Gigi Hadid is setting the record straight on how she sees her close friend Taylor Swift’s relationship with Travis Kelce. Days after Us Weeklydevoted its cover story to her alleged disapproval over the speed in which Swift and Kelce’s romance has developed, the model commented on an Instagram to share her real views.
Perez Hilton had posted about the Us Weekly story on Instagram with the headline: “Gigi Hadid ‘Doesn’t Agree With the Way’ Taylor Swift Is Handling Travis Kelce Romance!” Hadid wrote in the comments, “I’m a couple days late to this tag.. but didn’t the press try this last week w Selena? Let it be.. we are all over the moon for our girl. Period. ❤️🔥”
Us Weekly’s source had alleged, regarding Hadid, that “one of the reasons Gigi hasn’t attended any of Travis’ games is because she doesn’t agree with the way Taylor has been acting with [him].”
The outlet claimed that while Hadid “adored” Swift, she wasn’t keen on rooting for Kelce as Swift’s long-term romantic partner: “She feels like Taylor is doing too much, too soon,” the source said.
Of course, Hadid made it clear that’s very false. This is the first time a friend of Swift’s has spoken out about her relationship.
“Neither of them expected them to move quickly, but they have been inseparable since they first connected,” the source said. “They see each other as much as they can during this busy season.”
“When they are not together, they are constantly FaceTiming and texting,” the source continued. “Friends around them think it is very cute and they are a great match. Taylor is having a lot of fun with the wives and girlfriends in the league. Brittany Mahomes has welcomed her with open arms and has really been the ring leader merging Taylor, her friends and the girl groups together.”
