Taylor Swift and NFL star Travis Kelce have reportedly been seeing each other for a few weeks.
The “Cruel Summer” songstress and the hunky football player allegedly linked up after Kelce tried — and failed — to give Swift his phone number at one of her recent Eras Tour concerts, according to the Messenger.
“Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out,” an insider told the outlet. “She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago.”
Reps for Kelce and Swift, both 33, did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Although neither star has directly addressed the romance rumors, Kelce confirmed that he was recently in New York during the Aug. 31 episode of his “New Heights” podcast.
When brother Jason Kelce asked what he did over the weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end tried to play coy about his whereabouts.
“What did I do?” Travis mused. “I can’t remember. I don’t think I did much.”
Yet when pressed by his older brother, Travis admitted that he “disappeared.”
“I think I was up in New York,” he added, before quickly changing the subject.
Elsewhere in the episode, the brothers were discussing Travis’ mustache when Jason asked whether or not he “found out what Taylor Swift thinks” of his new look.
“Um, yeah we are not going to bring up Taylor Swift in this episode,” Travis, who became noticeably flustered, replied with a laugh. “But something tells me she is going to like it.”

The cheeky comment came just over one month after the two-time Super Bowl champion revealed that he had planned to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his number ahead of her show in Kansas City.
“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,” he said on the podcast.
“So, I was a little butthurt that I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
The football star explained that exchanging friendship bracelets was a big thing amongst Swifties, which was where he took inspiration from.
“If you’re up on Taylor Swift concerts there are friendship bracelets and I received a bunch of them being there but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it,” he said with a sly smile.
When Jason, who is a center for the Philadelphia Eagles, asked whether his younger brother meant his jersey number or his phone number, Travis quipped back, “You know which one.”
“She doesn’t meet anybody — or at least she didn’t want to meet me,” Travis added. “So, I took it personal.”
While it’s unclear exactly when Swift caught wind of Travis’ sweet gesture, it looks like it eventually paid off.
She and the “Harriet” actor were together for six years before calling it quits at the beginning of 2023
