Did Kayla Nicole and Travis Kelce split?

Travis Kelce and Kayla Nicole started dating in 2017, shortly after the two-time Super Bowl Champion broke up with Maya Benberry. They have had a topsy-turvy kind of relationship all throughout. In August 2020, the couple split for a brief period. Kayla rubbished rumors of Travis’ infidelity as the reason for the split. The two seemed to have taken a few months off from their relationship, during which Nicole deleted pictures of the two from her social media posts, but reunited later in the year. She was spotted at a Chiefs game in November 2020, cheering her beau in the team’s colors, confirming their relationship status.

It seems that in May 2022 the couple actually did end their 5 year long relationship. There were rumors stating that the couple broke up 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 put the issue to bed confirming that the two are no longer a couple.

How Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift exactly met is still a question lacking clarity. However, we do know the events leading up to their meeting. Apparently, in July 2023, Travis Kelce attended Taylor Swift's Eras concert tour at Arrowhead Stadium and watched the show from his private box. He had wanted to give her a friendship bracelet and his number but failed to do so. He then managed to get in touch with some people around the celebrated singer and it seems that these people helped set him up with Swift.

In addition to all this, there are multiple sources who can stake a claim for setting up the two famous personalities. It seems that actor Miles Teller is quite close to both of them and could have played Cupid between the two. On the other hand, the brother (Kameron Saunders) of former Chiefs player Khalen Saunders, was one of the backup dancers for Swifts' Eras tour.

Then there is NFL broadcaster Erin Andrews, who urged Swift to go out with the NFL star during an episode of her podcast in August even though the two are not direct friends.
