The 2023 football season is only three weeks old and, while there are plenty of storylines to follow, one storyline in particular has everyone on the edge of their seat – and it has nothing to do with football. Instead, it has to do with a certain romance between none other than Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift.
Up until Sunday, their romance was nothing more than a rumor that had everyone’s attention. Things really started to heat up when Travis invited her to watch him and his Kansas City Chiefs take on the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday (September 24) – a stadium she sold out twice in July.
The ball was in her court (or field, in this case) and she apparently accepted that offer because there she was – hanging out in a suite at the game, cheering on the Chiefs, wearing a team jacket, and seated next to Travis’ mother, Donna Kelce. If that doesn’t confirm the two are an item, then I don’t know what will.
It’s also important to note that Taylor Swift was visibly (and audibly) cheering for Travis Kelce – alluding to a certain play in the third quarter that saw Travis catch a TD pass from Patrick Mahomes. The cameras immediately zoomed in on Taylor, who screamed ‘let’s f***ing go” and even gave her friend a chest bump.
With that said, Swift and Kelce have yet to publicly confirm (or deny) the fact that they’re an item – though it appears to be obvious at this point. As one PR expert (Melissa DiGianfilippo) puts it, Taylor is the type of celebrity who is only seen when she wants to be seen and only heard when she wants to be heard.
She was both seen and heard on Sunday and it wasn’t a coincidence – it was a sign. And while a lot of people want to argue that it’s nothing more than a publicity stunt for the two A-list celebrities, DiGianfilippo doesn’t see that as a possibility. She believes this is 100% authentic because they’re both in their prime.
“If Travis or Taylor were in hot water or amid a public image crisis, that would lead me to think that this is an opportunity to save face or repair a problem. Neither of these celebrities is in that situation right now,” DiGianfilippo told TODAY.com. So it’s all but settled – Swifties are, by default, fans of the Chiefs now.
Travis Kelce Enjoys Night Out With Taylor Swift
For those of you who still aren’t convinced that Taylor Swift was at the game in support of her new love interest, Travis Kelce, then you’ll be pleased to learn that they were seen walking through the locker room together and were seen leaving in a car together. But that’s not all, according to Entertainment Tonight.
“Travis bought out the restaurant for his family and team. Taylor arrived, wearing a denim dress, and was seen snacking, having some cocktails and dancing alongside Travis. The two were very affectionate with one another but kept things fun and lighthearted,” one source shared exclusively with ET on Monday.
The source went on to say that the two aren’t rushing into anything and are taking things slowly, but there certainly an item and are definitely testing the water. “Both are very career-focused, so the focus is on that for now, but that’s not going to stop them from enjoying life when it’s the right moment,” the source said.
The party lasted until 2 a.m. and even included his mother and father, but he got much more than just a night out with his new beau. According to ESPN, the future Hall of Fame tight end saw his jersey sales increase more than 400% ‘throughout the Fanatics network of sites,’ which includes NFLShop.com.
