Over the summer, rumors that Sports Illustrated cover model Kate Upton and Dancing with the Stars dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy surfaced. While there have been reports that they are “just friends,” another report Friday claims that the two are dating.
Earlier this month, Upton, 21, was asked about Chmerkovskiy at the 10th Annual Style Awards, where she was being presented the Model of the Year Award. “We’re just friends,” she told Extra at the time.
Chmerkovskiy has previously been linked to DWTS co-stars Peta Murgatroyd and Karina Smirnoff. Upton, who has appeared on two straight Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue covers, has been linked to Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin.
