Travis Kelce has heaped praise on ‘ballsy’ Taylor Swift for keeping her word and coming to his Chiefs game on Sunday – and says she ‘looked amazing’ in his suite.
Their new romance stunned the world this week, but until now neither had publicly discussed their situation after they were spotted leaving Arrowhead Stadium together in his vintage convertible.
He speaks with his brother Jason about the latest episode of their popular film New heights podcast, Travis has now finally broken his silence and addressed “the roller coaster of life,” saying, “Shout out to Taylor for quitting. That was pretty rowdy.
“I just loved that everyone in the suite had only good things to say about her. The friends and family. She looked great, everyone talked about her in a great light.
‘Plus, the day went perfectly for Chiefs fans. We script it all, ladies and gentlemen. It was just impressive.”

Taylor went viral all afternoon and evening after being pictured with Donna Kelce, as the pair laughed and chatted throughout the game.
‘To see the slow motion chest bumps, to see the high fives with mom, to see the Chiefs kingdom all excited that she was there, that s*** was absolutely hysterical, it was definitely a game I will remember, that’s for sure,” Travis added. “And then we ended up just sneaking off in the getaway car…”
“Shout out to Taylor for coming over and seeing me rocking out on stage.”
The days since have been something of a whirlwind for Travis and Taylor, with the entire world desperate for more information about their romance.
Travis himself is a big name in the world of the NFL, but his romance with Taylor has taken him to the next level: now the paparazzi are gathered in front of his house.
“They all have a British accent or something European,” he joked on the podcast, before his brother Jason asked how he knew they were paparazzi.

“They have a camera in their hands and are shouting my name,” was the response.
What will happen next is something everyone is dying to know… but Travis seems to be keeping tight-lipped about the next steps.
“I know I got all this attention focused on me, I’m the one who did the whole friendship bracelet thing and told everyone how sad I was that I didn’t get to meet Taylor,” he began. “You’re 100% missing shots you don’t take, baby.
“What’s real is that it’s my personal life. I want to respect both our lives. She’s not in the media as much as I do this show every week and have fun during the NFL season doing other guys’ shows like the McAfee show and every other show I do from now on.
“As you said during that game on Thursday evening, I enjoy life and I certainly enjoyed this weekend. So moving forward, I think talking about sports and saying ‘okay now’ is going to have to be kind of my thing.”
Since Sunday night’s game, Kelce has received a tremendous amount of attention, so much so that sales of his jersey have increased 400%.

Jason broke that news to his brother on the podcast, who responded, “400 percent? Jesus! Looks like the Swifties are part of Chiefs Kingdom too!
“Literally everyone (has talked about it), even Bill Belichick. He didn’t talk about me much outside of the game weeks we played… and he reminded me that that was the best catch I ever had in my life. Hilarious.
“And then Coach Reid told everyone he’s Cupid. He has manifested this all the time.”
When asked if there was any truth to that particular rumor, he added: ‘Ahhhh. I don’t even know how to answer that. I know he’s met the Swift family before, so I don’t know, he could have been in the background the whole time… who would have thought Cupid was that big?’
