Kayla Nicole, the former girlfriend of NFL star Travis Kelce, is showing the world that she is living her best life in the midst of rumors surrounding her ex’s new romance with Taylor Swift. The 31-year-old model and on-air host recently posted a series of stunning Instagram photos in a backless dress while vacationing in Tuscany, Italy. Her carefree demeanor and glamorous style sent a powerful message of self-confidence.
In the photos, Kayla Nicole donned a brown halter backless dress that accentuated her beauty and showcased her radiant smile. She completed her look with gold earrings, a matching bracelet, and bedazzled sandals. The picturesque setting of Tuscany provided a beautiful backdrop to her photos, capturing the essence of a perfect getaway.
Captioning one of the images, Kayla Nicole playfully wrote, “I actually prefer my dinner in a different country,” showing that she’s truly enjoying her time abroad.
In addition to the photos, Kayla Nicole shared more of her Italian adventure on her Instagram Story. One post featured a slow-motion video of herself gracefully walking away from the camera, giving her followers a closer look at her elegant outfit.
The glamorous vacation pictures come just a day after Kayla Nicole made headlines with an open letter addressing the public’s reaction to Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s budding romance. In her powerful statement, she talked about the “backlash and embarrassment” she had endured because of the newfound attention.
Having been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Kelce from 2017 to 2022, Kayla Nicole candidly shared the struggles she had faced, revealing that she had been told she’s “not successful enough, not wholesome enough … not intelligent enough.” She affirmed her worth, reminding herself that she has always been “more than enough.” Another one of Kelce’s exes, Maya Benberry, alleges she has received death threats from Swifties.
Addressing her followers, she conveyed that life’s challenges are just a small chapter in one’s story. Kayla Nicole emphasized that there’s “power” in her “silence” and that she doesn’t need to “engage” in the turmoil or one-sided narratives.
Travis Kelce has yet to respond to Kayla Nicole’s heartfelt post, but he hasn’t been the only one to notice her strength. Patrick Mahomes’ brother, Jackson Mahomes, left several heart emojis in the comments as a show of support.
During her relationship with Kelce, Kayla Nicole had grown close to the Mahomes family, particularly building a friendship with Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
In recent weeks, Kayla Nicole unfollowed Brittany on Instagram, a move that raised eyebrows among fans. This development came after Brittany was spotted at the Chiefs game in New York City with Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, and Sophie Turner, further fueling rumors about Swift and Kelce’s romance.
Taylor Swift, who has remained tight-lipped about her relationship with Travis Kelce, recently supported him at NFL games in Missouri and New Jersey. However, she did not attend the recent Chiefs game against the Minnesota Vikings. Page Six confirmed that Swift and Kelce celebrated his 34th birthday together in Kansas City ahead of the game. After a relaxed evening, Swift returned to her home in Nashville, Tennessee.
While Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s relationship continues to make headlines, Kayla Nicole’s radiant display of self-assuredness serves as a reminder that she’s moving forward confidently, making her own happiness a priority.
