Taylor Swift cheers alongside Travis Kelce’s mom at Chiefs game
Video of Swift standing next to Donna Kelce in a suite at Arrowhead Stadium, later leaving with the NFL star flooded social media on Sunday.
Adding fuel to rumors that she might be dating star tight end Travis Kelce. Pop sensation Taylor Swift attended the Kansas Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday,
Swift, 33, was sitting with Kelce’s mother, Donna, in a clip Fox Sports posted just as the Chiefs’ game against the Chicago Bears kicked off. She was decked out in red and white, cheering the Chiefs on, according to the video.
One of the Fox Sports game commentators noted that Swift in the crowd with Kelce’s mother, saying the crowd in their suite seemed to be having a great time.
Video of the singer appearing to shout “Let’s f—— go!” after a Kelce touchdown flooded social media.
As much as Swift’s appearance might have grabbed the attention of social media, it did little to make the game any more competitive or entertaining as the Chiefs went on to a 41-10 smackdown of the visiting Bears.
The contest was so one-sided, 34-0 at halftime, that much of the country that had been watching it on their local Fox affiliate was switched to the Cowboys-Cardinals game as Arizona pulled a major upset.
As announcers at the Bears-Chiefs signed off at that game, viewers were shown footage of Kelce pumping his fist in celebration and Swift jumping out of her seat, throwing her hands up to signal a touchdown
After the game, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was asked if he felt pressure to get the ball to Kelce because the singer was present.

“I heard she was in the house. I felt a little bit of pressure,” Mahomes said, laughing. “So I knew I had to get it to Trav. … I think he wanted to get in the end zone just as much as the Swifties wanted him to.”
Later, video of Kelce and Swift leaving together was posted on X by Chicago sports media personality Jarrett Payton.
Speculation about Swift and Kelce, 33, a two-time Super Bowl champion, began when he attended the Eras Tour over the summer.
Kelce joked in a podcast with his brother, Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles, that he tried to give her a friendship bracelet with his number on it.
“I threw the ball in her court. I told her I’ve seen you rock a stage in Arrowhead. You might have to come see me rock the stage at Arrowhead,” Kelce said. “We’ll see what happens in the near future.”
By no means is Swift’s appearance confirmation that the two are dating, but it certainly set the internet ablaze. A source close to Swift said that she and Kelce are hanging out and that it was still early stages.
A representative for Swift did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Kelce’s brother, Jason, deflected the question when he was asked about the rumors on an Amazon Prime postgame show.
“I don’t really know what’s going on there,” he said. “I know Trav is having fun. We’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”
