Did Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce break up?

A potentially internet-breaking rumor has fans buzzing with one burning question: did megastar musician Taylor Swift and NFL superstar Travis Kelce call it quits?

For nearly a year, Kelce and Swift have been the darlings of the tabloids with their high-profile romance, which began during the 2023 NFL season. The couple went public, with Kelce attending numerous Swift concerts before she reciprocated by cheering him on at his football games, including the 2024 Super Bowl in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their relationship helped make that game the most-watched event in U.S. TV history, drawing over 120 million viewers (per the NFL).

 

Did Taylor Swift & Travis Kelce Break Up?

A new TikTok video from Louisiana State University gymnast Olivia Dunne sparked rumors among fans that NFL champion Travis Kelce and Grammy-winning singer Taylor Swift have broken up. Dunne’s five-second clip, featuring both her and Kelce drinking Accelerator energy drinks, captioned, “I feel like you’re just here for concert tickets,” caused quite a stir. This line, lifted from a reality show, has fans speculating about the status of Kelce and Swift’s relationship.

Adding fuel to the fire, Kelce follows Dunne on Instagram but not Swift. Fans also note it’s been a while since Kelce was spotted at one of Swift’s concerts.

Fortunately for Kelce/Swift fans, these rumors hold no weight. Kelce and Dunne are both brand ambassadors for Accelerator, making their appearance in an advertisement together perfectly reasonable. According to a source from Entertainment Tonight, Swift and Kelce are adept at adjusting their schedules to spend time together whenever possible. They prioritize each other and make significant efforts to ensure they are not apart for long periods, maintaining a strong and committed relationship.

On June 13, Kelce received his third championship ring during the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl ring ceremony. Swift, even while in Liverpool, UK, commented enthusiastically on the livestream of the event, showing her support and affection for Kelce.

Meanwhile, Olivia Dunne has publicly confirmed her relationship with Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Paul Skenes, dispelling any rumors of a romantic link with Kelce.

 

What’s Next for Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift?

Despite the rumors, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce appear to be going strong, with packed schedules ahead.

Kelce is gearing up for his 12th season with the Kansas City Chiefs, aiming to add to his impressive resume that includes three Super Bowl wins and nine All-Pro nominations.

Swift is continuing her record-breaking Eras tour, which began in March 2023 and runs until December 2024. The tour has been a monumental success, with a concert film breaking multiple box office records. She’s also enjoying the success of her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD), which shattered sales records upon its May 2024 release. Additionally, Swift is rumored to play the musical mutant Dazzler in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool & Wolverine, set to release on July 29, further hinting at her involvement with a clever lyrical nod in her song “Clara Bow.”

Through their busy lives, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce show no signs of a breakup, much to the relief of their fans who continue to cheer on their relationship.
