Travis Kelce’s Longtime Girlfriend Rips Officiating Crew Over Calls In Super Bowl LV

The longtime girlfriend of Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, Kayla Nicole, is speaking out after the Chiefs lost Super Bowl LV to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9 Sunday evening at Raymond James Stadium.

Nicole took to social media to voice her displeasure about some of the calls from the game, including a holding call that the officials didn’t call.

Kayla didn’t stop there with her issues with the officiating. She also went on Instagram and posted a message about holding.

“Holding: the illegal restraining of another player who is not in possession of the ball,” she wrote, according to People. “Holding is prohibited in most football leagues, unless you’re playing against Tom Brady.”

Nicole’s issues with the officials continued during the game, as she tweeted out, “If yall wanted to see the Chiefs vs the refs just say that.

The model — who runs fitness brand Strong Is Sexy — continued her criticism on Twitter before offering her congratulations to the Buccaneers for their second Super Bowl victory.

“Congrats to the @Buccaneers,” she added in a later tweet. “Tough game to watch but y’all got it.”

  1. Most of the calls were on the KC D because they had no clue where to go, what to do…their DC needs to get a refresher course in game planning…Bucs O was rolling all day til they shut it down in the 4th Q – and even then they ran the rock for first downs.
    KC’s O-Line was the 2nd most penalized during the regular season for offensive holding…and that was mostly the starters during the season. So with backup O linemen at several positions the refs called very few holding penalties on KC even though Mahomes was scrambling for his life from the 2nd Q onward…huh? Wha? No bitching about that though. You can call holding on the O line on almost every play, we all know the old adage, but seriously…KC caught a lot of breaks.

  2. Not completely off topic, but Randi Mahomes (the ‘QB Producer’, as she likes to display on the back of one of her jerseys), mom of Patrick, also was bitching about the refs, and sent this tweet to Brady’s wife, Gisele, saying “If you have to have the ref on your team is that really winning!!!”. Mom being a mom, but this is the pinnacle of pro football; a little less than classy. Maybe take a page from your son, who has a lot of class.

  3. Just keeps proving my theory the more a woman posts bikini shots on IG and has tattoos in the most intimate of places…the higher chances she’s going to be a nag from hell. Better Kelce than me.
