Adele defends Taylor Swift against backlash for attending NFL games to support her Super Bowl bound boyfriend Travis Kelce

Adele has spoken out in support of Taylor Swift, after the pop star received hate from NFL fans for attending football games to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce.

Adele, 35, told those criticising Taylor, 34, to ‘get a f***ing life’ and declared that the singer made the games ‘more enjoyable to watch’.

Taylor has been dating Kansas City Chiefs star Travis, 34, since last September, and quickly became of pop culture phenomenon.

Since attending her first Chiefs game in September, she has gone on to be pitchside at 12 of the Chiefs’ 18 games this season, amassing huge media attention.

The ‘Taylor Swift’ effect has reportedly generated £260million for the NFL since she began dating Travis, with female viewership increasing by 9 per cent – giving the league its best numbers on record among women.

Travis is now vying to win his third Super Bowl championship as his Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas on Sunday evening.

During her latest show at her Las Vegas residency on Saturday night, Adele discussed the upcoming game with the audience.

She admitted that she had initially been rooting for the 49ers to win, but had switched to supporting the Chiefs because of Taylor.

The Easy On Me hitmaker said: ‘I want the 49ers to win but I also want the Chiefs to win. I think I want the Chiefs to win just because Taylor Swift goes for them…’

As the crowd erupted into cheers, Adele then passionately declared: ‘And all of you that are complaining about Taylor Swift being at the games, get a f***ing life! It’s her f***ing man!’

She added: ‘She’s actually made it a bit more enjoyable to watch, because like I said I have no idea what’s going on.’

Fans were full of praise for the singer for her support for her fellow artist, and took to social media to gush: ‘We LOVE Adele for that, I always knew she was mother’ while another added: ‘Protect Adele at all costs.’

Several others enthusiastically declared: ‘Queen supporting queen’ and many excitedly demanded the pair join together to make music, saying: ‘now we want a collab’.
