Kayla Nicole Shares Her Letter To Other Black Women

On Monday evening, the 31-year-old took to Instagram to share a video with fans. In the clip, Nicole explained it has always been “really important” for her to use her platform “not to create division.” However, “to elevate and unite women — Black women, specifically.”

Nicole then began to read her open letter.

“Dear Black girl, t

hey may call you a traitor for falling in love,” Nicole began. “You’ll hope the ones closest will protect you, but you’ll 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 you’re not enough. Not successful enough, not wholesome enough, maybe not even intelligent enough…”

The 31-year-old then went on to address the “backlash and embarrassment” she’s endured, seemingly from those who have criticized her for her past interracial relationship with Kelce.

“They’ll say you deserve the backlash and embarrassment because of your Blackness, you should have known better,” Nicole continued. “They’ll even try to tie your value to your net worth. But Black girl, please remember, your value lies elsewhere.”

Nicole continued by explaining that one’s value lies in their character and “resilience.”

“…The way your protect what means most to you, even if it hurts you along the way,” she continued. “And the way you stand up for what means most to you, even though they may never do the same…”

The 31-year-old told viewers that if they are ever faced with similar backlash for their choices, they “do not have to engage.”

“…And when you finally find the strength to speak your truth, it is your voice that will help heal,” Nicole explained.

Nicole then concluded her statements by explaining to viewers that they are not alone and nor is she.

“This is not just my story, a singular experience — my truth, trauma, and vulnerability is a relatable part of the human experience,” the 31-year-old said. “I know I’m not alone, and I want to make sure that you know you aren’t either… Always remember that your story is yours to tell, and you never know whose lives it may touch because there’s always power in community and connection.”

A Brief Look At Travis Kelce’s Rumored Romance With Taylor Swift

As The Shade Room previously reported, Taylor Swift appeared at an NFL game in support of Kelce, who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, in September. At the time, Swift was spotted watching the game alongside Kelce’s mother.

Additionally, the pair were also seen leaving the NFL game together.

Later that month, Kelce seemingly addressed Swift’s outing at the game while hosting his podcast, ‘New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce.’

“I just thought it was awesome that everybody in the suite had nothing but good things to say about her. The friends and family, she looked amazing and everybody was talking about her in great light, and on top of that the day went perfect for Chiefs fans of course,” Kelce explained, per The Shade Room. “To see the slow-motion chest bumps, to see the high-fives with mom, to see how Chiefs Kingdom was so excited she was there, that shit was absolutely hysterical, and it was definitely a game I’ll remember that’s for damn sure and then we just slid off in the getaway car at the end.”

During the episode, Kelce reportedly alluded that he would be keeping details about his relationship with Swift private.
