Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are pictured enjoying a VERY romantic date night in Lake Como with private dinner under the stars – as Kansas City Chiefs teammate Harrison Butker is slammed for ‘bigoted’ speech quoting the singer

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce looked as loved-up as ever as they enjoyed a romantic break to Lake Como, Italy this week – amid a break in the European leg of her The Eras Tour.

The superstar singer and the Kansas City Chiefs star, both 34, were seen enjoying an alfresco private dinner date outside a €20,000 a night villa at the five star Grand Hotel Tremezzo – just days after Travis’ teammate Harrison Butker was slammed for a ‘bigoted and misogynistic’ speech quoting the singer’s lyrics.

A smitten Taylor stared into Travis’s eyes as they held hands across the table before tucking into their meals.

Adding to the fairytale of the evening, candles were seen surrounding the table as the couple chatted.

The tight end later defended filming his girlfriend’s performance with his camera flash on. Jason described it as an ‘Ed Kelce move,’ in reference to the brothers’ dad.

‘You know, the settings on the camera … if it’s dark, it’s going to automatically put the flash on. I don’t understand, I was just trying to get some good video, some good memories,’ he laughed.

‘I don’t know if [the shows] are getting better or if I just keep forgetting how they are [but] it was electric in there … It looks like they’re having so much fun up there, and they’re absolutely killing it.’

The three-time Super Bowl champ, who started dating the pop star last summer, has been in attendance at several Eras Tour shows after Swift showed up for him at almost every Chiefs game last season.

The romantic outing comes after Kansas City Chiefs star Butker, 28, received an onslaught from Swift fans for using her lyrics in his controversial commencement speech.

Butker delivered the speech at Benedictine College on May 11 and was immediately slammed for criticizing women, taking aim at the LGBTQ+ community, and criticizing US President Joe Biden for supporting abortion.

Without naming the 14-time Grammy winner, Butker referenced Swift’s relationship with his teammate  Kelce before quoting her 2022 song Bejeweled.

‘As my teammate’s girlfriend says: Familiarity breeds contempt,’ Butker told the graduates. Upon learning about the mention, Swifties quickly jumped on social media to call Butker out for his message.

‘Who’s going to tell Harrison Butker you can’t quote Taylor Swift when being a misogynistic d***head,’ one user wrote on X.

‘The fact that Harrison Butker who plays on the chiefs was this homophobic AND brought up a Taylor Swift lyric to prove his point that women should be homemakers and that abortion is murder is disgusting,’ a third noted.

Ever open about his conservative Catholic worldviews, Butker insisted that women should stay at home and raise children instead of working. He also urged male students to ‘be unapologetic about your masculinity.’

‘For the ladies present today, congratulations on an amazing accomplishment,’ Butker said in his 20-minute address. ‘I want to speak directly to you because I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolical lies told to you. How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career?’

‘Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.’

Butker added that his wife Isabelle ‘would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and mother.’ He then praised his partner for ‘[embracing] one of the most important titles of all: Homemaker.’

‘Fight against the cultural emasculation of men,’ He urged the male graduates. ‘Part of what plagues our society is this lie that has been told to you that men are not necessary in the home or our communities. As men, we set the tone of the culture, and when that is absent, disorder, dysfunction, and chaos set in.’

Neither Swift nor Kelce have commented on the controversial speech.
