Kate Upton was spotted having a romantic dinner with professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy!
The curvy 21-year-old model recently started dating the “Dancing With The Stars” professional. What a great looking couple!
Kate Upton celebrated her birthday on Monday with a romantic dinner date in New York City.
A source said of Kate and Maksim’s relationship, “It’s very new. They were set up through friends. They just started dating.”
The rumored couple reportedly held hands under the table as they dined together at the Italian restaurant Scalinatella on New York’s Upper East Side.
An eyewitness said, “They were very canoodly. It was a very intimate meal.”
Several reports say Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy became close after their mutual friends set them up together.
Chmerkovskiy responded on Wednesday about the rumors, claiming his relationship with Kate Upton is platonic. His spokesperson said, “[They’re] just friends.”
Upton is currently shooting the movie “The Other Woman” with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann.
Maksim split from ex-girlfriend and fellow “Dancing with the Stars” pro Peta Murgatroyd before Valentine’s Day in February after dating for 10 months. An insider said, “He wasn’t feeling her anymore. [Murgatroyd] didn’t want it to end”.
Chmerkovskiy, who starred in the Ukrainian version of “The Bachelor” in 2011, was also previously engaged to Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff but the couple called it quits in September 2009.
We are used to celebrities denying they are dating, but we hope they really are a couple.
