Travis Kelce is no stranger to football fans. The prolific Kansas City Chiefs tight end has amassed over 10,000 career receiving yards and 70 touchdown receptions. He’s been honored for his successes with eight Pro Bowl selections and a combined seven All-Pro nods.
Kelce is even better in the postseason. In fact, in his last 12 playoff games, Kelce has racked up an eye-popping 100 catches, 1,123 yards, and 14 touchdowns. He’s a humongous part of why Kansas City has hoisted two Lombardi trophies in the past four years.
While the tight end is highly regarded in football circles, he isn’t necessarily a national household name. At least not in comparison with pop-culture heavyweights like, say, Leonardo DiCaprio or Beyonce. Or Taylor Swift.
But Kelce’s recent high-profile courtship of Swift, the ultra-successful pop diva, could very well change that.
Already, Kelce’s popularity has skyrocketed. While he already had a big reputation to begin with, Kelce’s seen a gold rush in social media followers and jersey sales since his association with Swift became public knowledge.
Travis Kelce has had a busy 24 hours:
• 7 catches for 69 yards and a TD
• Gained 300,000+ social media followers
• +400% increase in merchandise sales
• Top 5 selling jersey in the NFL

But does this pairing, if it becomes a permanent one, make geographic sense? Both mega-stars do a lot of traveling in their day-to-day, how often can they expect to see one another?
Where Does Travis Kelce Live?
Kelce’s evidently got a few properties encompassed within his portfolio. His primary stomping grounds would appear, unsurprisingly, to be in Kansas City, Missouri.
This New York Post article welcomes readers into Kelce’s luxurious abode for a brief tour, showing off views of his wine cellar, gym, and master bedroom. The home reportedly went for $995,000, located in Kansas City’s swanky Briarcliff West neighborhood.
The star tight end’s custom-designed mansion boasts features aplenty, including seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a large swimming pool with a neighboring gazebo, and a martini bar off the master bedroom overlooking the aforementioned pool.

That isn’t Kelce’s lone living space, however. According to Sportskeeda, Kelce also rents an apartment at One Light Luxury. The upscale high-rise features numerous amenities including a gym, swimming pool, and game rooms. It’s also set up in the heart of downtown Kansas City, making it a perfect in-season safe haven for Kelce.
Kelce’s proximity to Swift will vary wildly. Per the New York Post, the star singer owns a plethora of properties in locations such as New York City, Los Angeles, and Nashville. She’s also got a more secluded beach house in Rhode Island when it’s time to escape the limelight.
Swift’s Nashville home will definitely be the closest to Kelce’s pad in Kansas City. That trip is approximately a two-hour flight.
But Swift’s diversity of properties means she’ll likely pop up in support of Kelce again, perhaps at an away game this time. In fact, the Chiefs will square off with the New York Jets on Sunday Night Football this week.

Considering she’s not presently touring, don’t be surprised if Swift shows up to celebrate another Kelce touchdown in person again this week.
