- Travis Kelce is an NFL superstar
- He is rumoured to be dating Taylor Swift
- THESE are his past lovers
Two months prior, Kelce had revealed he tried and failed to give Swift his phone number at one of her Eras Tour concerts. The A-listers then seemingly confirmed the speculation when Swift was spotted cheering for Kelce in his suite alongside his mother at a Kansas City Chiefs game on Sept. 24, 2023. We don't show up for a football game with someone's mother unless you are dating them.
But who are the ladies that spent time with Travis before? Here now is a quick look at Travis' past romantic history, and it really is quite a list.
Taylor and Travis sitting in a tree...
In 2016, Kelce took a chance on love and starred on his own E! dating reality show titled, 'Chasing Kelce' where 50 women, one from each state in the United States competed for his heart. The show became quite popular online, making Travis a known ladies man. The athlete ended up choosing the contestant from Kentucky, Maya Benberry, despite having his doubts.
"I love your confidence, but, at times, it does get overconfident," he told her at the time, according to the US Sun. "It kind of shows arrogance. I have been attracted to women like that my entire life and those relationships didn’t work because of that." Maybe that's why he likes Taylor. She's not exactly humble.
He ultimately went with his heart over his head and chose Benberry as his winner. The two dated for just a few months before breaking up for unknown reasons. Seven years later, Kelce reflected on his reality TV days and admitted that, while it sounded like a good idea at the time, he’s not so sure anymore.
"It was extremely awkward because I really didn’t have much to say about what we were doing on the show," he said on 'The Pivot Podcast.' He recalled "having so much fun buying whatever the hell I wanted to” that he saw the show as an opportunity to “make six figures in two weeks."
So, it was all about the money then. A year later, Kelce dated sports broadcaster and model Kayla Nicole from 2017 to May 2022. The ex-couple began dating after Kelce flirted with her on Instagram by following her, liking pictures as she posted them and watching all of her Instagram Stories, he explained to E! News in February 2022.
"I was just stalking her and then finally on New Year’s, she gave in. And, you know, New Year, new me. She just shot her shot, jumped in my DMs and the rest is history," he recalled.
They split for the first time in 2020, and then decided to give their relationship another shot a few months later, but they broke up for good in May 2022. Neither one gave a reason publicly for the split, but they denied a 'Barstool Sports' report that claimed it was because he made her "pay half of everything."
A few months after Nicole and Kelce called it quits for good, he sparked romance rumours with 'Access Hollywood' correspondent Zuri Hall. But that never confirmed or denied. And now going to 2023, he has Taylor Swift in his corner.
Will this romance go the distance, or will Travis end up another lyric in Taylor's extensively long list of breakup songs.
