Why Travis Kelce Skipped The 2024 Met Gala

Fans had anticipated to see Travis Kelce and girlfriend Taylor Swift make their Met Gala appearance tonight, but the couple has yet to appear. While Kelce has not commented on his absence from fashion’s biggest night, it’s obvious that the NFL star chose to forego the event because Taylor Swift would not be present.



The singer is currently preparing for the European leg of her Eras Tour, which broke records. Beginning Thursday, she will perform four consecutive shows at Paris’ La Défense Arena. With the volume of concerts, rehearsals, and travel time, Swift most likely couldn’t fit the Met Gala into her busy schedule, prompting Kelce to also forgo the annual event.

If they had gone, it would have been the Kansas City Chiefs tight end’s first time at the Met Gala, as well as the couple’s first red carpet appearance together. Nonetheless, Kelce and Swift sightings are common among fans.



Swift and Kelce have supported one other on the sidelines of their respective events, with Swift rooting for Kelce during the Super Bowl in February (which he and the Chiefs won) and Kelce dancing in the VIP tent during the Eras Tour. Recently, they took their romance to Coachella, where they were joined by numerous of Swift’s A-list friends, including Jack Antonoff and Ice Spice.
