The Taylor and Travis craze continues to gain momentum.
While the latest NFL season kicked off in September, reporters were eager to discuss more than just football when they sat down with Jason Kelce, the Philadelphia Eagles center.
The burning topic on everyone’s minds was the connection between his younger brother, Travis Kelce, the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, and the music sensation Taylor Swift. During a September 20 appearance on a sports radio show, Jason initially played coy, stating, “I don’t really have much insight into Travis’ romantic life.” However, he then seemed to spill the beans, admitting, “Having said that, you know, I think they’re doing really well, and I believe it’s all true, and I hope this relationship goes a long way.” In a puzzling twist, he quickly retracted his comments, saying, “Nah, I’m just joking,” and clarified, “I genuinely don’t have the inside scoop.”
Despite Jason’s apparent reluctance to share, it appears that others are ready to unveil the truth. According to an insider exclusively sharing with Life & Style, “They are trying to keep it low-key, but the speculations about a romance between Taylor and Travis are indeed accurate.” The rumors began when Travis shared a story about his unsuccessful attempt to give Taylor a friendship bracelet with his phone number during her Eras tour stop in Kansas City in July. Fans have been eager to know if he had a second chance to connect with the pop star, and it turns out that he did. “Upon hearing his story, Taylor got hold of his number through her connections and reached out to Travis,” the source disclosed. “They had a secret rendezvous in a private dining room at a restaurant in NYC, and it went exceptionally well. They really hit it off.”
However, the insider reveals to Life & Style that privately, “he’s already confided in some close friends that Taylor could be ‘the one.'” Taylor, who most recently had a fling with The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, 34, in May, following a six-year relationship with actor Joe Alwyn, 32, is equally smitten, according to the source, confessing, “She’s excited about dating an athlete.”
Yet, if their relationship deepens, they might encounter certain challenges, including financial matters.
While Taylor, with a staggering net worth of $600 million, once aspired to be a financial advisor, Travis has reportedly faced tax liens totaling over $200,000 in the past, with more than $65,000 still unpaid, despite signing a $57 million contract in 2020. Additionally, there’s the issue of parenthood. Although “Travis is a wonderful uncle,” as per brother Jason, who is married with three daughters under the age of 4, the source reveals, “he’s not ready to embrace fatherhood.
The idea of being a dad worries Travis, while Taylor is eager to have children.”
However, such discussions are best reserved for the future. For now, as per the source, “They’re simply enjoying each other’s company. Taylor and Travis are taking things one step at a time.”
