Taylor Swift went absolutely wild celebrating new beau Travis Kelce’s touchdown reception as his Kansas City Chiefs obliterated the visiting Chicago Bears on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
Kelce’s touchdown grab came early in the second half when Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes found him in the back of the end zone for an easy three-yard score, which pushed the lead to 41-0.
Following his touchdown, cameras cut to Kelce’s suite, where Swift appeared to mouth the words ‘lets f***ing go,’ as she celebrated.
Swift, 33, was pictured in the stands wearing a red-and-white jersey – the colors of the Chiefs – and was laughing and joking with Kelce’s mother Donna throughout the game. The Chiefs were clearly excited about their new celebrity fan, tweeting out ‘Welcome to Chiefs Kingdom, Taylor Swift’ alongside a video of her cheering for the team.
The pair have recently been romantically linked and the Chiefs tight end did little to play the rumors down this week, admitting he had invited her to watch him play. And this is the weekend she has taken him up on the offer, with Swift currently enjoying a break between dates of her incredibly popular Eras Tour.

She was seen on camera enthusiastically shouting and applauding before the start of the game, with Kelce one of the star players for the Chiefs – the current Super Bowl champions.
Swift appeared to endure an array of emotions during the game, cheering away but also looking tense during other moments of the game against the Bears. Soon enough though, the quality of the Chiefs began to show and they led 34-0 at halftime and the tense moments were all but forgotten.
‘It’s life, baby,’ Kelce said on the Pat McAfee show earlier this weeks about getting Swift to watch him play. ‘I threw it out there, I threw the ball in her court.
‘I said, “I’ve seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead, you might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead, and see which one’s a little more lit. We’ll see what happens in the near future. Alright, nowwwww.’
The Chiefs, who won the Super Bowl last season, have won one and lost one so far this time around.
Kelce was pictured warming up with his teammates in a sunny Kansas City and was seen deep in talks with quarterback and star player Patrick Mahomes before the start.
He was mocked by fans on social media as he arrived for the game wearing a curious matching blue-and-white jacket and trousers. Chiefs fans said that Kelce, who is known for his flamboyant dress sense, looked like he had been painting his house before the game.
Fans in the stadium clearly wondered if Swift would be there too. One Cheifs supporter was seen holding up a sign saying ‘Is Taylor here?’.
It was reported earlier this month that they had been ‘quietly hanging out,’ and then Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce – Travis’s older brother – admitted on the WIP Morning Show that he believed the news to be ‘100 percent true.’
‘I think things are going great and I think it’s 100 percent true,’ he said. ”I don’t really know a lot about what’s happening in Travis’s love life. You know, his business is his business and I try to stay out of that world.’
Ironically, the Travis Kelce and the Chiefs won last year’s Super Bowl against Jason Kelce and the Eagles.

Mom Donna shot to fame for her split loyalties and wore a 50-50 jersey for the game that was mix of both team’s colors.
But now, she is inadvertently more famous than ever before given that she is shoulder-to-shoulder with Swift for today’s game.
Travis, who previously dated influencer and broadcaster Kayla Nicole, was first linked to Swift earlier this month.
The Chiefs star first tried to link up with Swift when her Eras tour came to Kansas City in the summer.
He revealed on his New Heights podcast with Jason that he attempted to give the songstress a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it.

‘So, I was a little butthurt that I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her,’ Travis said.
‘She doesn’t meet anybody — or at least she didn’t want to meet me. So, I took it personal.’
Jason jokingly guessed that Swift, who hails from Pennsylvania, refused to meet with Travis because of her known fondness for the Eagles.
She even references her ‘Eagles t-shirt hanging from the door,’ in her song Gold Rush from Evermore, her ninth studio album.
