Swift went public with her relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and she has been to 12 Kansas City games so far – with a 13th set to follow next week when they face San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl in Las Vegas.

Some fans have grown tired of Swift’s presence inevitably taking some of the limelight away from the action on the field but Chiefs safety Reid is only glad to welcome the star to Chiefs Kingdom.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, he said: ‘She’s very, very sweet.

‘I don’t understand why she’s getting all the hate. She’s an awesome person, awesome artist all around.’

He was asked about Swift potentially joining the Chiefs for any Super Bowl celebrations and said: ‘I’m sure she’ll be busy celebrating with her man.’

Speaking earlier this week to ‘Inside the NFL’, Reid said he was pleased to see how happy Kelce looks with Swift.

‘Their relationship is unique and special and it’s for them, man,’ Reid said. ‘So I’ll let them have their moment together. And I’m not going to step too much into what’s their business.’

Kelce and the Chiefs will land in Vegas on Sunday evening and begin a week of preparations and build up for the game at Allegiant Stadium on February 11.

As for Swift, she faces a little bit of a race against time to make the game.

She plays four shows on her hugely successful Eras Tour in Tokyo, Japan from Wednesday to Saturday next week.

Swift is then expected to fly back to Nevada on the west coast to cheer Kelce on for the game but might not have too much time for celebrations if the Chiefs win.

She is scheduled to tour Australia, starting in Melbourne, from February 16.
