Jason Kelce addresses brother Travis Kelce’s rumoured romance with Taylor Swift

There’s been much speculation surrounding Taylor Swift’s rumoured relationship with NFL star Travis Kelce. Now, his brother Jason Kelce has weighed in on whether or not the pair are dating.

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Minnesota Vikings with a score of 34-28 on 14 September. Following their win, Jason appeared on Prime’s Thursday Night Football where he was asked about rumours that his younger brother is dating the Grammy winner.

“I’ve seen these rumors. I cannot comment,” he told co-host Tony Gonzalez. The 35-year-old father of three noted that ever since his brother’s short-lived reality dating series Catching Kelce, which premiered on E! in 2016, “everyone’s been infatuated with Travis’ love life”.

“I don’t really know what’s going on there,” Jason continued. “I know Travis is having fun, we’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”

Jason’s tight-lipped comment comes amid rumours that the Kansas City Chiefs tight end and the “Anti-Hero” singer are “quietly hanging out”.

A report from The Messenger claimed on Tuesday that Kelce and Swift recently hung out when she was in New York City. “Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out,” the source said. “She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago.”

Following the report, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Swift and Kelce are not officially dating. “Travis has been into Taylor for a while and definitely has a crush on her. He is a simple guy that is very funny, charismatic, chill, and loves playing football,” they said.

Back in July, Kelce admitted on his podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, that he tried – and failed – to give Swift his number after attending one of her Eras Tour concerts. The 33-year-old football star revealed that he even made Swift a friendship bracelet, in line with Swiftie tradition, but he was left “disappointed” when things didn’t go according to plan.

“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,” he explained to his brother on their podcast. “So I was a little butthurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”

“If you’re up on Taylor Swift concerts, there are friendship bracelets and I received a bunch of them being there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it,” Kelce said. However, he wasn’t able to meet Swift after the show, and he jokingly told listeners that he “took it personal”.

Most recently, Swift was linked to The 1975 frontman Matty Healy. Prior to their short-lived romance, which came to an end in June, she and British actor Joe Alwyn called it quits after six years of dating.

Meanwhile, Kelce was previously in an on-again, off-again relationship with ex-girlfriend Kayla Nicole for five years. The former couple reportedly ended their long-term relationship in 2022. In January, the Ohio native announced that he was single on The Pivot Podcast. “I’m in the free market right now,” he said. “I’m out there just enjoying life, focused on my profession.”

The Independent has contacted representatives for Swift and Kelce for comment.
