‘Lucky’ Travis Kelce details how Taylor Swift romance began: She’ll ‘hate me for saying this’

Travis Kelce finally revealed how he and Taylor Swift began their romance – and it wasn’t because of a friendship bracelet.

Although the Kansas City Chiefs tight end did try his best to get her attention during her performance at Arrowhead Stadium, Kelce ultimately made his affections known through someone in her inner circle.

“There were definitely people she knew that knew who I was, in her corner [who said]: ‘Yo! Did you know he was coming?’ I had somebody playing Cupid,” he told WSJ. Magazine in an interview published Monday.

Kelce, 34, wasn’t aware who the matchmaker was but realized his chances had changed when he looked down at his phone one day and saw a text.

He wasn’t aware at the time, however; the revelation only came later, after he looked down at his phone and saw Swift had texted him.

Travis Kelce opened up about the early aughts of his relationship with Taylor Swift.

“[The cupid] told me exactly what was going on and how I got lucky enough to get [Swift] to reach out,” he recalled.

The NFL star also said some of Swift’s family members helped him out without even realizing.

“She’ll probably hate me for saying this, but…when she came to Arrowhead, they gave her the big locker room as a dressing room, and her little cousins were taking pictures…in front of my locker,” he spilled.

Although there was speculation that the “Cruel Summer” singer and Kelce’s first date was her first Kansas City Chiefs game in September, the athlete confirmed they had already gotten dinner before she showed up in the suite.

“When I met her in New York, we had already kind of been talking, so I knew we could have a nice dinner and, like, a conversation, and what goes from there will go from there,” he told the publication.

The “Miss Americana” documentary subject canceled one of her performances in Rio after one of her fans died tragically from the oppressive heat.

“I’m not going to be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it,” Swift wrote in a statement posted to social media.

“I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”
