Taylor Swift
is never, ever, ever ... gonna be more than a stone's throw from the Kennedys ... because TMZ has learned, Swifty DEFINITELY bought a mansion next door to their famous Cape Cod compound.

According to a local realtor ... Swift 100% will be moving across the street from Ethel Kennedy -- despite reports to the contrary.  The realtor tells us the singer dropped around $4.5 million on the beachside mansion in Hyannis Port, MA.

As you know ... Taylor and 18-year-old Connor Kennedy -- grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel -- started dating a few months back.

Our sources tell us the deal will close in 3 weeks.

As for the crib -- we're talking 7 bedrooms, 6 baths, over 4,400 square feet, an acre of land and its own private beach.

Where she can write songs about ... not breaking up?

Britney Spears

Buys $8.5 MILLION Mansion

with Jason Trawick

Exclusive Details
1019_britney_launch

Britney Spears has left Calabasas ... and moved into a brand new $8.5 MILLION mansion even further away from all of the Hollywood madness.

The 8,456 square foot home is located inside a swanky private community in Thousand Oaks, CA -- about 16 miles from Brit's old mansion in Calabasas.

Here are the stats -- 5 bedrooms, 7 baths, wine cellar, home theater and massive infinity pool.

We're told Britney made the move because she's starting a new life with fiance Jason Trawick ... and wants to be in a new home in a secure location.

The move puts Britney even further away from the hub of Hollywood -- but we've learned Brit will stay in a super-fancy L.A. hotel when "X Factor" comes to Los Angeles in a few weeks.

Rupert Sanders & Liberty Ross

HUGGIN'

IT OUT

Rupert Sanders
has proven ... you CAN bang a hot Hollywood actress behind your wife's back and still make it all good again ... and we have the pics to prove it. 

Rupert and Liberty Ross shared a great big HUG after leaving a counseling session in Beverly Hills Wednesday. We broke the story ... just weeks after the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal broke, Liberty and Rupert were seeing the counselor.

We also told you ... Liberty went to see a divorce lawyer after the story broke but she has not pulled the trigger and wants to save the marriage.

Our sources say Liberty has laid down some ground rules for any reconciliation ... which includes an extramarital banging ban.

Judging by the hug, it seems they're making some serious progress ... but neither Rupert nor Liberty was wearing a wedding ring at the time of the embrace. They arrived and left separately.

Seems to be the season for forgiveness ... just a few days ago, Robert Pattinson was photographed hangin' out with Kristen.

Kristen Stewart

Dropped $2.2 Mil To Live

1.5 Miles From Rob

1016_kstew_home_v3_launch
Just one month after Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson allegedly called it quits ... KStew bought a house within monitoring distance of her ex ... a very weird move indeed.

Stewart dropped $2.2 mil on a Los Feliz pad that is just 1.5 miles away from her scorned ex.

RPatz kicked KStew out  in July after photos surfaced that showed pretty clearly ... she was banging her married "Snow White" director Rupert Sanders.

Stewart's new home gave her easy access to R.P. -- it's a 5 minute car ride.

If the break-up was real ... her plan may have worked, because KStew and RPatz have been seen TWICE together in L.A. -- once at a local bar and again yesterday in Hollywood.

As for her house, according to Real Estalker it's pretty sweet ... 4-bedrooms, 5-baths, pool, spa, fire pits, sun terrace -- the works.

The question now ... Will one of their homes go up for sale?

Celebrate The Boss!

1016_theboss_launchToday is National Boss Day, so what better way to celebrate than by honoring The Man himself ... Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen.

Baby he was born to run ... things.

REUNITED ...

Like She Never Cheated

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart continued their public display of forgiveness ... hanging out together for lunch in Hollywood.

Rob and Kristen were spotted leaving a restaurant with a group of friends Monday afternoon -- never holding hands ... but standing mere feet from each other.

This was the 2nd time in 24 hours they were seen together around L.A. ... just 3 months after Kristen admitted cheating with director Rupert Sanders -- but, even more telling, exactly one month before the release of the last "Twilight" movie. Hmm ...

Happy now, Twihards?

Octomom
got a nice little house-warming gift this weekend -- when her brand new pad was PELTED WITH 3 DOZEN EGGS ... by some mystery vandals.

Sources close to Octo tell TMZ ... the mom of 14 wasn't home when the prank went down late Friday night -- she was in NYC attending a drag queen show at XL nightclub -- but her children were.

We're told Octo discovered the mess outside her Palmdale house when she came back Saturday morning -- with eggs covering her van, garage door and front drive-way.

1015_octomom_egged_house_damage_launch_wm_sub_Asset
Not only that ... we're told the eggs sat for so long, they attracted a ferocious army of ants, which fed off the rotting goo.

As for the damage ... we're told it cost Octo $100 to clean the eggs, and another $100 to kill the ant infestation.

Bright side ... Omelets!
