On Sunday, October 22, Taylor Swift made a public display of her support for her friend Travis Kelce by wearing a sweet friendship bracelet during an NFL game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. The singer, 33, attended the game at Missouri’s Arrowhead Stadium, where she watched Travis Kelce, 34, in action.
The bracelet in question was a gold beaded one, adorned with four white beads. These beads held special significance; they featured a heart, the number 87, and another heart. The number 87 corresponds to Kelce’s jersey number, and the heartfelt gesture was a clear indicator of their close friendship. Swift also sported additional jewelry, including a delicate gold chain with an emerald centerpiece and a diamond bracelet on the same wrist.
Friendship bracelets have played a notable role in Taylor Swift’s life, particularly in connection with her bond with Travis Kelce. Earlier in the year, Kelce had created a beaded wristlet for Swift when he attended one of her concerts at Arrowhead Stadium. However, he had expressed his disappointment in not having the opportunity to personally hand it to her, as the pop sensation refrains from speaking before or after her shows to protect her voice.
Kelce had previously revealed his desire to gift Swift a bracelet with his number on it. On his podcast, “New Heights,” he expressed his feelings, saying, “I wanted to give Taylor Swift [a bracelet] with my number on it.” He humorously added, “I was a little butt-hurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
The unique aspect of this friendship is the blend of Swift’s world of music and Kelce’s world of professional football. Kelce invited Swift to one of his games and playfully suggested that she should witness him “rock the stage” at Arrowhead Stadium, as she does with her concerts.
Swift took him up on the offer and made her first appearance at a Kansas City Chiefs game in September 2023, cheering them on to victory from the Kelce family’s private suite. This marked the beginning of their blossoming romance, which has been heating up with each passing day.
Swift’s attendance at the game on October 22 was her fourth time watching Kelce play, a testament to her support for both him and his team. The pair has also been spotted on cozy date nights in New York City, including instances where they were seen holding hands.
Sources close to the couple say that their relationship is thriving, with Swift falling for Kelce in a unique and special way. According to an insider, Kelce goes out of his way to make Swift feel cherished and valued, setting their relationship apart from any others she has experienced. As their story continues to unfold, fans and onlookers are eager to see what the future holds for this dynamic duo.
