Did Kayla Nicole and Travis Kelce split?
Travis Kelce and Kayla Nicole started dating in 2017, shortly after Kelece broke up with Maya Benberry. They have had a topsy-turvy kind of relationship all throughout.

It seems that in May 2022 the couple actually did end their 5 year long relationship. There were rumors stating that the couple split because Travis Kelce was not happy about splitting finances with Kayla.
However, all rumors were quashed by Kayla Nicole when she finally took to Twitter and posted:
“Not sure where y’all got this nonsense from, but it’s absurd and very false.”
These rumors were also put to rest when Travis Kelce himself denied such claims in January 2023’s ‘The Pivot Podcast’. He was quoted as saying: “don't buy into that.I would never say that I was supporting her. She had a very financially stable life and what she was doing in her career."
He also added "But you've got to be crazy if you'd think I never helped or gave her a couple thousand to grab some food or she gave me some money to go get some food.... we were in a relationship for five years. A hundred dollars here, a hundred dollars there wasn't even thought about."
However, when prodded to answer his current status, Kelce had the following to say: “"I'm in the free market right now. I'm out there just enjoying life, focused on my profession.” This comment from Kelce finally seems to put the issue to bed confirming that the two are no longer a couple.
