Travis Kelce was "shocked" when Taylor Swift changed the lyrics to her song Karma to reference him during a recent concert.

The American football star has revealed that he was not completely unaware of Taylor's surprise lyric change during her Buenos Aires Eras Tour show on Saturday, however, he was still taken aback.

"Yeah, no, had no clue. Well, I might have had a little bit of a clue but definitely when I heard it come out of her mouth, (it) still shocked me," Travis, 34, said on his podcast, New Heights. "I was like, 'Oh, shh,' she really just said that."

During the performance, the pop star, 33, changed the lyrics to her 2022 song Karma from, "Karma is the guy on the screen coming straight home to me," to, "Karma is the guy on the Chiefs coming straight home to me."

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end's reaction was caught on camera and has since gone viral on social media. The clip shows the sports star grinning and covering his face with his hands before he began dancing to the song as the crowd cheered.

Elsewhere in the podcast episode, Travis apologised to Taylor's 71-year-old dad, Scott Swift, for leaving him hanging when he tried to high-five him after the Karma lyric change.

"Mr. Swift, I apologise, big guy," he said. "I never miss a high-five too. It's the most electric thing you can do at an event."

During the same concert, Travis and the All Too Well hitmaker were spotted sharing a kiss backstage.

Taylor will next perform in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Friday.
