Karma Is the Guy on the Chiefs…
Once her split from actor Joe Alwyn after six year together was confirmed in April, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was ready to shoot his shot with the superstar.
During a July 26 episode of his New Heights podcast, Super Bowl winner shared his failed attempt at meeting the singer during her Eras Tour concert—which ended up catching Swift’s attention nonetheless.
“Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell,” she revealed to TIME. “We started hanging out right after that. So 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.”
So, yes, the pair were dating for a few months before their romance nearly broke the Internet when she appeared at the Sept. 24 Chiefs game. As Swift put it, “We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.”
Unlike her previous relationships, Swift and Kelce haven’t been shy about being photographed together, with Swift attending six games thus far and Kelce traveling to Buenos Aires to attend her Nov. 11 Eras Tour show. And the singer gave her boyfriend a sweet shoutout by changing a lyric in her song “Karma.”
Instead of singing, “Karma is that guy on the screen coming straight home to me,” the pop star replaced the word “screen” with “Chiefs.” After the concert, the pair were spotted kissing off-stage.
