Jason Kelce speaks on Travis and Taylor Swift’s ‘crazy’ level of fame: ‘Can’t be a normal person’

Jason Kelce doesn’t think his brother, Travis Kelce, can be a “normal person” anymore given the attention the Kansas City Chiefs tight end’s romance with Taylor Swift has gotten.

The former Philadelphia Eagles center, 36, said on Andrew Santino’s “Whiskey Ginger” podcast Friday that he thought life had gotten “crazy” for him and his wife, Kylie Kelce, before but “Travis and Taylor have taken it to another level.”

“Kylie and I think we have it bad and then we go hang out with one of them for a second,” he further explained. “This is a whole other situation here. … Like, you can’t be a normal person at that point.”

Jason’s comments on the downside of the spotlight come after he and Kylie, 32, made headlines in May when an angry and drunk fan started harassing them for not taking a picture with her.

In a video of the debacle, the woman could be seen aggressively yelling at the pair as Kylie told her off.

“I can smell the alcohol on your breath,” the mom of three told the fan. “You’re embarrassing yourself!”

The woman — identified as Andreé Goldberg — later apologized for her “out of character” behavior.

Jason also mentioned on the “Whiskey Ginger” podcast that while everyone is “evolving” because of the changing circumstances, Travis, 34, has not let fame affect who he is at his core.

“I haven’t seen him change one bit,” the “New Heights” podcast co-host reflected. “He stayed true to himself. He’s still humble. He treats everyone with the utmost respect.”

Travis explained during his appearance on “Good Morning America” this week that he’s able to remain “grounded” because he has the right people in his life.

“When you have good family and friends around you, it makes that aspect of life that much easier,” he noted. “I’ve always been a very grounded guy.”

The Super Bowl champ added, “It might not come off like that when I’m playing football, but off the field, I just want to be a genuine person.”

Travis began dating Swift, also 34, last July. They confirmed their romance when the “Shake It Off” singer cheered Travis on at a September 2023 game at Arrowhead Stadium.

While Travis was already a celebrity in the professional sports world, his fame skyrocketed once he and Swift showed how serious they were about each other.

At the onset of the relationship, even Travis’ mom said her youngest son had “embraced” his stardom.

Donna Kelce said in November 2023, “I think the attention is just part of the whole thing. … As long as he can handle it, I don’t have any problems with it.”
