Taylor Swift partied Kennedy style on July 3rd with Patrick Schwarzenegger, prompting rumors that the two are dating.
But Swift insists the two are just old friends. In fact, she's been a friend of his family for years now, which earned her a spot on the yacht when they decided to go sailing for the recent holiday.
Schwarzenegger is the son of actor Arnold and Maria Shriver, whose mother is a Kennedy. The extended family got together for the celebration, along with Swift's best friend, "Glee" star Dianna Agron. Swift has been an admirer of the Kennedy family since she was young and attended the premiere of the HBO film "Ethel" earlier this year, which chronicled the life of Ethel Kennedy.
"The only time in my life I have ever been starstruck was meeting Caroline and Ethel Kennedy," she said. "I got to spend the afternoon with Ethel a couple of weeks ago. She is one of my favorites, because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody. You know, 11 kids, all these exotic animals on their property. I've read a lot about them."
For now, she's denying rumors that she and Patrick are an item, but he sure seemed to have a good time, tweeting about the day out on the water:
Had such an amazing day. Best 4th of July I could ask for. Hope everyone had a great day!
