The Kelce Bowl us a Swift-less one.
Andrea and Scott Swift, parents to Grammy winner Taylor, won’t take in Monday’s Chiefs-Eagles game to catch their daughter’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce, take on his older brother Jason’s squad.
The news was first reported by TMZ.
Taylor was expected to introduce her parents to Ed and Donna Kelce, Travis’ dad and mom, in a box at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City for the “Monday Night Football” game.
Instead, she’ll be performing in Rio de Janiero, making up for her Saturday show that was postponed due to heat.
It’s a major step forward for the couple, who have only been together a few months.
“Taylor and Travis have met each other’s parents so it only makes sense that they’d want their parents to meet each other as things between them are getting really serious,” an insider told Us Weekly last week.
“Taylor and Travis both have a very close bond with their parents and it’s really important that their families blend seamlessly, as well.”Travis Kelce and the Chiefs will take on brother Jason’s Eagles — without girlfriend Taylor Swift or her parents in attendance.Getty Images Taylor Swift performs her last show at the Engenhao Stadium in Brazil.Dilson Silva / BACKGRID
The couple met after Travis attempted to give her a friendship bracelet at her Eras Tour concert in July.
She snuck her way into the first of four Chiefs games to root him on September, and they’ve since been the focus of media attention as they’ve spent a date night in New York, got together in Kansas City and Jet-setted around the world to support one another.

Network.Scott Swift, Taylor Swift and Andrea Swift are seen upon arrival at Narita International Airport on May 31, 2014 in Narita, Japan.GC Images Pop superstar Taylor Swift, left, and Donna Kelce, mother of Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.Denver Post via Getty Images
“Obviously I’ve never dated anyone with that kind of aura about them,” Kelce told WSJ. Magazine. “I’ve never dealt with it.
“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.”
