Taylor Swift made headlines over the weekend when she appeared at Arrowhead Stadium, taking up Travis Kelce’s invitation to see him play. 

Swift was decked out in red and white while watching alongside Kelce's mother, Donna, from one of the glass-enclosed suites on a sun-splashed afternoon in Kansas City.

Rumors of a relationship between Swift and Kelce have been swirling for days, ever since Kelce told "The Pat McAfee Show" that he "threw the ball in (Swift’s) court" and invited her to a game. She’s on a break from her Eras Tour, which resumes Nov. 9 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
