MARIA SHRIVER doesn’t want Taylor Swift singing any love songs to her hunky son Patrick Schwarzenegger – and she’s told the country superstar to take a hike, say sources.
The estranged wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger has ordered the 22-year-old country cutie to steer clear of her 18-year-old son. Maria fears Taylor will chew him up, spit him out and then write a song about him as she’s done with previous famous boyfriends.
“Maria got word to Taylor and warned her not to get any ideas about dating Patrick,” revealed an insider. “She basically told Taylor to ‘back off.’”
The “You Belong with Me” singer was photographed cozying up to recent high school grad Patrick at an Independence Day gathering at the Kennedys’ Hyannis Port, Mass., compound.
Taylor is a longtime Kennedy family friend and an excited Patrick tweeted that the festivities were “the best 4th of July I could ask for.”
Said the insider: “Maria is worried that Taylor will lead Patrick on and then leave his heart shattered in a million pieces, like she’s done with other guys.”
The country star has dated the likes of Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Taylor Lautner, and she regularly writes candid songs about her failed love affairs.
Meanwhile, budding actor Patrick joined one of Taylor’s exes, Lautner, on July 6 to shoot scenes for the movie “Grown Ups 2” in Massachusetts.
While Maria thinks Taylor is a sweet girl, “she’s 100 percent opposed to Patrick dating her,” said the insider. “He’s entering the University of Southern California in the fall and she doesn’t want anything distracting him”
