Now he's taken the plane ride of shame home to face the wrath of his unhappy grandmother.
Taylor Swift Kennedy?
Now that cradle-robber Taylor Swift, 22, is dating 18-year-old Conor Kennedy - not saying this is a coincidence, but Taylor's new single just dropped - she seems eager to be seen with her new boyfriend.
Even where she's not wanted.
The Boston Herald reported that Taylor (as Conor's plus-one) showed up at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel for the wedding of Kyle Kennedy and Liam Kerr even though she was not invited, was asked not to attend when she asked to be invited, and was asked to leave when she made an appearance anyway.
So says Kyle's mom, Victoria Gifford Kennedy.
For those of you playing "Family Tree" at home, Victoria, the daughter of Frank Gifford and Maxine Ewart, is the widow of Michael Kennedy, a son of Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy. Conor is the son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy. So Conor and Kyle, both grandchildren to Ethel, would be cousins, and Victoria is Conor's aunt by marriage.
Taylor Alison Swift is the daughter of Scott and Andrea Swift of Pennsylvania.
Victoria did not want Taylor to attend the wedding because she was afraid she would distract from Kyle's big day.
Taylor's people say the bride and groom wanted her there.
* Maybe the Romney-Ryan ticket should stick to campaign songs by Pat Boone and Anita Bryant.
Talkingpointsmemo.com reported that Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, following in the musical footsteps of Rage Against the Machine and Silversun Pickups, wants Paul Ryan to stop playing his song "We're Not Gonna Take It."
"I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my band Twisted Sister's song 'We're Not Gonna Take It' in any capacity," Snider said. "There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X."
* J.K. Rowling plans to make her one and only in-person appearance in the U.S. to promote her first novel for adults.

Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis starting Sept. 10. Prices are $44 for phone purchases, $43 for online and $37 at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office.
* On Wednesday, Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff appointed Michael Jackson's nephew TJ Jackson to share guardianship responsibilities for the singer's three children, but not without a last-minute effort by some relatives to delay the decision.
Beckloff made the ruling after considering a letter submitted by Diana Ross, who was named in M.J.'s will as a potential guardian, and a letter presented by cousins of the singer who sought a delay in the appointment.
Debra Jackson and her son Anthony urged Beckloff to delay his ruling, saying they were concerned that family matriarch Katherine Jackson was being coerced. The pair said that they had been ostracized from the family and that the children may not be as excited about TJ Jackson's appointment as has been presented to the judge.
But Beckloff noted that all three children have consented to the co-guardianship, and that an independent investigation he ordered showed they "have a very strong, loving relationship with TJ Jackson."
* LL Cool J ("NCIS: Los Angeles") beat up a suspected burglar early Wednesday morning at his walled and gated mansion in the Studio City area of Los Angeles, police said. He was not hurt.
Police got a 9-1-1 call shortly before 1 a.m. from someone who said her father had spotted an intruder in their home and was holding him downstairs.
"There was a prowler at his residence whom he confronted in the kitchen. . . . There was a physical confrontation briefly between the two of them," Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Richard French said.
A 58-year-old man was taken to the hospital and was expected to be arrested on suspicion of burglary. His identity wasn't released.
"He appeared to be a homeless person," French said.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the suspect suffered a broken nose and jaw in a "knockdown, drag-out" fight.
* Four more cases of syphilis have been found in an investigation of an outbreak among porn performers, bringing the total to nine, and the discovery of more cases is likely, Los Angeles County's top health official said Tuesday.
Fortunately, heterosexual, married couples need not worry about the outbreak. Based on talking points Tattle has received from slightly off-their-gourd Republican politicians, syphilis cannot be spread by missionary-style sexual intercourse between loving, baby-making, married couples of the opposite sex.
