Taylor Swift 's Red tour nearly got way more red.

Ed Sheeran, who is serving as the "22" singer's opening act, recalled how a Lord of the Rings sword given to him by director Peter Jackson almost took out the songstress while the two were on a private plane together.

"It's like a real sword. I got it shipped over, shipped over to Omaha, so I was bringing it back to Nashville and I think [Taylor] and her crew were weirded out by it anyway. They were just like, 'Why does Ed have a sword?'" Sheeran told MTV.

"As the plane started to take off, it was on the table and it went like this," continued Sheeran, motioning the ascent with his hands. "The plane is kind of taking off and [the sword] started sliding down and I was like, 'No!' It was just about to impale Taylor."

Yikes! Definitely gives Swift's song "I Knew You Were Trouble" a whole new meaning.
