Relive Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy’s Whirlwind Romance: Photos

Young love! Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy had a whirlwind romance worthy of a love song — which the musician seemingly documented in her hit “Begin Again.”
The Grammy winner was first linked to Kennedy in the summer of 2012 after she was spotted spending time with the iconic family in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts over the 4th of July.
Swift, who has been vocal about her love for the family over the years, was introduced to Conor after connecting with his aunt Rory Kennedy a year prior.
The “Lover” singer was contacted by Rory for concert tickets in 2011, which is what started her friendship with the family. Swift later attended Sundance Film Festival’s January 2012 screening of Ethel, which is Rory’s HBO documentary about her mom and Conor’s grandmother, Ethel Kennedy.
“She’s a great friend of all of ours,” Rory told reporters during the Television Critics Association panel in August 2012 after she invited Swift to visit the family’s compound one month prior. “She’s awesome, and we love her.”
Ethel noted at the time that she wasn’t the Conor and the “Evermore” singer’s matchmaker, but she did comment on whether she could see Swift becoming a Kennedy down the line. “We should be so lucky,” the Kennedy matriarch told reporters at the TCA event.

After initially being linked to Conor’s cousin Patrick Schwarzenegger over the American holiday, the “Exile” songstress was spotted spending time with Conor on several occasions during the month of July, before Us Weekly confirmed their romance the following month.
Following the death of his mother, Mary Kennedy, who died by suicide in May 2012, Swift has been a “real shoulder to cry on,” a source told Us in August 2012, noting that the country-turned-pop singer is “really smitten” with Conor.
“She’s obsessed with the family,” a second source exclusively told Us of Swift in August 2012.
The twosome’s romance, however, was short lived with them parting ways “quietly” in September of that year, according to an insider.
“It was just a distance thing,” the source told Us in October 2012 of the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer and the then-high school senior. “No hard feelings. They’re fine.”

Jacqueline Avant, wife of music exec Clarence Avant, shot and killed in home robbery

Police suggested Avant may have been targeted.”I don’t think it’s a random attack, but I can’t speculate on that right now,” Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) Chief Mark Stainbrook said at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.The suspect or suspects are at large and the motive is still unknown, Stainbrook said. An investigation is ongoing.Stainbrook also read a statement shared by the Avant family.”Jacqueline was an amazing woman, wife, mother, philanthropist, and a 55-year resident of Beverly Hills, who has made an immeasurable positive contribution and impact on the arts community,” said Stainbrook. “She will be missed by her family, friends, and all of the people she has helped throughout her amazing life.”The Avants married in 1967 and had two children together. Clarence Avant was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. He was the subject of the 2019 documentary “The Black Godfather,” which looked at his political influence, musical legacy and work with musicians like Bill Withers and Babyface. After news of her death, leaders in the Los Angeles community paid tribute to Avant.”I’m heartbroken by this morning’s news of the tragic and shocking murder of Mrs. Jacqueline Avant,” Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA) said in a statement. “Mrs. Avant was a force of compassion and empowerment locally and nationally for decades, as well as a model of service and giving back to those who needed it most.” “Cookie and I are absolutely devastated at the loss of one of our closest friends Jackie Avant,” Magic Johnson tweeted. “This is the saddest day in our lives.”CNN’s Sarah Moon contributed to this story.
