Three months ago THE GOSSIP TABLE told you that Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were dating. (Even though a silly gossip mall cop site said we were wrong)
Now we have proof. On Thursday, Kate and her Dancing With The Stars boyfriend, were spotted holding hands as they took a stroll through New York’s West Village.
Kate wore her hair pulled into a ponytail and was make-up free underneath her sunglasses, clearly comfortable around her man to go au naturel. Meanwhile Maksim, was wearing a pink shirt with black trousers and shoes, while carrying a tweed jacket.
Their romantic debut comes just three weeks after Kate firmly stated, ‘We’re just friends,’ when asked by Extra about her rumored relationship with Maksim at the Style Awards.
“Producers have asked Maks to return to DWTS many times,” a pal tells NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB. “But, at the moment he is reviewing lots of different offers, including acting. He will always be grateful to the show but it was time for him to take up different opportunities.”
Including, dating ONE OF THE HOTTEST WOMEN IN THE WORLD! Who wouldn’t give up the Cha Cha Cha for that?
A source tells In Touch “they are getting serious and are both moving to NYC full time to spend more time together. She’s met Mak’s family when she came to Huntington Harbor in August for his godmother’s wedding.”
Wonder if we’ll see Maks in the next SI issue with Kate. We know how he likes to go shirtless!
