Not so fast, Swifties: There's still no reliable confirmation that Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are dating.

Rumors that the two were potentially a new item first swirled after The Messenger reported they were "hanging out," weeks after the Kansas City Chiefs tight end revealed he had tried to give the "Cruel Summer" singer a bracelet with his number at one of her concerts, but was unsuccessful.

Though Taylor is notoriously private about her love life, Travis' brother Jason Kelce, also a football player, briefly confused the internet as he joked about the potential couple.

Speaking on 94WIP Sports Radio, Jason was asked how his brother and Taylor are doing, to which he first coyly replied with: "It's hard to answer because I don't know a lot about what's happening in Travis' love life."

Though he said he tries to "stay out of that world" he then seemingly confirmed the romance when he said: "I think they're doing great."

He went on: "I think it's all one hundred percent true," and even added: "I hope this thing goes the mile." Jason eventually fessed up: "No, I'm joking. I don't know what's happening."

Confused fans were quick to throw their support for the possible couple , and wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: "Dynamic duo," and: "Oh I am so excited to hear songs about this," as well as: "Damn Trav! He took his shot! Good on him."

This isn't the first time Jason, himself a center for the Philadelphia Eagles, addresses his brother's love life since it was thrust into the spotlight, and subsequently Swiftie nation.

However, he initially told retired NFL star Tony Gonzalez during a post-game conversation earlier this month: "I've seen these rumors. I cannot comment," adding: "Ever since Catching Kelce everybody's been infatuated with Travis' love life. I don't really know what's going on there, but I know Travis is having fun and we'll see what happens with whoever he ends up with."

Before the latest chatter, Taylor was previously romantically linked to 1975 frontman Matty Healy, for what was a brief, summer fling that Swifties were not very happy about.
