Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift: Are They More Than Friends?
The rumour mill is buzzing with speculation as fans wonder if Travis Kelce and global music sensation Taylor Swift are officially dating. Their alleged romance has been a hot topic lately, with several fascinating moments that have fueled speculation about their relationship.
Our journey began in October 2016 when an interview featuring Travis Kelce on AfterbuzzTV resurfaced. During the interview, Travis played the classic game of “Kiss, Marry, Kill” with three prominent female celebrities: Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and Katy Perry. Travis’s choices were fascinating, with him selecting Ariana Grande to be ‘killed,’ Taylor Swift to be ‘kissed,’ and Katy Perry to be ‘married.’ This video resurfacing amidst current rumours naturally piqued fans’ interest.
Fast forward to July 2023, when Travis Kelce had the opportunity to attend Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour at Arrowhead Stadium. Travis had crafted a special friendship bracelet with his number on it, intending to give it to Taylor. Unfortunately, his plan failed as Taylor Swift doesn’t meet fans before or after her shows to preserve her vocal cords for the extensive 44-song performances. Travis expressed his disappointment during an episode of the “New Heights” podcast, hosted by his brother, Jason Kelce, saying, “I was a little butthurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
Jason Kelce also humorously pointed out that Taylor Swift is a devoted Eagles fan, which may have played a role in her reluctance to meet him, given that his Chiefs defeated the Eagles in the 2023 Super Bowl.
Rumours of Travis and Taylor spending time together started circulating in early September 2023. An unknown source claimed that the two had been “quietly hanging out,” mentioning that Taylor had seen Travis while she was in New York City a few weeks prior. However, another source rejected this information, claiming that Travis had a crush on Taylor but clarifying that they were not dating.
Adding further intrigue to the situation, Jason Kelce, Travis’s brother and a player for the Philadelphia Eagles, made cryptic comments during a post-game interview on September 14, 2023. When asked about the rumours surrounding Travis and Taylor, Jason neither confirmed nor denied them, simply stating, “I’ve seen these rumours, I cannot comment.” He acknowledged the longstanding fascination with Travis’s love life since his reality show “Catching Kelce” and playfully added, “We’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”
In another interview on the 94 WIP Morning Show, Jason maintained his mysterious view, saying, “It’s hard to answer because I don’t really know a lot about what’s happening in Travis’s love life, and I try to keep his business, his business and stay out of that world. Having said that, man, I think they’re doing great, and I think it’s all 100% true. I hope this thing goes a mile. No, I’m joking. I don’t know what’s happening.”
So, are Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift officially boyfriend and girlfriend? The answer remains mysterious, with neither party confirming nor denying the rumours. Fans will continue to keep a close eye on this intriguing potential romance, eagerly awaiting any updates that might shed more light on this blossoming connection between a superstar athlete and a global music icon. For now, the speculation continues, leaving us all to wonder if love is in the air for Travis and Taylor.
