REVEALED: Why Taylor Swift wasn’t allowed to see Travis Kelce the night before the Super Bowl… with pop star set to make final journey to Las Vegas today after flying to LA from Tokyo

Taylor Swift landed in Los Angeles on Saturday before her final trip to Las Vegas today amid NFL rules preventing her from seeing Travis Kelce the night before the Super Bowl.

Swift wrapped up her final Eras Tour concert in Japan on Friday night and began her mad dash 5,500 miles around the world to watch boyfriend Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers at Super Bowl LVIII.

But instead of heading straight from Tokyo to Vegas, the pop superstar made a pit stop on Saturday night to head to her home in LA, before taking an hour-long flight to Sin City later today.

And as revealed by TMZSwift probably did this since she wouldn’t be allowed to hook up with Kelce the night before his big game.

NFL rules prohibit players from staying with their wives or girlfriends on the nights before a game, rules that were tightened during Super Bowl week.

So the Chiefs and 49ers stars would have been on lockdown in the later hours of Saturday night, meaning Swift wouldn’t have been able to see her husband upon his arrival in Vegas – where she would have landed around 4 p.m.

That would only give her a handful of hours to get through customs and spend time with Travis before curfew kicked in.

As a result, it was probably the more tempting option to go to her property in California and spend the night there before they left for Nevada on Sunday.

Customs wouldn’t have been an issue, given guidelines would have allowed her to fly direct from Tokyo to Vegas, while the private jet parking dilemma probably wouldn’t have affected one of the biggest stars on the planet.

Swift is expected to complete the short trip from Burbank Airport hours before Kelce and Kansas City bid to win a second straight Super Bowl.

That will give her plenty of time to meet the likes of Jason and Kylie Kelce – who were caught enjoying a big casino win by USAOnlinePost.com on Saturday night – and Travis’ mum Donna.

Despite leaving Japan at 9.30pm on Saturday night, the music megastar arrived in LA earlier than when she left – arriving at 3.35pm on Saturday afternoon thanks to the time difference.

Swift returned from Japan after a busy week recording four sold-out shows at the Tokyo Dome – the last one on Saturday night.

The pop billionaire is also fresh off winning a record-breaking fourth ‘album of the year’ Grammy – handed out at a glitzy ceremony in LA as Kelce, 34, arrived in Las Vegas ahead of the Super Bowl.

Swift and Kelce’s families will share a Super Bowl suite this Sunday, a new report has confirmed, after the Kansas City star shelled out ‘well over $1 million’ to reserve the seats.

Kelce joked earlier this week about ‘losing all the money’ to make sure his family and friends could watch the game.

And according to TMZhe kept that promise with Taylor’s parents Andrea and Scott, his brother Austin and his girlfriend Sydney sitting down with Travis’ parents Donna and Ed, brother Jason and sister-in-law Kylie.

Taylor is also expected to be at the game, though it’s unclear if she’ll be in the suite Kelce paid for or if she’ll sit separately with friends.
