Man’s Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce clip leads to ‘crazy 24 hours’

A US journalist who captured the moment Taylor Swift stepped out with her rumoured new love interest has said it has been “the craziest 24 hours of my life”.

Jarrett Payton recorded a video clip of Swift, who was spotted on Sunday for the first time with Travis Kelce, a star American football player with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Swift was at the Chiefs’ home game against the Chicago Bears, sitting in a box with Kelce’s mother, Donna.

As he watched the game, Jarrett Payton, who is also a former National Football League player, set an objective for himself.

“My goal is to find Taylor Swift before I leave Arrowhead”, he wrote on Sunday on X, formerly known as Twitter, referring to the stadium that hosted the game.

A few hours later, Mr Payton made good on that promise, catching a glimpse of the superstar with Kelce, a tight-end for the Chiefs.

Luckily for Swifties everywhere, he caught it on video. The four second clip, posted to his X account, has been viewed more than 14 million times.

“I was at the right place at the right time last night,” Mr Payton told the BBC. “This has been the craziest 24 hours of my life.”

Footage of the night show clips of Swift inside Kelce’s box – dancing, chatting to his mother and cheering for his touchdown – each moment devoured by Swifties online.
