Travis Kelce’sand Taylor Swift’s romance has come a long way since the NFL star put his phone number on a friendship bracelet.

When Kelce, 34, was asked to name the “most famous person” in his contacts in a Monday, January 8, TikTok for the Kansas City Chiefs, the tight end didn’t try to downplay Swift’s celebrity status. “You already know the easy [answer],” he said, seemingly referring to the 34-year-old Grammy winner.

After he was told not to give the “easy answer,” Kelce named Justin Timberlake as the biggest A-lister in his phone before admitting that the former boybander probably wouldn’t pick up if he rang. “No, not a chance,” Kelce quipped. “And I appreciate you Justin, but he’s a busy man.”

Following the light-hearted exchange, fans quickly took to the comments section to share their thoughts on Kelce choosing Timberlake, 42, over Swift. Some wanted the athlete to answer the question again – “REDO THIS WITH THE EASY ANSWER,” one person wrote – while others were curious exactly how Swift would pop up her boyfriend’s contact list.

Once upon a time, several eras ago, Taylor Swift assembled a coalition of models, actresses and musicians for the “Bad Blood” music video, which premiered at the Billboard Music Awards in May 2015. Some of the featured stars were Swift’s besties, like her to-this-day ride-or-die Selena Gomez and her who-knows-what-exactly-happened-there former friend Karlie Kloss. Other […]

May 2015

Swift revealed that “You Are in Love” – particularly the line “you’re my best friend” – was inspired by Antonoff’s relationship with then-girlfriend Lena Dunham. “I’ve never had that [in a relationship], so I wrote that song about things that Lena has told me about her and Jack,” Swift told Elle. “That’s just basically stuff she’s told me. And I think that that kind of relationship – God, it sounds like it would just be so beautiful – would also be hard. It would also be mundane at times.” (Antonoff and Dunham split in 2018 after five years together.)

The twosome celebrated after 1989 won Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. “We wrote and worked on 1989 in the tiniest spaces,” Antonoff wrote via Instagram after the ceremony, alongside a photo of Swift giving him an emotional hug. “A lot of time over voice notes and email – it really encourages me that those small dream like ideas between friends can become album of the year. winning a grammy for records you make the same way you did when u were a kid is important to me.”

Swift surprised the world – then hunkered down amid the coronavirus pandemic – with her eighth studio album, Folklore. While the album featured production from new collaborator Aaron Dessner of The National, Antonoff worked on seven tracks, including “Betty” and “August.”

March 2021

Folklore won Album of the Year at the Grammys, making Swift the first woman to win that award three times (she also won for Fearless in 2010). “And @taylorswift, from 1989 to here … goddamn. you are the one who let me produce records first,” Antonoff wrote via Instagram after the ceremony. “Before you i just ‘wasn’t a producer’ according to the herbs. i just wasnt let in that room. then i met you, we made out of the woods and you said, ‘that’s the version’ and that changed my life right there.”

November 2021

Swift dropped her second rerecorded album, Red (Taylor’s Version), which once again featured Antonoff production on the “From the Vault” tracks – including “All Too Well (10 Minute Version).” After the album’s release, Antonoff gushed in an Instagram post that he is “endlessly inspired” by Swift. “Nothing better than taylor … the artist and the person,” he added.

February 2022

Antonoff defended Swift after Blur frontman Damon Albarn claimed that she doesn’t write her own songs. “I don’t care if Damon Albarn or anyone likes or doesn’t like something,” he said during an interview on “The What” podcast. “But to unequivocally make a statement that isn’t true, that you actually have no idea about, and not to get too deep on it? Isn’t that kind of everything that’s wrong with our world at the moment? People talking about s–t that they have no clue about?”

Travis Kelce hasn’t shied away from giving girlfriend Taylor Swift her flowers on his podcast. The couple’s romance began shortly after the first time Travis mentioned the pop star on the “New Heights” podcast, which he cohosts with brother Jason Kelce. In July 2023, Travis recalled how he saw Swift perform at the Arrowhead Stadium […]

“We’re learning with the paparazzi just taking photos from all over the place, it comes with it,” he said during an October 2023 press conference. “You’ve got a lot of people that care about Taylor, and for good reason.”

The NFL star added that it’s really all about “living, learning and enjoying the moments” together. “At the end of the day, I have always been good at compartmentalizing and being able to stay focused,” he said. “I will just keep rolling with that.”
