One of the top storylines of the NFL season has been the rumored relationship between Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and pop star, Taylor Swift. On Thursday, Kelce spoke some about the pairing, including how things came to be.
Kelce was a guest on The Pat McAfee Show on Thursday and was given the floor to set the record straight.
After talking about comments made by his brother, Philadelphia Eagles star Jason Kelce, Kelce was then asked if he hated all of the attention. He quickly refuted that notion, saying, “No, I mean, it’s life, baby. It’s life,” before jumping into his version of how things got started.
“I threw it out there, I threw the ball in her court. You know, I told her, maybe, ‘I’ve seen you rock the stage at Arrowhead. You might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead and see which one’s a little more lit.’ So, we’ll see what happens in the near future.”
We GOTTA ask about you and Taylor Swift..
"I told her that I've seen her rock a stage in Arrowhead and she might have to come see me rock the stage at Arrowhead..

Not that New Heights needs the help, but as a podcaster, my only thought while watching this was, “SAVE IT FOR YOUR OWN SHOW.” https://t.co/krMWpdO2wB
