Shaq gifted Taylor Swift this $4,495 bedazzled football bag at Super Bowl 2024: ‘The 87!’

This present was a total touchdown.

Taylor Swift arrived at the 2024 Super Bowl in an outfit peppered with tributes to Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs — including a crystal-encrusted Judith Leiber football clutch customized with the tight end’s jersey number.

And as happens, the blinged-out bag wasn’t a gift from Swift’s boyfriend, but rather a surprise from Shaquille O’Neal, who was also in attendance at the big game.

Shaq shared a photo he snapped with the songstress at Allegiant Stadium on Instagram Sunday, confirming in the caption that he and Authentic Brands Group CEO Jamie Salter were behind the pricey present.

Ahead of the game, O’Neal told Page Six he was hoping to meet the 14-time Grammy winner in Sin City.

“If I see Taylor Swift and get to shake her hand, take a picture, I’ll be good,” the NBA legend gushed.

“She’s a fabulous person. I’m happy for her. I’m proud of her. She’s done a lot. She’s definitely a cultural icon,” O’Neal continued. “I just want to shake the hand of greatness.”

The basketball icon isn’t the first big name to bestow one of Judith Leiber’s bejeweled bags upon the world’s biggest pop star; Swift previously unwrapped a shimmering microphone clutch ($4,995) as a birthday gift from the Hunt family, the owners of the Chiefs.

“My mom actually sent Travis a message saying, ‘Hey, like, you need to get her this,’ and he sent her a message back and was, like, ‘I don’t even know if she likes that,’” Gracie Hunt told Page Six at Shaq’s Fun House at XS in Wynn Las Vegas Friday night.

“My mom was, like, ‘Well if you’re not [going to get it], this is our birthday present for Miss Taylor because she needs this. All women love sparkly things.”

Clearly, Shaq knows what he’s doing.
