Taylor Swift’s alleged stalker is headed to psychiatric facility

A Taylor Swift-obsessed fan charged with stalking the “Shake It Off” singer at her Manhattan apartment was committed to a state psychiatric facility Monday.

Mohammed Jaffar, 29, had been found unfit to stand trial by court doctor. Prosecutors did not object to the commitment order.

Jaffar briefly appeared in Manhattan Supreme Court, where Justice Laura Ward ordered him sent to the facility.

Prosecutors said Jaffar called Swift’s management about 60 times in a two-week period and went into the megastar’s Tribeca building on Feb. 6.

About a week later, he came back two days in a row to ring her doorbell. Jaffar continued to violate orders to stay away from Swift until his March 6 arrest, prosecutors said.

He will remain in psychiatric custody until he is found fit to stand trial on burglary and stalking charges.

Authorities say he began harassing the performer in December.
