Are Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce Dating?
Rumors began to swirl on September 12 that Taylor and Travis are in the early stages of dating when a source told Page Six that they have been “quietly hanging out.” The insider added that the “Cruel Summer” singer saw Travis just weeks earlier when they were both in New York City. Meanwhile, an additional source told Entertainment Tonight that the pair are not officially dating.
Taylor was photographed wearing a pear-shaped opal necklace pendant when stepping out in New York City on September 8. Travis is a Libra whose birthday is on October 5, making the opal his birthstone. The $1,450 pendant and gold oval push gate come from the jewelry brand Foundrae, according to Page Six, with the brand describing the stone as representing “love.”
“Each pair comes at a time in our lives when something just feels right. These pairs of pears, we absorb them, fuse them into our own hearts, and our heart grows as a result. It’s those pairs we choose to keep; friends, lovers, family, chosen family, a part of our heart forever. Forever and always, perpetually, and unceasingly bound,” the website description continued.
When Did Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce Meet?
It’s not clear when Taylor and Travis first met, though the Ohio native previously expressed his disappointment after he tried and failed to give the “Anti-Hero” singer his phone number when he saw her Eras tour concert in July.
“Well, 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,” Travis explained during the July 26 episode of his “New Heights Show” podcast, which he cohosts with his brother Jason Kelce. “So, I was little butthurt that I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
He then revealed that he planned to give Taylor his phone number in a unique way. “If you’re up on Taylor Swift concerts, there are friendship bracelets, and I received a bunch of them being there [sic],” Travis shared. “But I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it. … She doesn’t meet anybody, or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personal [sic].”
Travis fueled speculation that he might have met Taylor when Jason asked what the “Enchanted” singer would think about his mustache during an August episode of their podcast. “We’re not gonna bring up Taylor Swift,” he said. “But something tells me she’s gonna like it.”
Did Taylor Swift Respond to Travis Kelce’s Podcast Comments?

What Has Jason Kelce Said About Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s Rumored Romance?
Jason was asked about the rumored romance during a postgame interview following the Philadelphia Eagles’ game against the Minnesota Vikings on September 14. While talking to Tony Gonzalez, the NFL analyst asked Jason if he had any information to share.
“So you talk about family,” Tony said. “I have a 15-year-old daughter, and she’s a big fan of a certain pop star, and you have a family member — a brother — and I’ve been hearing rumors, maybe some stuff. Can you comment?”
Travis said he “cannot comment,” though added, “Ever since [Travis’ reality show] Catching Kelce, everybody has been infatuated with Travis’ love life. I don’t really know what’s going on there. I know Trav is having fun. We’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”
The following week, Jason seemingly caught himself before letting too much info slip during an appearance on the WIP Morning Show in Philadelphia. “It is hard to answer because I don’t really know a lot about what is happening in Travis’ love life. I try to, like, keep his business [as] his business and straight out of that world,” he said. “Having said that. … I think it is 100 percent true, and I hope this thing goes a mile — no, I’m joking, I don’t know what’s happening.”
