him. The photographer says he was simply doing his job when Swift’s team aggressively came at him.

Taylor Swift’s Team Denies Claims

After Taylor departed Sydney, her team came forward to deny the allegations against Scott Swift. A representative stated that “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.

So while McDonald alleged he was assaulted trying to photograph Taylor, her team claims McDonald himself was aggressively going after Taylor, prompting security to get involved.

Police Investigation Underway

According to Daily Mail, Sydney police have launched an investigation into the alleged assault incident involving Taylor’s father. It seems authorities will need to interview witnesses and review evidence to determine if Scott Swift did indeed punch photographer Greg McDonald at his daughter’s event.

For now, Taylor Swift is distancing herself from the controversy by leaving Australia shortly after the allegations came to light. But the police probe means she and her family may still have to answer questions.

Final Thoughts

In the end, investigators will need to uncover the full truth behind what transpired between Scott Swift and photographer Greg McDonald in Sydney. If Taylor’s father is found guilty of assault, it would no doubt prove highly embarrassing and damaging for the Swift family. For Taylor’s sake, hopefully, her father’s name is cleared.
