Taylor Swift sells house near Kennedy compound for nearly $1 million profit
It looks like Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy really are never ever getting back together.
But this time the pop princess got more out of the breakup than just a hit single: She turned a hefty profit by flipping a house she bought near her ex's famous family.
The Realtor who sold the seven-bedroom Cape Code style house to Swift in August told E! News that the songstress bought the property through her manager for $4.8 million, had a few renovations done and sold it seven months later for just under $5.7 million.
Swift purchased the house near the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Mass., while dating the Bedford-based eldest son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Richardson Kennedy. The house was reportedly right across the street from Conor's grandma, Ethel Kennedy, who spoke highly of Swift while the short-lived relationship was in full swing.
The couple — affectionately dubbed "Caylor" by fans — were first spotted together in July sharring lunch at Marcella's Pizza in downtown Mount Kisco. Since splitting in October, Swift has dated and broken up with at least one boy bander and Kennedy was arrested in an anti-fracking protest at the White House.
Swift got defensive when asked about her real estate purchase in the March issue of Vanity Fair (yes, the same interview in which she suggested Amy Poehler and Tina Fey should burn in hell for making a quip about her serial dating). "People say that about me, that I apparently buy houses near every boy I like — that’s a thing that I apparently do," Swift told Vanity Fair. "If I like you, I will apparently buy up the real estate market just to freak you out so you leave me.”
