The country starlet was getting rather cozy with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s son Conor on July 27. The two were said to be very ‘touchy-feely’ — read on for all the latest on this hot romance and EXCLUSIVE details!

Has Taylor Swift, 22, found love with a Kennedy? The singer reportedly rented a small house near the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Mass on July 27 and took a walk on the beach hand-in-hand with Conor Kennedy, 18. “She likes him because he is genuinely a fun and nice guy that doesn’t have all the baggage of being a celebrity but knows how to live like one and be in those circles,” a source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. 

The New York Post says that Taylor arrived around 5pm on July 27 and the couple was later spotted playing on a trampoline. After the fun evening, they made things more romantic as they walked to a house party and then held hands on the beach! But get this, the next morning they went sailing and then headed to church together!

Reports surfaced that Taylor was dating Patrick Schwarzenegger on July 4 when she was spotted in Massachusetts but Patrick was actually the matchmaker!

“Patrick was the one who hooked up Conor and Taylor. He obviously doesn’t need her money so there is never a weird issue on that. She has known the family for a while and as much celebrity as she brings to the situation, it’s not an issue whatsoever because the Kennedy’s on the Cape are what celebrity is all about,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“The relationship is in the start of things and everything seems to be going very well. They are taking things as they come and having tons of fun doing it. They are very comfortable,” our source confirms.

Something very interesting to point out is that Conor is the same age as Justin Bieber! Maybe Taylor thinks it’s okay to date a younger man because her bestie Selena Gomez, 20, is dating the Biebs, 18! But Taylor is four years older than Conor — do you think will be a problem?
