Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy are no longer a couple! We can’t say we’re surprised — we’ve been predicting the impending demise of this relationship ever since it first began just a few short months ago. The recent split may shed some light on the Punk’d star’s reluctance to talk about ex-boyfriends during yesterday’s appearance on Ellen.
While chatting with Ellen Degeneres about her ex-boyfriends the other day, Taylor Swift seemed really sad about how short-lived all of these relationships were. As Ellen showed off pictures of Taylor’s exes in a slideshow, the singer appeared visibly uncomfortable, repeatedly asking for the pictures to stop. “This makes me feel so bad about myself. Every time I come up here you put a different dude up on the screen. It just makes me really question what I stand for as a human being. There’s never been two guys on the screen two visits in a row. It’s sad.”
It looks like this reaction was foreshadowing today’s news of a Taylor-Conor breakup. A source tells Us Weekly that Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy “quietly parted ways a while ago.” So, unless “a while ago” means less than 24 hours, Taylor was already a single lady when she appeared on Ellen.
So, what was the cause of Taylor’s latest breakup? According to Us Weekly’s source, being in a long-distance relationship took its toll. “It’s been over a month since they’ve even seen each other. With her promotion for Red, she has no time off until the end of the year.”
Are you surprised at the news of Taylor and Conor’s breakup? And do you think that it will wind up in one of Taylor’s future songs? Leave a comment below and tell us what you think!
