OK, is this for real? We all know Taylor Swift has been insinuating herself into the Kennedy lifestyle by dating Conor Kennedy, son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his late wife, Mary … but this has definitely gone too far too fast. The country star has reportedly snapped up a seven-bedroom waterfront estate across the street from Ethel Kennedy’s Hyannis Port, Cape Cod, spread — with cash.
While some reports claim that the storied Kennedy clan adores the 18-year-old scion’s new gal pal, an insider tells In Touch magazine that, “There has been a lot of talk in the Kennedy family about Taylor, and people are not happy.”
Especially considering Conor is still recovering from his mother’s suicide in May.
Though Ethel is said to indeed be enamored of her grandson’s beau, other relatives believe Taylor “manipulated her way into the Kennedys,” per the source.
Another insider frets, “They feel that if he falls for her, she may break his heart.”
A mere 41 days after they married — and three days after he was arrested after a domestic dispute — Evelyn Lozada has filed for divorce from football star hubby Chad “formerly Ochocinco” Johnson.
The couple’s VH1 “Basketball Wives” spinoff, “Ocho and Ev,” was canceled after news of the incident, which saw the recently cut NFL player arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence.
“It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles,” Evelyn declared in a statement just before her filing. “Domestic violence is not OK, and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.”
His new role couldn’t have been better timed: Robert Pattinson is headed Down Under to shoot an indie flick. And coincidentally, it reportedly got financing the day those infamous pictures of Kristen Stewart’s unfaithful makeout session with Rupert Sanders hit the wires.
“Rob wants to get away for a while, and is looking forward to filming in the desert in Australia,” a source told the New York Post. “He needs some space.”
Wasn’t he already getting space on Reese Witherspoon’s ranch? How much more does he need?
