Perhaps you’ve heard that Taylor Swift is dating a Kennedy? Yes, the 22-year-old is now knocking boots (allegedly) with 18-year-old Conor Kennedy, whose mother committed suicide just a few short months ago.
Now, the feminist in me is keeping commentary on THAT pairing in check, because SURE 22 is kind of old when you’re talking about a BARELY LEGAL teen, but HEY! YOUNG LOVE, and stuff.
N E WAY.
The couple have been hanging out in the Hamptons and Westchester, NY, and Cape Cod, MA, as rich people in New England are wont to do. Taylor has been embraced by the family and was even rumored to have purchased a property that the Kennedy family was restricted from buying…or something…and then selling it to them.
WHITE RICHIES, AMIRITE?!
All this Kennedy-Swift love, however, began to run thin this past weekend when there was a family wedding. Rumors were flying that Taylor had never, in fact, been invited to the event, but that maybe Conor had. Conor, however, being an 18-year-old KID, didn’t RSVP to the event until an HOUR before the nuptials when he TEXTED the mother of the bride.
When the pair showed up, the MotB was understandably concerned that having the famous Swift at the wedding would take attention away from the newlyweds themselves. She asked Swift and her boy toy to leave—TWICE—but apparently they didn’t. A few days after the wedding, when these rumors first surfaced, Taylor’s rep immediately shot them down. End of story, right?
ENTER KATHIE LEE GIFFORD.
Well. Little did Taylor’s rep know that the stepmother of the mother of the bride (you follow?) was Kathie Lee, who was ALSO in attendance that day. And she confirmed, on her daily drunken morning show, that Taylor was confronted and asked to leave, but merely lingered in the hallway instead.
HOLY DRAMZ, you guys.
In the end, this is obviously a faux pas on Conor’s behalf, but dude is only 18, right? Did Taylor really think this would be a good idea? I dunno…maybe she’s looking to land a role in the next Wedding Crashers flick.
(I give the couple a few more months.)
