And guess who was there to witness it? None other than Kelce himself! 

The two-time Super Bowl champ was caught in a VIP tent with Taylor’s dad, and let me tell you, he couldn’t help but flash that charming smile when Taylor dropped that clever twist on her final song of the night. 

Looks like karma really does have a way of coming back to Taylor, doesn’t it? 

She switched up the lyrics to “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs coming straight home to me” instead of the original “Karma is the guy on the screen coming straight home to me” while performing live at Estadio River Plate. 

During her performances, Taylor would sometimes sing a lyric while pointing at Travis, and let me tell you, that man couldn’t wipe that grin off his face if he tried.

 And let’s not even get started on the finale, honey! Taylor may have changed the lyrics of her last song, but what stole the show was their first public kiss.

Oh yes, we’ve seen them give each other kisses on the cheek and forehead before, but this was the real deal! Picture this: the concert ends, and Taylor runs towards Travis, jumping into his arms while passionately kissing him.

According to Maya, “Once a cheater, always a cheater.” Classic line, right?

This thing called “Tavyvoodo” started doing the rounds on the social media community so as not to let Taylor attend her boyfriend’s games. Well, she could not care less, and guess what she does not. 

The couple had three PDA dates in total and after that, they went on to have a more private relationship as the internet got more obsessed with their romance.

Swift has not only met the mother but also the father of her boyfriend too and it is safe to say that they both like her and have bonded with one another very quickly. 

More Taylor Swift references – Cut Travis some slack!

Adam Schefter from ESPN was up to some mischief! He took those juicy rumors about Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift dating and turned them into his little source of inspiration for reporting.

While fans were busy speculating whether Kelce and Swift were an item, Schefter decided to have a little fun with it during his appearance on ESPN’s SportsCenter, right in the middle of one of Kelce’s games.

The Kansas City Chiefs had listed their 33-year-old NFL tight end as questionable on the injury report after he hyperextended his knee during practice.

Taylor and Travis kiss

Adam used the dating rumors to make some hilarious comments, like:

“It was a bit of a Cruel Summer for Travis Kelce with that knee injury, but he can see the Daylight, Kevin.”

“He looks like he’s Ready For It. And Travis [Kelce] is now on track to play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, despite being limited today.”

In total, he dropped six Taylor Swift song references! Let Kelce catch his breath already!

Kelce brothers comment on Taylor and Travis’s relationship

When the rumors were swirling like a tornado, finally, someone dared to ask Eagles center Jason Kelce about his brother’s love life. 

With a sly grin, Jason responded that he had heard about them but would rather not spill the tea. 

A couple of days later, on Sept. 20, Jason decided to play the jester and claimed that the rumors were “100 percent true” on the WIP Morning Show. 

Then he quickly added that he was joking about the whole thing and had no clue as to what was going on with his brother. 

Taylor is concerned about Travis during one of the games

After being bombarded with Swift-related references by sports commentator Rich Eisen during his NFL GameDay Morning broadcast, the football star finally speaks up. 

The commentator used two of Taylor’s title tracks as a reference to Travis’s romantic bond with the superstar. 

One of them was ‘Shake it off’ and the other one was ‘Look what you made me do’. Kelce replied to Rich comments with a simple  “Well played Rich. … Well played.” 

Taylor and Travis hanging out together

Kelce may have fumbled his attempt to reach out to Swift initially, but he didn’t give up on the second try! 

His smooth moves paid off! Insider reports revealed that these two lovebirds have finally connected and are enjoying each other’s company.

“Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out. She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago” said the source.

Let’s see Travis play! 

So, during this one interview, this guy drops a little hint that Taylor might grace one of his games with her presence. 

But, we were so slow on the uptake, it’s embarrassing! Now, the burning question is, did he even send her an invitation? 

“I threw the ball in her court. I told her, I’ve seen you rock a stage in Arrowhead and you might have to come see me rock the stage at Arrowhead,” Travis said in the interview. 

Taylor’s first appearance at Kelce’s game

“We’ll see what happens in the near future” and it did happen she watched him rock that stadium and Taylor did get her invitation to Kelce’s game.

This appearance of Swift at this game marks her first public date with Kelce, but there is a catch. 

They had already hung out with one another and got to know each other on a different level before making their debut as a ‘couple’ at the game. 

That last bit of information was revealed by Taylor Swift herself during her interview with Times Magazine as she was chosen ‘Person of The Year’. 

When did Taylor and Travis’s relationship start? 

On the night of July 8, everything took a turn. Taylor Swift brought her unforgettable Eras Tour to Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, and let me tell you, it was a night to cherish. 

And you know who else is familiar with that stadium? Travis Kelce is a two-time Super Bowl champion. 

Interestingly, Kelce had crafted a special bracelet for Taylor, but unfortunately, he never had the chance to present it to her. 

Taylor and Travis on their first public date

Travis couldn’t catch up with Taylor backstage since she didn’t speak before or after the concert. 

The reason behind it was that the superstar needed to preserve her voice for the whopping 44 songs she belted out. 

 It’s worth mentioning that Taylor no longer organizes fan meet and greets during the Eras Tour. Although Travis missed meeting her, he couldn’t help but shower praises on her outstanding performance at Arrowhead Stadium. 

“I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” Kelce admits that he was “slightly butthurt” because he couldn’t have a little chit-chat with her. 

“She doesn’t meet anybody—or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personal,” he joked.
