After the Philadelphia Eagles secured a 34-28 victory against the Minnesota Vikings on September 14, there was some buzz about the possibility of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce dating pop sensation Taylor Swift. During the postgame show on Prime Video, analyst and retired NFL star Tony Gonzalez touched upon this topic.
Gonzalez mentioned that his 15-year-old daughter is a fan of a particular pop star, without explicitly naming Swift, and asked Jason Kelce, the star center for the Eagles, to comment on the rumors.
In response, Kelce acknowledged that he had heard these rumors but chose not to provide any details. He also noted that people have been curious about his brother Travis’s romantic life since he appeared on the reality show “Catching Kelce” in 2016.
Kelce said, “Ever since ‘Catching Kelce,’ everybody’s been infatuated with Travis’ love life, so I don’t really know what’s going on there. I know Trav is having fun, and we’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”
It’s worth noting that Travis Kelce initially sparked the discussion about a potential connection with Taylor Swift. In July, he revealed on his “New Heights” podcast that he had attempted to give Swift his number when he attended her “Eras Tour” at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
“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 butthurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her,” he shared on the July 26 episode of his “New Heights” podcast, which he co-hosts with his brother.
He further explained, “If you’re up on Taylor Swift concerts, there are friendship bracelets, and I received a bunch of them being there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it,” referring to the bracelets commonly seen at Swift’s shows.
Despite not getting the chance to meet Swift, Kelce mentioned that he had a fantastic time at the concert. He humorously added, “She doesn’t meet anybody, or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personally. But it was an unbelievable show.”
