Tay­lor: The Ex She Can’t Get Over

Af­ter split­ting from Tom Hid­dle­ston ear­lier this month, Tay­lor Swift’s been turn­ing to an un­likely ex for sup­port…

Look (UK) - - NEWS STORY -

Fol­low­ing friend Gigi Ha­did and her boyfriend Zayn Ma­lik around at New York Fash­ion Week was hardly Tay­lor Swift’s best mo­ment. Look­ing for­lorn, de­spite rock­ing Gigi’s new Tommy Hil­figer col­lab from head to toe, it was clear she’s in breakover mode. But while Tay­lor, 26, has been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing some heartache over her split with beau-of-three-months Tom Hid­dle­ston, 35, she’s re­port­edly been lean­ing on a for­mer flame for sup­port. The ex in ques­tion? None other than Conor Kennedy, who she dated dur­ing the sum­mer of 2012.

‘Tay­lor had a long talk with Conor a few weeks ago, right af­ter she and Tom ended things,’ a pal tells Look. ‘Over the years they’ve texted and chat­ted ev­ery once in a while, but they hadn’t spo­ken like this.’

In­sid­ers tell us their chat brought back the in­tense feel­ings Tay had for Conor and it’s been him she’s been think­ing about rather than Tom.

‘Conor and Tay­lor were on the phone for al­most an hour,’ another friend re­veals. ‘Tay­lor was buzzing about it af­ter­wards. She still has ma­jor feel­ings for Conor and would love another chance with him.’

De­spite the short na­ture of their ro­mance, tay­lor and Conor, 22, grew very close and the singer even pur­chased a seven-bed­room home near to his fam­ily’s Cape Cod com­pound while they were to­gether. They re­port­edly split due to their dif­fer­ent sched­ules, while Tay­lor was crit­i­cised over their four-year age dif­fer­ence – at the time she was 22 and Conor was 18.

‘Un­like with a lot of her exes, there are no hard feel­ings be­tween Tay­lor and Conor – it was all left on very good terms,’ says a source. ‘The main rea­son they broke up was due to his age and that be­comes less im­por­tant with ev­ery year that passes.’

It’s a nice dis­trac­tion for Tay af­ter what’s been a dif­fi­cult time for her ro­man­ti­cally. Back in June, she split with Calvin Har­ris af­ter 15 months of dat­ing, just weeks be­fore she was snapped with Tom. And when it was leaked that Tay­lor had writ­ten the lyrics to his hit This Is What You Came For, the DJ ac­cused her of try­ing to tear him down while he seem­ingly re­leased tracks about their time to­gether – his lat­est, My Way, fea­tur­ing the lyrics: ‘You were the one thing in my way…’ Hmm, that’s got to hurt.

But while we’re sure Tay­lor’s turn­ing down the ra­dio at the mo­ment, at least she can fo­cus on Conor, who she’s plan­ning to meet up with very soon.

‘Conor’s in his third year at Har­vard and he’s told Tay­lor that once he grad­u­ates he’s plan­ning to move to New York and they can hang out,’ says a source. Of course, NYC is where Tay’s ren­o­vat­ing her penthouse apart­ment. And the singer is more than keen to spend time with him.

‘If she had her way, they’d be dat­ing again to­mor­row,’ adds our in­sider.

Oh Tay, give it a lit­tle more time – and get back to the stu­dio, we’re wait­ing for that al­bum!
