The top American pop singer, Taylor Swift, and the top American football player, Travis Kelce, have dominated headlines since their romance was first rumored to be a thing. Swift’s first appearance at Kelce’s game in Kansas City became one of the year’s most talked-about moments.
Things are escalating quickly, but the two may not be official just yet; anything is possible in the future.
It all started when the 34-year-old NFL player revealed that he attempted to give the 33-year-old pop star his number via friendship bracelet during a stop on the Eras Tour. “I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the ’4 songs that she sings,” Kelce said during a podcast. “So I was a little butt-hurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
Well, according to the celebrity rumor mill, Taylor Swift wasn’t averse to meeting Travis Kelce after all. She accepted his offer to attend a Kansas City Chiefs game on September 24, and things have moved fairly quickly from there.
Swift goes out in New York City wearing Foundrae’s Forever & Always a Pair Pendant, which has an opal teardrop stone on it. Opal is Kelce’s birthstone, and the necklace may have been an easter egg.
Following the Chiefs’ victory, Swift and Kelce are spotted leaving Arrowhead Stadium hand in hand. “Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out,” a source told the outlet. “She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago.”

Kelce dodges questions about Swift during an interview with Andrew Siciliano. “I’m not gonna talk about my personal life,” Kelce said. “I know what you writers wanna hear, and you wanna hear more about that, and I’m not gonna give you anything.”
Kelce says he invited Swift to his game during an interview with The Pat McAfee Show. She later attends it.

The sources said with Swift’s international tour leg starting back up, the couple is about to enter “a very challenging stage of their relationship.” “Taylor and Travis make a concerted effort to keep their connection alive and thriving,” the source said, noting Swift is “calling a lot of the shots.”
