It was fun while it lasted, but now it appears that the whirlwind romance between Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy is over.  A friend of Taylor's confirms to US Weekly magazine that the two lovebirds have broken up.

During the couple's brief romance, the Kennedy clan came to love Taylor, with matriarch Ethel Kennedy -- the inspiration for a song on Red -- even saying that she'd be happy to see her grandson married to the superstar singer.
