Travic Kelce’s ex-girlfriend, sports presenter Kayla Nicole has addressed being trolled online amid the NFL player’s rumoured relationship with pop star Taylor Swift.
Nicole, 31, posted a video statement on Instagram on Monday 9 October, appearing to comment on the “backlash and embarrassment” she has faced online since Swift and Kelce, both 33, were linked together last month.
Nicole and the Kansas City Chiefs tight-end reportedly dated on-and-off for five years, from 2017 until 2022.
Since news of Kelce’s alleged romance with the “Anti-Hero” singer broke, Nicole’s followers noted that Swifties – as Swift’s fans are known – were allegedly pitting the women against each other, and leaving “immature and unnecessary comments” including Taylor Swift GIFs under her Instagram posts.
Now, the fitness influencer has shared a statement in response to the “backlash and embarassment” in a nearly four-minute-long video addressed to Black women.
