(NEXSTAR) — If you’re tuning in to Super Bowl LVIII just to spot Taylor Swift, there’s a good chance you already spotted her during the game coverage.
Swift and her entourage are sitting in a suite courtesy of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, whom she has been dating since the first few weeks of the NFL season.
Kelce reportedly purchased the suite, which cost more than $1 million, sources told TMZ.
“I’m not really doing much different other than just counting how much money I’m spending on this damn Super Bowl for family and friends to come. Just making sure I’m on top of those finances and losing all this money,” Kelce said earlier this week during an episode of “New Heights,” the podcast he does with brother Jason Kelce, center for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Jason Kelce is among those in attendance, spotted speaking with Swift before the game.
Also seen in the suite were Donna and Ed Kelce, as well as Jason Kelce’s wife, Kylie Kelce.
That’s not all, of course.
Swift’s parents, Andrea and Scott Swift, and her brother Austin are also at the game, as are members of Swift’s “inner circle,” including actor Blake Lively, rapper Ice Spice, Ice Spice’s producer RIOTUSA, and stylist and designer Ashley Avignone.
Lana Del Rey could also be seen standing near Swift and the other suitemates.
Swift completed her epic trip from the Tokyo Dome to Allegiant Stadium for the Super Bowl on Sunday, flying across nine time zones and the international dateline from her Eras Tour to arrive about two hours before kickoff.
She walked in wearing a black outfit with a red jacket slung over her shoulder, apparently getting the memo from Kelce and many of the Chiefs. He wore a shimmering black suit, quarterback Patrick Mahomes wore a sharp black suit of his own, and even Chiefs coach Andy Reid wore a black blazer as the Chiefs leaned into the villain role in which they have been cast.
Even Kelce’s mother, affectionately known as Mama Kelce, arrived at the Super Bowl donning a black jacket.
There was plenty of star power besides Swift for the NFL’s marquee night. Usher was performing at halftime of the Super Bowl, and was rumored to have several guests planned, while Post Malone and Reba McEntire were performing before the game.
Few were to be under a brighter spotlight than Swift, though. Her dash from the Tokyo Dome, where she promised fans that “we’re all gonna go on a great adventure,” had Swifties around the world watching online flight trackers, while her boyfriend seemed to get as many questions about his relationship as the game during the run-up to kickoff.
Asked to explain the intense interest, Kelce replied: “I think the values we stand for and just who we are as people — we love to shine light on others, shine light on the people that help and support us, and on top of that, I think we both just love life.”
Kelce and Swift won’t have a whole lot of time together, regardless of how the game plays out.
After winning a record-breaking fourth Album of the Year award at the Grammys for “Midnights,” announcing her next album will drop in April and attending the Super Bowl, Swift is due back across the Pacific later this week. The international leg of her Eras Tour resumes Friday night with the first of three shows at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
“This week is truly the best kind of chaos,” she posted Wednesday on Instagram.
