Kathie Lee Gifford Recalls Taylor Shift Crashing Wedding - Swift's Rep Denies Reports
A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has denied rumors she crashed a wedding over the weekend, even though the mother of the bride and Kathie Lee Gifford both said she did.
The singer attended the marriage of Kyle Kennedy and Liam Kerr in Boston, Massachusetts on Saturday with her rumored new boyfriend Conor Kennedy.
However, the bride's mother Victoria Gifford Kennedy claims Swift was not invited to the event at the city's Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel and was asked to leave.
She told the Boston Herald, "They (Swift and Kennedy) texted me an hour before the wedding and asked if they could come. I responded with a very clear, 'Please do not come.' They came anyway... I personally went up to Ms. Swift, whose entrance distracted the entire event, politely introduced myself to her, and asked her as nicely as I could to leave. It was like talking to a ghost. She seemed to look right past me."
Kathie Lee Gifford also stated on The Today Show on Thursday that Swift crashed the wedding party and was asked "twice" to leave, and said they eventually did leave. Gifford also went on to say, "I was out in the hallway, she was waiting, standing around, and he came out and took her by the hand and they left," Gifford said. "So, I didn't know there was any drama going on at the time, until I spoke to Vicki."
Nevertheless, Swift's representative Paula Erikson is adamant the bride was happy to see the singer at the ceremony, saying, "There is no truth to that (story). Taylor was invited to the wedding and the bride thanked her profusely for being there."
