Can you guess who Taylor Swift‘s next song will be about? We’re thinking maybe Conor Kennedy – Us Weekly is reporting that the high school senior and the ‘State Of Grace’ singer have broken up.
“They quietly parted ways a while ago,” a close friend of Taylor‘s confirms. “It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They’re fine.” According to the source, the breakup may partly be due to Taylor‘s intensive work schedule for her new album, ‘Red’ that was just released this week with record-breaking sales.
“It’s been over a month since they’ve even seen each other,” the friend says of the 22-year-old and her 18-year-old beau. “With her promotion for Red, she has no time off until the end of the year.”
Then there were the rumors that the romance didn’t have the full support of Conor‘s family – especially his dad Robert. Tensions apparently flared when the couple planned to travel together to Paris for a video shoot for Taylor’s album and Robert wouldn’t allow it.
According to the Daily Mail, Robert objected because of the imposition on his son’s schoolwork. “Trouble started when Conor went back to school in Deerfield, Mass, a few weeks ago,” their source says. “Taylor not only visited him for a romantic weekend, she started texting, phoning, and e-mailing love notes 24/7.”
The story goes on to say that Robert was infuriated with Taylor‘s plans. “They’re totally infatuated, and Robert went nuts when he heard Taylor will send her private plane to pick Conor up and bring him to wherever she is over the next six weeks.”
