“The only one who understands me”

Die-hard Taylor Swift fans spend thousands of dollars to see the global superstar.

An obviously delusional stalker got into her Tribeca building for free.

Ashley Arbor, 43, was arrested on Friday after authorities said he entered the superstar’s premises in the Big Apple by mistake. According to court documents, he was charged with two counts of trespassing.

A smiling Arbor, sporting a goatee, glasses and a royal blue shirt, was more than happy to address the Post after his arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court on Saturday.

“I was disappointed,” he said of not finding Swift. “I love her. I want to marry her. I want her to be my anchor – someone to make sure I stay there. I’ve never had anyone to keep me grounded.”

It’s the latest in a series of horrific fan-obsessed incidents Swift has experienced throughout her meteoric career.

Arbor, who grew up in Michigan, claims he rode a Greyhound bus from Atlanta to see the “Anti-Hero” singer and proclaimed his love for her, bizarrely boasting that he used to be one Had a relationship with the “Shake It Off” superstar.

A vigilant resident prevented the eerie incident from escalating.

Arbor reportedly rang the bell until someone answered the door, he told The Post. The uninvited visitor walked down a long hallway and two doors next to the elevator and entered one when a woman inside asked what he was doing there.

When the subject of Swift came up, the smart resident told Arbor to go outside, ring the bell, and wait for someone to let him in.

When Arbor followed these instructions, the NYPD was waiting for him.

Arbor was released. He is due to appear in court again in October

When asked why he wanted to be with Swift, Arbor gushed, “Because she’s very caring like she’s me, except she’s a woman. She really is the only one who gets me.”

The Swift fanatic continued, “I know she knows I mean no harm. I would never hit a woman. I wouldn’t hurt her – no, no way.”

Arbor lamented that he didn’t see Swift in concert.

“I wasn’t that lucky,” he said, adding, “I’m in my right mind. I was a little crazier when I was younger.”

He said he has no plans to return to the “Blank Space” singer’s residence.

“No no. They told me to stay away from their home,” Arbor insisted. The homeless man said he would likely “stay around and scour the trash for food.”

Arbor added: “I’m a very single-minded guy, sometimes to my detriment. You gotta try when it comes to love ’cause I don’t wanna live in regret That’s the worst. You just sit there like I could have done that, like I should have done that. It’s a black hole.”

In parting, Arbor said, “I love you, Taylor. I want to spend the rest of my life making you happy, making you laugh and making it up to you – what’s that word you’re using? Stupid behavior I dismissed when I was 17. I love you.”

The bizarre incident follows Hundreds of Swifties swarm the singer on Friday night while exiting a restaurant on Long Beach Island in New Jersey.

The pop superstar is said to have dined with high-profile friends at Jack Antonoff’s rehearsal dinner ahead of his wedding to Margaret Qualley on Saturday.
