Taylor Swift’s dad, Scott, explains newfound loyalty to Kansas City Chiefs amid daughter’s romance with Travis Kelce

Taylor Swift’s dad is in his lover era. “I’m a football fan — of all teams,” Scott Swift told a paparazzo at LAX on Friday when the longtime Philadelphia Eagles fan was asked whether he liked the Kansas City Chiefs before Taylor started dating the team’s tight end, Travis Kelce.

“Andy Reid used to coach the Eagles,” too, Scott further explained, referring to the Chiefs’ current head coach. Scott, who was wearing a button-up shirt under a business jacket, made the admission while looking for his driver outside of the airport. The singer’s dad, 71, was accompanied by her brother, Austin Swift, her manager, Robert Allen, and assistant, Erica Worden. Her family and team arrived in Los Angeles ahead of this Sunday’s Grammy Awards, which are being held at the Crypto.com Arena.

The “Cruel Summer” songstress, 34, is nominated for six awards this year — song of the year, record of the year, best pop solo performance, best pop duo/group performance, best pop vocal album and album of the year. She’s also rumored to be announcing the release date of her next re-recording, “Reputation (Taylor’s Version).” The Grammys will kickstart a busy week for Taylor who’s also set to launch the 2024 leg of her Eras Tour in Tokyo, Japan, on Wednesday.

After four back-to-back concerts between Wednesday and Saturday, Taylor will hop on a private jet and go straight to Las Vegas, Nevada so she can watch her main squeeze, 34, and his team take on the San Francisco 49ers during Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11. It’s not yet clear whether Taylor’s dad or any other family members will join her at the big game, but it wouldn’t be surprising as Scott and Taylor’s mom, Andrea Swift, attended Kelce’s Christmas Day game.
