A grim-faced Travis Kelce was seen leaving the Kansas City Chiefs‘ team hotel on Saturday amid reports that he and girlfriend Taylor Swift have had their first bust-up.
After a rosy start to their fairytale romance, Kelce and Swift reportedly had their first lovers’ tiff after the Chiefs’ loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day.
The celebrity super-couple have dominated headlines ever since Swift publicly confirmed their relationship by rocking up at Arrowhead to watch Kelce in action for the very first time.
It has even been claimed that they are planning to get engaged in the summer, with Travis preparing to pop the question on their one-year anniversary together in July.
Yet could their be trouble in paradise?
According to Life & Style, Kelce ‘snapped’ at Swift on Christmas Day as the pair clashed in their first argument following the Chiefs’ loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

The NFL star is said to have let his emotions get the better of him after the defeat at Arrowhead, which left his girlfriend feeling ‘hurt and confused’. During the loss, he was also seen throwing his helmet down in fury on the sidelines.
Amid reports of his spat with Swift, Kelce was seen with a stony look on his face in exclusive photos from Dailymail.com as he left the Chiefs’ hotel ahead of their crucial playoff game against the Miami Dolphins at Arrowhead.
A source is quoted as saying that the row ruined his and Taylor’s holidays given it was their first fight in five months together.
And over a week later, Swift’s stressful holiday season was followed by a controversial New York Times article which questioned her sexuality.
Taylor’s friends were said to be upset about the opinion piece, adding to the tumultuous fortnight she encounter after her lovers’ tiff with Kelce.
It is believed Taylor is now starting to acknowledge the challenges that come with dating a high-profile athlete, with the pop sensation even asking fellow WAG Brittany Mahomes for advice.
‘Brittany told Taylor to let Travis lick his wounds, but it wasn’t easy,’ the source is quoted as saying.
Swift was reportedly a ‘nervous wreck’ when she next attended a Chiefs game on New Year’s Eve, despite being seen sharing a kiss with her boyfriend later in the evening at a glitzy party.
The prospect of another Kansas City loss ruining their celebrations was a huge worry for the singer and songwriter, but fortunately Kelce and Co prevailed in a 25-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Travis opened up on the pain of losing to Las Vegas on Christmas Day, admitting on his New Heights podcast that it was ‘the f****ng worst’.
‘That was embarrassing. Everybody in the building knows how embarrassing that was. We got a short week so we’re going to forget about this s*** real quick,’ he said.

‘It’s a f***ing frustrating experience right now and every single day we’re trying to fix it. I promise you guys.
‘It’s not just one. It’s not just me playing dog s***… we played so trash as an offense that we put the defense in a really tough spot at the end of the game. It’s frustrating when you’ve got the guys you need and things aren’t going your way.’
Constant travel is also believed to be a growing issue for Travis and Taylor as they clock up countless miles to visit one another across the globe.
Though while Kelce has jetted to Buenos Aires to watch his girlfriend’s concert and to New York to visit her in Tribeca, it’s Swift who has been travelling most to watch him in action for Kansas City.
The source described her as being ‘the one bending over backwards’ to make the relationship work, which is starting to take its toll with the honeymoon period now over.
Travis and Taylor are also reportedly clashing over work commitments, with a ‘teary-eyed’ Swift forced to take a backseat while her boyfriend’s focus was purely on football.
Things are said to get heated between them given their respective schedules, which works both ways with Swift also realizing that her career comes first.
Her introduction to the Kelce family has not been completely smooth, either.
Travis’s brother Jason, and his wife Kylie, have apparently not made the singer feel too welcome and comments made to the media about their relationship have upset Swift, according to the bombshell report.
