It’s a love story, perhaps, for NFL tight end Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift, who was seen in Kelce’s family suite during Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears.
The singer was shown cheering on the Chiefs during the Broadcast on FOX Sports, wearing a red and white team jacket. He appeared to be sitting next to Donna Kelce, the player’s mother, chatting and laughing throughout the game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
Swift’s show of support comes after weeks of speculation — by various NFL broadcasters and mostly Swifties — that she and Kelce were dating. Although the two have yet to publicly confirm any romantic link, Kelce said in an interview with ESPN last week that he found the focus on him and Swift “funny.”

“It’s like a school game called telephone, where everyone is whispering in everyone’s ear,” he said, adding that “no one knows what’s going on.”
Speculation began earlier this month when Kelce said on his podcast, “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce,” that he tried to slip her phone number through a friendship bracelet he made for Swift during in one of his “Eras” tour concerts.
Alas, she told her brother Jason that she was “disappointed” to learn that she didn’t speak before or after her shows because she “had to save her voice for the 44 songs she sang. ”
“So, I was a little hurt that I couldn’t give him one of the bracelets I made for him,” he added.
However, Kelce, it seems, tried one more game.
On Thursday, during his conversation with ESPN, Kelce said, “I threw the ball in his court and told him, ‘I saw you rocking the stage at Arrowhead. Maybe you should come see- Let’s rock the Arrowhead stage and see who shines the brightest.’”
“We will see what happens in the future,” he added.
