Rob Lowe believes that the romance between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce is advantageous for the NFL
“I think it is good for the NFL,” Lowe, 59, told Extra in a Thursday, October 26, interview when asked if he believed the pop star, 33, and Kelce’s romance had positive repercussions or is too much of a “sideshow” for the league. “I know for a fact all kinds of Swifties who couldn’t tell the Kansas City Chiefs from the Kansas City Royals, and now they’re watching.”
He added: “They’re both great people. They’re awesome.”
Just under a fortnight ago, Lowe was seen at the Kansas City Chiefs versus Denver Broncos game donning a “Where’s Taylor?” cap. (Swift herself was also present at the event and was observed engaging in conversation with Travis’ father, Ed Kelce.)
Travis, aged 34, and Taylor Swift have been grabbing the spotlight in recent months due to their blossoming romance. Following the athlete’s invitation to witness him “rock the stage” at Arrowhead Stadium, she attended to watch the Chiefs secure a victory against the Chicago Bears in September.
Swift has maintained her presence at Travis’ games, and a source shared exclusively with Us Weekly earlier this month that their relationship is flourishing.
“It’s still so new, but they really like each other,” the insider shared. “They both want to see each other when they can and they’re both understanding of each other’s schedules. They’re supportive of each other and they don’t have to be by each other’s side all the time and that feels comfortable. They plan to carve out moments to spend together to get to know each other better.”
After Swift cheering Travis on from a distance, the couple made their first public appearance after their Saturday Night Live cameos on October 14. The twosome were spotted holding hands in New York City and attended an SNL afterparty together.
After their date night, another insider told Us that Travis is “different from anybody Taylor has dated before” and she keeps “falling for him more and more as the days go by.”
“He goes out of his way to make Taylor feel special in any way he can … Taylor couldn’t believe the massive bouquet of flowers Travis sent to her just because,” the source continued. “He supports her independence and success.”
A third insider shared that friends think Swift and Kelce were “in love.”
“They’re really happy. They’re not saying they’re in love yet. But it’s obvious to her friends they’re heading in that direction,” a source explained to Us on Friday, October 20. “Friends think they’re in love. He’s going to see her when she’s back on tour. That’s already planned. And when she gets a break, she’ll see him. It’s going so well because it’s easy and nothing is complicated.”
