Travis Kelce is set to miss out on the Grammys altogether, meaning that he won’t be able to witness Taylor Swift potentially winning an award, due to a ‘strict Super Bowl schedule’ imposed by the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to TMZ, the 34-year-old tight-end will be arriving in Las Vegas the same weekend as the music industry’s biggest award ceremony, which is set to take place on Sunday at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles – home of the Lakers.
This also means that Kelce will no longer play in the Pro Bowl, also on Sunday in Orlando, Florida. Kansas City’s No. 87 received his ninth straight nomination since 2015 to play in what used to be called the NFL All-Star game.
Swift will now have to go solo on the red carpet this weekend as she is up for six awards at the Grammy’s.
The conflict in schedule between the pop star and her boyfriend is no indicator that there is any heat in between them. Last Sunday, Kelce confessed his love for Swift in Baltimore, as the Chiefs defeated the Ravens, 17-10, in the AFC Championship game.
Kelce even caught the first touchdown pass of that game, with Swift stunned by the Chiefs’ red hot start. He ended up with 116 receiving yards for a touchdown on 11 receptions, but was seen without his girlfriend upon return to Kansas City.
Since then, it has been widely announced that Kelce is set to be the subject of a comic book coming out shortly.
TidalWave Comics has added the Ohio native to its FAME series, which features the life stories of prominent people.
The glossy, which will be released on February 7, chronicles Kelce’s college and NFL career, as well as his life off the field – hosting TV show ‘Saturday Night Live,’ his weekly podcast (New Heights with Jason Kelce), and his philanthropy work.
Naturally, pages are also dedicated to his love story with pop sensation Swift.
The Kelce-Swift romance has been pure gold for the NFL, spiking interest across social media and increasing merchandise sales.
TidalWave Comics recently updated its own Taylor Swift comic book, featuring the singer dressed as a cheerleader.
Kelce will compete in the Super Bowl in Las Vegas on February 11, but Swift could miss it due to scheduling conflicts with her ‘Eras Tour,’ which has her performing in Tokyo on February 10, the night before the Super Bowl.
