Country star Taylor Swift has sparked rumours of a blossoming new romance with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s son Conor after they were spotted holding hands over the weekend.
The Love Story hitmaker, 22, recently spent America's Independence Day holiday at the Kennedy family compound in Massachusetts, where she was snapped hanging out with her longtime friend, Arnold Schwarzenegger's teenage son Patrick, and his relatives.
Swift returned to the Kennedy home on Friday for the second time in just one month, and photos of her latest visit appear to show the blonde beauty actually has her eye on Conor Kennedy.
The singer was snapped sharing a rare moment of affection with the 18 year old as they enjoyed a bite of pizza, while another shows Swift placing her hand on the small of his back.
The couple also enjoyed a day of sailing, and in separate pictures, Conor is shown wrapping his arm tightly around the Grammy winner's waist as they exit the boating dock.
The budding relationship will be a welcome distraction for Conor, who has had a rough year - he lost his mum Mary in May and his aunt Kerry was arrested in early July amid allegations she was driving while impaired by drugs.
