NEW YORK — They are never, ever, ever getting back together.

A serial Taylor Swift stalker busted for repeated unwanted visits at the pop singer’s Tribeca townhouse was sent to prison for up to four years on Monday.

Roger Alvarado, 23, was also ordered by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Laura Ward to stay away from Swift and refrain from any contact with her.

Alvarado pleaded guilty on April 1 to criminal contempt and attempted burglary. In exchange he was promised two to four years behind bars.

In his most recent collar on March 7, he was caught trying to smash through a glass door on the terrace of the Grammy-winner’s Franklin Street building.

His latest arrest followed a string of 2018 break-in efforts. In one incident last April, he managed to get inside when Swift wasn’t home. He took a shower and had a nap in her bed before cops busted him. Prior to that, he was caught trying to smash through a door with a shovel.
