Taylor Swift landed in Los Angeles on Saturday before her final trip to Las Vegas today, amid NFL rules preventing her from seeing Travis Kelce the day before the Super Bowl.
Swift finished her final concert of the Eras tour in Japan on Friday night and began her mad dash across the world to watch her boyfriend Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.
Yet instead of heading straight from Tokyo to Vegas, the pop superstar made a stop to head home to Los Angeles on Saturday night, before boarding an hour-long flight to Sin City later during the day.
And as TMZ revealed, Swift probably did it because she reportedly wasn’t allowed to join Kelce the day before his big match.
NFL rules prohibit players from staying with their wives or girlfriends the night before a game, rules that were reinforced during Super Bowl week.
The Chiefs and 49ers stars would therefore have been confined until the late hours of Saturday night, meaning Swift would not have been able to see her man when she arrived in Vegas – where she would have landed around 4 p.m.
That would have only given him a few hours to get through customs and spend time with Travis before the curfew went into effect.
As a result, traveling to his property in California and spending the night there before flying to Nevada on Sunday was probably the most appealing option.
Customs wouldn’t have been a problem given that the guidelines would have allowed him to fly directly to Vegas from Tokyo, while the private jet parking dilemma probably wouldn’t have affected one of the larger stars of the planet.
Swift is expected to complete the short trip from Burbank Airport hours before Kelce and Kansas City attempt to win a second straight Super Bowl.
This will give him enough time to meet Jason and Kylie Kelce – who were captured by Dailymail.com enjoying a big casino win on Saturday night – and Donna, Travis’ mother.
Although she left Japan at 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, the music megastar arrived in Los Angeles earlier than when she left – landing at 3:35 p.m. Saturday afternoon thanks to the time difference.
Swift returned from Japan after a busy week that saw four sold-out performances at the Tokyo Dome – the last on Saturday night.
The pop billionaire also just won a record fourth “album of the year” Grammy – presented at a glitzy ceremony in Los Angeles as Kelce, 34, arrived in Las Vegas ahead of the Super Bowl.
Swift and Kelce’s families will share a Super Bowl suite this Sunday, a new report has confirmed, after the Kansas City star shelled out “well over a million dollars” to reserve the seats.
Kelce joked earlier this week that he “lost all the money” to make sure his family and friends could watch the game.
And according to TMZ, he kept that promise with Taylor’s parents Andrea and Scott, his brother Austin and his girlfriend Sydney ready to sit down with Travis’ parents Donna and Ed, his brother Jason and his step-daughter. sister Kylie.
Taylor is also expected to be at the game, although it’s unclear whether she’ll be in the suite Kelce paid for or whether she’ll be seated separately with friends.
