Girls night out: Taylor Swift spotted in New York City with pals Blake Lively and Sophie Turner
Taylor Swift is rumored to be attending her new boyfriend Travis Kelce's NFL game at the MetLife Stadium on Sunday night
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK STATE: Taylor Swift was spotted having a girls' night out in New York City with her pals Blake Lively and Sophie Turner on Saturday, September 30.
The 33-year-old pop star is rumored to be attending her new boyfriend Travis Kelce's NFL game across the Hudson River on Sunday night.
Travis' Kansas City Jets will face the New York Jets on Sunday at East Rutherford's MetLife Stadium, the same sprawling venue where Taylor performed in May as part of her juggernaut Eras Tour.

Taylor, however, was seen enjoying the company of her female friends prior to her anticipated appearance at Travis' big game.
According to Page Six, they dined Saturday night at the Soho restaurant Emilio's Ballato with Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Travis' teammate Patrick Mahomes.
The Italian restaurant is owned by chef Emilio Vitolo Jr, who made headlines a few years ago for his brief romantic relationship with Katie Holmes.

Taylor was seen holding hands with Blake, who has been her close friend for years, as she dashed off to dinner at Emilio's Ballato on Saturday night.
In fact, Taylor's Saturday night outing came just hours after she attended Blake's daughter Inez's seventh birthday party. Blake Lively shares Inez with her husband Ryan Reynolds, as reported by Daily Mail.
In 2020, Taylor famously released a song titled 'Betty', inspired by Blake and Ryan's third child, who is now three years old.
Sophie Turner spotted partying with her girl gang
In the meantime, Taylor and Sophie have been getting along better due to their shared ex, Joe Jonas.
Taylor, who had a brief relationship with Joe in the summer of 2008, has allegedly written several songs about him, including the vicious 'Better Than Revenge'.
Joe and Sophie got married in 2019 and got divorced this month. Since then, they've been engaged in a contentious custody dispute that has made headlines.
Where their two young daughters will reside appears to be their main point of contention, with Joe supporting the US and Sophie arguing for her native UK.
Amid the intense public drama, Sophie took a break with her friends and went out on Saturday night in New York wearing a sleek outfit.
The 'Game of Thrones' actress, who walked the pavement, slid her lean frame into a tight wine-red leather dress that was cut up to mid-thigh to highlight her statuesque legs.
She enhanced the effect by putting on a pair of black leather stiletto boots, accessorizing with a Louis Vuitton handbag, and wearing her silky blonde hair down.

Taylor radiated a timeless sense of style in a little black dress that she belted around her svelte waist and complemented with a handbag and shoes in the same color.
Blake was seen holding hands with Robyn Lively, her 51-year-old older sister, as they joyfully crossed the street to get to dinner during the fun-filled evening.
While this was happening, Brittany got out of the car ahead of her friend Amanda Santa, who happens to be seeing Aaron Eanes, who, along with his brother Andre, manages Travis.
The night featured celebrities like Sophie's actress friend Olivia DeJonge, Taylor's friend Ashley Avignone, and Melanie Nyema, Taylor's backup singer who has been on her tour.
