In the wake of her split from Conor Kennedy, we match up Taylor Swift's exes to her breakup songs...

We were shocked to hear that Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy had called time on their ultra-cute relationship today, citing the singer's busy work schedule as the reason behind the split. But, looking at Taylor's track record of writing her famous ex-boyfriends into her breakup songs, it seems as if Conor might want to keep an ear out for her next big tune...

The 22 year-old, who has previously been linked to Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Harry Styles (what?!) and Eddie Redmayne, is famed for using her music as a kathartic exercise.

And, as Taylor Swift has written so many songs about heartbreak and breakups, it makes sense that her fans have been busy trying to guess which of her famous ex-boyfriends each song is about.

From the downright obvious ('Dear John' for John Mayer, anyone?) to the slightly more cryptic (let's talk 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together'), we've decided to take a look back over Taylor Swift's biggest breakups and match them up with her biggest breakup songs.

Check out the gallery below - do you agree with our interpretations of Taylor Swift's biggest hits? 


Joe Jonas apparently broke up with Taylor Swift over the phone (oh no he DIDN'T!) and she quickly penned 'Forever & Always' about him. And 'Last Kiss'. And 'Better than Revenge'. Nothing says "I'm over you" like THREE songs, eh? October 25 2012 (Splash News)
Taylor Lautner was reportedly way more into Taylor Swift than she was into him, leading to their eventual (and amicable) split in early 2010. It's rumoured that her tune 'Back To December' is about the 'Twilight' hunk - tellingly, at the end of the song, she asks for his forgiveness and hints to the fact she wants to be with him again. No such luck yet. October 25 2012 (Splash News)
Jake Gyllenhaal went one worse than Joe Jonas and broke up with Taylor Swift through a text. Ouch. No wonder so many people think 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' is about him! October 25 2012 (Splash News)
Just LOOK at John Mayer! It's easy to see why so many people suspect that Taylor Swift penned the songs 'Dear John' and 'I Knew You Were Trouble' about the rock star bad boy... October 25 2012 (Splash News)
Oh sure, Taylor Swift and Adam Young (of Owl City) never got together - but Taylor Swift still (apparently) wrote 'Enchanted' about him. It's all about an instant chemistry with someone you meet at a party... maybe, now she's single, these two can explore their mutual attraction? October 25 2012 (Splash News)
What's Harry Styles doing in here!? Well, it's rumored that 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' could also be about the One Direction singer, with sources claiming that "Taylor loved Harry, but when he kissed another girl she got mad."   October 25 2012 (Splash News)
So far, Connor Kennedy has only had epic love ballad 'State Of Grace' connected to him - but we imagine that Taylor Swift might pen their amicable breakup into a song at some point in the future. October 25 2012 (
