Roger Alvarado has pleaded guilty to criminal contempt after he was arrested for the second time breaking into the 'Bad Blood' singer's Manhattan home last month.

AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift's stalker has struck a plea deal over charges of breaking into her Manhattan home for the second time.

According to editors at Page Six, Roger Alvarado, 23, pleaded guilty to criminal contempt and agreed to abide by an order of protection on Monday, April 01. He now faces two to four years in prison.

The break in last month came just weeks after he was released from a six month stint in jail for a similar break in at the same property. He was also ordered to attend a mental health programme in his native Florida and handed five years probation.

Prosecuting, Assistant District Attorney Caitlyn Jaile told the court he flew to New York on 7 March and returned to try and enter the "Bad Blood" hitmaker's New York townhouse, violating his probation and a previous order of protection.

Alvarado was observed smashing a glass door by Swift's security team on security footage they were monitoring from their base in Nashville, Tennessee. They alerted her New York staff who contacted the police, and officers arrested the stalker on her patio. She was not at home at the time of the incident, which resulted in $4,000 (£3,070) of damage.

The popstar recently told Elle magazine that she lives in "fear of violence" in her personal life and at gigs, as she has been targeted by several stalkers and worries about security following the terrorist attack on Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester, England in 2017.

Alvarado first broke into the 29-year-old singer's property last year, when he took a shower, then curled up on her bed for a nap. She was not at home at the time.

After his second arrest he told the New York Post he did not regret the incident, despite facing years in prison.

"I don't want to hurt her. I just wanted to speak to her, to talk to her. She seems nice (and) cool," he said, adding, "I don't regret it."

He will be sentenced at Manhattan Supreme Court on 14 April.
