After Taylor Swift attends Chiefs game, Travis Kelce addresses dating life on New Heights podcast
Taylor Swift attending the Kansas City Chiefs game with Travis Kelce sparked dating rumors, but Kelce says he'll keep his love life private.
The NFL was abuzz with a non-football-related story last weekend when Taylor Swift made an appearance at the Kansas City Chiefs game on Sunday. Rumors of her dating Chiefs star Travis Kelce have been circulating, and the two addressed the speculation on Travis and his brother Jason's podcast, "New Heights." In the latest episode, they jokingly referred to the topic as "the elephant in the room."
During the game, Swift joined Travis' family and friends in his suite at Arrowhead Stadium. She was seen sitting next to his mother, Donna, and even celebrated Travis' touchdown with a chest bump. After the game, the Berks County-native left with Travis and attended a team party. It was a weekend filled with enjoyment for both of them.
Travis emphasized the importance of respecting their personal lives and keeping their dating life private. He acknowledged that Swift is not in the media as much as he is, with his weekly show and appearances on other shows during the NFL season. Travis expressed his appreciation for life and the weekend they had together.
The rumored romance has attracted attention not only from football fans but also from Swift's fans, known as Swifties. As a result, the Kelce brothers answered some football-related questions from those less familiar with the sport. They explained terms like downs and field goals and even discussed the legitimacy of the tight end position. Although they had fun answering the questions, they admitted that explaining football terms that come naturally to them was more challenging than expected.
In addition to the dating rumors, Travis mentioned that he has noticed paparazzi outside his house. As a result, he has made a commitment to keep his dating life private from now on and shift public conversations to focus on sports.
Swift's presence at the Chiefs game contributed to it being the most-watched NFL matchup of the weekend, with 24.3 million viewers. Ratings even saw an 8% increase among girls aged 12 to 17, according to ESPN. Furthermore, jersey sales for Travis Kelce, who was already a popular player, have grown by 400%.
Even Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes joked about feeling pressure to throw Travis a touchdown pass with Swift in attendance. The entire podcast episode, where Travis and Jason discussed these topics, can be watched on YouTube or streamed on various podcasting platforms.
