“I wanna be your end game / I wanna be your first string / I wanna be your A-Team,” Taylor Swift, 33, sings on her 2017 Reputation track “End Game.” While those may have just been sports metaphors at the time, it seems Miss Americana is finally getting a taste of the real thing. After splitting with her boyfriend of six years, Joe Alwyn, in the spring, it has been rumored that Swift is testing the waters with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, 33. It was speculated that the pair were talking after Kelce expressed his interest in the singer, and now, fuel has only been added to the fire after Swift was spotted at a Chiefs game on Sunday, Sept. 24, wearing Kansas City gear and getting chummy with Kelce’s mom.
So, who is Kelce? How did he and Taylor first meet? And how long have they known each other? Here’s what we know.
