Taylor Swift and Gigi Hadid have been close friends for years, but how do their boyfriends — Travis Kelce and Bradley Cooper, respectively — factor into the friendship? Pretty well, it would appear to Us.

Swift and Kelce’s relationship has topped headlines since they went public with their romance in 2023. As for Hadid and Cooper, the couple has not publicly addressed their relationship, but they have also been linked since last year.

Despite the BFFs' respective romances, Swift and Hadid have known each other for almost a decade as they were first photographed together at a Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2014.

In a May 2017 cover story for Harper’s Bazaar, Swift gushed about her friendship with Hadid. “As a friend, Gigi is one of the first people I go to for advice,” the “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart” singer told the outlet at the time. “She has this incredible ability to see all sides of a situation and simplify it for you, to see the complexity of people.”

In October 2023, a source exclusively told Us Weekly that Cooper, 49, and Hadid, 29, had used Swift’s Rhode Island beach house as a getaway pad amid speculation surrounding their May-December relationship. Cooper is 20 years Hadid’s senior.

“Taylor and Gigi have been close friends for years,” the insider said at the time, noting that when the “Down Bad” singer, 34, learned that Hadid and Cooper “could use a low-key place to meet up, she was more than happy to let them use her property on the coast of Rhode Island.”

The source noted that Hadid had already been to the coastal home “a bunch of times and thought it was the perfect place to get away from it all.” Cooper and Hadid were first linked in early October 2023 when they were spotted out together in New York City.

An insider revealed exclusively to Us in November 2023 that Gigi was hesitant about how quickly her friend’s relationship with the Kansas City Chiefs tight end was progressing. Swift and Kelce, 34, began dating in summer 2023 and took their relationship public in September of that year.

“One of the reasons Gigi hasn’t attended any of Travis’ games is because she doesn’t agree with the way Taylor has been acting with [him],” the source told Us at the time, though noted that Hadid “adores” Swift.

“She feels like Taylor is doing too much, too soon,” the source added.

Bradley Is a Huge Eagles Fan

Cooper, a Pennsylvania native, is an avid Eagles fan — the team Travis’ brother, Jason Kelce, played for before announcing his retirement from the NFL earlier this year. Cooper even watched the Philly squad defeat the New England Patriots in the 2018 Super Bowl as a guest of owner Jeffrey Lurie.

The Maestro director and star notably said in a November 2023 interview with Howard Stern that he would rather see the Philadelphia Eagles win the Super Bowl than take home an Oscar. When Stern asked Cooper the “big question” about which victory he’d prefer, Cooper replied, “Eagles Super Bowl victory. I know, I’m sick.”

Cooper’s choice got the seal of approval from Travis’ sister-in-law, Kylie Kelce, who wrote in the comments section, “Without hesitation. 🤌🥹.”

Following the April 19 release of Swift’s 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, the foursome spent some time together on vacation in California.

The information came by way of Travis’ mom, Donna Kelce, who shared during the QVC’s Age of Possibility summit in Las Vegas on April 24 that she had received a picture of the group enjoying some downtime in the coastal town of Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Hadid and Cooper stepped out for a date night at Swift’s final Eras Tour show in Paris on May 12. Per social media footage, the couple was joined by Kelce as they watched the show from a private box at Paris La Défense Arena.

The trio sang and danced along to the pop star’s biggest hits while she performed her 87th show on the Eras Tour. Fittingly, this corresponds with Travis' Chiefs jersey number.

While recapping the concert on his "New Heights" podcast later that month, Travis gushed over spending time with the "amazing" couple. "Did you talk about the Eagles?" Jason asked his brother, who replied, "Of course."

Kelce admitted that he hadn’t asked Cooper for any tips as he prepared for his first-ever acting role in Ryan Murphy’s Grotesquerie.

“No, I didn’t, and you’re right, I should have,” Kelce said to Access Hollywood at May 2024’s KelceJam in Kansas City. “BC is an unbelievable actor and director in his own right. I guess I’m just too shy to ask him for advice in those kinds of situations. I don’t know if I’d even be able to understand what he’s talking about.”

When asked if he had “converted” Cooper, a notorious Eagles fan, to root for the Kansas City Chiefs, Kelce said he hadn’t. “No, I didn’t. He’s a Philly fan and I don’t think there’s converting any Philly fan into a Chiefs fan,” the Super Bowl champion said. “In that regard, go Birds, but it’s Chiefs Kingdom all the way, baby.”
