Taylor Swift's Kennedy Obsession

Taylor Swift's long obsession with the Kennedy clan appears to be playing out in real life as she's dating a Kennedy and reportedly considering buying a home next door to their compound. INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.

You've probably heard that country cutie Taylor Swift is dating a Kennedy, but did you know that she's been obsessed with all things Kennedy since she was a kid?

Swift has read The Kennedy Women, all 900 pages—she's also watched just about every documentary ever done on America's royal family.

She once told Vogue magazine about her admiration for Ethel Kennedy saying, "She is one of my favorites because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody."

And now there's word that Swift is not only dating Bobby Kennedy Jr.'s son Conor, she's so taken with the Kennedy lifestyle on Cape Cod, she's even thinking of buying a $4 million beach house next door to the Kennedy compound.  

Asked what she thought of her grandson dating Taylor Swift, family matriarch Ethel Kennedy reportedly responded, "We should be so lucky."

Earlier in the summer, there were reports that Swift was dating yet another Kennedy cousin, Arnold Schwarzeneggar and Maria Shiver's son, Patrick.

18-year-old Conor's new relationship with the 22-year-old Swift is a bright spot in what's been a terrible year for him. His mother Mary committed suicide in May.
