'They're jealous of my looks': Taylor Swift lookalike claims she has been beaten by bullies who envy her resemblance to star singer Xenna Kristian suffered bruises and a possible broken jaw after the attack The 18-year-old said bullying started when people noticed her resemblance Xenna, from Shropshire, can't perform as a lookalike until injuries vanish
A Taylor Swift lookalike claims she has been kicked in the face because people were 'jealous' of her star looks.
Convincing lookalike Xenna Kristian, 18, suffered bruising after allegedly being pulled from her chair and repeatedly kicked while studying at college on Tuesday.
Xenna, from Shropshire, said: 'Some girls at college had started making nasty comments, but it escalated really quickly.
Xenna said: 'I tried to get her off me but my friends had to help. The teachers didn't do anything.
'I never expected anything like this to happen. It's not nice to see people being nasty about you.
'Since I started being a lookalike people have been saying stuff. They must be jealous that I'm going off to do something with my life.
'Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. I still feel shaken up.'
Xenna started performing as a Taylor Swift lookalike earlier this year, after people started commenting on how much she looked like her.
She has done several charity performances and private parties.
But now Xenna will have to take time off until the bruising goes down and her jaw recovers.
She said: 'I've had to cancel three appearances just from this week, and I won't be able to do any more until the bruising goes.'
Xenna's mother, bed and breakfast owner Pauline, 56, said: 'The college called me and told me she'd got head injuries and had maybe broken her jaw.
'My legs were like jelly. I just had to get there as soon as I could.
'Xenna has never got into a fight or even a scrape before, but she's been getting some remarks since she started the Taylor Swift lookalike thing.'
A spokesman for West Mercia police said: 'We have received a report that a teenage girl was assaulted on King Street, however we cannot comment further at this time.'
