A rep for Taylor Swift is speaking on the allegations against the superstar’s father, who is accused of assaulting a paparazzo in Australia this week, following Swift’s Eras Tour shows in Sydney.

The spokesperson offered context for the situation in a statement to People, but did not elaborate on the claims directed at Scott Swift, 71.

“Two individuals were aggressively pushing their way towards Taylor, grabbing at her security personnel, and threatening to throw a female staff member into the water,” said the rep.

The elder Swift is being investigated in Sydney after allegedly hitting a photographer, 51, on a ferry wharf as he and the “Cruel Summer” singer, 34, were leaving a luxury yacht, according to local outlets.

 

Neither man was injured, the Sydney Morning Herald previously reported.

Authorities are investigating an “alleged assault after a 71-year-old man allegedly assaulted a 51-year-old man at Neutral Bay Wharf” that occurred at roughly 2:30 a.m. local time Tuesday, they told People in a statement. Police would not confirm the names of those involved.

They confirmed that the younger man “did not require medical treatment.”
