Kansas City Chiefs Travis Kelce and Superstar Taylor Swift Net Worths Compared

    What are the net comparisons between Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Grammy award-winner Taylor Swift?

    Travis Kelce continues to be in the news thanks to his massively popular podcast and one other important storyline. We are, of course, talking about the budding relationship between Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and global superstar Taylor Swift.

    Their relationship brings a ton of questions, but one of the first tends to be focused on their respective net worths. Both are already wealthy and worth millions. But who has the higher net worth, Kelce or Swift? The answer will likely not surprise you.

    Taylor Swift’s Net Worth: How Much Is the Country/Pop Singer Worth?

    According to Forbes, Taylor Swift’s net worth at the start of 2023 was around $740 million. While that number itself might seem big, it’s even more impressive if you look at the trajectory her valuation of assets has been on over the last few years.

    In 2020, Swift was worth $550 million. Then that number trended upward to $570 million, before nearing the $800 million mark. She’s gotten there by putting out consistent No. 1 albums in a music career that began at the age of 16.

    However, not long after her relationship with Kelce came into focus later in 2023, Swift did something few other artists have ever done, she became a billionaire.

    According to a Bloomberg analysis, thanks to Swift’s incredibly popular Eras Tour, her total net worth is currently at $1.1 billion. She’s the 15th celebrity in Forbes’ rankings to earn the billionaire title and the ninth to do so in the last three years. Swift’s also one of just four musicians to have officially achieved that status.

    A big part of the artist’s success in 2023 was her Eras Tour film. In a press release, AMC Theaters said Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour has raked in over $261.6 million globally, just putting it past the previous record holder, Michael Jackson’s This Is It. In recognition of the wild success of The Eras Tour, the documentary earned a nomination for the Golden Globes’ new Cinematic and Box Office Achievement prize.

    The other names that Swift now accompanies as billionaires are Rihanna, Jay Z, Jimmy Buffett, and Bruce Springsteen.

    What Is Travis Kelce’s Net Worth?

    Kelce is indeed a millionaire but makes much, much less than Swift.

    The two-time Super Bowl winner has a net worth of $30 million. For his play, Kelce earns an average annual salary of $14,312,500. For 2023, he has a base salary of $11,250,000.

    Kelce is still under a four-year deal that pays up to $57.25 million. But still, with the money he makes as a perennial Pro Bowler and now multiple-time Super Bowl winner, one would think that he’s massively underpaid.

    Yet, the Chiefs captain said back in June 2023 that he’s fine being underpaid.

    “My managers and agents love to tell me how underpaid I am,” Kelce said in an interview with Vanity Fair. But he added, “I’m like, the free market looks like fun until you go somewhere and you don’t win. I love winning. I love the situation I’m in.”

    It’s clear he likes this other situation he’s in — one that involves Swift being in the picture.

    In an interview with the Wall Street Journal earlier in December, Kelce spoke openly about what being with a global superstar was like. The Chiefs tight end said that he has “never dated anyone with that kind of aura about them.”

    “I’ve never dealt with it,” Kelce added of Swift. “But at the same time, I’m not running away from any of it… The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she’s just living, enjoying life. When she acts like that, I better not be the one acting all strange.”

    And while Swift has a higher net worth, Kelce witnessed a spike in social media followers. Kelce has more than three million followers on his Instagram after being spotted with Swift after the Chiefs’ Week 3 romp against the Chicago Bears.

    Talking about his newfound popularity, Kelce revealed that he embraces it. “It’s worldwide, man. Everybody’s having fun with it. I know I brought this to myself. I’ve been fortunate enough to have fun with it, and that’s where all that really matters.”

    Even the Chiefs owner Clark Hunt had something to say about the two dating. Hunt has enjoyed the extra attention that the team has received thanks to Swift’s stardom.

    “I’ve had a chance to meet her at one of the many games that she’s attended this year, and she’s just as sweet as she can be,” he said. “I also got to see her play here twice this past summer, and what an incredible performer. Just one of the most amazing artists of our time.”

    The CEO said that Swift and Kelce’s romance has made it a “very fun year” due to the new attention on the team and the growth of its female fanbase.

    “It was purely organic,” he said. “When they were just starting off dating, there were a lot of people saying, ‘Oh, it’s a marketing stunt.’ But no, it’s very real. And as I said, the most important thing is we’re happy for the two of them.”
