What rhymes with Kennedy? An admitted fan of the famous clan, Taylor Swift lived out her Camelot fantasy when she began dating Conor Kennedy in July. It was not a relationship with staying power. She was a 22-year-old Grammy-winning superstar; he was an 18-year-old boarding school student still mourning the suicide of his mom.
Yet they embraced the summer romance by kissing and cuddling their way around Hyannis Port, Mass., and Swift went all-in by shelling out an estimated $4.5 million for a mansion across from the Kennedy compound.
But she was often on the defensive during the short-lived romance, whether denying kidnapping him from school for a little snuggle-time or crashing his cousin's wedding. By October, the romance was kaput (except for the inevitable catchy ditties it will inspire), and Swift was soon seen in the company of One Direction pretty boy Harry Styles.
