Well this is an… interesting… development.
Mohammed Jaffar, the 29-year-old obsessed fan who is accused of stalking Taylor Swift, has alleged in interviews with detectives that he works for Katy Perry — a pretty ridiculous claim, but eyebrow-raising nonetheless.
Court documents are coming out now from one of Jaffar’s arrests, and it turns out that back on March 6, while being interviewed by detectives in the case relating to Swift, Jaffar spilled the beans on how he supposedly is doing this at the direction of Perry.
Jaffar said to the detectives, in part (below):
“I’m in the music world and get people started. I do work for Katy Perry. I helped her get started.”
He went on to keep claiming that he works specifically for Katy Perry, and that he has “ties to the industry.”
Jaffar is accused of sneaking onto the roof of Swift’s $20 million penthouse in New York, and he allegedly called her management company at least 59 times, leaving her “messages about business deals.”
Sounds more like a delusional, scarily-obsessed fan, and less like a man with “ties to the industry.”
