Travis previously appeared on a reality dating show and was subsequently in an on-again, off-again relationship with Kayla Nicole for five years.
Travis has been spending time with Taylor Swift after attending her ‘Eras Tour’.
Two-time Super Bowl champion Travis Kelce is one of the biggest stars in the NFL right now. And he’ll become even more famous if the rumors about Travis, 33, and Taylor Swift, 33, are true. On September 12, The Messenger reported through a source that the footballer and the “Style” singer “have been quietly dating.” Earlier this summer, Travis revealed that he tried and failed by giving Taylor his number on his Eras Tour.
Before the news about Travis and Taylor came out, Travis had to miss the Chiefs’ first game of the 2023-2024 season due to injury. Travis led the Chiefs to victory during Super Bowl LVII against the Philadelphia Eagles, whom his brother Jason plays for. Before their 2023 win, the last time the Chiefs were in the Super Bowl was in 2021, when they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During that game, Travis had his longtime love, Nicolas Kayla, in the stands cheering him on. However, before Super Bowl LVII, the couple separated. “I’m on the open market right now,” Travis said on The Pivot podcast in January 2023. “I’m out there just enjoying life, focused on my profession. I’ve got my feet up outside of football.”
Travis previously appeared on a reality dating show in 2016, so his love life has certainly been in the public eye. Now that the Travis Kelce-Taylor Swift rumors are circulating, learn more about the other women he’s been linked to here.
Travis began playing for the KC Chiefs during the 2013 season, but during his early years on the team, he was also a reality star. Travis appeared on E! 2016. reality show, Catching Kelce, where he dated several women in hopes of finding his person. Travis hoped to find his soulmate on the show and went out with a woman from each state to get there. In the end, he chose Maya Benberry from Kentucky.
Catching Kelce aired during the fall of 2016, but was filmed several months earlier (Maya confirmed that the finale was filmed in April 2016). Before the show aired, Travis confirmed that he and his final choice were still together, but they weren’t yet to the point of talking about an engagement or marriage. Once the finale finally aired, Maya said. Kentucky.com things were still going well. “Now we’re just hanging out in real life,” he explained. “For me and him, it feels like a fresh start.”
Unfortunately, that new beginning didn’t last long. Travis and Maya split at the end of 2016, so their entire relationship lasted about eight months. The following May, Travis’ relationship with Kayla was confirmed, with TMZ reporting that the two had been dating for six months at the time. In a since-deleted tweet — captured by The Shadow Room — Maya appeared to accuse Travis of cheating on her with Kayla. “When you and your ex broke up five months ago but find out through social media that he’s allegedly been in another relationship for 6…” Maya supposedly wrote. She also claimed that he texted her in February 2017 and told her he was single. HollywoodVida cannot independently confirm whether there actually was any overlap.
Today, Maya works as a beauty blogger and life coach. Her blog, Moments with Maya, aims to help users “create [their] ideal reality” and “the life [they] rightly deserve.” She has more than 145,000 followers on Instagram.
TMZ confirmed Kayla and Travis’ relationship in May 2017. However, the couple began talking months earlier, which Kayla confirmed via Instagram, according to Page Six. In March 2022, Kayla made an “Ask Me Anything” on her Instagram Story and answered a question about the beginning of her relationship with Travis. “He had been following me and flirting instantly for a few months,” Kayla revealed. “All double taps and no DM. So after a little liquid courage and some pep talk from [friend] (kind of like WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?), I texted him on New Year’s Eve.”
Things were going well for the couple for three years and their relationship was very much in the public eye. From the ESPY Awards to the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards and more, Kayla and Travis attended several high-profile events as a couple over the years. He was also there to support Travis and the Chiefs when they won the 2020 Super Bowl.
However, in August 2020, fans began to wonder if Travis and Kayla had split up, as they unfollowed each other on Instagram. At that point, rumors began to circulate that Travis had cheated on Kayla, leading to the breakup. In a tweet that was later deleted, he denied the allegations but confirmed the split. “This is fake news… a lie… and they’re not the reason Kayla and I broke up,” he wrote. “Take all your hatred somewhere else, please.”
However, just a few months later, in December 2020, Travis confirmed that he and Kayla had gotten back together. While talking about his holiday plans, Travis revealed that his “girlfriend Kayla” was one of the people on his holiday list. Kayla then proved that romance was back by celebrating a Chiefs playoff win on her IG Story. He was also there to cheer on Travis when he played in the 2021 Super Bowl a few weeks later (unfortunately, the Chiefs lost).
In March 2022, Travis and Kayla were going strong as they attended Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews’ wedding together. However, sometime before the end of the year, the two broke up. Rumors of a split first surfaced in late May 2022. At the time, an allegation was circulating that Kayla ended the relationship because Travis “kept making her pay for everything during the five years they were dating.” Kayla took to Twitter to debunk this rumor, writing, “I’m not sure where they got this nonsense, but it’s absurd and very false.” Kayla’s tweet didn’t make it clear if the breakup part of the rumor was also false and the exact timing of their split is unclear. However, by early summer, they had deleted all of each other’s photos on Instagram.
During his January 2023 pivot interview, Travis also addressed the rumor. “How crazy is that?” he asked. “Don’t believe that shit! I would never say I was supporting her. He had a very stable life financially and what he was doing in his career. You have to be crazy if you think I never helped her or gave her a couple of dollars to buy some food or she gave me some money… We were in a relationship for five years. A hundred dollars here and a hundred dollars there weren’t even thought of, which is ridiculous.”
While neither has officially said anything, the couple sparked reunion rumors in July 2023 when Brittany Mahomes posted a video of them together at a launch event for Patrick Mahomes’ Netflix documentary, according to Newsweek. Despite some reports that they’re back together, neither has confirmed if they’re really a couple again.
Kayla holds a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from Pepperdine University and works as a camera host for several sports sites. She has also dabbled in modeling and has competed in various beauty pageants. During her run in the pageant, Kayla was named first runner-up in Miss Malibu 2013 and placed in the top 10 of Miss California in 2012.
Once Travis was confirmed to be single in the fall of 2022, fans started talking about who he would date next. In October, one of Travis’ friends posted a video with Hollywood correspondent, Zuri Hall, and fans saw Travis in the background. She was also seen sitting in a suite at a Kansas City Chiefs game around the time. Fans also claim that Zuri and Travis’ ex, Kayla, unfollowed each other on social media.
This seems to be nothing more than a fan rumor that skyrocketed a bit when it was picked up by some online media outlets. Zuri and Travis have not confirmed that there was anything romantic between them, and in January 2023, he revealed that he was single.
Zuri is a popular entertainment host who has worked for MTV, ¡MI! and more, in addition to his current work with Accede a Hollywood. She also works as a reporter for the American Ninja Warrior and has hosted the Miss USA pageant.
Travis and Taylor have been linked since The Courier reported on Sept. 12 that the two “have been quietly dating.” A source told the outlet that she “saw him when he was in New York a few weeks ago.” Travis went on Taylor’s Eras Tour over the summer and talked about how he tried to shoot the pop star on the July 26 episode of his podcast. New heights.
“I was a little hurt that I couldn’t give her one of the bracelets I made her,” Travis said. “I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it.” He then revealed that he took the rejection “personally” after not being able to meet Taylor. “She doesn’t know anyone or at least didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personally,” Travis also said. His older brother and podcast co-host Jason poked fun at Travis, saying Taylor is “a huge Eagles fan.”
