The couple that everyone thought would last forever is no more. According to US Weekly, Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy broke up over a month ago. The news, the timing of which is not at all suspicious, comes just two days after the release of Swift's record-setting new album, Red, and just three days after the start of her groundbreaking collaboration with Papa John, the pizza man.
Swift and Kennedy's whirlwind romance first made headlines this summer, when Swift basically invaded the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port, Mass. The two seemed like they had it all: youth (she's 22, and he's 18), talent (she's a pop superstar, and his great-uncle was president), and a penchant for crashing weddings. Alas, that wasn't enough to keep the two together; according to the report, which cites a close friend of Swift as a source, the two haven't seen each other in over a month.
Folks are already pointing fingers, either at Swift's absurdly busy schedule to promote Red or the fact that Conor is still a junior in high school(!). Whatever the reason, we here at Fuse are sad to add Conor to our list of Taylor's exes, but we have to admit we're pretty excited for the inevitable sailing-themed song about heartbreak.
