“She’s been great,” Reid said in an interview while making an appearance on the Let’s Go! podcast hosted by Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray. “Listen, she’s a good girl and I’m happy for Trav, and there has been no distraction that way at all. Trav’s handled it right, she’s handled it right, and we just move forward, so it hasn’t been a problem at all.”
There has been backlash from die-hard NFL fans over the coverage that Swift gets every time she attends a Chiefs game to support Kelce. Early on in the 2023 football season, the league addressed the situation releasing a statement amid fan uproar.
“The Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce news has been a pop cultural moment we’ve leaned into in real-time, as it’s an intersection of sport and entertainment, and we’ve seen an incredible amount of positivity around the sport,” the football organization said at the time. “The vast majority of our content has remained focused on the game, our players and variety of other initiatives, including our Toy Story Funday Football alt-cast, the international games and more.”
As the Chiefs made it through the playoffs, more appearances by Swift have been made at each game. During a recent broadcast, one of the announcers called Swift the “most valuable princess of the Chiefs Kingdom.”
With the Chiefs heading to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas to face the San Francisco 49ers, all eyes will certainly continue to be on Swift for the big game.
