Taylor Swift Splits From Boyfriend Conor Kennedy (REPORT)
Taylor Swift may have new inspiration for her next album.
The country star has reportedly split from boyfriend Conor Kennedy after dating him for almost four months. According to Us magazine, the singer-songwriter -- whose latest breakup anthem is "We are Never Ever Getting Back Together" -- “quietly parted ways a while ago” with Kennedy. The purported reason: Swift’s grueling schedule.
The 22-year-old is currently on a press tour to promote her new album, Red, which is already enjoying record-breaking sales and critical acclaim after its release just this week.
Swift and Kennedy's much-documented romance was first reported when the singer was spotted with the 18-year-old high school senior at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannisport, MA, in July. Conor is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy.John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal and Joe Jonas -- and many of them have become the subject of her hit songs. In fact, as Celebuzz reported this week, Swift's Red album features a slew of new tunes that may be inspired by those A-listers -- and many others.
If the breakup reports are true, Swift is already set to "Begin Again": she premiered the video for that single on Oct. 24; it shows the six-time Grammy winner looking for love in Paris.
Reps for Swift have not returned requests for comment at this time.
