Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are two of the biggest stars in their respective fields, but they also share a unique connection: a friendship bracelet.
It all started in July 2023, when Swift performed at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, was in the audience, and he was determined to give Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it.
“I received a bunch of them being there, but I wanted to give Taylor Swift one with my number on it,” Kelce said on his podcast, “New Heights.”
Unfortunately, Kelce was unable to give Swift the bracelet in person. She doesn’t typically meet with fans after her concerts. But that didn’t stop Kelce from trying.
“She doesn’t meet anybody, or at least she didn’t want to meet me, so I took it personal,” Kelce joked.
Despite Kelce’s disappointment, the friendship bracelet story quickly went viral. Fans were amused by the idea of a famous NFL player trying to give a friendship bracelet to a famous pop star.
Some fans even started speculating that Swift and Kelce were dating. But Kelce quickly put those rumors to rest.
“We’re not dating,” Kelce said on his podcast. “But I think the friendship bracelet story is a lot of fun.”
Swift has not commented on the friendship bracelet story, but she has been known to wear friendship bracelets from time to time. In fact, she even has a song called “Friendship Bracelets” on her 2022 album “Midnights.”
So, while Swift and Kelce may not be dating, they do share a unique connection thanks to a friendship bracelet. And who knows? Maybe they’ll even become friends in the future.
