Taylor Swift lookalike gets a broken jaw from a jealous girl

Eighteen-year-old Taylor Swift lookalike Xenna Kristian may be too good of a doppelganger.

In April, Kristian was regularly shouted at by One Direction fans while the real Swift was dating member Harry Styles.

“At first, I was a bit taken aback," Kristian told SWNS. "But then I realized they were shouting things like, ‘Leave Harry alone!’, or ‘Harry is mine!'"

But the jealous fans' abuse has gotten physical. On Wednesday, the Daily Mail reported that Kristian was studying when bullies pulled from her chair and kicked her in the face.

The attacker continued until Kristian's friends pulled the two apart. Kristian is now bruised all over and may have a broken jaw.

Kristian started to perform as a professional lookalike this year and has been perfecting her speaking and singing voice to sound more like Taylor's.

Because she now makes money impersonating Swift, she's out of work until the injuries heal. This year, she has performed several times for charity events and private parties.

Police are investigating the report but have not commented on the case.
