What's Kayla Nicole's dating life like now after Travis Kelce?

Since the sports power couple's relationship came to a halt in 2022, it doesn't seem Kayla has picked up anyone new yet. If she were to date again, she has made it clear that she isn't looking for another athlete.

Kayla didn't shade Travis with that confession or anything but admitted that she was “out of the athlete stage" when she appeared on the Behind the Lakes podcast.

"I would love to just date someone that — I do think that I’m attracted to men in positions of power, I do think that those types of men are attracted to me,” she added. “So, I would love to date an executive of a record label or a movie producer.”

For Kayla, she wants to be able to kick back and actually enjoy the sport with a potential suitor. "I don’t really need to go to any more sporting events because I have a jersey on with somebody’s name on the back," she explained.

Kayla might be claiming to be over athletes, but that hasn't stopped her from having total heart eyes for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. In November 2023, she reposted a video of a game, but it zoomed in on Jalen. She captioned it "Fly Eagles fly."

Immediately, fans teased that she was thirsting after him and Kayla didn't exactly deny it. Instead, she replied, "Y'all have eyes, too." No word on whether anything came out of that, but given her newfound aversion to athletes, likely not.

Why did Kayla and Travis Kelce breakup?

The pair have been relatively tight lipped about what really went down. As mentioned, Travis shut down rumors that he wasn't holding up his side of the financial bargain, but Kayla has given a little more to go off of.

Around the time of their breakup, Kayla admitted to struggling with her mental health, meaning the split may have given her a chance to spend some extra time focusing on herself.

"I had lost a substantial amount of weight within a very short amount of time. I wasn’t sleeping, I wasn’t eating. I was really abusing melatonin to sleep at night,” Nicole told PEOPLE. “I started going to therapy and quickly realized, ‘OK, it’s one thing to be physically fit, but it’s another thing to be mentally fit.’ You could be in the best shape of your life, but mentally, if you are not a healthy person, it’s not going to feel good.”

For what it's worth, Travis moved on to pop star Taylor Swift and their relationship has been all the media buzz lately. The two have become a power couple, taking over the sports and entertainment worlds.
