Looking too much like Taylor Swift can prove quite an unfortunate coincidence, Xenna Kristian from Shropshire says for the Daily Mail. Just recently, she was attacked by a girl in school and had her jaw broken because she’s a Swift lookalike.
Speaking with the tab, the 18-year-old student reveals it wasn’t until recently that she signed with management as an official Taylor Swift lookalike.
She’d been bullied before that as well but, at that point, things got spectacularly bad for her in school. It all culminated with the aforementioned incident.
“Some girls at college had started making nasty comments, but it escalated really quickly,” Xenna says.
“She girl came up behind me and dragged me off my chair by my pony tail, then started kicking me in the face. It just came as a complete shock,” she explains.
“I tried to get her off me but my friends had to help. The teachers didn't do anything. I never expected anything like this to happen. It's not nice to see people being nasty about you,” Xenna adds.
She hints that her bullies might be One Directioners, since they never picked on her the way they do today – and because some of the things they yell at her in the street, like how she should lay off Harry.
“Harry” is Harry Styles of One Direction, who dated Swift some time ago for a hot second, and then broke up with her amidst reports he found her way too clingy.
“Since I started being a lookalike people have been saying stuff. They must be jealous that I'm going off to do something with my life. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. I still feel shaken up,” Xenna laments.
What’s even worse, with her lookalike career just taking off, she has to stay indoors for a while until her bruises heal.
“I've had to cancel three appearances just from this week, and I won't be able to do any more until the bruising goes,” she says.
