In the wake of Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce’s new relationship, let’s focus on the one he failed in. Kayla Nicole has laid her side of the story out for everyone to see, while the tight end has remained mostly quiet. Why did the couple not go the distance?
Travis Kelce’s Hot Take
Kelce doesn’t have one. He’s been mostly “mum’s the word” since news of the breakup with his girlfriend of three years, Nicole, hit the presses.
The NFL tight end keeps his relationship details very close to his chest, which is certainly an ideal way to be when deciding to date one of the biggest international superstars ever.
Anyhow, since the Chiefs’ TE never dropped what he thought happened that ended the relationship, we will have to hear things mostly from her point of view. Although she doesn’t talk much about the relationship dynamics either, the classiness of this breakup is remarkable.
Kelce did dispel rumors by letting us know that he’s not tight with the purse strings, though — indicating he wasn’t a scrooge in his relationship with Nicole.
It’s important to note that Nicole never said he was a penny pincher. The successful social media influencer and sports broadcaster can support herself, and Kelce made sure to point that out.
Kayla Nicole Shares Her Thoughts
Nicole has been on the up and up, showing her inner strength and poise. She used a breakup that emotionally devastated her to become the best version of herself by doing things like going to therapy.
The mental health advocate has passed on her wisdom to others through her social media, and we are all better for it.
Kelce’s ex most recently took to Instagram to post an incredibly transparent and vulnerable message about her personal experience dating and then parting ways with the NFL tight end.
In the moving message, Nicole discusses the backlash she faced as a black woman dating interracially when she was first seen with Kelce and then again when they parted ways.
She talks about self-love and her worth, cautioning women, particularly those of color, to protect their feelings and experiences, sharing them on their own terms.
In one section of her Instagram post, she shares this beautiful sentiment:
“My truth, trauma, and vulnerability are a relatable part of the human experience. I know I’m not alone, and I want to make sure you know that you’re not either. On days when I feel most inadequate, I have to remind myself that I am, have been, and will always be more than enough.”
The Swifties Are in Attack Mode
Maya Benberry has come out publicly, stating that she has received death threats from Taylor Swift fans.
We knew the Swifties were coming for Kayla Nicole, but going back in time to his girlfriend from 2016?

When Benberry had words of advice for the star, alluding to the fact that Kelce was using her, and doubled down on the allegations that the tight end cheated, Swift fans were not having it.
It’s not totally clear why fans got so angry at Kelce’s ex. She alleged that he was the cheater after all. It was a ballsy thing to speak up, and it may have been a little over the top, but nothing for Swifties to get that ruffled up over.
Deep breath, Swift fans. Threats of that nature are never okay.
