(BOSTON) — Taylor Swift’s camp is shooting down reports that she crashed the wedding of Conor Kennedy’s cousin Kyle Kennedy last weekend in Boston.
Conor Kennedy and Swift were asked not to come to the wedding Saturday because Taylor’s presence would take attention away from the bride, Kyle’s mother, Victoria Gifford Kennedy, told the Boston Herald.
Taylor’s rep denies those claims, however, and says Swift not only was invited to the wedding, but that the bride actually thanked Swift for being there.
For her part, Gifford Kennedy says Conor Kennedy was invited to the ceremony, but he did not send an RSVP to the event. When the couple texted an hour before the ceremony was to start, Gifford Kennedy said she responded, clearly asking them not to come.
When they showed up at the reception, Swift’s entrance reportedly caused a big stir.
“I personally went up to Ms. Swift, whose entrance distracted the entire event, politely introduced myself to her, and asked her as nicely as I could to leave. It was like talking to a ghost. She seemed to look right past me,” Gifford Kennedy, who’s the daughter of sportscaster and NFL legend Frank Gifford, told the Herald.
She goes on to say that Swift and Conor Kennedy left the reception during the meal and then returned afterward to dance the rest of the night with the other attendees.
As previously reported, Swift and Conor Kennedy visited his mother Mary Richardson Kennedy’s grave in Hyannis, Mass., Sunday. She committed suicide in May amid a bitter divorce battle with Conor’s father, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
