Conor Kennedy Was Defending His Gay Friend During Bar Fight

Conor Kennedy was arrested this week following a bar fight in Aspen and now his father, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., is explaining what happened during the “menacing” incident.

The 22-year-old was defending his gay friend against bullies who called him the F-word, his father said.

Conor has always reacted against bullying,” Robert told Aspen Times. “I’m happy he stood up for his friend… I’m very sorry it turned into a police incident. [Conor’s] not liking the attention.”

A group of four men allegedly used homophobic slurs against one of Conor‘s friends and the Kennedy family member asked them to apologize. One of the guys did apologize, but when they were leaving the club an hour later, the guys started using the slurs again. Conor told them to stop and that’s when one of the guys took a swing at him and the fight broke out.

“We are aware of some of those allegations and we are following up on them this evening,” Assistant Police Chief Bill Linn said in a statement. “At the moment, there have been no allegations of additional crimes given by witnesses or those involved in the incident.”

Conor dated Taylor Swift in 2012 and they were spotted on several occasions together around the family compound in Massachusetts.

Beauty and the Beast's Ewan McGregor Had Trouble Perfecting Lumiere's Accent!

Ewan McGregor suits up for the 10th Annual GO Campaign Gala held at Manuela on Saturday (November 5) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old actor was joined on the red carpet by his wife Eve Mavrakis as well as Robert Pattinson, Liam Hemsworth, Lily Collins, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Courtney Love, her beau Nicholas Jarecki, Asia Chow, Chad Lowe, and Julia Ormond.

Ewan recently opened up about how he struggled with getting Lumiere’s French accent down for the upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, also starring Emma Watson.

“It’s nice to get the opportunity to sing again in a film,” Ewan told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s been a long time since I got the chance to do a big number, like I had the opportunity [to do] in Moulin Rouge. And I get this great number, ‘Be Our Guest,’ which Lumiere sings.”

“When they were shooting, they wanted to have all of our voices to act with, so Emma and Darren had characters to work with – that being our voices,” he added. “So, we went to London, we did some very quick accent-coaching [laughs], which in my case didn’t work out terribly well. My French didn’t really sound very French to begin with – it sounded a bit Spanish or something. And then some time later, I went over to New York, where Bill Condon [the film’s director] was doing all his post-production and I recorded the whole part again. I’d done a bit more work on the accent, so it sounded more French and I got rerecord the song. So, I got to do my whole performance again, which was a really nice opportunity. You don’t often get offered that. But I got a chance to have another crack at all of it!”

FYI: Lily is wearing an Elie Saab dress.
