"I know I was begged not to mention Taylor Swift, but I just want to say, you always look so great with her in the box when she was at the games with you," she remarked, referring to the VIP box sightings that have sparked excitement among fans.

The pair's relationship, which has captivated fans and media alike, first caught public attention at a Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium in September last year.
