Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy split up for a number of reasons, some of which might surprise you. The first one, though, is kind of obvious.

“It was the distance. He travels and she travels, and it didn’t work out,” a pal said, adding that the two “were never that serious in the first place.”

Another source begs to differ regarding that second part.

“She liked him and brought him to meet her parents at a football game. She invited him to a lot of family things. She got serious about him quickly."

"He thinks she’s a good person. It just didn’t work out. The fact of the matter is that she is a 21-year-old girl and Maks is 33,” added the insider.

Our source says Maks “panicked” when Kate Upton went apartment-hunting in Manhattan’s Flatiron District to be near his Fort Lee, N.J., residence.

That's when she got the message, and called it off.

"They are really good friends still and speak all the time, but their schedules just made it too difficult and it fell apart," an insider says of the split.

"[Maks] has a lot of respect for her, but it just wasn't working anymore."

The twosome went public with their romance in September, holding hands during a walk in New York City, months after they started dating on the DL.

"We enjoy each other's company very much," said Maks of Kate Upton. "She's a great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this could have happened."

"She's just an amazing person. We have an incredible time together, and, you know, I definitely didn't see that coming and I think neither did she."

We're sorry they split up ... but now you too can have an incredible time, watching the selected Kate Upton videos we put together after the jump:

Long before Kate Upton covered the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in back to back years, Carol Alt took the cover of the annual issue in 1982.

Three decades and 500 magazine appearances later, the 52-year-old is still at it, and she looks amazing on the cover of Galore this month. Beautiful.

Less beautiful? Her opinion of Kate Upton, whom she dissed as "a product of great media hype" and a "large size model." Ouch. The claws are out!

"Without Sports Illustrated, I’m not sure she would’ve made it in the industry as a high fashion model. Because she is more of a large size model," Alt says.

"And even if I’ve seen her in person, and I don’t think she’s in any way fat or overweight or anything. She is just more large-size than fashion models are."

"I think Kate is very good at hmmmm, how do I put it? She’s engaging. She comes to the set prepared to work, and in a good mood, she engages her client."

Supermodel stunner Kate Upton is so famous at such a young age, the 21-year-old hasn't had a chance to experience a lot of things most of her peers have.

One of those things is flip cup, which Jimmy Fallon introduced to her in a clip from earlier this fall (which is still worth watching now, trust us on this one0.

"I didn't go to college. This is what I missed out on: drinking games," Upton said, responding to Jimmy's challenge and revealing that she's "very competitive."

And skilled. Watch her wipe the floor with him below:

A video of Kate Upton nude, save for some strategic body paint and modeling for Sports Illustrated earlier this year, has been released by the magazine.

Thank you, Sports Illustrated. Thank you.

If you recall, Kate got painted up for a SI bikini shoot, only the bikini was just painted on as she attempted to recreate an iconic swimsuit issue cover.

Despite the length of time spent painting her chest by a team of experts at the publication, "I definitely feel naked," Kate Upton said. "Because I am."

Indeed.

Listen up, ladies across the U.S. Kate Upton says Halloween should not be about being slutty or sexy, but rather about "committing" to your costume.

For whatever reason, October 31 has become a de facto Miley Cyrus Day, in which it somehow became acceptable to parade around like naked sex objects.

Kate's a big fan of Halloween, but not a fan of that mentality.

"I don't think that Halloween has to be about being too slutty or too sexy," Kate Upton shared. "I think it's really all about committing to your costume."

What's the best seasonal attire she's ever gone all-out for?

"In the past, I think my favorite costume was being a bottle of Tabasco," she revealed. "I felt like it was my most creative moment. It was a lot of fun."
