Taylor and Brittany’s budding friendship has been making headlines since last month, amid Travis’ new romance with the pop star.
They apparently met on September 24, the first time Taylor went to Arrowhead Stadium to watch Travis play, which sent her fans into a frenzy.
Decked out in Chiefs colors, Taylor had a place of honor in the VIP box, where she could be seen happily standing in front of Travis next to his mother.
It was that night at a postgame party that Taylor reportedly bonded with Brittany, whose husband noted at a press conference a few days later that Taylor was “really cool, good people.”
Less than two weeks ago, Taylor watched Travis and his fellow Chiefs take on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey — the same sprawling venue where Taylor performed in May as part of her massive Eras Tour.
Upwards in a VIP box, pop superstar Travis ecstatically cheered amid a thicket of friends, including Blake Lively, Sophie Turner and Brittany.
She might get noticed too enjoying some warm moments with Travis’ mom Donna as they watched the Chiefs beat the Jets.
Blake, who was accompanied by her husband Ryan Reynolds, was seen jumping up and down so enthusiastically that she almost had a wardrobe malfunction.
Meanwhile, Taylor has built a blossoming friendship with Sophie amid the latter’s split from their mutual ex Joe Jonas.
Taylor, who briefly dated Joe in the summer of 2008, has written several songs said to be about him, including the scathing Better Than Revenge.
Joe and Sophie married in 2019 and split last month, having since waged a bitter custody battle that has played out in the headlines.
Their main point of contention seems to be where their two young daughters will live, with Joe arguing for the US and Sophie for her native Britain.
News of Travis’ romance with Taylor became public in mid-September — two months after he shared on his podcast that he tried and failed to give her his phone number during her concert in Kansas City.
The athlete said his phone number was engraved on a bracelet, which he planned to present to Taylor, but when he attended her show in Kansas City, he failed to meet her backstage.
“So she doesn’t meet anyone and she doesn’t – or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personally,” he joked on his podcast New Heights, which he co-hosts with his brother and sister. fellow NFL star Jason Kelce.
Their public appearances as a duo have repeatedly gone viral, including a dinner party they enjoyed after allegedly clearing out the restaurant by paying for all the other customers’ meals in exchange for their departure.
