Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas has refuted a report that Taylor Swift may have been asked to stay away from the Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade on Wednesday.
Citing reports of KCURhe New York Post published a story saying that City Manager Brian Platt had ‘hinted’ that the city couldn’t handle the fanfare she would bring if she decided to be there to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce.
“I can’t confirm or deny, but we may have already told his team, just to keep everyone safe and make things a little easier for us,” Platt said, according to KCUR.
However, Mayor Lucas has rejected that notion, emphatically calling it “not at all true” in response to the Post’s X story.
‘Just had a great chat with Chief Graves from @kcpolice. “We are thrilled to welcome everyone to tomorrow’s parade and the women and men of our police department are prepared to keep everyone safe,” Mayor Lucas wrote.
