Kayla Nicole’s Ex-Boyfriend Travis Kelce

If you are an NFL fan, you might be well-acquainted with the name Travis Kelce. 

Travis Micheal Kelce was born on October 5, 1989, to Ed and Donna Kelce. Ever since he was a kid, he had an excellent aptitude for athletics.

To top it off, his elder brother, Jason Kelce, is also an American football player and plays as the center for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Growing up, the two constantly competed against each other, which boosted their growth. Now they are one of the most accomplished siblings in the NFL and will be making history by playing against each other at the Super Bowl LVII. 

Collegiate Career

During his time at Cleveland Heights High School, Travis Kelce was a three-sport athlete: football, baseball, and basketball, but he was more interested in football which is why he decided to continue playing football. 

The athlete accepted the scholarship offer from the University of Cincinnati in 2008, despite having offers from Miami (OH), Akron, and Eastern Michigan.

Travis was then considered a 2-star recruit and redshirted in 2008. He played 11 games as a tight end and quarterback, setting many personal high records in receptions, receiving yards, touchdowns, and yards per reception.

Later in 2013, he won the title of the College Football Performance Awards Tight End of the Year. 

Professional Career

With excellent performances in his collegiate career, Travis Kelce was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs as the 63rd overall pick in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. 

He with his team have won several tournaments and titles. They won the Super Bowl LIV, and Kelce also holds the NFL record for the most receiving yards by the tight end in a season and the most consecutive seasons with 1,000 yards receiving by the tight end.  

The tight end has been selected for the Pro Bowl eight times and All-Pro’s first team four times. In addition, Travis Kelce was also named to the NFL’s 2010 All-Decade Team. 

Relationship & Exes

Travis Kelce and Kayla Nicole first revealed their relationship at a wedding in May 2017. The athlete and his then-girlfriend were attending the wedding of a fellow NFL player and then-teammate Jeremy Maclin to Adia Kuzma.

Following the event, Kayla was seen constantly attending his games and would be present at the after-parties.

The two were open about their relationship, and there were numerous photos and videos of them on the internet, which may be one of the reasons why the public was so invested in their relationship. 

In one of the Instagram Q&As held by Kayla, one of her followers asked her how the two first met, and she replied, “He Insta stalked Me. I DMed Him. The End.”

While the internet was all up for the lovely couple, Maya Benberry, Travis’s ex-girlfriend, was not pleased, which is not much of a surprise. 

Before dating Kayla, Travis starred in a show, “Catching Kelce,” in 2016, where women competed to get his heart.

Beating several women, Maya Benberry won the show and Kelce as the prize; however, the couple broke up soon after in January 2017. 

When Maya found out about the new couple, she tweeted accusing Travis of cheating, stating that they broke up five months ago, but the social media had claimed that he had been in a relationship with Kayla for six months. 

These claims were unheard of and forgotten as the public couldn’t stop gushing about Kayla and Travis.

Breakup & Patch-up

In August 2020, the news about the breakup between Travis Kelce and Kayla Nicole broke out. After being together for three years, fans and followers were perplexed by the sudden and unexplained breakup. 

Then, Kayla deleted all the pictures of her and the NFL star together off her social media as if to erase all the evidence of her relationship with Travis. 

Various rumors of the athlete cheating on Kayla surged up, but Kelce denied the claims and clarified that it was fake news, a lie, and not the reason for their separation.

Gladly, in November 2020, the model was seen in the games Kelce played, and later the footballer revealed that they were back together.

The couple broke up again, according to a video published on YouTube on May 26, 2022. The video says the couple broke up because Travis made her pay for everything they did during their relationship.

In January 2023, on ‘The Pivot’ podcast, Travis said, “I’m in the free market right now,” proving his break up with Kayla.

He further added, “I’m out there just enjoying life, focused on my profession. Got my feet up outside of football.” 

Besides he was also rumored to be in a romantic relationship with journalist Zuri Hall, but there was no actual confirmation of their relationship.

Net Worth & Salary

As mentioned earlier, Kayla Nicole is an accomplished woman with a net worth of $1 million. 

She is successful in modeling and journalism and also runs her own business and YouTube channel. Her earnings from her multiple professions must add quite a sum to her assets. 

She asked how Instagram influencers can afford designer clothes and nice jewelry in her Instagram story and mentioned about taking care of her finances independently. 

But things didn’t turn up well; people began criticizing and harassing Travis Kelce on the internet about how, even though he had signed a $57 million contract, he didn’t spoil her or help her financially. 

Kayla clapped back, saying she was happy with her man and the $50 outfit from Zara, but this further ignited the topic. Afterward, Travis spoke up, stating he cares for her, but she is independent.
