Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande quietly gift thousands to fans who've lost their jobs

Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande are privately helping out fans who've found themselves in desperate financial straits due to the coronavirus outbreak, E! News and Page Six report.

Holly Turner, a freelance music photographer in New York City, posted on Tumblr about her fears of losing her apartment after her regular income dried up. "I have been working my entire life to be able to live in New York City and I thought that was going to be taken, and [Taylor Swift] saved that for me," Turner, who quietly received $3,000 from the star, told E! News.

Grande has also reportedly been gifting fans between $500 and $1,000, Page Six reports. "She reached out and took care of my salary for the month," one fan said.

Hey, maybe you ought to call her an angel, after all.
