Travis Kelce has called Taylor Swift ‘ballsy’ for attending his recent NFL win against the Chicago Bears.
It’s reported that the ‘Midnights’ singer was there on the invitation of Kelce, also 33, as she sat alongside his mother Donna in the viewing suite.
The appearance of Swift came days after Kelce told sports analyst Pat McAfee on his podcast that he had ‘thrown the ball in her court’ after he attended a recent date of her Eras Tour.
Jason, 35, opened the conversation by stating: “We’ve been avoiding this subject out of respect for your personal life — now we’ve got to talk about it.”
To which his younger brother replied: “My personal life that is not so personal. I did this to myself, Jason — I know this.
“I’m on the rollercoaster, man, the rollercoaster of life. I might have noticed a few things, like paparazzi outside my house.
Jason jokingly asked how it felt for him to be ‘put on the map’ by the ‘Cruel Summer’ star, to which the American Football player laid down his answer.
“Shout out to Taylor for pulling up. That was pretty ballsy,” Kelce said.
“I just thought it was awesome how everybody in the suite had nothing but great things to say about her — the friends and family. She looked amazing and everybody was talking about her in great light.
"To see the slow-motion chest bumps, to see the high-fives with mom, to see how, you know, the Chiefs kingdom was all excited that she was there.
“That s**t was absolutely hysterical and it was definitely a game I'll remember, that's for damn sure."
Following the high-profile attendance, the Chiefs player said that he’s now up for keeping hush on their relationship status.
“She’s not in the media as much as I am doing this show every single week and having fun during the NFL season on other guys’ shows,” he said.
“I’m enjoying life and I sure as hell enjoyed this weekend, so everything moving forward, I think me talking about sports and saying ‘All right nah’ will have to be kind of where I keep it.”
