Tony Gonzalez tried his best to get the scoop on the Travis Kelce-Taylor Swift dating rumors.
After the Eagles’ 34-28 win over the Vikings on “Thursday Night Football,” Gonzalez, a Hall of Fame tight end and now an analyst on the pregame, halftime and postgame shows, asked Jason Kelce about his brother’s dating life.
Earlier in the week, a report from The Messenger emerged that Travis was “quietly hanging out” with the “Blank Space” singer.
So, Gonzalez tried to get information from Jason about what’s actually happening.
“So you talk about family, I have a 15-year-old daughter, and she’s a big fan of a certain pop star, and you have a family member — a brother — and I’ve been hearing rumors, maybe some stuff. Can you comment?” Gonzalez asked.
Jason, for his part, replied with a cagey “Style.”
“I’ve seen these rumors, I cannot comment,” the Eagles center said.
Analyst Richard Sherman even had more fun with it: “What are we going on TMZ? What are we doing?!” he asked.
But, undeterred by his co-host’s astonishment, Gonzalez followed up and said the information was for his daughter.
“Ever since ‘Catching Kelce,’ everybody has been infatuated with Travis’ love life,” Jason replied. “I don’t really know what’s going on there. I know Trav is having fun.”
“We’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with,” he added with a big laugh.
Host Clarissa Thompson joked that she could get Gonzalez a job with her on the entertainment show “Extra,” where she also works.
On an episode of the Kelce brothers’ “New Heights” podcast a week before the dating rumors started to swirl, Travis said he was still “searching” for love.
“I thought you were looking for love?” Jason said.
“Yeah, that too. Still searching for it,” Travis replied with a laugh.
“F—k! 10 years later and still nothing.”
Earlier this summer, Kelce admitted to trying — and failing — to give Swift his phone number at an Eras Tour concert.
“She doesn’t meet anybody — or at least she didn’t want to meet me. So, I took it personal.”
Only time will tell if the All-Pro tight end and the world-famous pop star will have their own “Love Story.”
