We’re gonna keep things short and sweet here since we know you’re reading this story for one thing and one thing only: Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce dating.
Luckily, we dusted off our best Sherlock Holmes ’fits and texted our sports-loving situationships (for research purposes only, we promise!) to give you all the deets on how this whole sitch started and where Taylor and Travis (Tayvis?) stand now. 👀 Let’s begin, shall we?
Taylor performs at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, and it’s an absolutely flawless show, per usual. 10/10, no notes!
During an episode of his New Heights podcast (which he cohosts with his brother, Jason Kelce), Travis mentions that he had recently gone to a Taylor concert and written his number on a friendship bracelet to give to her (big, big win for the Swifties), but—alas—he wasn’t able to shoot his shot.
“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,” the Kansas City Chiefs tight end reveals on the show.
Although Taylor usually holds special fan meet-and-greets during her previous tours, she (understandably!) isn’t hosting any during the Eras Tour, given that she pours her literal heart and soul into the three-and-a-half-hours set she does nightly. Travis then opens up about how bummed he was to have missed the singer but praises her for performing in front of a “wild” crowd at Arrowhead Stadium—aka where he not so casually plays for the Kansas City Chiefs.
“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,” he adds, confessing that he was “a little butt-hurt” that he couldn’t chat with her. “She doesn’t meet anybody—or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personal,” he jokes. In-ter-est-ing!
