Los Angeles: Singer Taylor Swift dumped boyfriend Conor Kennedy because she thought he was bad for her career.
Conor, son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and late Mary Nancy Richardson, belongs to the famous Kennedy political family.
According to nationalenquirer.com, the 22-year-old shattered Kennedy`s heart when she kicked him to the curb.
"Conor`s just devastated that Swift chose career over love," said a source.
"She`s making it appear Conor did the dumping because she didn`t want to come out looking like the villain. But the bottom line is that the poor kid is heartsick over the breakup. He believed they were headed to the altar," added the source.
Kennedy hasn`t got over the suicide of his mom, Mary, in May, and the entire family is concerned his broken heart will take a long time to heal.
"He`s trying to forget about Taylor. Meanwhile, she`s already put him out of her mind and is concentrating on selling her latest record," said the source.
Swift, 22, has previously dated actors Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and Cory Monteith.
