Travis Kelce’s ex Kayla Nicole responds to Taylor Swift fans’ hate


Model and NFL star Travis Kelce’s ex-girlfriend Kayla Nicole has shared an open letter to black women amid her ex-boyfriend’s highly publicized romance with Taylor Swift.

In an Instagram video on Monday, the 31-year-old addressed the negative attention she’s received on social media and the renewed conversation about her five-year relationship with Kelsey. Nicole dated the Kansas City Chiefs from 2017 to 2022.

“Dear black girl,” she began. “They may call you a traitor for falling in love. You will hope that the people closest to you will protect you. But you’ll soon learn that people don’t protect what they don’t value.”

The influencer continued, “They’ll say you’re too big… and at the same time, tell you you’re not good enough, not successful enough, not healthy enough, maybe not even smart enough. They will say that you deserve backlash and embarrassment. Because of your blackness, you should have known better. They will also try to tie your price to your net worth. But black girl, please remember that your value lies somewhere else.

The ongoing fanfare surrounding Kelce’s alleged relationship with Swift resulted in several articles being written about Nicole, as well as a strong reaction from both football fans and Swift’s own fan base. Nicole became the subject of even more headlines when she apparently unfollowed Kelce’s teammate Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany Mahomes on Instagram. Many people online assumed that Nicole and Mahomes are now at odds, especially after outlets reported that Britney and Swift have developed a friendship over the past few weeks.

As a public-facing interracial couple, the conversation surrounding Kelce and Nicole’s relationship has always been particularly fraught. Following news of Kelce and Swift’s apparent affair, some Twitter users criticized the athlete for “leaving” Nicole for a white woman whose public persona is partly dependent on her proximity to black culture (even though she And Nicole may have separated in May 2022). Others, including some Swifties, have disparaged Nicole in comparison to Swift, and blamed the pop star as an “upgrade” to Kelsey.

From the beginning of her public relationship with Kelsey, Nicole was scrutinized for dating outside her race, which she presumably referred to with the “traitorous” comment in her open letter. Similarly, his videos have faced ridicule and accusations of jealousy by many social media users. Meanwhile, others have praised Nicole for addressing the hate head-on.

Despite this, it seems the model has no interest in getting further involved in the drama, telling her followers, “Keep your heart safe even when they try to measure your character and test your limits . […] You don’t have to answer because there is strength in your silence.”
