(Newser) – Just when you thought Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy were going to skip off into the sunset together come not one but two rumors that Swift has been stepping out on her young man. Star magazine reports that Swift had the nerve to cheat on Kennedy with his cousin, Patrick Schwarzenegger, according to Radar. (Avid Swift-watchers will recall that Patrick was her first rumored love, before reports switched to Conor.) Sources say Taylor and Patrick were making out at a Kennedy family event, and that the family now considers her a "hanger-on" and "despises" her.

"Taylor and Patrick weren't kissing out in the open, but she wasn't being as subtle as she thought she was," the source says. "The previous day, she was all over Conor, so she hooked up with two cousins on consecutive nights!" Making matters worse, the Sun reports that Swift invited one of the members of UK boy band One Direction to dinner—an "intimate" dinner, mind you—over the weekend while she was in town promoting her new album. But, though the dinner was booked, it was ultimately canceled after the newspaper got word of it.
