Yesterday Taylor Swift was reported to have been transported from her house into a waiting car, in a giant suitcase.

Stranger things have happened, and the singer is definitely known for having unconventional means of avoiding the paparazzi.

The news was first reported via photo-sharing site Splash News who posted a photograph of two men carrying a large suitcase from Taylor Swift’s apartment in Manhattan. According to the caption, Taylor Swift was herself inside the suitcase. The story was also shared by Spin1038:



According to the Daily Mail, Splash has since had to retract the story. 'I literally just put the phone down from someone on Taylor's camp. We're having to actually retract that,' a Splash representative, who declined to be named, told when asked about the story.

Reportedly, the rumour was sparked by the photographer who assumed she was being smuggled out of her house via the suitcase after hearing a rumour that first surfaced in May that she is transported in a box to avoid fans and paparazzi who hang out outside her building.

It was fun while it lasted, and the Twitter reactions have made it all worthwhile:
