For the last week or so Taylor Swift has been getting a lot of grief over the fact that she had purchased a home across the road from her boyfriend's grandmother Ethel Kennedy.
Now comes word that that grief may have been wrongly placed because Taylor may not have even bought the Hyannis Port mansion.
The original report claiming that Taylor had purchased the $4.9 million home had come from People.com and was complete with a quote from a real estate lady who said Taylor had gotten a great deal on the home. However, now comes word from Radar Online who spoke to the real estate agent who reportedly sold the house and he says the property was purchased by a hedge fund manager from New York and that Taylor had no part in it.
However, it turns out that a New York hedge fund manager signed a contract for the house and Swift was never involved, says the real estate agency that DID sell the home!
Paul Grover of Robert Paul Properties revealed the buyer signed the contract for the property at 27 Marchant Ave, Hyannis Port, but the sale isn’t closed yet.
So now we have two dueling gossip reports from two usually reliable sources. I guess you could do eenie meenie miney mo and have a 50/50 shot of picking which is the right one.
In other Taylor and Conor Kennedy news, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Taylor accompanied Conor and some other Kennedy family members to Conor's mom's gravesite last weekend. Conor's mom committed suicide a couple of months ago.
On a side note, is anyone else a little sad that The Wall Street Journal actually reports on Taylor Swift dating news?
