Taylor Swift Refused to Leave a Kennedy Wedding When Asked, Claims Bride's Mother
That’s the scenario described by the bride’s mother, Victoria Gifford Kennedy. In fact, the wife of the late Michael Kennedy says the 22-year-old country star – who began dating Conor Kennedy this summer – “looked right past her” when she asked Swift to make a, well, swift exit on Saturday.
What exactly happened?
"[Conor and Taylor] texted me an hour before the wedding and asked if they could come,” Victoria, who was celebrating the marriage of her daughter Kyle, told the Boston Globe. “I responded with a very clear, ‘Please do not come.' They came anyway.”
The reason for her unwelcoming attitude? Victoria apparently feared the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer's presence would detract from her daughter’s big day. And in fact, it did.
According to the Globe, there was a mild commotion in the lobby of the Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel when 18-year-old Conor and Swift arrived, with fans asking for pictures and autographs. And that made Victoria take action.
“I personally went up to Ms. Swift, whose entrance distracted the entire event, politely introduced myself to her, and asked her as nicely as I could to leave,” she said. “It was like talking to a ghost. She seemed to look right past me."
Swift’s spokesperon, meanwhile, said: "Taylor was invited to the wedding and the bride thanked her profusely for being there."
That’s partly right. Vicki admitted that Conor was invited to the wedding but never RSVP’d.
