Taylor Swift shuts down tabloid rumors about her love life

Singer TAYLOR SWIFT has shut down ongoing rumors about her love life, insisting she didn't purchase a home next to her ex CONOR KENNEDY or buy HARRY STYLES BEATLES memorabilia for Christmas (12).

The Love Story hitmaker was thought to have shelled out $4.5 million for an oceanside estate in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts last summer (12) so she could be closer to the 18-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

However, Swift jokes that's simply not the case, telling Spanish TV show El Hormiguero, "People say that I'm buying houses all the time that I'm not buying. It's like every time the press thinks I like a guy, they say I am buying a house next to them."

The media struck again just before the holidays, with reports suggesting the country star was shopping for autographed Fab Four items for her then-boyfriend Styles of One Direction, but the tabloids were all mistaken.

Swift continues, "And also they think they know what I'm getting people for Christmas, which they don't. I was thinking when I saw that one (rumor) that if they actually got it right I would be so sad because they would have blown my Christmas present, but they were all wrong."
