The "Blank Space" singer was apparently hauled from her apartment in New York City's Tribeca section to a waiting truck, while almost a dozen security guards were on hand to oversee the move.
Had she undergone a dramatic makeover she was determined to shield from the paps outside?
Sadly, Splash has since retracted the story, admitting their photographer did not verify whether or not Swift was in the suitcase.
Two Cadillacs and three SUVs were also reportedly outside the apartment. Thankfully for her (but not-so thankfully for fans of weird pop culture moments), we already know that this was all just a misunderstanding and the singer was NOT in the box, but it just goes to show how swiftly a rumor about Swift can spread on the internet. Nearly a dozen of Taylor Swift security guards were present to move this package carefully as Taylor Swift remains to be unseen for a long time.
"I literally just put the phone down from someone on Taylor's camp", A Splash rep told SPIN.
So there we have it, folks. The clip sparked a huge scandal, since Taylor had said that she hadn't been informed about the lyrics before the song's release; she later doubled down on that in a statement posted to Instagram. She was collecting a prize for her "You Belong With Me" music video, but "Ye clearly thought Beyoncé's "You Belong With Me" was a more worthy victor".
It's no secret that Taylor Swift has been in hiding lately.
