Could Kate Upton be dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy? Maksim, as we know, is best known for being a part of Dancing With the Stars, and Kate is obviously known for being ‘the model with curves’ a.k.a. the model that all the guys love and a lot of the girls hate.
According to US Weekly, Kate just celebrated her 21st birthday with her new boyfriend, who witnesses identified as Maksim. A source told the magazine, “It’s very new. They were set up through friends. They just started dating.” The report also adds that both Kate and Maksin, “certainly looked like a couple when they dined a deux at Scalinatella in New York City’s Upper East Side neighborhood. They were very canoodly. It was a very intimate meal.”
Ok, so this is US Weekly, not the Enquirer or Star – where sources are not always 100%. That means that they have a legit source who actually saw them together, and who can be counted on to tell the truth. Of course, Gossip Cop has already jumped to deny the report, claiming that a ‘source close to the situation’ has stated that Kate and Maksim have known each other for a while and are just friends. Of course Gossip Cop also reported that things were fine between Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder when they were already split up….
Really? Friends who canoodle? Obviously, it’s still new and they don’t want it getting out until they themselves decide to confirm it to the public. However, I think that Kate’s team also wouldn’t want something like this to get out. Let’s face it – they’re trying to sell Kate Upton as the next big thing in the modeling world, and a Dancing With the Stars regular is not someone you’d set her up with when you’re looking at that kind of public exposure.
