Arguably the biggest celebrity right now, Taylor Swift is well and truly in the spotlight.

From attending boyfriend Travis Kelce’s football games to her ongoing Eras Tour, every which way you turn there’s mention of Swift.

That also includes what the singer does with her personal assets, including her private jet.

You may recall we previously covered said private jet, which is fit for royalty.

Just as well, as the American singer has been jetting all over the place on her tour, which has broken the record for the highest-grossing tour of all time.

The Dassault Falcon 900LX, dubbed ‘Number 13’, was purchased by Taylor Swift way back in 2011.

But she’s reportedly offloaded her prized possession for a cool $40 million.

According to the Federal Aviation Authority’s website, she parted ways with the private jet at the end of last month, handing over the reins to Missouri-based car insurance company, Car Shield.

But this news isn’t just about glamorous goodbyes – it’s amidst a storm of drama surrounding private jet tracking, with a student seemingly at the controls.

Taylor Swift, in all her ‘luck’, finds herself embroiled in hot water after a keen-eyed student from the University Florida decided to play air traffic controller.

The student has revealed every minute detail about her travels – whether it’s a leisurely cross-country flight or a mere 13-minute jaunt.

On the subject of the latter, the songstress is understandably facing flak for her carbon footprint and environmental indifference, all thanks to Jack Sweeney.

The private jet tracker has been broadcasting her flight plans loud and clear across social media.

“Just a disgusting human being like why,” one blunt user remarked on X.

“I sat in traffic for 40 mins yesterday lol,” another quipped.

Swift’s private jet antics have been on the radar (pardon the pun) for years now, but her legal entourage has stepped in and find themselves in a public showdown with Sweeney.

According to The Washington Post, Swift’s legal team sent a cease-and-desist letter to Sweeney in December.

They alleged that by tracking and sharing movement of her private jet, Sweeney was providing a roadmap for individuals with harmful or nefarious intentions.

He’s also accused of “disregarding the personal safety of others”; “willful and repeated harassment”; and “intentional, offensive, and outrageous conduct and consistent violations violations of our client’s privacy.”

The letter from Swift’s lawyers, which Sweeney shared with The Post this week, asserts that there is “no legitimate interest in or public need for this information, other than to stalk, harass, and exert dominion and control.”

In response, Sweeney clarified that he never intended any harm with his actions, stating that he’s compiling “public information.”

“I actually think Swift has some good songs,” the college student remarked.

“I believe in transparency and public information,” he added.
