According to the site, Randy reached out to the “Red” singer to help him reboot his career and Taylor refused. The website reported that an unnamed source claims:
“Randy is desperate to get his career back on track. He has had his people reach out to Taylor Swift about a possible duet, but she said no!”
The website goes on to add that another unnamed source, allegedly close to Taylor, says that she refuses to work with the struggling singer:
“Taylor is steering well clear of Randy. She knows about all his troubles. She can’t be associated with someone like that.”
Randy was hospitalized last summer, underwent surgery and suffered a stroke. Recently photos have surfaced that show that Randy’s condition is improving.
