A Taylor Swift lookalike has received a broken jaw after being attacked, according to media reports this week.
The teenager, Xenna Kristian, is a Swift impersonator, and has said that she feels as though many times people are jealous of her career. However, the 18 year old admitted she never believed she would be attacked for her work.
Kristian has said, "Some girls at college had started making nasty comments, but it escalated really quickly. I tried to get her off me but my friends had to help. The teachers didn't do anything. I never expected anything like this to happen. It's not nice to see people being nasty about you."
The girl reportedly suffered a broken jaw and had a number of other minor injuries after her attackers grabbed her out of a seat by the hair and began kicking her, according to MStars.
The attackers have not indicated why they attacked the Swift lookalike, but Kristian is adamant that she was specifically targeted because they were jealous of her.
Kristian has also said that this is not the first time she has been abused because she looks like Swift. After the singer and One Direction's Harry Styles broke up following a short relationship, numerous Styles fans allegedly yelled at Kristian in the streets over the incident.
The teen is popular and has numerous gigs lined up to impersonate Swift, however, she has now said that the attack has left her missing out.
"I've had to cancel three appearances just from this week, and I won't be able to do any more until the bruising goes. If my jaw is broken I could be out of action for two months," Kristian said.
