NFL Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce has reportedly purchased a new home in a gated community, after he found his house was too accessible to paparazzi amid his newly public relationship with Taylor Swift.

Kelce will reportedly be trading in his Kansas City, Missouri home for a larger house that includes a tennis court and water fall, and much stronger security. Security was previously not a concern to the NFL star, but now that Swift continues to visit his home city during football season, fans and paparazzi continue to encircle the house whenever she is rumored to be in town.

The sale was first reported by TMZ. Images of the alleged house the NFL star purchased continue to circulate on X.

Why They Never Go Out Of Style

The couple were recently spotted in New York City making cameo appearances on Saturday Night Live. Swift appeared to announce her friend and collaborator Ice Spice‘s performance, and Kelce made a guest appearance in host and comedian Pete Davidson‘s skit about the Swift-Kelce phenomenon. The pair were seen attending the SNL after party together, and spending time in the city last weekend.

The pair first united when a few months ago, his home stadium of Arrowhead was converted to a concert venue in the city for Swift’s tour, and the singer left a lasting impression on the NFL tight end. The Kelce brothers recounted Travis becoming enchanted with Swift, and getting creative with trying to get her attention. The NFL star admitted that he attempted to hand Swift a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it.


Social Media Reactions

Many fans of both Kelce and Swift took the football star’s latest purchase as a sign of commitment in his relationship with the songstress.

Others reflected on the power balance of the relationship. Swift has long been known for her call outs on toxic masculinity, both in a general sense via tracks like “The Man” and allegedly towards previous relationships, as mentioned in “All Too Well: 10 Minute Version.” Some fans feel that Kelce’s perceived security in his masculinity and support for Swift’s massive power in the entertainment industry bodes well for them.

Elsewhere, some took Kelce’s quick purchase of a more secure home as a sign that he is just as much of a hopeless romantic as Swift.


Some feel that the new home only further illustrates the couple’s compatibility.

Swift continues to appear in the VIP box at Kansas City Chiefs games, with her next re-recorded album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” dropping Oct. 27.
