Taylor Swift’s Publicist Makes Rare Statement: “Enough is enough with these fabricated lies”


Tree Paine is the unusually named publicist who speaks for Taylor Swift. But she doesn’t address rumors very often because they’re usually ridiculous.

Now she’s posted a message to Twitter because she’s had, it and I don’t blame her. This is in response to a gossip account on Instagram called Deux Moi that functions on blind items and innuendo and no facts. Sometimes they get it right, and when they don’t, who cares? But this time, you’ll see Paine’s response to this pain in her neck.

I’m in LA this weekend and already I’ve heard a nice story about Taylor Swift and the remixing of her concert audio for the “Eras Tour” soundtrack. Apparently, she was lovely (how do you like that?) and everyone enjoyed working with her. No dirt, however. She was professional and pleasant. When that happens, you have to make something up because no one will believe it!
