Taylor Breaks Up With Yet Another Guy Yep, it's over between Swift and Conor Kennedy By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Oct 25, 2012 1:19 PM CDT 16 comments Comments Taylor Swift performs on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012 in New York. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP) (Newser) – Prepare to spend your Thursday evening sobbing into a bowl of Rocky Road, because we are here to tell you that the epic Taylor Swift-Conor Kennedy romance has come to an end. Perhaps because she was cheating on him with his cousin? Not so; a friend insists to Us that "it was just a distance thing. No hard feelings." And it happened "a while ago"—they haven't seen each other in more than a month—which is kinda sad, considering rumors of their relationship cropped up not even three months ago. Even so, the relationship apparently lasted long enough for Taylor to form such a strong bond with Ethel Kennedy that Taylor dedicated a song to Ethel on her new album.
