Taylor Swift And Conor Kennedy Never, Ever, Ever Getting Back Together?

Taylor Swift And Conor Kennedy Never, Ever, Ever Getting Back TogetherLooks like Taylor Swift will have some fresh material for her next album! The pop star, 22, and beau Conor Kennedy, 18, are over, sources confirm to PEOPLE. The pair, who enjoyed a whirlwind summer romance frolicking through Hyannis Port, Mass., showing several public displays of affection, split a while ago.

‘She ended it’

“His friends have said it’s over,” says a source at his school, the Deerfield Academy, adding, “I have the feeling she ended it.”

It’s a bummer since Swift even got the stamp of approval from Conor’s grandma, Ethel Kennedy, who called the starlet, “spectacular.” When you get closer to your beau’s family, it becomes even more of a bummer than it already is.


‘Busy schedule’

In August, a source told PEOPLE Swift was “swept off her feet” by her then-boyfriend. But Swift’s busy schedule could have made things difficult. She’s currently promoting her new album, Red, performing at the Country Music Awards Thursday, will co-host the Grammy nomination concert, and just announced a 2013 tour.

Granting that it was a whirlwind summer romance, do you think Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy are never, ever, ever getting back together? Do you think this story will make it to Swift’s next album? Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions with us via the comment box below!

‘Bachelorette’ Emily Maynard Breaks Off Engagement With Jef Holm

'Bachelorette' Emily Maynard Breaks Off Engagement With Jef HolmDespite a happy ending on The Bachelorette finale in July and the hope of building a life and a family together, Emily Maynard and her fiancé Jef Holm have ended their engagement. The pair open up about the split in exclusive statements to PEOPLE:

‘The love between us was so real’

“I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways,” Maynard says. “It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision. As you know, at first I wasn’t sure that I should even be The Bachelorette, but I am a hopeless romantic and I do believe in the show. I have no regrets because I did find love and shared an incredible journey with a really special person – and you know what, we tried our best because the love between us was so real.


And Holm tells PEOPLE:

“Meeting Emily on The Bachelorette was an incredible experience, we’ve had quite the journey. I’ve never loved someone so much in my whole life, Emily is the best person and mom I have ever met. She opened up her world to me and I fell in love with her, [her daughter] Ricki, her family and the Hendricks.

‘Tried our hardest’

“Emily and I are great friends and I hope we can continue to be friends forever. Everyone wants a salacious story to break, but the truth is we are just two people who fell in love and tried our hardest to make it work. I will always love her.”

Holm, who relocated to Charlotte last month, has been spending more time in Los Angeles promoting his company, People Water. Maynard, meanwhile, has been going about her life quietly with daughter Ricki, 7, in Charlotte.

Katie Holmes Divorces Tom Cruise — Scientology To Blame?

Last week, Tom Cruise took daughter Suri and son Connor to an awards ceremony in New York. Meanwhile, Katie Holmes was on the other side of the planet in Taiwan. The official reason was to promote an ice skating event. Now that Holmes filed for divorce on Friday, according to People, Holmes’ Taiwan trip seems more like a warning sign than anything else.

In recent months, the couple was rarely photographed together, even when the two were in the same city. What has been spotlighted, particularly in the Daily Mail, is Holmes’ recent style. The usually impeccably dressed actress has been photographed looking like, well, a down-to-earth mom. Untucked button-downs, jeans, loosely wet knotted hair — none of which would raise alarm bells unless you were a superstar known for a meticulously managed makeover since her marriage began more than five years ago.


One stressor on the relationship could stem from Cruise’s devotion to Scientology — it’s long been blamed for his split from Nicole Kidman – and the serious allegations of his mistreatment of lower-ranked members of the religious group, as this New Yorker article pointed out.

If Holmes thought her marriage to a superstar would be a boon to her career, she was wrong. Since their union began about six years ago, her professional life has taken a backseat to being a wife and mother. That may have been her choosing, but a recent interview with Cruise in Playboy suggests an unsettled Holmes, who wanted more from her career than just being known as a superstar’s wife.

It’s something Cruise’s second ex-wife, Nicole Kidman, was all too familiar with. When asked in an interview with Vanity Fair whether women could have both marriage and career, she said of her marriage to Cruise: “I think I had to choose. I think (the marriage) would have come down to it. I suppose it wasn’t meant to be.”

