With her new album, Red, already on its way to selling one million copies in its first week, Taylor Swift is already hard at work on her next album, by which I mean she broke up with Conor Kennedy. (A bit of a low blow, but when all your songs are about meanie ex-boyfriends … well, you can only dangle the low-hanging fruit for so long before I take a bite.) Us Weekly reports …

“They quietly parted ways a while ago,” the friend explains of the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” crooner, 22, and the high school senior, 18. “It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They’re fine.” First spotted with the six-time Grammy winner at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannisport, MA in July, Conor is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy. But despite Swift’s speedy summertime bond with her new man and his brood, the romance had to take a backseat to Swift’s work duties. (Her new album, Red, was just released this week with record-breaking sales and widespread critical acclaim.) “It’s been over a month since they’ve even seen each other,” the friend explains. “With her promotion for Red, she has no time off until the end of the year.”

In all fairness, Conor is barely a legal adult and Taylor has the emotional maturity of a tween, so honestly, it’s not like these two were going to be life-long soulmates or anything. Still, pretty sad I suppose but now Taylor will have plenty of new material to work with, Conor better watch out!
