Is Taylor Swift dating NFL star Travis Kelce?
The 33-year-old athlete first sparked Swiftie chatter when he revealed his failed attempt to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it when he attended The Eras Tour in Kansas City.
"I was a little butthurt I didn't get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her," Kelce revealed on the New Heights podcast in July.
Though that appeared to be the end of any potential connection, further speculation has kicked up thanks to a new report from The Messenger that alleged the duo was indeed spending time together.
"Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out," an insider told the outlet. "She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago."
While Kelce plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, the tight end did reveal that he was in New York recently, per a podcast episode from August 31. Kelce initially played coy about how he'd spent his week off before confirming, "I think I was in New York."
Swift, meanwhile, has largely been spending her break from The Eras Tour in the Big Apple.
With the details seemingly adding up and Swifties collectively freaking out, another inside source tells Entertainment Tonight that the pair "are not officially dating."

"she's freed from the chokehold of the British this is like the American Revolution," one Swiftie joked.
"Manifesting Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce being together more than I’m manifesting my own relationship," another wrote.
"can't believe kelce faked a week 1 injury so he could quietly hang out with taylor swift," another fan said.
