A woman who claims she went to the same high school as Taylor Swift says that many of the singer's classmates "hated" her because they were "jealous" of her success.

Jessica McLane, now 30, said in a recent TikTok that she went to Hendersonville High School in Nashville, Tennessee - the same school that Swift, now 32, attended.

They were at the school together for less than a year in 2006 when McLane was a freshman and the 'All Too Well' singer was a junior.

Check out McLane's video below:

Swift, who was raised primarily in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, moved with her family to Tennessee when she was 13 in order to pursue a career in country music.

She was a student at Hendersonville High School for more than two years - before she started homeschooling when she bagged herself a record deal.

McLane tells her 16.8K followers in a video uploaded on September 2: "So, in 2006, I’m a freshman in high school. Taylor is I think a junior. ‘Teardrops on my Guitar’ had just come out I think over the summer. Obviously, she got really big, and that’s the year that she left school and got homeschooled."

The TikToker then went on to claim that around the time that the then teenager's career took off, "most" students at Hendersonville High School "hated" the singer.

McLane went on to say: "Keep in mind, these are her peers, this isn't, like, just random people on the internet. She was literally 16, 17, leaving high school to pursue a career that people were telling her that she could never have.

"Also, the guys she was writing these songs about, they were still in school. They were still there. And now they have a hit song about them talking about what a s****y boyfriend they are."

McLane also shared that there were rumors being spread about how Swift even managed to get signed in the first place and start a music career at such a young age.

She added: "There were not a lot of people in high school who had nice things to say about her ... There were general rumors about her being b***hy. [People would say], 'She said this, she said that, she was mean.'"

However, McLane's video took a bit of a turn when McLane referred to Swift as a "petty b****".

Back in 2009, Swift allegedly invited McLane's senior class to the 2009 CMA awards, which the TikToker now thinks she did purely in order to give her old high school a proverbial "f*** you" - hence the "petty b****" remark.
