What would be your first stop if you were released from prison after nearly a decade?

Well for Gypsy Rose Blanchard, it’s Arrowhead Stadium.

If you’re not familiar with the wild story of Gypsy Rose, the 32-year old was sentenced to 10 years in prison back in 2015 for the murder of her abusive mother, Dee Dee. At the time of the crime, Gypsy’s mother had convinced everyone that her daughter was disabled, unable to walk and requiring around-the-clock care.

But it later turned out to be a severe case of Munchausen by proxy, and the severely undernourished Gypsy was not really disabled at all. And her and her boyfriend, who she had met online without her mother’s knowledge, had devised a plan to kill Dee Dee in order to free Gypsy from her abuse.

It’s a story that captivated the country, and numerous movies and documentaries have been released about the bizarre story, including the popular Mommy Dead and Dearest. Ultimately, most people felt sorry for Gypsy for the years of abuse she was forced to suffer at the hands of her mother, and ultimately she pled guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Well now, Gypsy’s sentence is complete and she’s a free woman – for the first time in her life.

And what does she want to do with her newfound freedom?

Meet Taylor Swift.

According to TMZ, Blanchard has tickets to the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Cincinnati Bengals on New Years Eve – because she hopes to meet Taylor Swift, the girlfriend of star Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

Gypsy says that Taylor’s music helped her get through the years of abuse she suffered at the hands of her mother, and that she used the commissary money that her father sent to her in prison to buy all of the new Taylor Swift albums while she was behind bars.

A fan of Gypsy’s even started a petition to encourage Taylor to meet with the woman before the game – though so far it only has a little over 100 signatures.

But even if she doesn’t get to meet Taylor at the game, Gypsy has already bought tickets to see her Eras Tour stop in New Orleans in 2024 too.
