According to The Tennessean, Nashville pilot Michael Callan recently named Taylor his next of kin right before he mysteriously crashed the plane he was in control of.
The 45-year-old Canadian who died in the late-night crash apparently wanted Taylor to get all of his stuff once he passed, typical of those who are listed as someone's "next of kin." What's weird is that Taylor isn't related to the guy and actually has no idea who he even is.
"The first we heard of this was when the appropriate authorities contacted Taylor's management about the crash," Paula Erickson, Taylor Swift's publicist, wrote in statement.
"Taylor does not know this person."
The whole crash still remains a mystery, as the pilot didn't have plans on landing in Nashville but on an island near Lake Erie. It's still unknown why he was in the area or why the plane crashed. He somehow attempted to get across the country's border and turned the plane's transponder off. Weirdly, he also circled Nashville International Airport for as long as 2 1/2 hours early in the morning on October 29 before attempting to land.
Michael had no arrest history in Nashville and wasn't a well-known Swiftie, to say the least.
Surprisingly, authorities think the whole crash was accidental. Of course, some people don't agree with that though simply because of the pilot's weird actions that night and because he made sure to name someone famous as his next of kin. It was almost like he knew he'd be dying soon, right?
