. Kennedy Jr says he could not handle how his 16 year old daughter Kyra was coping with the death of her mother by suicide so he packed her up and shipped her off to live with Cheryl Hines. According to Radar, Cheryl was the reason Kyra's mom had committed suicide so it does seem kind of crass to send Kyra to go live with Cheryl. Apparently Robert was also worried that somehow Kyra might embarrass him or do something wrong so best get her out of the way so he didn't have to deal with it or her. You know, every article or story I have ever read about this guy makes me wonder what Cheryl Hines ever has seen in him. I also wonder if he ever hit on Taylor Swift. Would you put it past him to throw out a couple of feelers?
