Pop sensation Taylor Swift attended the Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, adding fuel to rumors that she might be dating star tight end Travis Kelce.
Swift, 33, was sitting with Kelce's mother, Donna, in a clip Fox Sports posted just as the Chiefs' game against the Chicago Bears kicked off. She was decked out in red and white, cheering the Chiefs on, the video showed.
One of the Fox Sports game commentators noted that Swift was in the crowd with Kelce’s mother, saying the crowd in their suite seemed to be having a great time.
Video of the singer appearing to shout “Let’s f------ go!” after a Kelce touchdown flooded social media.
“I think the secret’s out. I think we can play matchmaker and put the rumors to rest,” broadcaster Greg Olsen said. “I think they’re officially a couple, and I think the internet is going crazy right now.”
As much as Swift's appearance might have grabbed the attention of social media, it did little to make the game any more competitive or entertaining as the Chiefs went on to a 41-10 smackdown of the visiting Bears.
The contest was so one-sided, 34-0 at halftime, that much of the country that had been watching it on their local Fox affiliate was switching to the Cowboys-Cardinals game as Arizona pulled a major upset.
As announcers at the Bears-Chiefs signed off at that game, viewers were shown footage of Kelce pumping his fist in celebration and Swift jumping out of her seat, throwing her hands up to signal a touchdown.
After the game, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was asked if he felt pressure to get the ball to Kelce because the singer was present.
“I heard she was in the house. I felt a little bit of pressure,” Mahomes said, laughing. “So I knew I had to get it to Trav. … I think he wanted to get in the end zone just as much as the Swifties wanted him to.”
Later, video of Kelce and Swift leaving together was posted on X by Chicago sports media personality Jarrett Payton.
Speculation about Swift and Kelce, 33, a two-time Super Bowl champion, began when he attended the Eras Tour over the summer.
Kelce joked in a podcast with his brother, Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles, that he tried to give her a friendship bracelet with his number on it.
Last week, Travis Kelce said on “The Pat McAfee Show” that he found the headlines about his personal life amusing but he acknowledged that he had invited her to a game.
“I threw the ball in her court. I told her I’ve seen you rock a stage in Arrowhead and you might have to come see me rock the stage at Arrowhead,” Kelce said. “We’ll see what happens in the near future.”
By no means is Swift’s appearance confirmation that the two are dating, but it certainly set the internet ablaze. A source close to Swift said that she and Kelce are hanging out and that it was still early stages.
A representative for Swift did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Jason Kelce deflected the question when he was asked about the rumors on an Amazon Prime postgame show.
“I don’t really know what’s going on there,” he said. “I know Trav is having fun. We’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”
