Travis Kelce breaks silence on controversial viral moment with Julia Roberts during Taylor Swift concert

Travis Kelce opened up about the viral interaction on the latest episode of his New Heights podcast

Travis Kelce has finally broken his silence on the controversial viral moment with Julia Roberts during Taylor Swift's Dublin concert.

There's been a whole lot of chatter surrounding the pair ever since a video of them hanging out backstage at the 34-year-old 'Cruel Summer' singer's recent Eras Tour gig earlier this week (1 July) started making the rounds across social media.

Many Swifties took no time at all to slam the way Julia behaved in front of the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback while others were quick to defend her as simply being friendly.

There's been such a frenzy online concerning the encounter that even a lip-reader and body language expert have weighed in on the matter to share their expertise.

Body language expert, Darren Stanton, told Tyla that Julia came across 'really tactile'.

"Her hands are on him, with her fingers tickling the top of his chest. She’s more open than he is, but he’s still fairly open and appears to reciprocate her body language," the expert explained.

At one point in the interaction, Travis can be seen with his hands under Julia's elbows which, according to Darren, can be considered an 'intimate' gesture.

He also added that there seemed to be an 'instant connection' between the pair which was 'certainly' the case for Julia and reciprocated by Travis.

"He’s not pulling away or doing any facial expressions to say he’s not comfortable," the expert went on. "He isn’t showing any signs of fear either. It could be that Travis is in a little of awe, but I don’t get that impression.

"He took the meeting in his stride and reciprocated the body language back to her."

In short, Darren reckons there's 'a lot' of reciprocal liking going on between the two.

Since then, Travis himself has finally addressed the encounter and, hopefully, it will placate all the Swifties in a spiral once and for all.



Speaking on his New Heights podcast today (3 July), the NFL star opened up about what it was like hanging out with the Pretty Woman actor.

"I met Julia Roberts in Ireland, in Dublin," Travis shared with his dedicated listeners. "That was pretty cool."

He also revealed that the 'awesome' actor was 'having some fun' with fellow Hollywood icon Stevie Nicks in the VIP tent during the show.

Gushing about the Fleetwood Mac singer, he added: "She is every bit of whatever everyone makes her out to be.

"She is so awesome. … Some of these people you meet and you’re like, 'I don’t know what I’m doing here. You are unbelievable … and I am just a jabroni supporting his girlfriend'.

"It’s just so much fun."
