Famous friends! On Friday, Steph Claire Smith revealed her surprising friendship with American singer Taylor Swift, whom she met while living in New York City when she was young.
She also explained that the two met at a gym when they were young, while Steph was working as a model in New York City and the pop star had moved to the Big Apple.
“I trained with Justin Gelband, did some of his classes and also one on a session,” she began.
“He was training Taylor – and one day when I went to my session she had just finished hers, so we met in the locker rooms.
“There were piles of paparazzi in front of the gym, so she wasn’t in a hurry and we got talking.”

The girls got along so well that Taylor told Steph she was happy to be her “first American friend.”
“Anyway, we caught up the next day, had brunch and trained together,” she added.
Steph and Taylor enjoyed each other’s company so much that she accompanied the blonde beauty to an animal adoption center where they picked up one of Taylor’s kittens.
“After that we probably caught up with each other four times and then kept in touch via text for about a year,” Steph continued.
