Jeff Jarrett: Taylor Swift Babysat My Daughters During Wife's Cancer Battle

Jeff Jarrett: Taylor Swift Babysat My Daughters During Wife’s Cancer Battle

Pro wrestling legend Jeff Jarrett recently opened up about the invaluable support Taylor Swift provided his family during a trying period.

During an interview on WREG’s Live at 9, Jarrett, now a competitor for All Elite Wrestling, reminisced about how the pop star spent time with his three daughters while his wife, Jill Gregory, battled breast cancer. Swift’s presence brought comfort and joy to the family during this challenging time.

Jarrett, a WWE Hall of Famer, shared heartfelt memories of Swift’s kindness, describing her as a “friend of the family” who was “very good to our family during a very, very dark period.”

“Taylor was like a big sister,” Jarrett recalled. “She came over, took the girls baking cookies, and just hung out at the house. I can’t say enough good things about Taylor.”

Gregory passed away in May 2007, seven months after the release of Swift’s debut album. Despite the sadness of that period, Jarrett cherishes the bond formed between Swift and his daughters — Joslyn, Jaclyn, and Jerlyn.

While Swift’s fame has surged since those early days, Jarrett enjoys keeping up with her journey. “She’s just a sweetheart. I still call her ‘our girl,’ and now she’s hanging in the NFL circles,” he said, referring to Swift’s relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce .

Jarrett emphasized that Swift’s acts of kindness were purely out of the goodness of her heart, with no financial motivation. “I can tell you this right now, she was never on the Jeff Jarrett payroll,” he stated. “So, technically not a babysitter.”

The deep bond between Swift and Jarrett’s daughters was evident when Jaclyn appeared in the music video for Swift’s song, “Mine,” in 2010. Reflecting on the experience, Jarrett shared with Fightful in 2011, “The ‘Mine’ video is so creative, and my daughter, Jaclyn, looked like a little Taylor. Taylor, being as bold as she always is, just said, ‘I want Jaclyn in the video.'”

Jarrett gladly agreed, and the family traveled to Maine for the shoot. “You had to turn over your cell phone on set and all that stuff. It was a good experience for the kids,” he recalled.

Reflecting on the music video, Jarrett praised Swift’s remarkable talent and business acumen. “Not only is she uber-creative as an artist, but she also thinks like a businesswoman,” he said. “Those two skill sets combined, you rarely see. She deserves all the success she has.”

Currently, Kelce was spotted at one of Swift’s Eras Tour shows in the Netherlands. Kelce was seen tearing up as Swift performed a special surprise song mashup seemingly dedicated to him.

Swift has been using her surprise song sets recently to blend several of her biggest hits. During this particular show, she performed a medley of “Mary’s Song (Oh My My My),” “So High School,” and “Everything Has Changed.”

Fans quickly deduced that the combination of songs was likely dedicated to Kelce, with lyrics that allude to their relationship. In “Mary’s Song (Oh My My My),” Swift sings, “I’ll be 87, you’ll be 89,” referencing Kelce’s jersey number and their birth years. In “So High School,” Swift croons, “You know how to ball, I know Aristotle.” The third song reflects on a love that shifts one’s perspective on life.

In the comments of the video, fans sweetly acknowledged the viral moment and celebrated Swift and Kelce’s relationship. “Thank you so much for not gatekeeping this. So beautiful 😍 they’re so in love ❤️,” one person wrote.

“I can not imagine how emotional it must be for him to see his love perform for him and thousands of others who adore her. I would be emotional too,” another fan shared.

Kelce, joined by teammate Patrick Mahomes and his wife, Brittany Mahomes, was seen seemingly wiping away a tear and being comforted by Brittany, who observed her friend having a tender moment.

Over the weekend, Kelce was also spotted attending Swift’s show on Friday night. The NFL star and singer were adorably caught kissing as they exited Johan Cruijff Arena.

The sweet interactions come a full year after Swift and Kelce’s love story began at her Eras Tour performance at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. Last year, she foreshadowed her own future by sharing pictures from her July 4th bash and joking about how the gathering was a celebration for all the “independent” girls, only to add that she was headed to Missouri next.

Moving to the present, the pair has become one of the hottest couples around, with Kelce recently making his on-stage debut at the Eras Tour in London and appearing at countless concerts around the world in support of his girlfriend.

A source recently shared how the “So High School” crooner and her NFL star boyfriend pulled off his surprise appearance at Wembley Stadium and how the experience bonded them as a couple. “It was definitely a new, defining point in their relationship and they had a blast getting the chance to [share] a personal side of themselves with the world,” the source said. “They are so happy with how everything turned out and loved seeing all the fan reactions.”

The source added, “It was a very special experience for them and also hints at what their future might hold together.”
