There are definitely drawbacks to dating a pop star like the internationally famous Taylor Swift — the paparazzi, the possibility of ending up as the chorus of a hit song — but there are also, it seems, some serious perks.
The 18-year-old Kennedy, who will be a senior at Massachusetts’ prestigious Deerfield Academy in the fall, and the 22-year-old Swift have only been dating since July, but have spent much of their time hanging around Hyannis Port, Ma., even visiting the grave of Kennedy’s mother together.
But Swift left Massachusetts last week in the wake of a wedding crashing scandal to return to Nashville to promote her new single, ‘”We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and, a source close to the couple said, she “missed Conor so much” that she sent her own private jet to pick him up.
“He’s been with her ever since,” the source told the New York Post’s Page Six, and “his family don’t know when he will be back.”
For her part, a source close to Swift told Us Weekly that Swift has already fallen hard for her younger man, despite their brief courtship.
“”She’s head over heels,” the insider said. “[Conor’s] a smart, sensitive guy.”
Despite their age, and their short relationship, the Kennedy source seemed to think that a private plane ride was only the beginning.
“”Things have become so serious between them so fast that no-one in [Conor’s family home at] Hyannis Port would be surprised if they eloped.”
That would certainly have Swift, who is known for her break-up songs, singing a new tune.
