Philadelphia Eagles’ Jason Kelce confirms dating rumors: Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are a couple.
Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s Relationship Confirmed
The Anti-Hero hitmaker and the two-time Super Bowl winner, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, found themselves at the center of dating rumors when reports emerged earlier this month suggesting that they had been quietly spending time together. Despite the widespread speculation, neither Kelce nor Swift have officially addressed these rumors.
Jason Kelce, who is a 35-year-old center for the Eagles, broke his silence on the matter regarding Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, during an appearance on the WIP Morning Show. He expressed his belief that the dating rumors surrounding Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, his younger brother are indeed entirely accurate. “I think things are going great, and I think it’s 100 percent true,” he stated.
However, Jason also disclosed that he tends to stay somewhat detached from his younger brother’s romantic life, perhaps in an effort to respect his privacy.
“He doesn’t really know a lot about what’s happening in Travis’s love life,” he stated. “You know, Travis’s business is his own, and he tries to stay out of that world.”
Travis, who had previously been in a relationship with influencer and broadcaster Kayla Nicole, was initially connected to Swift earlier in the month.
Reports indicated that Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce spent time together during the visit of the Midnights hit-maker to New York a few weeks ago, as reported by the Messenger last week.
Kelce, who made his season debut on Sunday and scored a touchdown in the Chiefs’ 17-9 victory over the Jaguars, had initially attempted to connect with Swift when her Eras tour made a stop in Kansas City over the summer.
During his New Heights podcast with Jason, he disclosed that he had tried to give the singer a friendship bracelet containing his phone number.
“So, I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t hand her one of the bracelets I had made for her,” Travis lamented. “She doesn’t meet just anyone, or at least she didn’t want to meet me. So, I took it personally.”
Jason playfully speculated that Swift, who hails from Pennsylvania, might have declined to meet Travis because of her well-known affinity for the Eagles. In her song “Gold Rush” from her ninth studio album, “Evermore,” she even mentions her “Eagles t-shirt hanging from the door.”
“He suspects she might still be reeling from the Super Bowl. Perhaps her loyalty to the Eagles drove her to fabricate a story, simply to avoid conversation with you,” he said.
Swift, the recipient of nine VMAs, ended her six-year relationship with actor Joe Alwyn in April. Throughout her career, the renowned pop icon has been romantically linked to a diverse range of celebrities, including Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Tom Hiddleston, Taylor Lautner, and Calvin Harris. Most recently, after her breakup with Alwyn, Swift briefly dated 1975 frontman Matty Healy, but the affair fizzled out in June.
Meanwhile, prior to his relationship with Nicole, Travis headlined his own reality dating show, “Catching Kelce,” in 2016, during his fourth year in the NFL when he earned his first Pro Bowl appearance.
Following the Eagles’ 34-28 victory over the Vikings, Jason faced questions about his brother’s love life. Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez couldn’t resist inquiring about it during Thursday Night Football’s postgame show on Amazon. Regarding Travis’ recent appearance on Kristin Cavallari’s “Let’s Be Honest” podcast, where he discussed dating and relationships, he shared his preferences for a successful relationship. He declared himself swiftly out the door if confronted with “high maintenance” individuals, as arrogance and condescension were significant turn-offs for him.
Smith hinted that their individual success might naturally draw them together, expressing doubt that Travis Kelce would find anyone more successful than Taylor Swift, who amassed over $5 billion on her concert tour. Rob Gronkowski, a four-time Super Bowl champion, suggested they could become the “No. 1 Ken and Barbie in the NFL.”
