Kayla Nicole, who has dated Kelce since 2017, reportedly split in 2022. She left a rumor in May that the Chiefs star made her «pay for half of everything.»

«How crazy is that?» Kelce said. «Don’t believe that s—.»

«I would never say that I was endorsing her,» he said. «She had a very stable life financially and what I was doing in her career. You have to be crazy if you think I never helped her or gave her a couple bucks to buy some food or she gave me some money.» We were in a relationship for five years. A hundred dollars here and a hundred dollars there was not even thought of, which is ridiculous.»
Kelce confirmed that she was back on the field, but was not looking to date anyone at this time. He said that he was focused on soccer and trying to just enjoy life and not get bogged down in anything else.
«I’m in the free market right now. I’m just enjoying life, focused on my profession,» he said.
