Blanchard even used the commission money her father sent her to purchase all of Swift's albums, according to TMZ.

The outlet added that if the December 31 plan doesn't work out, Blanchard is also planning to show up at Swift's tour in New Orleans next fall.

Blanchard was abused for two decades by her mother, Dee Dee.

The truth only came out after Blanchard's then-boyfriend, Nicholas Godejohn, stabbed Dee Dee to death in their Missouri home in June 2015.

He also stole money from the home and mailed the knife to his home in Wisconsin before the couple fled there.
