Picture this. The bill arrives at Travis and Taylor’s table at Nobu in sunny and outrageously expensive Malibu, a measly $3,850 lunch, and who’s the first to pull out their card? Travis Kelce, a Kansas City tight-end and 2x Super Bowl Champion earns approximately $14.25 million per year having signed a 4-year $57 million contract with the Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs. Taylor, on the other hand, puts those numbers to modest shame, predicted to earn almost Travis’ yearly salary PER SHOW on her upcoming Eras World Tour. Taylor’s reported net worth is a measly $740 million (according to Forbes) however experts predict after her approaching stadium tour and never ending relevance in the world of music, Taylor will soon be able to say: “singer, entertainer, billionaire.”
Kelce earns good coin off the field too, with brand deals with Nike, Old Spice, T-Mobile and Dick’s Sporting Goods, McDonalds, and Papa Johns we’re sure he takes home somewhere around the USD $20 million mark per year. Since the introduction of Taylor into Kelce’s life, there was a 400% spike in Travis Kelce jerseys, as well as gaining 1.3 million social media followers, all contributing to his popularity which can contribute to further brand deals and fatter pockets for Travis Kelce in the future. Kelce also owns a generously-sized $1 million house in Kansas City.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s not hard to figure out that Taylor Swift is rich, like rich rich, with an average income of around $150 million per year from shows, brand deals and music streaming services. Swift is also the face of CoverGirl, Keds, Diet Coke and Capital One. She has previously worked on advertisements for Target, AT&T, Walmart and Apple Music. Swift’s upcoming Eras Tour is predicted to skyrocket her net worth as the bulk of her personal equity is due to past tours. Her 2008 and 2009 Fearless Tour brought in $75 million, her ‘1989’ tour in 2015 was the highest-grossing tour in that year worldwide and ‘Reputation’ Tour in 2018 was the highest-grossing US stadium tour in history bringing in $345 million. Eras Tour is set to blow them out of the water. Taylor’s revenue from her singing is just as impressive as her massive real estate portfolio. These include a $30 million estate in Beverly Hills, $20 million duplex in New York City, $17 million mansion in Rhode Island. Swift also owns two private jets (which can now be used to fly in style to Kelce’s games around the country) valued at $40 million and $58 million respectively.
