Kate Upton and Diddy may or may not be a thing now
The relationship rumor of the day comes courtesy of the New York Daily News, which insists that Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton is dating hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs. Their evidence is largely that they're Kate Upton and Sean "Diddy" Combs.
The tabloid says the 20-year-old model and the 43-year-old Combs met up at LIV in Miami Beach on March 24, where Diddy was having a party that Upton happened to attend. She made her way to the VIP section, the paper says, where the two allegedly sucked face.
"They were kissing, they weren't hiding it," a source says. Another source says they met up last Thursday for dinner in New York. And somewhere, ex-boyfriend and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander is strangling a stuffed animal.
At least until Upton's rep told TMZ she and Combs "barely knew each other," and Diddy tweeted, " I don't even know Kate Upton personally! I'm not dating her! What's being reported is not true. END of story!" Aw, we were hoping that gossip had some legs.
