Taylor Swift gave one of her biggest fans $1,989.
The 'Blank Space' hitmaker sent Rebekah Bortnicker a cheque and a number of other personalized gifts, including a necklace and a drawing of her nickname 'Beks,' to express her gratitude to the college student for always supporting her.

The fan shared an emotional video of herself opening up the special FedEx package on YouTube and bursting into tears after reading a letter from Taylor, in which the generous 25-year-old star wrote: "Rebekah, you're now $1,989 closer to paying the student loans."
After composing herself, the young fan said: "Thank you so much. I don't even know what to say."
She also later thanked her idol on Tumblr, writing: "I know I've said it so many times already but thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Never in a million years did I ever imagine this happening to me. I am so honored and so thankful to call myself a fan, to have supported you all of these years because you are truly the most amazing, genuine, and selfless person. ... I can't wait to see you on tour and thank you a 1,989 more times."
The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker sent Rebekah the gifts just weeks after she melted the hearts of hundreds of her fans by surprising them with hand-picked Christmas presents.
Last month, the singer bought loads of gifts for her supporters - known as Swifties - and secretly sent them out over the festive period.
