Taylor Swift enjoyed an epic girls’ night out with famous friends including Blake Lively, Sophie Turner and Brittany Mahomes in New York City last month, amid her new romance with Travis Kelce.
The superstar singer, 33, looked glamorous as she and her 12-member group dined at Soho eatery Emilio’s Ballato, where they raised a whopping $4,000.
With Swift worth an estimated $740 million and undeniably the richest of the group — it may have seemed like a safe bet to have picked up the check that night — but the star got treatment that night.
DeuxMoiwho received the receipt for the meal reports that the group’s order included two bottles of San Pellegrino, two Cosmopolitan cocktails and two Aperol Spritz cocktails, with each guest opting for the set menu for $195 each.
Meanwhile, guests dined on the restaurant’s Tagliatelle alla Bolognese.
I’ve got a blank check, baby! Taylor Swift enjoyed an epic girls’ night out with famous friends including Blake Lively, Sophie Turner and Brittany Mahomes in New York City last month, amid her new romance with Travis Kelce — but who footed the bill?
The bill was picked up by Taylor’s longtime BFF Blake, 36, who is worth about $30 million.
The Italian eatery is owned by smoldering chef Emilio Vitolo Jr., who made headlines a few years ago for his brief romantic relationship with Katie Holmes.
Ensconced in a VIP box last weekend, Taylor ecstatically cheered on Travis amid a thicket of friends, including Blake and Sophie.
During last Sunday’s game, Taylor was spotted enjoying some warm moments with Travis’ mom Donna as they watched the Chiefs beat the Jets.
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 heightswhich he co-hosts with his brother and 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.

Taylor then sent her fans into a frenzy on September 24 when she showed up at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City to watch Travis play with the Chiefs.
Decked out in Chiefs colors, Taylor had a place of honor in the VIP box, where she happily cheered Travis on 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.”
Travis’ ex Maya Benberry recently gave an exclusive interview to DailyMail.com, accusing Travis of being unfaithful to her and warning Taylor about him.
“Taylor seems like such a nice girl with a beautiful mind, so I wish her the best of luck, but I wouldn’t be a girly girl if I didn’t advise her to be smart!” Maya said.
“I’m sure by now she’s mastered the ability to tell who’s really there for her – and who’s just using her,” she added knowingly.
Travis’ mother Donna appeared to throw shade at her son’s love interests during an appearance on the Today show on Friday – by brutally downplaying her first meeting with the pop star.
But despite meeting Taylor for the first time at her son’s game against the Bears on Sept. 24 — and then sharing a hug with her in a suite at MetLife Stadium on Oct. 1 — Donna told hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie that she wasn’t. overly enthusiastic about the introduction.
During her interview on the program, the hosts asked Donna about the couple, with Hoda asking if the Bears game was the first time she had been introduced to her son’s girlfriend.

Donna replied, “Yeah, it’s… you know, it’s pretty new, so I don’t like to talk about it. It’s just one of those things where, you know, everyone saw me clearly.
‘I was in the boxes with her. And yeah, it’s just something else that has boosted my life.”
Pressed for more details, Savannah asked, “What was she like?” I mean, so you got to know her a little bit. I have to sit with her for a few games. How was it?’
But Donna was apparently in no mood to be pressured and simply joked, “It was okay.”
