(Newser) – If you find Taylor Swift absolutely unbearable, well, apparently it's hereditary: Sources tell Page Six that Swift's parents are basically terrible. They're "incredibly difficult to deal with," says one. "Their expectations are enormous, and they are very hard to please." Plus, the source says, they both treat and pay employees terribly, because they think people should consider themselves "lucky to have the chance to work with" their superstar daughter.

And the "difficult and controlling stage parents" have managed to force out many senior members of Swift's team, sources say, and thus now have complete control over their daughter's career. Making all of this even more difficult to deal with: Sources say Scott and Andrea Swift are separated and can't even stand to be in a room together, but they haven't divorced out of fear of damaging Taylor's career. "At some point she’s going to need her parents to stop, before it turns into a total Katherine Heigl 'momager’ situation," says an insider.
