Travis Kelce throws shade at Taylor Swift's exes Joe Alwyn and Jake Gyllenhaal

Travis Kelce seemingly dragged two of his girlfriend’s high-profile exes in an awkward podcast discussion about Taylor Swift.

 

 

The Chiefs tight end appeared on Tuesday’s episode of the Bussin’ With the Boys’ podcast and got candid about his relationship with the pop star.

During one segment, he discussed his favorite Swift songs with co-hosts Will Compton and Taylor Lewan, who thought the chart-topping track, Karma, was one of her best.

 

 

‘Karma is [about] Gyllenhaal, right?’ Compton awkwardly asked, referencing Jake Gyllenhaal, who Swift briefly dated almost 15 years ago. ‘Was it Jake? Am I wrong?’

Kelce avoided the question by asking, ‘What happened?’

Lewan then informed his co-host that when the 14-time Grammy winner began dating the Kansas City star, she switched up the lyrics to, ‘karma is the guy on the Chiefs coming straight home to me.’

 

 

Compton asked if the lyrics on the 2022 track originally referred to ‘a guy on the screen,’ which was reportedly a reference to her then-boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn.

‘It was,’ Kelce replied, putting emphasis on the word ‘was.’

Social media users were quick to praise the athlete for how he handled the bizarre line of questioning.

‘I wanted to crawl in a hole for a second but he handled it like a champ,’ one fan wrote on X.

‘The way he handled that nonsense was great tbh,’ another chimed in.

 

 

A third wrote, ‘I felt a bit angry at first, but then I started giggling with Trav.’

The Cruel Summer songstress started dating the tight end in the summer of 2023 and confirmed their romance when she attended one of his games that September.

It came almost six months after she split from Alwyn, whom she dated for more than six years.

‘There is always going to be a gap between what is known and what is said,’ the British actor said about the breakup in a London Times interview published earlier this month.

 

 

As for Gyllenhaal, he and Swift had a short-lived romance in late 2010 that inspired her hit song, All Too Well.

After the pop star released as a 10-minute version of the track in 2021, Gyllenhaal dragged ‘unruly’ fans in an interview with Esquire.

The ‘Brokeback Mountain’ actor implied that Swift has a ‘responsibility’ to keep her supporters ‘civil and not allow for cyberbullying.’
