Brittany Mahomes and Jackson Mahomes found themselves in the headlines on Saturday night when an icy exchange between the pair went viral.
Essentially, in a clip that immediately wound up setting the internet ablaze, Brittany could be seen watching as Jackson got turned away from her VIP section of a party.
Rather than caring or doing anything about it, Brittany just went back to dancing.

Naturally, people wondered why Brittany would allow her brother-in-law to be disrespected in this way.

As it turns out, it may have something to do with her new best friend Taylor Swift and her old best friend Kayla Nicole.
It is something of a known fact that Nicole, Travis Kelce’s ex, didn’t take kindly to Brittany switching allegiances.
Jackson, meanwhile, was seen hanging out with Nicole earlier this week.
Some believe that maybe Brittany didn’t like the disloyalty Jackson showed in hanging out with Nicole.
Obviously the speculation is just that – speculation. Still, it sounds like a pretty legitimate theory.
For what it is worth, Patrick Mahomes doesn’t seem to be letting his family troubles bring him down too much.
“The Chiefs will be putting final touches on their preparations today with a walk-through at the Raiders’ facility,” NFL insider Jeff Darlington reported ahead of the Super Bowl.
“They’ll also have final meetings and a team picture. All I keep hearing… Mahomes looks even more dialed in than usual this week. If he plays like he practiced…”
With the Chiefs set to compete for their second consecutive Super Bowl title, everyone involved needs to be on the same page.

That includes family members.
But clearly something is amiss between Brittany and Jackson.
Will the Mahomes family be able to get back on track ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl? Time will tell.
