It was reported today that one Taylor Swift also happened to have been at the same show and was getting, according to several sources, loud and obnoxious backstage shortly after the JABBAWOCKEEZ had finished their performance.
Swift apparently had no clue who Tate was or that she was a professional fighter as several eye-witnesses reported the young pop star was getting more than a little wordy with the UFC veteran.
“I don’t know if Taylor was drunk or what but I looked over and she was in Miesha’s face,” said Branden Bishop, a bartender at the Luxor. “That’s about the time Miesha grabbed Taylor’s neck. I was thinking that Taylor was about to get her ass kicked but Miesha was just trying to get her out of her face.”
Several crew members for the JABBAWOCKEEZ grabbed Swift and helped calm her down.
“We have no idea why Taylor was so upset at Miesha or if she was just drunk or something,” said one crew member. “But we had to step in because that’s not a battle she would have won.”
“The whole thing is crazy,” said Kevin “KB” Brewer of the JABBAWOCKEEZ. “Because Taylor Swift seems like the most innocent and sweet person on the planet but she looked liked she was possessed.”
