Taylor Swift buys mansion near Kennedy compound to be closer to boyfriend, reports say
Taylor Swift is reportedly so smitten with her 18-year-old Kennedy boyfriend that she purchased a home next door to his family.
According to several reports, Swift, 22, has been dating Conor Kennedy, son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy. And now the songstress has reportedly purchased an oceanfront mansion in the Kennedy compound on Cape Cod.
The 4,400-square-foot home in Hyannis Port has reportedly been on the market for some time before Swift snatched it up for $.4.9 million.

A local realtor tells People magazine that the 13-room home overlooks the Nantucket Sound and boasts seven bedrooms and five bathrooms.
“It’s in a beautiful location and right across the street from Conor and the Kennedys,” the realtor told the magazine. “It’s a beautiful home. She got a nice home, paid fair price. The house was on the market for two to four years.”
And it’s not just Conor Kennedy who appears to be smitten with Swift. Ethel Kennedy, 84, told reporters that the family “should be so lucky” to welcome Taylor into the mix and daughter Rory has also called the singer “a great friend of all of ours.”
A rep for Swift did not respond to Fox411’s inquiry about the purchase of the home.
