Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Jokes About Who Taylor Swift Should Have Dated Instead of Travis Kelce

Robert Kraft, Taylor Swift

As Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce enjoy their romance, many celebrities have shared their opinion on the couple and whether or not they like them together. Now, Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, revealed who he believes Swift should've dated instead of Kelce.

Sports photographer and videographer @shotbystefon shared a video of Kraft talking about Swift's career and relationship on social media. In the clip, Kraft recalled Swift's first-ever stadium concert in 2010 at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts. He shared that he gave the singer a framed ticket from the concert when she appeared at the same stadium in late 2023 to see the Kansas City Chiefs play the Patriots.

Kraft then made a comment about Swift and Kelce, saying, "Maybe she should've been dating Gronk. He's better looking." Kraft was referring to Rob Gronkowski, who played as a tight end for the Patriots for many years, as well as a couple of seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before retiring from football.

Currently, Gronkowski is dating Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek, and they have been together since 2015.

One fan commented on the video, saying, "Agree w/@RobertKrafts re: Taylor and Gronk. Brilliant. I believe in miracles (with some magic thrown in for good measure)."

But someone else found Kraft's comment a little inappropriate due to Gronkowski's longtime romance, writing, "I’m sure Camille who’s been with Gronk since 2015 would be thrilled to hear Kraft thinks Taylor should be with her boyfriend."

Swift has been dating Kelce—who plays tight end for the Chiefs and just won the Super Bowl for the second year in a row—since sometime in the middle of 2023 after the two connected, thanks to his New Heights podcast shoutout. Before Kelce, Swift was in a long-term relationship with actor Joe Alwyn between 2016 and 2023.
