Pop superstar Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce have been reportedly “hanging out,” and Swifties on TikTok are doing their homework.
The two were seen driving away from Arrowhead Stadium following the Chiefs’ 41-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, which Swift watched in a suite with Kelce’s family. They are currently trending on X, formerly known as Twitter, with over 50,000 posts regarding the two celebrities.

As their relationship seems to blossom, Swifties are pointing to Swift’s lyrics as evidence of her “manifesting” their relationship in her songs.
One of the songs fans flagged as a major clue is “Wildest Dreams” — off Swift’s 2014 album, 1989. In the song, Swift sings, “He’s so tall and handsome as hell/He’s so bad, but he does it so well.”
“Taylor is truly a mastermind,” wrote @alyssaakimball in her video. “She manifested this.”
The lyric manifestations go back further than that, with fans finding songs from 2006 that predicted their current relationship. In “Mary’s Song (Oh My My My),” Swift sings on the outro, “And I’ll be eighty-seven, you’ll be eighty-nine/I’ll still look at you like the stars that shine.”
Fans latched on to this line because Kelce wears the number 87 for the Chiefs, and Swift was gifted a number 89 Chiefs jersey in 2015.
Swift’s fans haven’t always been as giddy over who she’s reportedly involved with. Earlier in 2023, Swifties voiced their disdain for Swift’s ex-boyfriend and lead singer of the 1975, Matt Healy. Fans — specifically those of color — were upset because of the problematic comments Healy repeatedly made, including several offensive jokes about rapper Ice Spice.
Although some of the lyrics Swifties are pointing to accurately describe Kelce, they can easily be considered coincidences. The jersey Swift was given came from former Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniels and had the number 89 because of the recently released 1989. Also, “Mary’s Song (Oh My My My)” was released in 2006 — which is seven years before Kelce was drafted to the Chiefs.
Swift and Kelce haven’t officially confirmed their relationship, but Swifties already feel differently about her current situation and have used lyrics as a sign that this was destined to happen.
