If Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce really are “New Romantics,” then Missouri’s Arrowhead Stadium might just be about to become “Holy Ground” for Swifties everywhere.
At the Kansas City Chiefs’ matchup against the Chicago Bears, Swift was spotted in Kelce’s suite—and sitting next to the tight end’s mother, no less. She was filmed cheering when quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw Kelce a touchdown in the second half of the game, chest-bumping a friend and mouthing, “Let’s fucking go!”
“I heard she was in the house,” Mahomes told Fox Sports after the game, which the Chiefs won 41-10. “I felt a little bit of pressure and so I knew I had to get it to Trav.”
Kelce told Mahomes of Swift’s potential appearance “last minute” on Friday, he revealed in a post-game press conference, adding he was initially unsure if he was telling the truth.
“There’s some things with Trav when he says it and you kinda don’t know if it’s true or not, he says it so calmly,” Mahomes explained.
“She’s a pop star. She’s tremendous at everything she does, I haven’t gotten to meet her but I guess if she ends up being with Travis then I guess I’ll probably get to meet her at some point. She seems like a good person so hopefully I get to meet her one day.”
Coach Andy Reid kept relatively quiet about the pair in the post-game press conference, except for making a joke: “I set them up.”
Swift and Kelce were also spotted leaving the locker room together.
Following fervid speculation, the appearance by the “Anti-Hero” singer all but confirms she is seeing Kelce in some capacity.
The athlete joked about the rumors earlier this week, dropping by The Pat McAfee show on Thursday to reveal he’d extended an invitation to Swift to come watch him play.
“I threw the ball in her court,” he said. “I told her, ‘I’ve seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead, you might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead.’ We’ll see what happens in the near future.”
Swift, on the other hand, has remained characteristically tight-lipped about any potential budding relationship, which comes around five months after it was confirmed that she and longtime beau Joe Alwyn had ended things.
