Taylor Swift’s whirlwind romance with Travis Kelce has gripped America – and Swifties around the world – in the last month.
And while it was widely believed to be the NFL star Kelce that instigated the romance after publicly revealing how he failed to give her his number at her Eras show in his home city, it actually appears that she made the first move.
According to Yahoo Entertainment, Swift ‘cautiously reached out’ to the Kansas City Chiefs player after he told his brother Jason about failing to get his number to the pop star – which he put on a friendship bracelet he made for her – and she found the tale ‘adorable’.
Kelce explained on New Heights in July: ‘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, so I was a little butthurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.
‘She doesn’t meet anybody — or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personal.
Taylor Swift reportedly made the first move to spark her romance with NFL star Travis Kelce
Swift has been at four Chiefs games in the last month to cheer Kelce on when he is playing
Kelce had revealed on his podcast how he failed to get his number to Swift after an Eras show
‘I’ve only seen Arrowhead filled like that for Chiefs games with that much excitement, and everybody was dressed in pink and purple going crazy for her. It was wild. It was a wild show.’
The publication says Swift reached out after hearing the tale and it led to their first date in New York – where they have been seen on numerous occasions since.
Swift then returned to Arrowhead Stadium on September 24 to cheer Kelce and the Chiefs on against Chicago Bears – confirming their links after speculation had started to intensify.
She has been to four of his games overall, three in Kansas City and another in New York, when the Chiefs beat the Jets on October 1.
But for now, Swift’s football Era is on hold and she turns her attention back to touring.
She will miss Sunday’s game in Denver against the Broncos to focus on her upcoming dates in Argentina and Brazil, starting in Buenos Aires on November 9.
