Taylor Swift didn’t show her face at Sunday afternoon’s Kansas City Chiefs-Minnesota Vikings game in Minneapolis.
It is unknown whether or not Swift will continue to attend Chiefs games in Minnesota.
After she was nowhere to be seen before kickoff in Minneapolis, NFL Network reporter Scott Hanson confirmed that the pop sensation was not in attendance during Sunday’s game.
Thousands of fans flocked to US Bank Stadium to soak up the Swift and Kelce frenzy that has engulfed the NFL in recent weeks.
TV producers for Sunday’s game also appeared to be preparing for his appearance, with a photo by Kansas City Star photographer Nick Wagner showing stickers saying ‘Day’ plastered above one particular seat.
The same stickers were found next to Swift’s seat at Arrowhead, where he watched the Kells and the Chiefs beat the Bears last month — his first appearance in support of the Kells.
Last week, he traveled to MetLife Stadium to watch the Chiefs play the New York Jets on Sunday Night Football.
With Swift’s arrival, Kansas City won both games – moving to 3-1 on the season.
Despite his no-show on Sunday, the Chiefs president denied the singer-songwriter’s association with the Kells and Kansas City could have a negative impact on the team/
Mark Donovan dismissed the attention Swift brings as a distraction for Kells and the team, particularly for the 34-year-old himself.
“Travis is a smart teammate,” Donovan told PEOPLE. ‘He can handle it and is very professional.
‘Our locker room has the maturity, leadership and respect to handle it.’
Kelsey addressed the media on Friday and said she was embracing the extra media interest surrounding her and the pop star.
‘When all the attention comes, you know – I was on top of the world after the Super Bowl and now I’m even more on top of the world,’ he said.
You have a lot of people who care about Taylor, and for good reason. Live and learn and enjoy the moments.
‘We’re learning paparazzi are everywhere taking pictures, but it’s coming.
‘I’ve always been very good at focusing on this building. I’ll keep rolling with it, man.
‘Everybody’s having fun with it, overdoing it or not. I know I brought this on myself and I’m lucky to have fun with it. What really matters is that it doesn’t fool anyone, at least here.’
