Their summer romance lasted barely three months.And now friends close to Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy are blaming the split on the singer getting too serious too fast.
Insiders says Taylor – who at 22 is four years older than Conor – freaked the 18-year-old by coming on too strong – and because of her apparent obsession with his famous family.
‘Conor’s just an 18-year-old kid and wasn’t ready for anything super serious,’ a pal told RadarOnline.com.
‘But Taylor is looking for her soulmate and it kind of freaked him out with how strong she came on,’ the insider went on.
The friend also said that Taylor was obsessed with the Kennedy family – and was living out a fairytale with Conor.
‘She was more obsessed with the idea of dating a Kennedy, than the actual Kennedy she was dating,’ the pal added.
A close friend of Swift’s is quoted as telling the website: ‘They quietly parted ways a while ago. It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They’re fine.’
According to the pal, Taylor has been flat out promoting her new album Red – and hasn’t seen Massachusetts-based Conor for more than a month.
