On Wednesday, Taylor Swift's rep denied reports that the 22-year-old singer and her boyfriend Conor Kennedy crashed Liam Kerr and Kyle Kennedy's wedding, but a high-profile wedding guest wants to set the record straight.

"Today" show host Kathie Lee Gifford confirmed that Swift and her new 18-year-old beau did, in fact, crash the wedding.

"Why can't I stay out of trouble? I was just a guest at that wedding. [Kyle] is actually my granddaughter by marriage," explained Gifford on Thursday's show. "The truth is, because I was there, Vicki's account is accurate," she said and confirmed that Taylor and Conor were asked to leave "twice."

On Wednesday, the bride's mother, Victoria Gifford Kennedy, told the Boston Herald that cousin Conor texted her an hour prior to the wedding and asked if they could attend. Though she asked them not to attend, the couple showed up anyway. When Victoria confronted Taylor and asked her to leave, she said, "It was like talking to a ghost. She seemed to look right past me."

Kathie Lee said she spotted the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer waiting around in the hallway, and explained that she didn't know what was going on at the time until she spoke to Victoria, who told her, "I’m really not happy about this."

Gifford did give Swift the benefit of the doubt and added, "I'm not sure she didn't know she was invited."

According to Gifford, the bride's mother didn't want the new couple's presence to detract from her daughter's big day.

"It's the bride's day, and that was Vicki's other concern. 'This is my daughter's day and I would appreciate it if you would not come,'" she said.
