Singer Taylor Swift was spotted with her arms wrapped around football player Travis Kelce at a restaurant, celebrating Travis’s team’s victory on Sunday night.
In a series of photos recently published by TMZ, Taylor and Travis appeared affectionate and joyful together. They were seated at the bar, chatting with friends of the 33-year-old athlete. Both of them seemed comfortable displaying intimate gestures during their first public outing.
According to sources, Travis Kelce rented out the entire rooftop restaurant of a building in Kansas City to host a victory celebration with Taylor Swift, friends, and family. “Taylor was in a denim dress, enjoyed light snacks, sipped cocktails, and danced with Travis,” a witness shared.
Prior to this, Taylor Swift was in the stands cheering on Travis Kelce during his game. She sat next to Travis’s mother, giving her full support. The result of the match saw Travis’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs, defeating the Chicago Bears with a score of 41-10.
Taylor and Travis first crossed paths when the American football star attended one of Taylor’s concerts back in July. Travis revealed on a podcast that he had tried to meet Taylor to give her his phone number on a bracelet but hadn’t succeeded. However, after the interview, it seems they managed to connect, and Taylor accepted his invitation to watch him play. When the game concluded, Taylor left the stadium with Travis.
According to an insider, Taylor and Travis are currently ‘very affectionate with each other but are keeping things light.’ ‘They’re not rushing into a serious relationship, just enjoying life together. Both are focused on their careers, and that’s their top priority right now,’ the source said.
Taylor Swift ended her five-year relationship with actor Joe Alwyn earlier this year. She had a brief fling with British singer Matty Healy, which ended in June.
