Another celebrity has joined Chiefs Kingdom, as Brittany Mahomes convinced Post Malone to don a team jacket during Kansas City’s Super Bowl afterparty, with fans astounded by the singer’s switch of allegiance.
Malone, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, was in Las Vegas to perform one of three anthems played at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday: America the Beautiful.
But, he linked up with the Chiefs after their 25-22 OT win against the San Francisco 49ers, as he performed on stage alongside Marshmello and The Chainsmokers at Zouk Nightclub at Resorts World Las Vegas.
The 28-year-old hitmaker, who hails from the Dallas suburb of Grapevine, Texas, was even willing to put his Cowboys fandom to the side for just a song. Malone’s father, Rich, was the Cowboys’ concessions manager in the early 2000s.
But, footage from the afterparty initially showed Mahomes in a black cut-out Cult Gaia dress coming to center stage to persuade Malone to trade his Cowboys jacket for a Chiefs one.

It took some convincing, as Malone refused to take it off. He was also shocked when Mahomes tired to take off his Cowboys jacket off his back for him, as a way to make things easier.
Malone then agreed to wear Kansas City red, but gestured several times to Mahomes that he would wear her quarterback husband’s team jacket for no longer than a song.
Fans on X, formerly Twitter, and people at XS praised Malone for making light fun of the situation.
‘Love Post Malone! Gracious in putting on the Chiefs jacket lol,’ a user wrote.
‘Post Malone is the coolest man,’ another tweeted.

‘LOVE this!! HE’s part of the [Chiefs] Kingdom now. As a Texan I get it but he can wear red. lol,’ a woman said.
Others referred to the Chiefs-Cowboys’ shared history as a sign that Malone was willing to wear Kansas City red.
‘To be fair, the Chiefs were in Dallas before the Cowboys even existed so it’s not that bad,’ a person shared.
Malone previously got an infamous Chiefs tattoo after losing to Mahomes’ husband, Patrick and Travis Kelce in a beer pong bet in 2020.
