Now, if you missed the scandal, then let me fill you in.

Roberts, an actress best known for her roles in Pretty Woman and Leave The World Behind, managed to rally around all the Swifties for a collective scolding after she decided to greet Taylor Swift's boyfriend with a little more than a simple "hello."

A video of the interaction circulating online shows the 56-year-old getting up close and personal with Travis Kelce as they both stood in the private box. Fans saw the star scratching the NFL player's chest before rubbing his shoulders and keeping her hands on his body while he seemingly stood laughing at what she was saying.

Have a look at the video below:


Fans immediately took to the comment section to relay their thoughts on the situation, with many calling Roberts out for her "inappropriate" behavior.

"Not Julia scratching him like a kitty kat," wrote one user, while another added: "Oh dang!! Too close for my comfort. Back up Ms Roberts."

A third also commented: "WTH is Julia Roberts doing to his chest?"

Others also noted that it seemed as though the athlete was trying to pull away from her because he looked "uncomfortable."

"Travis trying to pull bk politely," noted one user and this user also agreed writing: "The way he is kindly trying to pull away."

In the wake of the backlash, Kelce has spoken out about the interaction, referring to Roberts as "awesome."

“I met Julia Roberts in Ireland, in Dublin,” the Kansas City Chiefs tight end gushed on a recent episode of his New Heights podcast on Wednesday. "That was pretty cool."

He noted that the actress was “having some fun” with Stevie Nicks in the VIP tent during Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour show which took place on Sunday.

So there we have it guys - despite what the video may have looked like, Kelce and Roberts are cool so it's all good.

Roberts is one of many famous faces that have attended Swift's Eras shows so far including the likes of Emma Stone, Shania Twain, Billy Joel, Blake Lively, Reese Witherspoon, Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Paul Rudd and of course, Prince William and two of his children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
