For the girl that sings “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” it seemed Conor was just another ex for a future song, but rumors circulating right now suggest Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy never actually broke up in the first place; rather, they simply staged the breakup.
Show Biz Spy spoke with a source who said “Taylor and Conor are pretending to everyone that they’ve split up, and so far they’ve done a really good job of convincing friends – and even the press – that it’s true.”
So why fake the split?
Apparently Conor’s dad Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and family want Conor to focus on finishing high school and getting into a prestigious college.
“The family feared Taylor’s jet-set lifestyle would divert his focus from education,” added the source, “and were literally worried sick the couple might even elope.”
They may not be planning to elope anytime soon, but if this information is correct, they are planning a “secret romantic rendezvous” when Conor goes on school break.
