Simone Biles found Packers-Chiefs experience with Taylor Swift ‘weird’
Simone Biles, the four-time Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics, had a unique experience watching her husband, Jonathan Owens, play for the Green Bay Packers in their victory over the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this season. Accustomed to performing in front of millions, Biles traded the spotlight for a seat in the VIP box at an NFL game.
The matchup had an interesting twist, as Taylor Swift was in the opposite box, supporting her partner Travis Kelce, who plays as a tight end for the Chiefs. Despite the friendly rivalry, the Packers, led by Owens as a safety, secured a 27-19 victory on December 4, with Owens making five tackles during the game.
While Swift has been a regular attendee at Chiefs games, Biles admitted feeling somewhat out of her comfort zone watching from the stands, acknowledging that it was not her usual activity. Despite the unusual setting, Biles expressed her understanding of the excitement for fans, even though the Packers’ success may not have been well-received by Chiefs supporters.
Biles and Owens got married in April 2023 in an intimate courthouse ceremony in Houston, later celebrating with a second ceremony in Mexico. Reflecting on the wedding, Biles shared that it was the most fun she had ever had, emphasizing the importance of making it intimate and special. She highlighted that the experience surpassed even her Olympic victories, stating, “It was the greatest feeling ever.” The couple’s relationship started after Owens found Biles on the dating app Raya in 2020, and they have since built a strong and joyful connection.
