After breaking up with Travis Kelce last year, Kayla Nicole has been living life to the fullest. The influencer’s career has grown exponentially over the years, and her success is being applauded by fans.
What Is Kayla Nicole’s Job?
The Pepperdine University grad has always had an interest in sports, even before she and Travis started dating in 2017. According to PEOPLE, Kayla has worked as an on-air sports reporter for ESPN and Barstool Sports. Previously, Kayla has been seen covering NBA and NFL games, reporting from the sidelines. Additionally, the outlet noted that she has worked in entertainment news, having interviewed Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler in 2017.
Nowadays, Kayla is focused on her fashion career, modeling and working as an ambassador for brands such as Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty, Crocs, and Revolve.
Now that she has a recognizable platform, the journalist uses her voice to spread positive messages to fans. In October 2023, she made headlines for reading a powerful open letter to Black women, addressing the scrutiny that they endure.
“Dear Black girl, they may call you a traitor for falling in love,” Kayla began in her note. “You’ll hope the ones closest will protect you, but you will quickly find out that people don’t protect what they don’t value. They’ll say you’re too much … and in the same breath tell you that you’re not enough. Not successful enough, not wholesome enough, maybe not even intelligent enough. They’ll say you deserve the backlash and embarrassment. Because of your blackness, you should have known better. They’ll even try to tie your value to your net worth.”
She concluded the message by pointing out that this hardship is “only a small chapter” in life and that when she feels “most inadequate,” Kayla reminds herself that she “will always be more than enough.”
What Is Kayla Nicole’s Net Worth?
Kayla has not verified where her income stands. However, multiple outlets have reported her net worth to be $2 million as of 2023.
After the reporter’s on-and-off relationship with Travis ended, a baseless report from Barstool Sports surfaced in 2022, claiming that the Kansas City Chiefs tight end didn’t pay for some of his and Kayla’s bills when they were together. The exes slammed the rumor, with Kayla tweeting, “Not sure where y’all got this nonsense from, but it’s absurd and very false.”
For his part, Travis told fans not to “buy into that s**t” during his appearance on “The Pivot Podcast” at the time.
“I would never say that I was supporting her. She had a very financially stable life and what she was doing in her career,” he explained. “But you’ve got to be crazy if you’d think I would never [help] or gave her a couple thousand to grab some food or she gave me some money to go get some food. … We were in a relationship for five years. A hundred dollars here, a hundred dollars there wasn’t even thought about.”
