Taylor Swift and her young lover Conor Kennedy are still going strong, his family says it’s probably because Taylor is helping him cope with his late mother Mary Kennedy’s suicide.
“Whatever makes Conor happy makes me happy,” Conor’s half-sister Kathleen Kennedy told <em>New York Magazine</em>, “I love Taylor, they’re pretty cute together.”
Conor’s cousin Christopher Lawford also told the mag that if Taylor is helping him get over his mom’s recent death, then he is all for their relationship.
“Whatever Conor has to do to comfort himself, he should do it as long as they are both happy and healthy…and left alone.”
I don’t think anyone in the Kennedy family is NOT okay with Taylor Swift, I mean, what’s not to like, she’s like the dandelion of the pop-star genre.
Taylor already won over the Kennedy matriarch. Over the summer, Conor’s grandmother Ethel Kennedy said “we should be so lucky” when asked if Taylor would be joining the Kennedy clan one day.
Actually, Taylor reportedly asked Ethel for permission to date Kennedy. I guess when you’re older than your man, the woman has to do the asking?
“When she and Conor first got together, Taylor couldn’t have been more respectful [to Ethel],” a source told the <em>New York Daily News</em>.
Also, reports that Taylor bought a house in Hyannis Port right by the Kennedy compound was totally true. This is as close to “moving in” as Taylor’s gonna get with her high-school boyfriend.
