The New South Wales police are currently looking into claims that Taylor Swift’s dad may have physically assaulted a paparazzi member in Sydney, right after the final show of her sold-out Eras Tour in Australia.

The NSW police were informed that Scott Swift, aged 71, supposedly attacked Ben McDonald, aged 51, at approximately 2:30am on Tuesday at the Neutral Bay wharf.

According to McDonald, Taylor Swift and her group were sailing around the harbor in a luxurious yacht late at night following her last performance in Australia.

The famous celebrity disembarked from the ship and strolled along the dock, accompanied by security guards. McDonald claims that the guards forcefully poked umbrellas towards his face and camera.

After getting into her car, McDonald claims that a man hit her in the face and then proceeded to enter the vehicle and drive off.

McDonald stated that he did not initially recognize the man as her father, and it was surprising to him, but he will leave it to the police to handle the situation.

According to McDonald, he utilized photographs he had captured to positively identify the individual as Scott Swift.

He informed the police of the accusation, and officers from the North Shore police area command began their investigation. The police stated that McDonald did not need any medical treatment.

No accusations have been made.

A representative for Taylor Swift did not provide a direct response to inquiries regarding the accusation against her father. However, the representative stated that two unidentified persons were forcefully attempting to approach Taylor, physically grabbing at her security team, and threatening to harm a female staff member by throwing her into the water.

Taylor Swift wrapped up the Australian leg of her Eras Tour in Sydney on Monday night.

She performed to her largest crowd ever at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 16 February, performing two more times in Melbourne and wowing audiences at four shows at Sydney’s Accor Stadium.

Approximately 600,000 individuals witnessed her performance during the past two weekends in Australia.
