Exclusive Details

1214_taylor_swift_01A 24-year-old man was arrested for trespassing at Taylor Swift's Nashville home early Friday morning after he told police he took a bus from Wisconsin to be with the country star for her birthday.

Jacob Kulke was arrested at 1:45 AM after allegedly hopping a fence at the property. Kulke was detained by security and when police arrived, he told them he was the boyfriend of the homeowner. 

According to reports, Kulke told police he had been in contact with someone at the home via social media and he came to town to celebrate Swift's birthday (which was Thursday). It is unclear if Taylor was home at the time.

Kulke was booked into jail and held on $10,000 bond.

Kulke has a criminal past -- TMZ has learned he was convicted of battery, disorderly conduct and drug possession in Wisconsin back in 2010. He was placed on 13 months probation.

Couldn't be a boyfriend. He isn't a teenager.

That Harry Styles is certainly getting all lovey-dovey with his new girlfriend. The One Direction Romeo took American superstar Taylor Swift to meet his mum after treating her to a meal at his local village pub on Tuesday night. And yesterday they fed doves and swans together on a visit to a Lake District beauty spot. Harry pulled out all the stops to impress multi Grammy award-winner Taylor on her visit. After treating her to a slap-up meal at The Rising Sun in ­Derbyshire’s Peak District, the pair made their way home to his mum Anne – via Tesco. At the supermarket, 18-year-old Harry splashed out £3.89 on a tub of VO5 hair styling wax while Taylor wandered down the aisles looking at the vegetables.

Last night pub manager Sarah Walker revealed the celebrity couple met up with Harry’s sister, Gemma, and her boyfriend at their local in Hope Valley. Pub regular Gemma strolled in at 7.30pm just before Harry and Taylor arrived in his Range Rover Sport. After ordering a round of soft drinks, they sat in the window, next to the crackling log fire. The showbiz pair polished off a Yorkshire pudding and onion gravy starter, followed by roast turkey with all the trimmings for Harry and a whole lemon sole for his size-eight girlfriend.

Shunning the champagne, they stuck to non-alcoholic J2Os all evening. Taylor, who is 23 today, told pub-goers she was looking forward to the couple’s trip to Windermere in the Lake District and celebrating her birthday. But it seems they will spend Christmas an ocean apart as Taylor revealed plans to fly home to Nashville to spend the festive season with her family. Sarah, 37, said: “Taylor said she was loving being in Britain and she also seemed to like being in the country. “And she was excited about her birthday and about flying home for Christmas. She said she didn’t mind the cold, but it will be a lot warmer in Nashville. They were both lovely and she’s a honey.” After posing for pics and signing diners’ menus, Harry and Taylor settled the bill – which came in at just over £100 along with a handsome tip.

Yesterday, the tactile couple, who have now been dating for a month, enjoyed an afternoon feeding the swans and doves on Lake Windermere. One swan even pecked at the brand-new £995 Burberry handbag Taylor was carrying – a birthday gift from her new beau – as the country singer gamely batted the creature away. Giggling as they then fed the birds in the town centre, they were also spotted outside the Pandora jewellery shop by store manager Claire Dibbs.

Claire, 24, told the Mirror: “I was hyperventilating – I just never expected to see them. “Taylor introduced herself – she was really lovely. She said they were just here for the day and I think they were there with his parents. She had a lot of bags from Beatrix Potter World. I saw some cuddly toys poking out of the top of the bag. “They’d done a lot of shopping. Taylor said she loved the area and said it was really pretty.” Harry and Taylor first met in America in April when Harry was on tour with One Direction. After going on a couple of ‘secret dates’, they reportedly split up after the heart-throb was spotted kissing American model Emma Ostilly in New Zealand. But they were spotted dating in New York’s Central Park recently. The date came hours before One Direction’s sell-out gig in front of 20,000 fans at the Madison Square Garden. The loved-up singers gazed into each others eyes, stopping to chat to some kids and to watch the sea lions at the zoo. And last week the rumours they were an item were confirmed when she flew him in her private jet from New York to London to attend the Jingle Bell Ball at London’s O2 arena. Harry ditched the rest of his bandmates to spend a few hours with her on the flight, while the others flew back to the UK on a domestic flight.

Well, I guess he won't get to celebrate her birthday. Maybe they should not broadcast her personal birthday to the world. She should not be friendly to people and let meet&greet be her motto. Why don't she go private like other stars do. She pretends to like her fans and wants to meet them personally acting like she is just neighborly and loving friendship type. She should not act innocent to people. She is a private person and she says herself. I don't like privacy on all Tv interviews. Well, how did this guy do wrong when she don't want to be private or under protection. She should not lie in her broadcast. She lies alot to media and sounds too artificial to be true natured. Look her up all her interviews sounds too good to be true a celebrity who wants to meet people and be all love. Bologna. She is fake& fraud. She is no virgin nor at 13 years old either.Nor is she catholic religion either. She is no innocent girl. Look her up and see how many guys she had sex with-and how she denies and lies about it. Look up her XXX rated pictures she has over 500 of them online and a sex tape by Mayer himself.

Just like Rhianna's trespasser, he heard that a lot of people have already been inside and he wanted to go in too. And not the house.
