Taylor Swift has officially applied for and obtained a restraining order against Timothy Sweet, the man who has stalked her since 2011 and claims to be her husband.
“My wife Taylor Swift (Sweet) and I live in Beverley Hills [sic],” Sweet wrote. “I am in love with her.”
In other messages, Sweet has threatened to kill anyone who stands between him and his “wife,” including Secretary of State John Kerry.
Swift told reporters that Sweet’s constant stalking is “seriously alarming” and that the constant flow of messages and phone calls is distressing for her family. Swift has stated that she has no interest in interacting or communicating with Sweet.
The temporary restraining order was ordered by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge and requires that Sweet stay at least 100 feet away from Swift, her mother, father and younger brother.
The restraining order will expire on March 25. It is unclear whether the Los Angeles Superior Court will extend the order after its expiration.
A son and husband teamed up Sunday morning to leave a heartwarming snow message on the roof of a Chicago hospital parking garage.
“HI MOM GOD BLESS U!” the message, written in snow, reads from a room at Rush University Medical Center.
Tim Hart and his 14-year-old son Will wrote the message for Hart’s wife, who is fighting leukemia.
After finishing the message, Will called his mother and asked her to look out the window. With the help of a nurse, Sharon Hart got out of bed and saw the message outside.
“It was uplifting and it was a proud mom moment to think that my 14-year-old son would do this,” Sharon Hart said.
The message could be seen from 70 hospital rooms across four floors, encouraging both medical staff and patients.
Angela Washek, a nurse at the medical center, said that it was nice to see the good side of health care.
A husband and wife on the way home from their wedding got into a tragic accident that claimed the life of the brand new bride.
Kali Dobson, 25, was sitting in the passenger seat while her new husband Ryan Quinton, 27, drove home from their wedding. At one point, a dog ran into the middle of the road, and when Quinton swerved so he wouldn’t hit it, he lost control of the vehicle.
Dobson, who was not wearing a seatbelt during the drive, was ejected from the car as it plunged into an embankment. The car eventually landed on top of her.
Quinton was seen by a passing driver stumbling alongside the road searching for help. The driver went with Quinton to try and help Dobson, but when he saw the car on top of her, he knew it was too late.
“His shirt was all torn up and he was bleeding,” said the witness Chris Thomas to reporters. “He had blood all over his face and blood was coming out of his hands and stuff and just looked bad. And it scared me to death. There was nothing that could be done. The car was on top of her. You couldn’t even see her.”
Dobson was pronounced dead at the scene, and Quinton was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.
"What should have been the greatest, most beautiful day of their lives is the end of one and what could very well be something hard for this young man to get over,” said Thomas. “I pray that he will.”
Authorities say that blood alcohol tests will determine if any sort of charges will be filed against Quinton for the tragic accident.
For 33-year-old Huyn Jang Jin, childhood was not easy. She was picked on for the way she looked, and many people told her she looked like a man. She never had a boyfriend, and she was tormented for her seemingly masculine face.
Eventually, the woman decided to make a change, and her University sponsored her to undergo plastic surgery in order to get the face she always wanted. The results are astounding, and her doctor took notice in a big way.
Huyn and her doctor are now engaged, with the plastic surgeon apparently thinking she was “too beautiful” not to propose to her after the operation.

Tennessee man James Cothran shot and killed his wife Wednesday after she threatened him with a knife for not removing his shoes.
Cothran told officers he had been watching TV when his wife walked into the living room and asked him to remove his shoes. Apparently, the shoes had belonged to Mrs. Cothran’s father, who had died 30 years ago.
When her husband refused to remove the shoes, Mrs. Cothran charged at him with the knife in hand and a “crazy look in her eyes”, according to Mr. Cothran.
In self defense, Mr. Cothran grabbed the .22 Magnum revolver at his side and fired it at her.
When Mr. Cothran called 911 and the dispatcher asked him to perform CPR, Cothran replied that he couldn’t.
“Right now I can’t do anything,” he said. “I’m so sorry.”
Mrs. Cothran was still breathing when police arrived at her home, but died later on Thanksgiving Day.
Mr. Cothran was detained, but later released under the claim of self-defense.
Police reported that they had been called to the home at least a dozen times within the year because of domestic incidents, but that no arrests were made or injuries reported.
Montana woman Jordan Linn Graham was charged with killing her husband Monday, after the pair argued on a cliff at Glacier National Park and then she shoved him off of it.
During the excursion, Graham had texted a friend with second thoughts concerning her new marriage.
“Oh well, I’m about to talk to him,” she texted, just before the incident.
According to the affidavit, the newly wed couple was walking the Loop Trail when Graham began to walk away during an argument. She stated that her late husband Cody Lee Johnson had grabbed her by the arm, and when she broke free of his grip, she pushed him in anger.
As a result, Johnson fell face first off the cliff.
Johnson was reported missing the next day when he did not show up for work, though Graham neglected to report anything to the police.
Instead, Graham told police that she had last seen him leaving the house with friends, but several days later found his dead body in the park. She explained knowing where his body was because the park was a place he wanted to see before he died.
Eventually, Graham admitted to lying and is now being charged with second-degree murder.
If convicted, Graham could face life in prison.
