The internet went wild on Monday over silly claims that Taylor Swift left her New York City apartment building by way of suitcase.
A radio station called Spin 1038 in Ireland was first to notice a questionable caption on new photos posted by Splash News that read:
"Taylor Swift has been reportedly being transported in a huge suitcase from her Tribecca apartment into her truck. A fleet of cars including two large cadillacs and three suv’s arrive at Tailor Swift’s apartment in Tribecca to move a large suitcase from apartment to truck. Almost a dozen of Taylor Swift security guards were present to move this package carefully as Taylor Swift remains to be unseen for a long time."

The images show two men loading a large black suitcase with wheels into a black SUV while a third man watches on, making eye contact with paparazzi in a few of the shots. Splash News later retracted their original caption and replaced it with the following:
“Taylor Swift’s security guards are seen moving a huge case into the trunk of an awaiting SUV,” but not before the internet took the initial post and ran with it.
Later a site spokesperson said, “We’re having to actually retract that.”Swift is in between albums and has not been active in the public eye. She is said to be working her sixth studio album.
Wouldn't this be epic if it was true?!
