Shaquille O’Neal has revealed his friend Travis Kelce has not yet confirmed his relationship with Taylor Swift to him – but he believes the pair are a couple.

Swift was not in Minnesota this weekend to watch Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs play, despite attending his last two games.

Their apparent romance has captivated swathes of fans across the United States and beyond and Kelce has not talked down suggestions that they are together when he has spoken to media in the NFL.

But he hasn’t told his friend Shaq that they are together, either, the NBA icon said to The Mirror.

‘I see it all the time when celebrities get together. Travis is a friend of mine, so he hasn’t told me that they are dating,’ O’Neal said.

O’Neal said that both Kelce and swift are ‘great people’ and that he wishes them well 

‘But we all see what seems to be like they are dating, if they are dating. I wish them well. And they’re both great people and I’m happy for them.’

Kelce turned 34 last week and was spotted enjoying a cigarette days before the Chiefs game against the Vikings. The Chiefs were 27-20 winners on Sunday, with Kelce scoring a touchdown but also appearing to get hurt.

He missed practice on Monday and has a brief amount of time to prove he is good to play, with the Chiefs back in action on Thursday night against Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium.

Kelce appeared to slip on the turf and twist his ankle during the second quarter at US Bank Stadium.

After heading to the locker room for x-rays, he returned and got the touchdown that won the game for the Chiefs, who are the current Super Bowl champions.

Speaking about Swift in the build-up to that game, Kelce said: ‘As all the attention comes, it feels like, you know – I was on top of the world after the Super Bowl and right now even more on top of the world now.

‘You have got a lot of people that care about Taylor, for good reason. Got to keep living and learning and enjoying the moments.

‘We’re learning with the paparazzi taking photos all over the place but it comes with it.’
