Taylor Swift fans have been eager to see whom the star would date next, as her lovelife is often the catalyst for her famous songs. Well, they don’t need to wait anymore. Taylor was photographed numerous times last weekend in various romantic embraces with her latest man – a step up on the social ladder from some of her past beaus – Connor Kennedy. Yes, he’s one of those Kennedys.
At first glance, it may not seem like the pair have much in common, as he is an 18-year-old Kennedy and she is a 22-year-old multiple Grammy Award-winning pop-country singer. But the two have both recently experienced some losses, which perhaps they bonded over.
Connor’s mother, Mary, tragically committed suicide two months ago after a long battle with depression. Taylor’s parents just announced last week that they were divorcing after 25 years of marriage. Both sets of circumstances are pretty hard to swallow, so perhaps Connor and Taylor just met one another at the right time – a time when they were both looking for love and for someone who could relate to what they were experiencing.
Taylor has been gradually linked to the Kennedys over the past few months. She was invited to the Sundance Film Festival screening of Rory Kennedy’s documentary, Ethel.
Taylor told Vogue magazine, “[Ethel] is one of my favorites because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody. You know, eleven kids, all these exotic animals on their property. I’ve read a lot about them.”
Taylor also spend the Fourth of July with the Kennedys, actually sparking an inaccurate rumor that she was dating Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Patrick, because they were photographed hugging and laughing together. It looks like the paparazzi guessed wrong about whom Taylor really had her sights on.
Taylor and Connor appeared very much on the fast track to love at their recent vacation at Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, as there wasn’t a photograph without them touching in some way. They were at each other’s sides all weekend, sailing with family, jumping on a trampoline, going out for pizza with friends, and even attending Sunday mass.
So what do the other Kennedys think of Connor’s new famous girlfriend? It appears she has someone in the family’s seal of approval at least, as it was announced in July that the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights will honor Taylor at a gala in December with its Ripple of Hope Award in recognition of her “commitment to social change.”
