BREAKING: Taylor Swift And Conor Kennedy Split
Just when things were going so well for Taylor Swift, 22, with the enormous success of her brand new album, Red, home to the already hit songs, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," "I Knew You Were Trouble," "Begin Again" and, of course, "Red," she and boyfriend of three-and-some months, Conor Kennedy, 18, are calling it quits.
"They quietly parted ways a while ago," a friend of Swift's told Us Weekly of the country crooner and the son of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy, who tragically committed suicide earlier this year. "It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine."
And it seems that, with the success of Swift's Red, no one even noticed that she and Kennedy were no longer an item. "It's been over a month since they've seen each other," said the source. "With her promotion for Red, she has no time off until the end of the year."
Swift recently opened up about her complicated love life, which includes such famous casualties as Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Lautner — not to even mention the rumored ones. "I don't know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal and love from a normal place and live a normal life, but there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass, like [a] telescope lens, on everything that happens between me and anybody else," Swift told ABC's Katie Couric in an upcoming network primetime interview. "I don't really know that much about love, it turns out," she said.
So was Kennedy trouble? Are Swift and Kennedy never ever getting back together? What will happen now that Swift has to begin again? Regardless of the "insert song title" here situation, one thing is near certain: Kennedy will soon find himself the subject matter of song.
