Travis Kelce and Kayla Brown Dating
Last Modified: Jan 25, 2023
Kelce was the star of E! Entertainment Television’s Catching Kelce in 2016, a one-season dating show in the style of The Bachelor that saw 50 women from 50 states compete for his affection: Maya Benberry of California ended up winning, but the two’s romance lasted less than a year.
He dated sports reporter and social media personality Kayla Brown—known by her middle name as Kayla Nicole—off and on from 2017 (when she hit him up via direct message on Instagram) to early 2022: they briefly broke up in 2020 following rumors that Kelce was cheating on her before reconciling later that year.
Rumors swirled that the pair fell apart after Kelce insisted that she fork over a half share of their purchases to prove that she wasn’t with him for his money. Brown denied the claims, and Kelce issued a tweet responding too… which has since been deleted.
Along with the Kansas City Chiefs, he will vie for their third trip to the Super Bowl in the last four years on Sunday. Led by presumptive league MVP and superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City has the second-best odds at winning a title per Kansas’ DraftKings Sportsbook.
Not all of his teammates can say the same: Mahomes’ favorite target, superstar tight end, and well-known heartthrob Travis Kelce isn't shy about opening his private life to the public eye. Kelce stands 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds but is deceptively fast, running the 40-yard dash in 4.61 seconds before getting drafted. With his combination of height, speed, strong hands, and physicality, he’s nearly impossible for defenders to cover. No one’s managed to lock him down for good off the field either, as his left ring finger remains noticeably empty
As of September 2022, it appeared that Brown still misses her old flame: she made headlines for posting a Tiktok where she called herself stupid for believing that Kelce would pop the question after the pair dated for nearly five years. Brown quickly deleted the post.
It remains to be seen whether the two will meet up again, or if Kelce has moved on for good.
Reports circulated during the 2022 regular season that Kelce was dating broadcaster, actress, and media personality, Zuri Hall. The two kept things quiet on social media, perhaps shy of the limelight after the media circus that defined Kelce’s last relationship.
The tactic didn’t work for long, however, as Kelce confirmed to hosts of The Pivot podcast during the Chiefs’ first-round bye that he was single once again.
“I’m in the free market right now,” Kelce revealed. “I’m out there just enjoying life, focused on my profession. Got my feet up outside of football.”
Staring down a playoff run, romance appears to be the last thing on Kelce’s mind, even if he is relishing a chance at the single life.
