Taylor Swift has split from Conor Kennedy, it emerged on Thursday.
After a whirlwind romance over the past few months, the young pair have gone their separate ways, Us Weekly reports.
A close friend of Swift's is quoted as telling the website: 'They quietly parted ways a while ago. It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine.'
According to the pal, 22-year-old Taylor has been flat out promoting her new album Red - and hasn't seen Massachusetts-based Conor, 18, for more than a month.
Her album was released this week to critical acclaim and huge sales, and includes her new hit track We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.
The source added: 'It's been over a month since they've even seen each other. With her promotion for Red, she has no time off until the end of the year.'
Taylor and Connor - the son of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy - were first spotted together at the Kennedy family home in Hyannisport in July.
The six-time Grammy winner often uses her ex boyfriends as inspiration for her music, including her track Dear John which was seen as a very blatant open attack on John Mayer
Her other past flames include Twilight star Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and Cory Monteith.
During an upcoming appearance on the Ellen DeGenres Show, Taylor is challenged to take part in a game involving her famous exes.
DeGeneres hands Taylor a bell and asks her to ring it whenever a picture of someone she has dated who inspired her song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together flashes up on screen.
But Taylor doesn't want to play ball.
'This is the one thing that I have, the one shred of dignity that I have,' she protests, saying she rather keeps the identity of people she has dated to herself.
Ellen tries to keep the game going, as pictures from Danny DeVito, Justin Timberlake and Mayer flash up.
Taylor confirms she has not dated DeVito or Timberlake, but keeps her lips sealed on some of ther others.
'Stop it, stop it, stop!' says Swift, adding: 'This makes me feel so bad about myself. Every time I come up here you put like a different dude up on the screen.
'It just makes me really question like what I stand for as a human being. There's never been two guys on the screen two visits in a row. It's sad.'
