We knew she was trouble when she walked in... but not this much trouble!
Taylor Swift has riled her neighbours with her superstar treatment in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, where she owns a $17 million beachfront mansion.
Last Saturday, onlookers at local restaurant The Cooked Goose were stunned when the 24-year-old's security team reportedly "harassed" diners.
"Taylor and her two friends took a table toward the back of the restaurant," an eyewitness told Radar Online. "But her two security guards took a seat at the bar, eyeing the other diners like a hawk."
According to the witness, T-Swizzle's guards barked at guests who even dared to touch their mobile phones.
"My friend took her phone out of her purse and one of the men screamed 'NO PICTURES!'" the insider says. "She was just checking the time!"
The same source explains there were no crazy fans approaching Taylor and some people didn't even realise she was there… until her security made it blatantly known to everyone. We're told she ate eggs with hot sauce and left the bill to her people to fix up.
It gets worse, though. That afternoon, Taylor's security blocked off part of a public beach so the '22' singer could enjoy the sun to herself.
"They were turning people away," a source says. "It's a public beach!"
Yikes! Taylor's sure getting a reputation around her beachside digs, which she bought in April 2013. Not long after she settled in, locals were up in arms about Taylor's security turning beach-goers away from a beach-access pathway near her home.
In December 2013, residents fumed about Taylor rebuilding a seawall in front of her mansion, restricting access to the public beach for fishermen and surfers.
"I don't know how the hell they let her do this without approval or nothing," one elderly resident who'd lived in the area since 1961 told Mail Online.
Taylor's bodyguards have evenbeen accused of harassing volunteers picking up trash near her home.>/p>
Come on, Tay-Tay, you're better than this...
