Taylor Swift knows a thing or two about heartbreak, so when one of her fans was unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend over text, Taylor reached out to her via cyberspace to offer heartfelt words of advice. The pop star gave a thoughtful, detailed reply to teenager Kasey Andrew, after spotting her message on Tumblr.
"Taylorswift I hope you see this but we've been together for 4 months, he just texted me and told me he was done with me," wrote Kasey. "Gave me no reason and kept trying to get me to do irrational things to get him back. Now he's calling me names and I just feel crumbled. I don't know what to do."
The young fan sent several posts including one that said, "I thought he was forever Taylor," before she managed to grab the singer's attention.
