Travis Kelce has finally broken his silence about his rumored romance with Taylor Swift, revealing that he has invited the pop superstar to watch him play a game for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Kelce’s apparent affair with Swift has been the talk of the internet over the past week, but until now the Chiefs star has declined to comment – with most of the information coming from his brother Jason.
“It’s hilarious how much traction this actually has,” he revealed live the Pat McAfee Show. “I think right now it’s like that old school game, ‘Telephones,’ where everyone just whispers in each other’s ears and hears some random things…no one really knows what’s going on.
“Especially when Jason Kelce is on national television telling both sides… he doesn’t know, it’s true, it’s this and that. He goes on Thursday Night Football and the first thing he brings up is “Catching Kelce,” and less than a week later he tells everyone it’s 100 percent true.
‘That man is ridiculous, he can’t stay out of the headlines. He was on the show yesterday and said everyone thinks he’s the Ian Rapoport of my dating relationships… everyone, please stop asking my brother about my love life.”

Then it was Kelce’s turn to reveal the news from the horse’s mouth, as he revealed that he had spoken to the pop star – and given her a very tempting invitation.
“It’s life, honey,” he continued. “I threw it over there, I threw the ball into her court. I said, “I’ve seen you rock the stage at Arrowhead, maybe you should come see me rock the stage at Arrowhead, see which one’s a little more lit.”
‘We’ll see what happens in the near future. Okay, nuwwww.”
The news was received with loud cheers from the panel of McAfee’s show, as the team wished him luck in his search for music’s most famous face.
Until Thursday afternoon, all news about the possible romance between two-time Super Bowl winner Kelce, 33, and pop sensation Swift, also 33, were rumors spread in the media or by his brother Jason.
Earlier this month it was reported that they were “hanging out quietly,” and that’s when Eagles center Jason admitted on the WIP morning show that he believed the news was “100 percent true.”
“I think it’s going well and I think it’s 100 percent true,” the 35-year-old said.

“I don’t really know much about what’s going on in Travis’ love life. You know, his business is his business and I try to stay out of that world,” he added.
Travis, who previously dated influencer and broadcaster Kayla Nicole, was first linked to Swift earlier this month.
It was reported that they hung out when the Midnights hitmaker visited New York a few weeks ago. the messenger reported last week.
Kelce, who made his season debut on Sunday, scoring a touchdown in the Chiefs’ 17-9 win over the Jaguars, first tried to hook up with Swift when her Eras tour arrived in Kansas City over the summer.
He revealed on his New Heights podcast with Jason that he tried to get the singer a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it.
Travis had an on-again, off-again relationship with influencer Kayla Nicole for five years, until 2022
“So I was a little disappointed that I couldn’t get her one of the bracelets I made for her,” Travis said.
“She’s not meeting anyone, or at least she didn’t want to meet me. So I took it personally.”
Jason jokingly surmised that Swift, who is from Pennsylvania, refused to meet Travis because of her known fondness for the Eagles.
She even references her “Eagles t-shirt hanging on the door” in her song Gold Rush from Evermore, her ninth studio album.
