Swift is expected to attend the biggest event on the US sporting calendar on Sunday to cheer on her boyfriend.
Global pop star Taylor Swift is back in the US from Japan, fueling expectations of a highly anticipated appearance at the Super Blow to cheer on boyfriend Travis Kelce, news outlets have reported.
After completing a sold-out show in Tokyo, Swift's flight landed in Los Angeles on Saturday, boosting fans' hopes to see Kelce take the field for the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday's game in Las Vegas.
Gossip site TMZ posted a grainy photo of Swift boarding a waiting SUV at Los Angeles International Airport before taking off in a motorcade of vehicles with tinted windows.
Swift's exact location has been a source of widespread speculation on social media, with internet watchers posting regular updates about a flight en route from Tokyo to LA.
The Japanese embassy weighed in on Swift's trip, posting on social media that if the pop star departs Tokyo the evening after her concert, she “must conveniently arrive in Las Vegas before the start of the Super Bowl.”
Swift, one of the most successful music artists of all time with 14 Grammy wins worldwide and hundreds of millions of album sales, has attended 12 American football games to watch Gells play.
NFL officials have credited Swift's presence at games with a sudden surge in the sport's popularity among young women.
Swift's appearance at the 58th Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will help drive audiences to the NFL Showcase, the biggest event on the American sports calendar that continues to draw more than 100 million viewers to new heights.
Gells joked earlier this week that he was under pressure to win after Swift picked up her fourth Album of the Year Grammy for Midnights on Sunday.
“She's unbelievable,” Kelce said at a news conference on Monday.
“She is rewriting the history books herself. I told her to stop haggling and come home with some hardware.
