taylor-swift-230.jpgAfter just a few months of dating, Taylor Swift, 22, and Conor Kennedy, 18, have broken up, a close friend of the singer confirms to Us Weekly.

"They quietly parted ways a while ago," the source says. "It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine. 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."

But didn't she just reportedly buy a house in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, right across the street from Conor's grandmother Ethel?! That could be incredibly awkward ... but maybe it'll give her some good songwriting material?

Swift's other exes include John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Cory Monteith.
