In 2008 Taylor fed a story to People Magazine entitled "Taylor's Stalker Moment with John Mayer." This year, 2023, she got People to delete it (it's permanently archived on archive.org) and publish instead an altered "relationship timeline" with untrue bias: There was no intimate dinner in Nashville with only a few friends--there were over 15 people in a group and John was there to play with Keith Urban. Taylor Swift would have never had any personal information about John Mayer without the internet, his music, and his social media. He was kind to the obsessive teenager, but on guard. He was aware she was already copying and marketing herself as others--what she learned from her father and bought marketing as the way to go, and it was working. That invasion into his personal life and copying him as if there were a relationship and feeding stories to the press is why he deleted his social media in 2010, to get her to stop personally and professionally invading and trying to force that public. She was marketed as a young Faith Hill even plagiarizing Faith's album covers, but she needed a love story. For power and control, she would also have in reserve the personality to slam that person when they didn't comply. That narcissistic pattern works. It has worked for over fourteen years. John Mayer is completely innocent of the accusations of "Dear John"--abuse to gain control over him and his career. There was never a flirtation, never a romantic relationship. It was manipulation. Katy Perry even made a public appearance with him in 2009 the night before the infamous VMAs to ward off the untrue public threat. In 2010 the lyrics of "Dear John" were taken directly from what Taylor had found on-line: my writing to John (some permanently archived) and from what was available of John. What has continued is many years of lies, copying, and harassment. I am coming forward because it is the right thing to do for John. A very beautiful bond became apparent between John and me in 2010 in communicating online, and that sent Taylor into a jealous and hateful rage. I am the reason she went for the public kill.
