Taylor Swift makes major donation to family of mom shot and killed during Chiefs parade

Taylor Swift donated $100,000 to the family of the woman shot and killed at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade.

In a pair of $50,000 donations to a GoFundMe campaign set up for Lisa Lopez-Galvan, 43, the pop diva worth an estimated $1.1 billion included her name on the public list and signed each donation.

“Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift,” read the message with each donation.

The GoFundMe fundraiser has topped $207,000 with Swift’s contributions, toward a more modest goal of $75,000,

“This fund has been set up to benefit the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan,” the campaign description reads. “Lisa was celebrating the Chiefs Super Bowl Victory parade when senselessly killed. She is survived by two children and her husband of 22 years. She was an amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend to so many. We ask that you continue to keep her family in your prayers as we grieve the loss of her life. This fund will help provide vital financial support to her family as they process this unthinkable tragedy.”

At least 20 people were injured and Lopez-Galvan, 44, was killed when gunfire erupted outside Union Station — police say the shooting a “dispute between several people.”

Three people were detained after the shooting that prompted another round of demands for gun control, with two of the suspects being juveniles.

Lopez-Galvan was a popular local radio DJ and was celebrating the Chiefs’ defending their Super Bowl title when she was struck by gunfire. Her brother, Beto Lopez, was at the parade but in a different area and he told the Kansas City Star that his sister died on the street near the west side of Union Station.

Swift is in Melbourne, Australia, kicking off a seven-show appearance in the country.

Her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce, tweeted after the shooting: “I am heartbroken over the tragedy that took place today. My heart is with all who came out to celebrate with us and have been affected. KC, you mean the world to me.”

While Kelce is reportedly worth a paltry $50 million in comparison to Swift, it’s not clear if he made a contribution to the campaign.
