A Canadian pilot who was tragically killed in a plane crash was apparently a big Taylor Swift fan.

According to a report by WSMV News 4, Michael Callan died on Oct. 29, 2013 when his Cessna 172R plane crashed in Nashville. According to a 2016 investigation on the crash, Callan was drunk and attempted to land during a thick fog after circling Nashville International Airport for two hours. He was alone in the plane and never tried to contact air traffic control, investigators said.

But that was after Callan has listed singer Taylor Swift as his emergency contact on his membership application to the Windsor Flying Club. A copy of his application was obtained by WSMV this week.

Callan’s obsession with Swift began years before and had escalated to the point that he underwent a mental health evaluation in 2012, when his evaluator said he had been writing letters to Swift that had the “flavor of stalking,” according to WSMV.

The Nashville news station reported that Callan was actually an infamous bank robber in Windsor before becoming a pilot, allegedly having robbed five banks in 11 months.

Swift’s publicist told the Tennessean the singer never met Callan.
