Swift reveals her relationship status
The New Year’s celebration unfolded shortly after Swift attended the Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium. Swift’s presence at several Chiefs games began in September when Swift and Kelce were seen leaving the stadium together. Confirming their relationship, Swift shared that they were already a couple when she attended her first game.
Swift reflected on the origin of their connection, noting, “This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell.” Referring to a July episode of Kelce’s “New Heights” podcast where he expressed a desire to give Swift a friendship bracelet, she explained they couldn’t meet at the concert but started hanging out shortly after the shout-out went viral.“We actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other,” she told TIME in December 2023.
