The blossoming romance between Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy — a country-pop-meets-Camelot-family union that gave us many cute pictures of the pair kissing and a super-overblown story about them crashing a wedding — has reportedly ended.
Us Weekly and Gossip Cop have reported that Swift, 22, and Kennedy, an 18-year-old high school senior, broke up on good terms, largely because their busy schedules were keeping them apart. Both outlets have cited unnamed sources; Us says it got its information from a close friend of Swift’s, who said that the two “quietly parted ways a while ago” and that it was “a distance thing.” Celebritology reached out to Swift’s publicist for further confirmation but has not received a response.
This news, naturally, raises several questions.
Are Swift and Kennedy ever ever ever getting back together? Like, ever?
Is it possible that the friend who spilled all this info to Us Weekly was actually just Jake Gyllenhaal making a prank phone call while using his falsetto voice?
Who will Swift date next? (One Celebritology reader suggested in today’s live chat that perhaps she should hook up with Robert Pattinson if/when he breaks up with Kristen Stewart. The Internet obviously needs this to happen RIGHT NOW.)
And: When will the album about this relationship be released? Because that’s obviously a foregone conclusion, right?
