Swift, 33, watched the game in an Arrowhead Stadium box as Kelce, also 33, and his NFL team took on the Chicago Bears. Swift sported a T-shirt in the team’s red and white colors as she sat next to Kelce’s mom, Donna Kelce.
Rumors first swirled that Swift was dating the Chiefs tight end after he watched her Eras Tour concert at his team’s stadium — and wanted to connect with her backstage.
“She doesn’t meet anybody — or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personal. But it was an unbelievable show. Kansas City showed out,” Travis said during a July episode of his “New Heights” podcast. “Everybody was dressed in pink and purple, going crazy for her.”
He continued: “Well, I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings. So I was a little butt-hurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
While Travis was unable to gift his DIY bracelets to Swift, rumors continued to heat up after various outlets reported that the duo had been out on a couple of dates together. NFL announcers even played into the speculation earlier this month, making references to Swift’s lyrics whenever Travis scored a touchdown.
Jason, 35, however, was confused about their relationship status — but thinks it could be true.
“It is hard to answer because I don’t really know a lot about what is happening in Travis’ love life. I try to, like, keep his business [as] his business and straight out of that world,” Jason, who plays football for the Philadelphia Eagles, quipped on Philadelphia’s WIP Morning Show on Wednesday, September 20. “Having said that. … I think it is 100 percent true.”
One day later, Travis acknowledged his sibling’s remarks — while offering an update on the potential romance.
“I told her, ‘You know, I’ve seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead [Stadium], you might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead and see which one’s a little more lit,’” Travis said on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Thursday, September 21. “So, we’ll see what happens in the near future.”
The Grammy winner, for her part, has been single since May when Us Weekly confirmed she had ended her fling with Matty Healy. (Swift split from her partner of six years, Joe Alwyn, shortly before connecting with Healy.)
