Taylor Swift is in her football era.
The "Cruel Summer" singer was shown during Fox's broadcast of the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday sitting in a suite next to Donna Kelce, the mother of Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce. Swift was donning a red and white hoodie, cheering on the Chiefs as they prepared for kickoff.
And to cap it all off, the two were spotted leaving together after the game.
Her appearance at Sunday's game swiftly reignited rumors that the pop superstar and Super Bowl champion have been dating for the past few weeks. Swift was previously romantically linked with Joe Alwyn, and earlier this year, the two called it quits. Kelce was previously linked with on-air reporter Kayla Nicole; the two started dating in 2017 and were in an on-again, off-again relationship for five years.
