Three months after their whiirlwind romance, singer songwriter, Taylor Swift, and Conor Kennedy, have broken up, according to US Weekly Magazine.

A friend told the magazine the young lovebirds parted aways about a month ago.

"They quietly parted ways a while ago.

"It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine," the source said.

She cited Swift's busy schedule, including the promotion of her new album, Red, for the break-up.

The couple were first spotted together in July, two months after Conor's mother was found hanged in the family home. Swift was seen at the Kennedy family's Cape Cod estate over the summer, and even accompanied Conor to visit his mother's grave.

Then in August, People reported that Swift, who at the time was said to be "swept off her feet by Conor" spent $5 million on a Cape Cod mansion near the home of Ethel Kennedy, Conor's grandmother. 

But if reports are correct, the fairytale is over.

The New York Daily News reported Swift's new album, "Red," includes numerous songs about her previous exes - Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas and John Mayer.

Could this latest split provide her with more song-writing fodder.
