American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift and National Football League (NFL) player Travis Kelce have dominated headlines since their romance was first rumoured in September. The two have been seen together attending sports events together and Mr Kelce was recently seen at Ms Swift's concert. Now, the athlete has spilled the beans on how the relationship actually started. He stated that he "had somebody play cupid" in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
The NFL player tried to meet the Grammy-award-winning singer after he could not meet at her Kansas City Eras Tour show. The two later got in touch and that's how their relationship began. "There were definitely people she knew that knew who I was, in her corner (who said): 'Yo! Did you know he was coming?' I had somebody playing Cupid," he told WSJ, adding that he later received a text from the singer. "She told me exactly what was going on and how I got lucky enough to get her to reach out."
He even stated that a few of Ms Swift's family members also helped him in getting her attention and she would "probably hate him" for disclosing the details."She'll probably hate me for saying this, but...when she came to Arrowhead, they gave her the big locker room as a dressing room, and her little cousins were taking pictures...in front of my locker," he said.
