Taylor Swift to distance herself from new BFF as Travis Kelce put in awkward position

Awkwardness might be in the air for Taylor Swift and boyfriend Travis Kelce – following reports of a rift between the pop star and Brittany Mahomes, wife of Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs teammate Patrick Mahomes.

Since dating Kelce, Swift has appeared to strike up a tight friendship with former women’s soccer player Brittany, who tied the knot to quarterback Patrick last year, but now there are rumours that Bad Blood is brewing. It’s been claimed Brittany released information about her hangouts with Taylor, which left the singer far from impressed.

During an instalment of 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Zolak & Bertrand radio show, a caller named Jake dialled in and said he had the inside scoop that Swift would be attending the Chiefs’ game against the New England Patriots at the Gillette Stadium, in Massachusetts, on Sunday. “Let’s break some news. She’s coming Sunday. Done deal,” Jake claimed, before adding that he’d heard all was not well in the Swift/Mahomes camp: “One of the sources I have is saying she doesn’t want to be with Brittany Mahomes. I don’t know why.”

Celebrity gossip platform Deuxmoi shared the clip on their Instagram Story with the caption: “Local Boston sports talk radio also confirmed your Brittany Mahomes and t swift distancing.” They also included a screengrab of a message from one follower who in response to the question “What are you guys talking about this week?” – posed on December 12 – replied: “Rumour is Brittany Mahomes went to tabloids after hangouts with Tay – Tay is cooling it now.” At the time, Deuxmoi said: “We have not heard that.”

If true, it could make things rather tricky for close friends and colleagues Travis and Patrick. There didn’t seem to be a hint of drama, mind, when Swift enjoyed a pre-birthday celebration with her beau – who couldn’t make her actual party, to mark turning 34, due to footballing commitments – alongside Brittany, 28, and her hubby, where they partied until the early hours at a bar in Kansas City.
