Taylor Swift was spotted cheering on Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce on Sunday night amid rumors that the two were dating.
In a video posted online by ESPN, Swift, a 12-time Grammy Award-winning musician, is seen alongside Kelce’s mother, Donna, in the crowd during the Chiefs’ game against the Chicago Bears.
“Taylor Swift is at Arrowhead Stadium to watch Travis Kelce and the Chiefs,” ESPN posted on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
Swift’s fans, known as “Swifties,” reacted to her presence at the game on social media, prompting her to trend X.
“TAYLOR SWIFT IS NEXT TO TRAVIS KELCE’S MOTHER IN THE PLAYERS’ SUITE AT THE CHIEFS GAME.” wrote @bre_offenbergerwho also posted a reaction meme.
“This is the greatest day of my life. Taylor Swift just casually hanging out in my city, oh my god.” wrote @swifferwins.
“It’s not Taylor Swift who’s cheering for anyone like we’re cheering for her.” wrote @thejohnny81.
“Not Taylor Swift…Travis Kelce, you might have won” posted @taylorsnet.
Her appearance comes at a time when fans have been speculating about her romantic status for weeks. The Messenger reported on Sept. 12 that the two were “quietly hanging out,” but neither spoke about the rumors until Kelce said he invited Swift to watch him play at an appearance on Sunday The Pat McAfee Show.
“I kicked it out, I threw the ball into their court. And, you know, I told her, you know, maybe, ‘I saw you rocking the stage at Arrowhead. Maybe you need to come and watch me rock.’ Stage at Arrowhead. And see which one is a little brighter.’ “So we’ll see what happens in the near future,” he said Thursday.
He also described the speculation about their relationship as “hilarious.”
“I think at the moment it’s like an old school game called telephone where everyone is just whispering in each other’s ears and just hearing random things. And then most importantly, no one knows what’s going on, especially if you did it.” “I got Jason Kelce on live TV to just tell people both sides. He doesn’t know, it’s true, it’s this and that,” Kelce said.
Kelce joined Swift’s Eras tour back in July. He said he had planned to give her a friendship bracelet, a tradition at her concert that comes from the lyrics to her song “You’re on Your Own Kid” and which had his phone number written on it at the show, but ultimately didn’t get the chance to do this.
Newsweek emailed Swift’s publicist for comment.
