Travis Kelce doesn’t mention Taylor Swift by name AT ALL on his latest ‘New Heights’ podcast – but jokes with brother Jason about ‘Swifties’ going to see his Eagles game in LA last Sunday
Travis Kelce was keen to focus on football in the latest episode of his New Heights podcast – mentioning his girlfriend Taylor Swift just once, in a casual reference to her fans.
Kelce admitted last week that he was adjusting to his newfound fame and attention due to his ties to Swift and didn’t try to fan the flames on his podcast, which he hosts with his NFL-playing brother Jason, of the Philadelphia Eagles don’t blow
Travis was just talking about ‘Swifties’ attending the Eagles game last weekend, when Jason and his Philadelphia team went to Los Angeles to play the Rams. He never mentioned Swift’s name in full.
‘There were some Swifties among the Eagles fans in LA. A TikTok user posted a video of Jason warming up saying, ‘Hurry here, I found a Kelce,’ and had fun analyzing Jason’s warm-up,” Travis said.
But otherwise there was no further mention of his romance with the 33-year-old pop star.

But Travis did say that ‘Swifties’ went to watch his brother Jason play in LA on Sunday
Swift didn’t make it to Kelce’s game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings — he scored a touchdown in a 27-20 win but also hurt his ankle and had an X-ray.
However, Swifties were also there, hoping to catch a glimpse of the pop star, but were left disappointed this time.
Before that, Swift made it to Kelce’s last two games — once at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, where the Chiefs beat the Bears 41-10, and the following week in New York for the Jets game.
And this week, it’s currently questionable whether Kelce himself will be on the field when the Chiefs play the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.
Kelce said on the podcast that he was afraid he broke his ankle when he rolled it on the turf against the Vikings. He needed an X-ray to confirm that there was no rupture.
The extent of the issue has not been disclosed by the team — which could be interpreted as good news by Chiefs fans — but coach Andy Reid will still have to decide if Kelce can play Thursday.
Talking about the attention on himself and Swift last Friday, Travis said: ‘The way all the attention comes, it feels like I was on top of the world after the Super Bowl and now even more on top of the world. .
“You have a lot of people who care about Taylor, and for good reason. Gotta keep living and learning and enjoying the moments.
“We learn with the paparazzi taking pictures everywhere, but that comes with it.”