What do you think is the real reason why Katie Holmes decided to file for divorce from Tom Cruise? Ladies, would YOU date Tom Cruise despite all the Scientology stuff?

A Closer Look At Johnny Depp’s Single Life

He just announced his split from longtime love Vanessa Paradis, but Johnny Depp has been maintaining a bachelor’s lifestyle for a while.

Since the actor, 49, and Paradis, 39, began leading separate lives more than a year ago – both reside primarily in L.A. but haven’t necessarily stayed under the same roof for some time – Depp has been regularly partying with rocker Marilyn Manson, spending late nights at the singer’s Hollywood-area home and even jamming on guitar at an April Manson concert.

Depp has also been busy with work, shooting Disney’s mega-budget The Lone Ranger in Albuquerque, N.M., and Creede, Colo. But he’s shown little interest in socializing off-set: When he’s not filming, Depp routinely commutes back to L.A. by private plane, sometimes several times a week. The couple’s children, Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 9, are enrolled in school in Los Angeles.


As the 14-year relationship between Depp and Paradis began to crumble publicly – the embattled couple had not appeared together on a red carpet for two years – rumors swirled linking the actor to various other women. Among them: model-actress Amber Heard, who appeared with Depp in 2011′s The Rum Diary and was was spotted boarding a private plane with Depp to Las Vegas earlier this year. But Heard, who has said she’s bisexual, also brought along her longtime girlfriend, artist Tasya van Ree.

Tabloid reports also linked Depp to his Dark Shadows costar Eva Green, as well as to his longtime publicist Robin Baum, who was a fixture during his globetrotting promotional duties for Dark Shadows.

Now that he is officially single, hot ladies will sure be throwing themselves at him. Who do you think will be Johnny’s best new match?

Johnny Depp And Vanessa Paradis Call It Quits After 14 Years

It’s official: Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have split after 14 years together. The couple “have amicably separated,” Depp’s publicist said in a statement released to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday.

As PEOPLE has reported, the two drifted into living separate lives after moving to Los Angeles from France. They haven’t appeared together on a red carpet in a year. The couple have two children together: Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 9.

A longtime resident of Plan-de-la-Tour in southern France, Depp recently told French magazine VSD that living in France with Paradis and their kids “has given me everything. A marvelous family and also an equilibrium which I missed enormously.”


And in 2010, Paradis gushed to the U.K. edition of Marie Claire about her man: ”I could make an endless list of all the things I admire about him,” she said. “We understand that, if we want our relationship to continue, we must give each other space, allow each other to go off on our own, and trust each other. Not everyone is lucky enough to be given space and trust.”

In another interview, Paradis explained why the pair never felt the need to marry: ”I love the romance of ‘let’s get married,’ but then, when you have it so perfect … I mean, I’m more married than anybody can be – we have two kids. Maybe one day, but it’s something I can really do without,” Paradis once told Elle.

Do you think Depp and Paradis are indeed better off without each other? What do you think is the root cause of their separation?

J.Lo’s Generous Gift For Beau’s 25th Birthday

No doubt about it: 25 is a big birthday. And when you’re Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend, prepare for a serious celebration.

According to People magazine, the superstar bought her beau, Casper Smart, a customized white Dodge Ram pick-up truck. A source told the magazine, “Jennifer had planned a fun day to celebrate Casper’s birthday, adding, she “knew that Casper really wanted a truck, and Casper was very excited about the generous gift.”


With a gift like that, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be his best birthday yet. Smart immediately made use of the practical present by driving himself and Lopez to his birthday dinner at an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood, where they were joined by friends. A photo of the two in Casper’s new ride shows the couple all smiles.

Comments on the Web were mixed about J. Lo’s generosity. While one fan worried, “Honestly, doesn’t she want a man who doesn’t depend on her money. She’s buying him.” “It was very nice for her to buy the current beau a truck.” Another applauded, “good for her for doing what she wants.” Another agreed, “She is HAPPY and thats what matters.”

The ”American Idol” judge was first spotted with the back-up dancer in the fall of last year, after her split with husband Marc Anthony.
